Letter: Camden needs to grow, but more answers needed

As a property owner of land contiguous to Beechwood and also as a citizen interested in seeing Camden move forward, I appreciate the opportunity to express my views via our local newspaper. I am not opposed to an upscale retirement community being developed on the Beechwood property. I think it could add value to our city, if properly executed, and be a good business proposition for the developers and future residents.

Letter: Reader’s proud of people in Charleston

Words fail me to express just how proud I am of the people in Charleston for the class they have exhibited in handling a senseless, tragic act of violence committed by a psychologically impaired individual. In this day and time, when our society seems to be seeking lower and lower morals and displaying less belief in God, it is the first and most encouraging sign of hope for salvation of our society I have seen in a number of years.
