The every-other-year cycle of yard signs and voter passions has again brought Historic Camden onto the playing field as an involuntary political football participant despite our best attempts to stay on the sidelines concerning the future-of-Zemp debate. Historic Camden's position on Zemp Stadium remains unchanged from the two published Historic Camden Blog articles dated November 7, 2011 (http://historiccamdenblog.tumblr.com/).

South Carolina Equine Associates Inc. (SCEA) recently chose the North Central High School (NCHS) chapter of Future Farmers of America (FFA) as this year's recipient of a $537 donation to the program. Sponsored by Zoetis, the animal medication division of Pfizer, the donation is based on the amount of Zoetis products purchased in the year by SCEA -- a group of equine veterinarians and support staff in Camden. SCEA then chooses a different Kershaw County school to receive the donation each year. Showing off a certificate denoting the donation at SCEA's offices are (first photograph, left to right, front ...

The Kershaw County Firearms Discharge Advisory Committee reported making progress by virtue of identifying a particular problem area in one of the unincorporated areas of the county. Kershaw County Councilman Sammie Tucker Jr. formed the committee in July after council dropped a proposed ordinance to regulate firearms. The committee's goal is to write a new draft ordinance that would honor the rights of gun owners while protecting public safety. Tucker said he hoped the committee would draft such an ordinance by Nov. 15.

During the past few weeks, many people have asked me my thoughts about the upcoming referendum vote. I have many friends who stand on both sides of the issue. They have specifically asked my thoughts on the portions that impact the Camden attendance area. After a more than 50-year association with Camden High School (CHS), I offer these points to consider:

The military is known for producing leaders of strong character and ethics. Throughout his military career, Julian Burns proved himself to be one of those successful leaders. You don't earn the rank of major general if you're not among the best the military has to offer … and then you don't go on to be successful at an international corporation unless you have the agility and skills to deliver every single day in the tough business world of today.

If you read my column very often, you surely know what a fan I am of "The Andy Griffith Show." My 33-year-old son, Bill, who lives in Sanford, N.C., also knows it well. After all, he grew up with it, even though it went off the air 12 years before he was born. Thank God for the video cassette recorder, then the digital video disc player and the TV Land cable channel.

Zemp Stadium is celebrating its 85th anniversary, making it the longest continuously operating high school football stadium in the state. As we look back at its history -- as we did Wednesday -- it is also worth taking a second look at its possible future. One outcome is replacement, part of a pair of Kershaw County School District referenda on the Nov. 4 ballot. Under that scenario, Zemp would be replaced at the Camden High School (CHS) athletic complex on Ehrenclou Drive, leaving the original facility to a nebulous future. The cost of a new stadium is estimated at $4.6 million ...
