The completion of the Camden Shopping Center isn't the highlight, with several other major projects in the pipeline.

CAMDEN, S.C. — Camden is planning for growth and already has a few federal and grant-funded projects aimed at bringing in business and industry.

The Camden City Council met Tuesday afternoon and at the top of the agenda was a review of quarterly reports from 12 different entities, one of which was downtown redevelopment.

Based on the report, a new shopping center is at the center of a new business boom in Camden thanks to some federal dollars.

"Well, I think this is a big boom this particular quarter, we've gone from a tax value of $220,000 to a tax value of $6 million, so it's been a success and everyone's looking for jobs," said Suzi Sale, the economic director for Camden.

"We've completed the Brownfields grant program of $300,000 that we were awarded by the federal government," she added. "And this is a resulted in a great, brand new Camden shopping center, and we've got a full line up of tenants."

Sale said the new shopping center has provided a little over 65 jobs, not including seasonal work. And additional money is also expected with the assistance of a second grant.

"We have been awarded another $500,000 grant that we'll be redeveloping another area to bring the tax value up and attract businesses," Sale added. "We have seven targets we're focusing on and we're very excited about that."

One of those targets, she said, is what used to be a radiator shop.

"It's on our main drag coming into Camden, it's got probably six to seven acres associated with it," she said. "So, we're gonna go in there - prime location - we're gonna go in there, assess everything and find out what the owner needs to do to bring it up to code."

And that's not all. The third topic of conversation from the report is the 'Pipeline Report' which covers what's coming soon.

"We're talking to at least three big developers right now that are looking at key spots - actually looking at roughly 22 acres to develop here in town," she said. "And 14 to 15 retailers, hotels, entertainment attractions that we're talking, too, that we hope are going to be able to sign and come online here very soon."

COLUMBIA, S.C. — Midterm Election Day is almost here! Voters across the state will make decisions for many key races, including for governor, U.S. Senate, U.S. House, and even two proposed state constitutional amendments. And there are also plenty of local races for school board, county council, and local ballot referendums.

South Carolina residents registered to vote may do so on election day -- Tuesday, November 8.

WLTX has compiled a guide of frequently asked questions, using information available from the South Carolina Election Commission's website scvotes.gov.

Election Day is Tuesday, November 8, 2022. You can vote on that day, 7 a.m.-7 p.m. at your local precinct listed on your Voter ID card. If you are in line at 7 p.m., you will be allowed to vote.

Early voting in person has now ended - Unfortunately that option came to an end on Saturday. But you still can vote in person Tuesday for Election Day itself.

Make sure your voter registration is up-to-date online at info.scvotes.gov where you can check your personal information, the location of your voting precinct, and which voting districts you are in.

After entering your information at info.scvotes.gov, you can click on the button at the bottom of the window and view the sample ballot you will use when you cast your vote.

Your ballot is tailored to your specific information and location and therefore may differ from your friends' or family member's sample ballot if they live in a different area of South Carolina. All statewide offices -- governor, attorney general, etc. -- will be the same on all ballots, but county council or local commission seats will vary on the ballot.

When voting in person, either voting early or on Election Day, you will be asked to show one of the following photo IDs at your polling place:

Polls open at 7 a.m. on Election Day, November 8, and close at 7 p.m. If you are in line to vote at 7 p.m., you will be allowed to vote.

Richland County Voters Registration and Elections Office wants to remind voters Friday, October 28, is the last day to request absentee ballot applications in order to receive mail-in absentee ballots statewide. You may request them by calling your local Voters Registration and Elections Office or visiting the office in person (in Richland County, that's at 2020 Hampton St., (803) 576-2240). When you receive your absentee ballot, please return it by 7 p.m. November 8, or drop it off at your early voting site.

Failsafe voting allows voters who have moved -- but failed to update their address -- to update their address on election day and vote. The process is available to voters in the following situations:

Failsafe voting applies to municipal elections, with one exception -- the voter must have resided within the municipality for 30 days or more prior to the election to be eligible to vote.

Yes. There is room on the ballot for write-in votes.

On a touch-screen ballot, a candidate's name can be written in by touching the "write-in" space under the appropriate office. A keyboard should pop up and you can enter the candidate

On a paper ballot, write in the candidate's name under the appropriate office using either a pen or pencil and then darken the oval next to the write-in line on the ballot. Stickers, stamps or decals with the candidate's name are not permitted.

SPARTANBURG, S.C. (Wofford Athletics) – Wofford baseball head coach Todd Interdonato announced today the addition of 14 student-athletes who signed National Letters of Intent or letters of commitment to join the Terriers baseball squad in the fall of 2023.

“The 2023 graduating class who has signed with us today is a result of countless hours on the road, games evaluated, phone calls made and received and visits to our incredible campus” said Interdonato. “The on-field talent this group will bring with it is a result of the recent success we have had, specifically in the last two seasons of back-to-back Southern Conference Championships. The quality of each individual is the result of who we are as a college at Wofford and the type of families this astonishing college can attract.

“JJ (Edwards) and Josh (Schulman) have a special way of connecting with prospective student-athletes and sharing our vision for them and their future here. Their work ethic is second to none, and our future success is a result of how committed they are to finding that perfect Wofford fit while evaluating thousands of players.”

The class of 14 covers seven different states with Georgia being the most represented at five future Terriers. Three are from South Carolina, and two are from Ohio. Pitchers comprise a majority of the class at just over half with eight hurlers. The remainder includes a catcher, two outfielders and three infielders.

Interdonato added, “The success of this class will ultimately be determined by the commitment of those in it to develop at the rate we expect, their ability to be coached to our brand of baseball, and their toughness when they realize what is truly takes to succeed at this level.”

Utility rates ‘unlivable’ on Camden City grid

CAMDEN, S.C. (WIS) - Utility rates have reportedly tripled for customers receiving electricity from the City of Camden (COC).COC supplies electricity to about 11,000 residents across city limits and encompassing counties. According to city officials referencing the 2020 census, approximately 7,185 customers reside in Camden.This number indicates that over 3,000 people are without representation in COC’s decision to install a fuel surcharge following the approval of a two-decade power purchase agreement (PPA).&ldquo...

CAMDEN, S.C. (WIS) - Utility rates have reportedly tripled for customers receiving electricity from the City of Camden (COC).

COC supplies electricity to about 11,000 residents across city limits and encompassing counties. According to city officials referencing the 2020 census, approximately 7,185 customers reside in Camden.

This number indicates that over 3,000 people are without representation in COC’s decision to install a fuel surcharge following the approval of a two-decade power purchase agreement (PPA).

“It’s really disappointing... we live in the county,” said Mary Brooks, a Kershaw County resident without a vote in the COC. “But we still get our power from [Camden] city. And that’s not fair.”

According to the 2018 minutes of a council meeting, COC authorized the execution of a 20-year PPA with NTE Energy, a power developer headquartered in St. Augustine, Florida.

Effective January 1 of this year, an NTE subsidiary titled Carolina Power Partners (CPP) initiated the supply of natural gas to COC’s system. CPP’s facility is located in Kings Mountain, North Carolina, and is operated by 21 employees.

Six months after entering the agreement, COC initiated the first system-wide utility increase since 2014.

City Manager Jonathan Rorie told WIS in his first and only interview, that a 10-percent utility increase and fuel surcharge were installed to avoid a municipal deficit.

The utility increase has been postponed until January 2023.

The fuel surcharge turned Purchase Power Adjustment remains in effect.

“The old-boy system is alive and well in Camden... the city is paying for failed pet projects off the backs of their citizens,” said Vickie Dawson of Kershaw.

Dawson echoed the question of countless city and district residents subject to COC’s utility increase: how much is Camden paying for electricity?

In search of this answer and more, Elizabeth Holck kickstarted a comprehensive petition that has since gotten 643 signatures as of Tuesday night.

One COC official responded to our emails for comment. Assistant City Manager Caitlin Young said she would provide more information within the next three days.

“People out here are literally going hungry because of their utility bill,” colluded Dawson. “There’s no excuse for this.”
