Editorial: March Madness

With March Madness -- the annual NCAA college basketball championship tournament -- almost upon us, Kershaw County hoops fans are no doubt ready for the excitement of the lose-once-and-you-go-home affair. Adding special flair this year is the fact that Kentucky is attempting to become the first team to go undefeated since the Indiana Hoosiers pulled off the feat in 1976.

Letter: Former chamber director defends referenda survey

I enjoy letters to the editor by my friend, Charlie Humphries, but I must take issue with the position he took in his letter to the Chronicle-Independent on March 4, 2015. In addressing the issue of a possible second referendum for Kershaw County School District building projects. He states, "This is not an issue the chamber of commerce needs to chime in on."

Mims: Life-long crape myrtle enthusiast has more to say

Letter: Gilland responds to crape myrtle criticism

Please accept my sincere apology for the perceived tone of the recent column on crape murder. My passion for trees can and did, I suppose, get the better of me. I have spent my career trying to educate the public on the actual harm and long-time detrimental effect topping has on trees and it's frustrating to see the practice continue. The column was not intended to belittle or scold, nor was it directed at any one person or scenario. I'm sorry it was interpreted in that way.

Help dogs cope with separation anxiety

Dog owners are typically bewildered when man's best friend exhibits destructive or disruptive behavior. Chewing furniture or urinating or defecating indoors is upsetting for dog owners, who might feel they need to discipline their pooch to ensure it does not happen again. But discipline might not be the remedy for destructive or disruptive behavior, which might be a sign of separation anxiety.
