SNAP's direction

When the modern food stamp program began as a pilot project in 1961 -- it was authorized as a permanent program three years later -- those in charge probably never envisioned a day when people might walk into fast-food restaurants, order up a huge container of French fries and then pull out their food stamps to pay. But that's what's happening in some places today, and restaurant owners are pushing for a bigger share of the pie.

Citizens won't be silenced by actions, words of city leaders

This edition of the Chronicle-Independent may well contain a front page story by reporter Martin Cahn detailing the events at the Camden City Council meeting of Sept. 13. As reporters are properly tasked to present facts free of emotion or judgment, the actual tone of that council meeting may not be accurately reflected in Mr. Cahn's article. I submit this letter, therefore, for those citizens not able to attend that council meeting, and who must rely on Mr. Cahn's version of fact.

'Moderate Muslims'? Right here

If there are "moderate" Muslims, I still hear critics ask since the Sept. 11 attacks, why don't they condemn Islamic terrorism? In fact, most Muslims do condemn such barbaric acts but their critics aren't always listening.

And always remember...

The late comedian George Carlin made people laugh for decades, oftentimes with his own brand of off-color humor. You wouldn't ordinarily think of him writing a piece that would be appropriate for Christmas reflection, but I ran across this recently. Written shortly after his wife died, it's worth sharing:

Additional support would help VA Service Office assist veterans

I am writing in regard to the wonderful letter by Mr. Ashby Rhame – "Help our veterans, help our VA Service Office." I could not agree more as a member of American Legion Post 17 here in Camden. I can speak firsthand of the help I have received from my local Post No. 17 and the local VA office with VA Officer Mr. Billy Bell and Mr. Bell's assistant, Barbara Ray. They have been most helpful to veterans in this county.

A smoker's lung disease called COPD

COPD, which stands for chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, is now the third leading cause of death in the U.S., having recently passed stroke. COPD is a lung disease usually caused by years of cigarette smoking, often 10 years or more. The latest information on tobacco use in S.C. shows that about 720,000 adults are smokers and each year more than 6,000 persons die from smoking. Almost 50 percent of S.C. adults are current or ex-smokers, thus are at risk for COPD. The good news is that smoking rates are much lower than in the 1960s ...
