Looking for 'good junk'

Cassandra Mickle (center), an art teacher at Stover Middle School, has been collecting "good junk" for years. The "good junk" includes Styrofoam meat trays, egg cartons, old magazines, containers with lids, toilet and paper towel tubes and other items. During the past few years, students have used "good junk" items to make creative pieces of art. Due to recent budget cuts, Mickle said she has relied more and more on these items – much of which is donated by the community -- for her art classes. Most recently, a large donation of art sketch pads was given by Dan and Lisa McDonald ...

More spending by public, private sectors would stimulate economy

In August you ran an enlightening editorial on the U.S. government's revenue, appropriations, deficit, and debt levels for fiscal year 2011. By eliminating eight zeroes from each figure, thereby reducing trillions to tens of thousands, you brought the picture down to a scale the hypothetically typical Smith family could relate to; and you reasonably concluded that the unfortunate Smiths would "be headed for financial oblivion."

Does TIF district include train station?

According to an article by Martin L. Cahn in the Chronicle-Independent dated Oct. 26, 2011, Councilman Walter Long, in reference to the TIF district, stated to Councilman Willard Polk: "This even includes a piece of property that you and your wife have asked about and that is the old railroad station." Asked about? Perhaps he should be more accurate. I -- not my husband -- worked for approximately two years to acquire "that old railroad station" for the city, and CSX agreed. However, when it came down to a final agreement, our City Council at that time (which included Long) did not ...

Gene Rollins

Kershaw County has all sorts of unique things that make it a good place to live. One of those is the series of lakeside worship services that's held each summer on the shores of Lake Wateree. The project was begun more than 30 years ago as an outreach of Liberty Hill Presbyterian Church; Gene Rollins was not yet the pastor there, but he came to the church shortly afterward and helped spur phenomenal growth not only at the church itself but at the lakeside services.

Sour grapes and the law

After learning of the four civil lawsuits filed against our newly elected Sheriff Jim Matthews I decided to research some of the facts. I discovered that Sheriff Matthews has a very distinguished career in law enforcement serving this state and this country. He was a peace officer with the city of Columbia, Lexington County and Richland County, and was one of the first three South Carolina law officers to be selected to serve with the Federal Drug Enforcement Administration. He was an instructor for many years at the FBI academy on several subjects; he taught classes on surveillance, undercover surveillance ...

Bears and wolves find a voice in the wilderness

L-EHS student concerned about animal shelter

I am writing this letter about the concerns of the Walter M. Crowe Animal Shelter. Our animal shelter has its pros and cons. The benefits of an animal shelter is it provides protection for those individuals that cannot afford the proper care for their animal. Think about it: what would our city look like if we did not have an animal shelter? There would be dogs and cats running around freely. Every day I ride down Hwy. 1, I see a helpless dog on the side of the rode with its ribs sticking out from lack of nutrients.

Power, divided

We've always believed the United States government works best when power is divided -- that is, with a president from one party and a Congress controlled by the opposite party. As of now, of course, we have a Democratic president and a split Congress, with the House of Representatives controlled by Republicans and the Senate dominated by Democrats. There are multiple forecasting models out there for the upcoming election, with most of them giving the GOP a better-than-even chance of gaining a majority in the Senate while retaining control of the House.

Trees are fascinating biological wonders. From ancient bristle cone pines and towering redwoods out west to our widely diverse Southern forests, the life cycle of a tree provides us with year-round interest. One of the most intriguing and beautiful results of a tree's life cycle is autumn color.
