Voter ID

In a day when Democrats and Republicans will argue about what color the sky is or whether the wind blows, the latest controversy comes along with South Carolina's new voter registration statutes, which have been challenged by U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder, who says the move could disenfranchise black voters. The S.C. law would require voters to show at least one kind of proper identification, something that Palmetto voters did for years. But opponents say requiring such a measure would punish people who don't have ready access to such documents.

Why the Y?

I have two sons, both participate in all recreation department sports activities and have for the past eight years; I plan to continue to support the recreation department and would love the opportunity to support a local YMCA. A community YMCA would offer my entire family a facility to be together in one location with various physical activities for each of us. A community YMCA would also offer activities year round as well as provide an arena for competition sports, which would in turn generate income for our community.

'Y' signs

In response to "YMCA Not a Cure-All," printed Monday, September 13, I feel that it is necessary to clarify how the "Yes to the Y" signs came to be. Camden for the Y is a group of local citizens who independently came together to rally support for establishing a YMCA. [Editor's note: Mrs. Long identified herself to the C-I as a member of Camden for the Y.] Like any other political movement, we discussed ways in which our information could be shared and to raise awareness about the important decision voters face in the November election regarding recreation in ...

‘No’ to using hospitality taxes for ‘Y’

Like Mr. James, I have been reading about and discussing the issue of the "Y" over the last year. I have come to the conclusion that this is not about the "Y" as much as it is about how that building will be funded. Sadly, the way the city proposes to fund this, using "H taxes," forces me to come down on the side of "No to the Y."
