Gun permits

In reply to the letter on open carry, it is true that many persons do not apply for a permit because it is a form of registration. The government may not know what type of firearm you have, but they will know, unless you used a borrowed firearm to take a class, that you have a firearm. Many do not want to go through the hassle of reapplying every few years for a permit. At the start of the current shall-issue law instead of the old may-issue law, the anti-gun members in the legislature wanted to make it as inconvenient ...

Organizing for Action

Supporters of President Obama say the ratcheting up of a group called Organizing For Action is simply a way for the president to get his message out and pressure Congress to adopt his agenda. Critics say it's a way for big-money donors and special interest groups to buy access to the White House. As the controversy swirls, we are reminded of the Clinton presidency and the brouhaha around "the Lincoln bedroom," which was the practice of allowing large donors to have a sleepover in the White House.

Voices across the decades

On the afternoon of February 15, 2013, the famed Beard Collection began to arrive at the Camden Archives and Museum. On March 5, the last large load arrived around 1 p.m. and the archives was a beehive of activity, with police and firemen carrying collection items in from trucks, cars and vans. As our new curator of collections, Rickie Good, and I checked items in, Mr. Beard told stories and related anecdotes about each one while it was being photographed by the police camera man. This significant collection represents many voices through the years it spans -- from 1514 to ...

Mr. Jones’ deplorable attack

After giving much thought to the article "Jones targets KershawHealth at Tuesday KCC meeting" in the February 15, 2013, edition of the Chronicle-Independent, remaining silent is no longer an option. The fact that Mr. Jones voted to approve the purchase of two ambulances for KershawHealth is overshadowed by his deplorable attack on the administration and members of the KershawHealth Board of Trustees.

Fruitful fire

When I was young, I remember arriving home to find Mom's face was awash with concern and intent. She told me there was a fire down in the pinewoods below the neighborhood. We were evacuating. I remember feeling intrigued by it all. The seriousness never set in until some of my closest friends lost their homes to the flames.

Editorial: Sibby’s legacy

We offer our condolences to the family, friends and all of us who benefited from Sylvia Upton "Sibby" Wood's life. Wood, also known as "Sib," supported or was otherwise involved in so many things here in Kershaw County, they are almost too numerous to count. But count them we shall try as we mourn her death last week in Michigan at the age of 81.

Rich: The legacy of light

Many people have crossed the path of my life, but only one crossed it from three different directions. Don Light, one of Nashville's most admired powerbrokers and star makers, was meant to be part of my life. I say this repeatedly because I encountered him through friends in country music, Southern gospel and NASCAR racing.

Historic Camden’s Did you Know?

While Ben Franklin was key to the crafting of the Declaration of Independence, the other Founding Fathers did not want him to be the main author - as they felt they couldn't trust him not to put a joke in it!

The great, big and wonderful approval of going independent actually occurred on July 2 -- a day which John Adams thought would forever after be celebrated by the newly formed nation. "The Second Day of July 1776, will be the most memorable Epocha in the History of America." He was right about the way we honor it though: "It ought ...
