I write this letter in response to an article in your paper entitled "Episcopal Church is right to recognize gay unions." It saddens me to read once again of supposed "Christians" approving of what the Bible clearly says is wrong. "Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived; neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor homosexuals, nor thieves, nor the covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers, will inherit the kingdom of God." Corinthians 6:9-11.
Kershaw County Council Chairman Gene Wise is right in recommending to council members that they thoroughly vet people before placing them on the board of directors of KershawHealth. In the past, recommendations have primarily been rubber-stamped by the council; that doesn't mean highly qualified people weren't placed on the board, because there have been. Many county citizens have served faithfully and skillfully as the local hospital has navigated its way through a rapidly changing marketplace. But having competent board members is more necessary now than ever before because of a variety of changing federal mandates as well as ...
At the beginning of one school year, I entered my room to see an extra row of filled desks as well as students enough to fill another row. There was hardly enough room to squeeze sideways through the rows to give help. If anyone had tried, bending would have presented a posterior to the pupil in the desk on the adjoining row. The students looked at me; I looked at them. Then they began to beg. "Please, Ms. Pruett, do not move any of us." They were smart enough to know no teacher could have so many students in one ...
WASHINGTON -- The video of James Holmes from inside the Arapahoe County Courthouse was as mesmerizing as it was creepy. His fluorescent mop of pink and orange hair. His vacant eyes, alternately bulging and droopy. Was he medicated? Crazy? Vamping for the camera? And the question, unbidden and against journalistic interest: Should we really be seeing this? Is justice best served by having a camera in this courtroom?

Few resources are as inexpensive yet inherently valuable as the daily newspaper. For as little as the loose change in their pockets, readers can get all their local news, as well as learn what is going on in their communities and, for sports fans, what happened during last night's games.

One thing which makes Camden so appealing is its attention to and love for trees. The city is graced with thousands of them, and they add immeasurably to the atmosphere of our municipality. The Camden Tree Foundation and its many volunteers work tirelessly to plant new trees and keep existing ones healthy, and the city of Camden has had the foresight to hire a professional to oversee the arboreal health of the area. But a recent newspaper column by the town's urban forester, Liz Gilland, was a bit troubling in its tone.
Recently, a rather important occasion went unnoticed in Camden. Bob Sheheen retired after 38 years on the board of the Carolina Cup Racing Association. In many of these years, he served as vice chairman.
I am writing to "educate" some folks with the Kershaw County school board regarding the article that came out in the Chronicle-Independent newspaper on Feb. 20, 2015.
Last November, we voted down the referendum that would empower the KCSD to tear down usable and functioning schools and construct replacement along with a new or rehabilitated Camden High football stadium. All it was going to cost was $130 million plus interest. But, fear not, they also asked us to approve a "penny" sales tax to pay for it.
