Computers are available

This is in response to the article in the Chronicle Independent on Friday, July 20, 2012. County Council Vice Chairman Sammie Tucker Jr. was quoted as saying he did not have "ready access" to a computer. Thus the reason he had not filed appropriate paperwork for his position on Kershaw County Council. I would like to take this opportunity to inform Mr. Tucker that we, Kershaw County, have a public library with "ready access" to computers. The hours are as follows:

'Unthinkable' to keep Tucker

It is truly "unthinkable" that the Kershaw County Democratic Party would certify Sammie Tucker Jr. as a candidate for public office. To entertain that idea is ludicrous! To readily admit to people that he is not only an incumbent candidate for office but is actually the current Kershaw County Council Vice Chairman should be embarrassing to all citizens of Kershaw County. Realize, too, that Mr. Tucker is set to have no opposition!! Have our citizens completely given up on our political system? Are they now satisfied to let "whatever happens happen?"

Editorial: Big money Dems

The ever-present cable news shows are already fixated on the 2016 presidential campaign, with the Republican race a wide-open affair and the Democratic nomination said to be Hillary Clinton's for the asking. Of course, we'll point out Clinton was also the overwhelming favorite in 2008 until Barack Obama came along and stole her candy. But one thing's for sure, no matter whom the parties nominate: massive amounts of money will be spent.

Moment of Nature - Feb. 27, 2015

Murder is a strong word and truth be known it's not really what happens (unfortunately) when a crape myrtle, a Southern signature tree is topped, but it has become a familiar vernacular amongst plant people. If crape myrtles did in fact die when they were butchered, then the practice would stop.

Winter visions

When snow fell on Kershaw County on Tuesday, local shutterbugs took out their cameras (or smartphones) and took some pictures. In the first photo is Reid Graham and his snowman in a picture posted to the C-I's Facebook page by his grandmother, Linda Fender Graham. The second picture is a photo of some daffodils in the snow taken by former C-I editor Martha Bruce near the corner of Mill and Haile streets. It's "kind of a 'mixed message' of winter and spring," she said.
