When the modern food stamp program began as a pilot project in 1961 -- it was authorized as a permanent program three years later -- those in charge probably never envisioned a day when people might walk into fast-food restaurants, order up a huge container of French fries and then pull out their food stamps to pay. But that's what's happening in some places today, and restaurant owners are pushing for a bigger share of the pie.
This edition of the Chronicle-Independent may well contain a front page story by reporter Martin Cahn detailing the events at the Camden City Council meeting of Sept. 13. As reporters are properly tasked to present facts free of emotion or judgment, the actual tone of that council meeting may not be accurately reflected in Mr. Cahn's article. I submit this letter, therefore, for those citizens not able to attend that council meeting, and who ...
If there are "moderate" Muslims, I still hear critics ask since the Sept. 11 attacks, why don't they condemn Islamic terrorism? In fact, most Muslims do condemn such barbaric acts but their critics aren't always listening.
The late comedian George Carlin made people laugh for decades, oftentimes with his own brand of off-color humor. You wouldn't ordinarily think of him writing a piece that would be appropriate for Christmas reflection, but I ran across this recently. Written shortly after his wife died, it's worth sharing:
I am writing in regard to the wonderful letter by Mr. Ashby Rhame – "Help our veterans, help our VA Service Office." I could not agree more as a member of American Legion Post 17 here in Camden.

They have been most helpful to veterans in this county.

This is a copy of my letter to the Camden Planning Commission and to Camden City Council. I have had many phone calls from people concerned about this proposed ordinance, as well as calls from my neighbors supporting my having roosters. I have been advised that I am grandfathered, but more restrictive covenants, and zoning ordinances are not the answer for Camden. Any noise nuisance noise cases should be handled on an individual basis, ...
"We are Camden, a place surrounded by history. Long a home of Native Americans, we were founded not long after Carolina was separated into North and South. Here, King Haigler, the Catawba chief, worked for peace among natives and colonists along the banks of the Wateree. Here, Patriots suffered one of the worst defeats in the Revolutionary War. Yet, from this place the tide of war would turn and ultimately lead to victory for ...

One of the many problems in politics today is that many elected officials begin to believe they are smarter than the electorate and feel they should be able to make decisions that contravene public attitudes. They justify this, of course, in a myriad of ways. The recent resignation of a Colorado state senator is the ultimate in arrogance when it comes to ignoring the voters and trying to circumvent ...
