Noted and passed - Nov. 24, 2014

• 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 ...

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.
