• We're glad to see Camden native Larry Doby honored with a postage stamp in his honor, one of four Major League baseball players to be so recognized; Joe DiMaggio, the Yankee Clipper, is another, and the final two have yet to be chosen. Doby was the first black player in the American League and carved out an enviable career record. He died in 2003.

Hospitality and tourism

I have never before felt compelled to write a letter to our local newspaper or any other newspaper for that matter, but I do now. I own a business near Camden that draws hundreds of "out of town" people to stay in our motels and B&Bs, buy gas, eat out and shop. This supports my business and injects revenue into our community which obviously is a win/win, so I understand how important tourism can be to our town.

Rec Notes for Aug. 26, 2011

For anyone who hates to exercise, Zumba will feel more like a Salsa party than a workout. Zumba has a fast, energetic workout that is fun and addictive. You get lost in the music and dance and don't realize you're getting such a great workout! This is a great remedy for anyone looking for a fat-burning pick-me-up with a positive energy blast that will leave you feeling happy and energized.

• Property rights vs. community pride is a conflict as old as civilization itself. In recent months, we've reported on two attempts to regulate the appearance of properties in an effort to clean up our communities. Back in October, Kershaw County Council rejected, 3-4, third reading of an ordinance which would have given the county authority to demolish uninhabitable dwellings deemed a nuisance to neighbors or the community at large. More recently, Bethune Town Councilman John Fulmer proposed an ordinance which, if passed in December, would fine owners of blighted properties if they don't clean them up after being ...

Reader: focus on dog owners, not breeds

Regarding your editorial in the Nov. 14 C-I regarding "Pit Bulls," I was disappointed that you chose to use the two recent incidents in Kershaw County as an opportunity to condemn a particular breed of dog, instead of focusing attention on the actual problem, which is the lack of responsible pet ownership. This would have been an appropriate time to support the passage and vigorous enforcement of laws that focus, not on breed, but on people's responsibility for their dogs' behavior. These include measures that hold owners of all dogs accountable for properly housing, supervising and controlling their dogs ...

Letter: ‘If it ain’t broke’ may not serve us well

I read Mr. Charlie Humphries' letter in Friday's Chronicle-Independent with interest. In the letter, Mr. Humphries implies that because the school district is producing strong results, and it is, making investment in the future isn't really necessary right now. As he puts it, the "If it ain't broke" philosophy.
