GOP division

Democrats and independents who want to see President Obama win another term in office got a boost Tuesday when former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum won Republican primary contests in Minnesota, Colorado and Missouri, signaling that the GOP's efforts to coalesce behind Mitt Romney are not working, at least for the time being. Santorum will not receive any delegates from any of the three states, as all were non-binding straw polls -- so-called "beauty contests" in political parlance -- but his success indicates that the right wing of the Republican Party isn't warming up to Romney, whose conservative credentials they consider ...

Living in a crazy world

• We Americans have become the most sensitive, easily offended, quick-to-demand-an-apology, get-our-feelings-hurt, complainingest nation in the history of the world.

Lessons learned, solutions offered through C/KCRD recreation

(This letter is a follow-up to the letter, "Review of organized recreation in Camden, Kershaw County," in the Aug. 10 Chronicle-Independent. It is offered to help close the divisions that have been created, emphasize some lessons learned and review some potential solutions as paths forward to regaining unity, unselfish civic pride, participation and a willingness to "put the needs of the total community first." At all levels of human relationships, especially those involving children, the true measure of leadership is to have someone say that "you care more about your students/athletes/teammates/ constituents than you do about yourself.")

Priorities

I would like to address several concerns that I have as a taxpayer and a concerned citizen. We moved here a few years ago due to the charm, laidback living, and the way everyone took pride in their community. I have been very concerned over all the vacant buildings, one in particular: the old Camden Middle School. It is not only an eyesore, but could be a hot spot for crime and vandalism. This is not the type of first impression of our town that we want to give.

Political polls

Like voters across the United States, we in Kershaw County are in the midst of being pummeled by almost constant "poll news." It seems that nearly every day there is a new political poll proving that one candidate or the other is the strongest choice for the White House. During the entire Republican primary, various candidates have pointed to polls showing them as most likely to defeat President Obama in November. Mitt Romney and Newt Gingrich are both touting themselves as the only member of the GOP who can unseat Obama in the fall.

Pride and humility

It has become somewhat of an art for me, that of studying Southern culture and deciphering what makes us different from others as well as downright peculiar among ourselves.

The storytellers of Dillon County

Our family has spent many a pleasant summer day with several families from the Dillon area and the experience is always enjoyable and the manner in which they address their friends, neighbors and kinfolk is like taking a step back in the "Old South." Everyone seems to have a prefix or you are a tourist just stopping by.

Team player

Lugoff-Elgin High School Principal Worth Thomasson braces himself for a splash of icy cold water as L-EHS football players and cheerleaders look on. Thomasson agreed to be "dunked" if L-EHS students raised $5000 by Thursday morning to donate to the United Way of Kershaw County. Students ended up raising $5300. "We wanted something that would get the kids involved in with a team aspect ... It kind of goes along with the United Way spirit, you can give a dollar, and that dollar goes a long way," Thomasson said. See more pictures in our Localife section.

Noted and passed - Aug. 25, 2014

• Every now and then a story just makes you want to puff up with pride. We had one Wednesday, and we'll have another this Wednesday, both on the same subject: the renaming of the I-20 bridge over the Wateree River for Kershaw County's three medal of honor winners. Richmond Hobson Hilton, John C. Villepigue and Donald Leroy Truesdell are heroes out of history in no uncertain terms. In our preview story, readers learned that Hilton charged gunners firing at his squad, firing until his ammunition was spent, killing six enemies and capturing 10, but lost an arm as ...
