• We're glad to see that Alzheimer's Disease is finally getting the attention it deserves as far as efforts to combat it. Health experts met recently in Washington to make plans for the first national plan to fight the horrid disease. The top goal in the early draft of the National Alzheimer's Project Act is to prevent and effectively treat the malady by 2025. Finally, public funding and attention could rival that given to cancer and heart disease, and that, of course, is a good thing for the millions of families affected.

YMCA would attract families, spark growth

Two and a half years ago my husband and I decided that it was time to plant roots closer to family. I grew up in a military family bouncing from place to place about every four years so picking the right time to move with minimal emotional repercussions for our daughter was important to us. Growing up, I tried to understand that my parents were making major sacrifices for our country and respected that. With that said, as a kid it always came down to the fact that it took a lot of effort to pick up and make new ...

‘Speed booking’

Sixth-grade students at Lugoff-Elgin Middle School -- including Tyesha Jett, Katelyn Vandevander, Brandon Phillips, Justin Dorton,Otensia Anderson, Turner Stockman, Camille Sullivan, Autum Walker-Cornell, Zac Branham, Elizabeth Talbert, Jay Lynch, Caitlyn Simon, Caden Britton and Greta Tautkus -- participated in "speed booking" during their lunch period. The event was coordinated by Jennifer Lanier, a University of South Carolina intern under the supervision of Anne Lemieux. Students were given 30 seconds to "sell" their book to the student across from them and then they rotated. This experience gave the students the opportunity to discover new books they might be interested in reading and ...

Legislature questions dredging permit

The port issue heated up this week at the State House. Both the House and Senate have resolutions pending that would suspend the authority of the South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control (DHEC) for all decisions it has made since 2007 regarding the navigability, depth, dredging, wastewater and sludge disposal concerning the South Carolina portion of the Savannah River. The legislature argues it gave this authority to the Savannah River Maritime Authority by statute in 2007.

Referendum remains focus

Thank you for the opportunity to clarify the issue of the wording of the current petition on the proposed Camden Sports Complex. It has been suggested that the language seems to be in conflict with the cause of the Camden Recreation Referendum Coalition (CRRC) to let the voice of the people be heard. The driving force behind the CRRC was, is, and always will be the referendum, and the right for citizens to participate in government. However, in order to get to the point of a referendum, the State Code (and City Council) mandates that the format of the petition ...

Would today’s GOP elect Reagan?

Jon Huntsman has suspended his presidential campaign. No one is surprised. He stood out from the rest of the Republican presidential pack as an intelligent voice of reason, diplomacy and international expertise. In other words, he might have been the right man, but these are the wrong times.

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 ...

Reader: focus on dog owners, not breeds

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. As he puts it, the "If it ain't broke" philosophy.
