• We start with a tip of the Chronicle-Independent hat to Jim and Pat Watts for their giving ways in helping the Fine Arts Center (FAC) of Kershaw County construct and open a new performing arts wing at the center. The new 3,876-square foot-wing, dedicated in their name at the FAC's recent annual meeting, will allow the center to expand its theater arts education and performance programs. It's a great addition to the FAC campus for which we say, "Bravo!"

Newspapers continue to deliver

As a teenager in Pennsylvania, I delivered The Morning Call and The Evening Chronicle to customers in a suburb of Allentown. On rainy days, I'd try to make sure the paper stayed dry inside the screen door. Now, I get The State and the New York Times delivered to my driveway in plastic bags, though the Times delivery is erratic. I can, of course, also read the Times on my iPhone, iPad and desktop computer.

‘We The People’

We the People have the power to make changes in Congress. In fact, In November, members of Congress that are seeking reelection and have not been serving our country and its people (as they should have been) can be eliminated by voting for another that is best suited to serve the people (even a write-in candidate.) "The people are responsible for the character of their Congress. If that body be ignorant, reckless, and corrupt, it is because the people tolerate ignorance, recklessness, and corruption. If it be intelligent, brave and pure, it is because the people demand those high qualities ...

We need a leader

In reading several editorials in various media lately, yours seems to be on the same theme that the god Obama needs to be given four more years to finishing destroying this country. He hasn't been able to do what he needs to do so let's give him some more time. Time to lecture us on how we should not speak ill of anyone unless they do not have liberal ideas. Time to keep saying everything is not my fault and you need to blame someone else (just who is he going to blame if reelected). Time to lecture ...

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 ...
