Editorial: Recycling glass

It's unfortunate the city of Camden and Kershaw County had to announce they could no longer accept glass for recycling in residents' bins or at the county's recycling centers.

Reader says immigrants, others get more help

I am a 70-year-old single lady who lives on Social Security. I have been a caregiver since I was 12 years old, but I can no longer work due to health problems. Wow, so much for the golden years and don't let me forget to mention the wonderful Medicare that we have to get whether we want it or not.

Reader: remove illegal immigrants

It is my opinion all illegal immigrants should be removed from our country. I believe, however, it "ain't" going to happen. Some say, "How can you remove 20 million people?" My answer is, "One at a time," if necessary. But it does become more difficult by the day because more are coming in every night. Let's face it: we are making no real effort to stop it.
