A GOOD Reason to Stay Equestrians thrive in Kershaw County

Story By Renee Elder

F

oxhunting brought Janice Coley to Kershaw County, but it was the enthusiasm of the community that made her want to stay. As publisher of The Camden Equestrian, board member of the South Carolina Equine Promotion Foundation and Secretary for the Thoroughbred Retirement Foundation South Carolina Committee, Coley is immersed in a network of horse enthusiasts. Yet just five years ago Coley was a resident of Charlotte, leading the fast-paced life of a successful advertising executive. “My mother often told me I lived too fast, and finally I realized

she was right,” Coley says. “In 2003 I bought a horse, Kirby, who became my best friend and changed my life.” A New Home in Camden In addition to participating with Kirby in hunts and equestrian activities around Charlotte, Coley made the hour-long drive once or twice a week to hunt and ride the trails in Camden. In the spring of 2006, she decided to stay. “I liked the informality of a small town,” she says, “the pace is slower, and you can take time to get to know people.” After living in Camden for a year, Coley realized the depth of

the area’s equine heritage. “It’s not a rural area with some horse farms scattered about; it is a true ‘horse town,’ which has supported jobs and businesses for decades. The stories are endless and new ones are being made every day.” The Camden Equestrian Coley conceived the idea of publishing a magazine that would celebrate the community and its unique place in the equine industry. The Camden Equestrian, a full-color, high-quality glossy magazine was born, sharing stories and promoting business. “Bringing people together is what it’s all about. Business owners

know their customers by name and care about their interests.” Readers from 14 states subscribe to The Camden Equestrian to keep in touch with the area’s training, hunting, showing and other horserelated activities. Although Coley lost her best friend Kirby this year, another horse soon turned up “out of the blue,” she says. “He is a beautiful Thoroughbred off the track, and I’m sure Kirby is happy that I have a new friend.” Thoroughbred training facilities

like The Camden Training Center bring in hundreds of Thoroughbred racehorses each year. “The footing and climate is great for horses. Camden has arguably the finest training facilities in the country,” Coley says. The South Carolina Equine Park, the National Steeplechase Museum, Springdale Race Course and the Camden Equine Rehabilitation & Conditioning Center draw people here, further contributing to the quality of life.

Coley enjoys living on her small horse farm and running her equine-themed business, which promotes the area for others to enjoy. “I would encourage anyone to consider Kershaw County. Our area is blessed with an abundance of natural beauty, outdoor recreation, a large historic district, festivals, shopping and dining. There is always something to do, even if it is sitting in the barn smelling the hay.”

“... Camden has arguably the finest training facilities in

Janice Coley moved here from Charlotte in 2006 and founded The Camden Equestrian, a magazine that keeps readers in touch with the area’s many horse-related activities.

WORK IN PROGRESS County proud to be ready for business

Story By Laura Kimball | Photography By todd bennett

A

sk companies like Target and Kawashima Textiles why they chose Kershaw County as a place to do business, and their answers will include several factors. A skilled workforce, excellent transportation infrastructure, proximity to the state capital of Columbia and low operating costs will probably be among the reasons. But most important, Kershaw County was ready – ready to work. That is why Southeast Renewable Energy announced in late 2010 that it is constructing a $50 million biomass plant in Kershaw County that 8

Ke r s h aw C o u n t y

will ultimately hire 20 employees. The plant is scheduled to open in late 2012. Ready, Set, Go As an active participant in the state’s readySC program, Kershaw County is ready to seamlessly start up new facilities, identify company needs and train local workers to meet the challenges of evolving industries in a changing world. The readySC program acts as an outsourced human resources department, at little or no cost to the company, by recruiting and advertising, developing a relevant curriculum and


educating trainers and potential new workers. ReadySC has trained 1,655 workers at companies in Kershaw County, including Advanced Performance Tech, BlueCross BlueShield, DANA Corp., Hardwicke Chemical, Heritage Embroidery, Kawashima Textiles, Target and Veratec.

stores in the Carolinas, Georgia and Virginia, which are all easily accessible from the nearby interstate system. Growing Service Sector Kershaw County seeks to continue growing its industry by targeting the business services sector, which includes call centers, corporate offices, claims and processing centers, and more. One of the latest developments to recruit these types of businesses is a virtual call center spec building in Wateree Executive Park, which consists of virtual plans for a 60,000-square-foot building made available to companies for review. Without the costly investment of bricks and mortar, Kershaw County is able to offer new businesses a tangible site, complete with a 3-D video of the virtual building. When a business decides to call the building home, construction of a shell building can be completed in 90 days or less.

Regionally Speaking Meanwhile, on a more regional level, the Central SC Alliance, a group of 10 counties and one city in the heart of the state, pools assets to attract capital investment and jobs. In addition, Central Carolina Technical College in Camden/Sumter and Midlands Technical College in Columbia offer industrial training and occupational education to workers in Kershaw County through their continuing education programs and credit courses.

Location That’s Right on Target Since these products must be able to reach consumers quickly, another reason for choosing the area as a home base is location. Kershaw County is located halfway between New York and Miami, and is within 24-hour ground access to more than 70 percent of the U.S. market. These logistics affect the Target Distribution Center, which has more than 40 acres under one roof and recently underwent a $70 million expansion to become the retailer’s largest distribution center in the U.S. It serves Target

Automotive Assets All these efforts have a tangible economic result, as Kershaw County is home to a small but growing base of automotive-related manufacturers. Kawashima Textiles USA makes car seat fabric, South Carolina Yutaka Technologies manufactures catalytic converters, and Dana Corporation produces trailer modules. Other area companies are the source for products such as aluminum wheels, filter elements and more.

ne of the most historic buildings in all of South Carolina now houses the Kershaw County Chamber of Commerce & Visitors Center. The old Robert Mills Courthouse in downtown Camden was constructed in 1825 and then expanded in 1845, and the building was designed by architect Robert Mills who also designed the Washington Monument. Mills is also responsible for several other landmark structures in South Carolina and the Southeast. “It is interesting being headquartered in a building that dates back to before the Civil War,” says Liz Horton, executive director of the Kershaw County Chamber of Commerce & Visitors Center. “The building served as Kershaw County’s courthouse until 1906, when a new courthouse was built on the location of the present day courthouse. The Mills building went through a number of different owners until the chamber bought it in 1999.” Horton says the chamber has been in the building since the mid-2000s, with offices on the first floor of the two-story structure. “When you’re in a building this old, funds are always needed for upkeep and restoration, and to date, nearly $1.5 million has been spent on restoring the building back to its 1845 condition,” she says. “In fact, we just recently received another grant and have spent $40,000 for additional renovations, replacing tile and restoring floors throughout the structure.”

purchased bricks to highlight their special event.” The courthouse is easily accessible off Interstate 20 at exit 98, en route to the downtown district of Camden. “Being such an old building, visitors like to stop in and see the facility itself before picking up brochures that detail other attractions throughout the community,” Horton says. “The building has been restored with modern conveniences, but still has its charm. You won’t see many 1825 buildings equipped with wireless Internet, but this one is.” – Kevin Litwin

Horton says most of the upgrades have been paid for by grants and private donations, and a Brick Walkway program is also in place with commemorative bricks installed and engraved along the promenade in front of the courthouse. “Bricks sell to the public for $100 apiece and can be in honor of someone who has passed away, or to commemorate an event or a variety of other reasons,” she says. “This old courthouse hosts a lot of weddings, and several brides and grooms have

Todd Bennett

Like many progressive areas of the country, Kershaw County embraces the farm-to-table movement, a push by consumers to buy food directly from local farmers, thereby reducing “food miles” on products and supporting local agriculture at the same time. Oh, and it also happens that fresh food tastes better. In fact, Kershaw County restaurants such as the Mill Pond Steakhouse, located in Rembert, go out of their way to use fresh, local ingredients. For the Mill Pond’s Fried Green Tomato Napoleon, a popular appetizer, chefs seek out local tomatoes, which are fried and then layered with cheese and lump crab meat. Along the same lines, several Kershaw County restaurants participate in South Carolina’s Fresh on the Menu program. Launched in 2008 and part of the Certified SC initiative, Fresh on the Menu encourages local chefs to ensure that at least 25 percent of their menus include South Carolina-grown foods. Restaurants involved in this

oldest active polo field in the United States. In fact, equine activities have played a leading role in Kershaw County’s culture for generations. Called the Steeplechase Capital of the World, Kershaw County hosts two large steeplechases every year. Carolina Cup kicks off the spring season, along with elaborate tailgating and bright spring fashions. An estimated 50,000 fans crowd into the Springdale Race Course for a day of racing and outdoor activity, making this rite of spring the largest steeplechase race meeting in North America. The Colonial Cup, held in the fall, is the last big equine event of the year, although Springdale Race Course, a 600-acre racehorse training center, operates all year. – Laura Kimball

Private Schools

Camden Military Academy

I

n Kershaw County, the opportunities for education are seemingly endless. Whether you’re a parent looking to enroll your child in a public or private school, or an adult seeking higher education, Kershaw County has you covered.

Public Schools In the Kershaw County School District, wireless, high-speed networks connect all 20 schools. The district also was the first in South Carolina to provide individual laptops to all high school students and teachers, a program called i-CAN that started in 2005. In addition to i-CAN, the school

district is completing a plan that will provide all children with equal learning opportunities and facilities throughout the county. A school construction program, budgeted at $102.2 million, includes two middle schools, new athletic facilities at all three high schools, a new elementary school and two elementary school renovation projects. While these improvements prepare students for the future, KCSD is also proud of its present accomplishments. The district’s 2009 Palmetto Assessment of State Standards scores were equal to or better than state averages in 19 of 24 categories, according to the South Carolina

Kershaw County School District Tests Well It was a good year for the Kershaw County School District. All three of its high schools were among 72 recognized by the state for high achievement on either ACT or SAT college entrance tests. The

Kershaw County’s private schools also offer quality options. The Camden Military Academy, dating to 1892, is a private boarding school for boys with a statewide reputation as the official military school of South Carolina. Other options include a Montessori school, parochial schools and several private schools in nearby Columbia, the state capital.

Higher Education Also in Columbia is the main campus of the University of South Carolina, providing area residents with higher education opportunities, including advanced degrees, while remaining close to home. In Camden and nearby Sumter, Central Carolina Technical College offers a wide selection of programs including an extensive online program. Currently, the school enrolls 15,000 students each year in associate degree, diploma and certificate programs. – Laura Kimball

seniors’ average composite scores on the ACT reached an all-time district high. The test is composed of four sub-categories, and Kershaw students stayed the same or improved in each category, with the biggest improvements made in the English category. The local average score increased two-tenths of a point to 20.2 on a 36-point scale.

Lake Wateree, one of the state’s oldest manmade lakes, is a huge draw for fishers and boaters. With more than 13,000 surface acres and 242 miles of shoreline, the lake offers bountiful crappie, bass, catfish and bream. Lake Wateree State Park features a lakeside campground, nature trail, picnic area, playground, tackle shop/store and a boat ramp. The Wateree River, Goodale State Park and Kendall Lake are nearby.

Shooting sports also occupy a good bit of free time in Kershaw County, with activities ranging from skeet shooting and a sporting clays course at Hermitage Farm Shooting Sports in Camden to quail hunting at Back 40 Wing & Clay in Bethune. Another popular hunting and fishing locale is PowderKegg Wildlife Preserve, in Cassatt,

Programs open to the public include dance classes – including South Carolina’s state dance, the shag – gymnastics, tennis lessons, martial arts, swimming, playgrounds and more.

Other golfing options include Green Hill Golf Club, which is a nine-hole regulation course in Lugoff, the 18-hole White Pines Golf Course in Camden, Bethune Country Club, and Pickett-Thomas Park and Golf Club. – Laura Kimball
