Lessons learned, solutions offered through C/KCRD recreation

(This letter is a follow-up to the letter, "Review of organized recreation in Camden, Kershaw County," in the Aug. 10 Chronicle-Independent. It is offered to help close the divisions that have been created, emphasize some lessons learned and review some potential solutions as paths forward to regaining unity, unselfish civic pride, participation and a willingness to "put the needs of the total community first." At all levels of human relationships, especially those involving children, the true measure of leadership is to have someone say that "you care more about your students/athletes/teammates/ constituents than you do about yourself.")

Priorities

I would like to address several concerns that I have as a taxpayer and a concerned citizen. We moved here a few years ago due to the charm, laidback living, and the way everyone took pride in their community. I have been very concerned over all the vacant buildings, one in particular: the old Camden Middle School. It is not only an eyesore, but could be a hot spot for crime and vandalism. This is not the type of first impression of our town that we want to give.

7 ways to not be ruled by lists

Lists can rule over us like dictators who sport perfectly coiffed hair, pterodactyl brooches and high heels. Many of us know what it's like to be governed by our own to-do lists, driving some of us to become "anti-list-ivists" who refuse to write anything down.
