South Carolina GOP primary

South Carolina Republicans have long taken pride in the fact that the state's first-in-the-South primary has attracted a great deal of national political attention, and indeed, Palmetto State GOP voters have had an uncanny knack for picking the eventual party candidate. So it gives the state a great deal of clout among Republican candidates who want to gain momentum as they head into the election season's final year. As we've noted before, we aren't keen on the fact that candidates for the White House announce soon after a president has been chosen, setting up what is ...

The Fan

Dark clouds have been lifted, giving way to blue (and white and orange and black and garnet) skies -- football season is back. For this, fans of every age and team color are grateful. And with immense pride and bliss, they don the jersey of their beloved team; their team that will go all the way this season. At least that's what we, the fans, want to believe; it's what we hold on to year after year as if "it" was the winning lottery ticket; a victorious season in our clutches. Fans want to believe this is the moment ...

'Courageous'

I would like to take this opportunity to say a big "thank you" to the Trivetts, owners of the Little Theatre in Camden. They very generously reduced the price of tickets for the movie "Courageous" and also donated tickets to all law enforcement officers in Kershaw County. "Courageous" was not just another Hollywood movie. A church in Georgia puts it on and the actors are actually members of the congregation and staff. Now that in itself might keep some people from going. A "Christian" movie with regular people doing the acting. Sounds to some like a low B grade movie ...

Cain is 'the real deal'

Mr. Cain was my presidential pick well before the Florida straw vote. He strikes me as genuine, intelligent, honest, and he knows his business stuff. He will give us the hope and change we need in this country. He will repeal punishing regulations and open up markets for energy independence and trade. He will lead in making the business climate friendly and inclusive so they will know what their long-range goals are and they will hire again. He will be a uniter, not a divider. His leadership will encourage Congress to work together to establish his 9-9-9 Tax Plan transitioning ...

Noted and passed - Sept. 29, 2014

• Congratulations to everyone who participated in the Fine Arts Center's (FAC) "Dancing With the Stars" event. We think we can place it firmly in the "fun(d)raising" category, in that it not only raises money for the FAC, but raises the fun quotient with folks getting to see some of Kershaw County's notable residents doing their best to shimmy and shake or tango across the stage. Extra congratulations to Tyke Redfearn and Ginny Marshall for winning the technical award for best dance routine, and to Eric Boland and Amanda Smith for earning the People's Choice Award ...

Reader: Zemp answer raises questions

The Kershaw County School Board response in Monday's Chronicle-Independent to Scott Jordan's statement on Zemp Stadium is nothing if not informative. If you haven't been paying attention, the school district has proposed a facilities referendum for the November election which would, among other things, abandon Zemp Stadium while spending millions of additional taxpayer dollars on a new stadium on Ehrenclou Drive.
