Hootie has moved into his treehouse on Princess Pond Rd. What a mysterious, wise, and handsome guy he is! Many hours are spent observing activity on PP. If you stop, listen, and use a little imagination, you may hear him softly singing his favorite song–“EVERY MOVE YOU MAKE, EVERY STEP YOU TAKE, I’LL BE WATCHING YOU”. Occasionally. “WHO WHOOO, WHO ARE YOU” echos through the silent dark night. What a hoot living in PP forest and meeting all the PersonaliTree neighbors

Questions have been raised regarding the restructuring of the performance zone requirements. In recent Clarendon County Council meetings, a first and second reading, as well as a public hearing, has occurred regarding an ordinance which would disallow solar farms within the performance zone.

“This was originally around the lake in our high-development areas. We wanted to maintain control… Read the rest

In March of this year, Gregg Wilgus accepted the invitation from Lake Marion Christian Church to lead the Church in their Christian development. Founded in November of 2011, Lake Marion Christian Church strives to present the Restoration Plea to Clarendon County. Rather than an attempt to reform the Church, Restoration Movement Churches attempt to restore Christianity as it is found in the Bible. While we don’t think of ourselves as the only Christians, we do call ourselves Christians only, as Acts 11 labeled the followers of Jesus. We attempt to live by the motto: “in essentials, unity; in opinion, liberty;… Read the rest

When a neighborhood comes together to do something that is meant to build a sense of community and camaraderie, this is generally accepted as a good thing. The Neighborhood Crime Watch Zone is an example of a program that encourages neighbors to look out for one another. When people look out for one another this builds up and unifies neighbors and encourages a sense of well-being and a safe environment in which to live.
There is one such community located in North Santee called Princess Pond. This community met with the late former sheriff, Randy Garrett, a few years ago… Read the rest

Ah, Labor Day! That wonderful holiday that celebrates workers, work and time off. Labor Day is the official start of fall as far as I’m concerned. It is also a day that throws off school schedules, football games and still confuses us about whether it is summer or fall.
My dad first told me about Labor Day when I was a little fellow. He told me that we had this holiday to celebrate workers and their jobs. I had no idea what that all meant. I didn’t have a job, I didn’t go to school and everyday was just about… Read the rest
