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 ...

(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.")

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.

It seems like everyone is in a race to be the best -- the best parent, the best spouse, the best neighbor, the best PTA president. To become the best, people often lose sight of the things that really matter. Unfortunately, I've even seen this in my own life. As my husband worked toward a law degree, I pushed forward, day after day, trying my best to be a supportive wife -- the best homemaker, the best mom, the best neighbor, etc. But I often found myself burned out and discouraged. At times, I just couldn't do it.

If you are a childless couple yearning to be parents, adoption may be the perfect plan "B" for you. My husband and I were such a couple. From the beginning, our plan "A" included bringing children into the world. We were each raised in families that provided us with siblings, so we not only wanted a child, we wanted siblings for our children. As children, we loved our brothers and sisters. As adults, we love them even more.
