Lt. William E. Johnson Jr.

In 2010, Broadus R. Littlejohn, a Spartanburg collector, gave Wofford College a very large collection of books, pamphlets, documents and manuscripts. Among his gift were more than two dozen Civil War letters and a diary Lt. William E. Johnson Jr. of Liberty Hill kept from May 1864 until June 1865 while he was a Union prisoner-of-war.

Noted and passed - July 30, 2012

• We offer a tip of the Chronicle-Independent hat to the Rev. Bruce Hancock and the members of Camden's First Baptist Church, who are celebrating Hancock's 20th anniversary as pastor. It is rare that a minister remains at one church that long, and Hancock has carved out an enviable record at the county's largest church, with a great deal of growth (and spiritual nutrition) taking place.

My quest for 'commonsense' gun laws

Haul out the rail, tar bucket and feathers

The taxpayers of Kershaw County have been given another "sewer" tax bill to pay until the end of time. A "solid waste" fee. This was a "slam dunk" proposal for the citizens of our county just like the sewer fee that is most certainly and can be called an illegal tax. This was introduced by the former council chairman. He left before the 1-cent tax was introduced. The fee for solid waste was not established before a vote was taken. This question was a foregone conclusion before a vote was taken. A question was asked some time ago to the ...

Olympic spirit

The 2012 Olympic games begin today in London, and while there's always a touch of politics involved, the event still is inspirational as an example of international goodwill among all those who participate. The opening ceremonies have become an extravaganza over the years, but the best part is still the entrance into the stadium of the athletes from around the world, all there to compete against each other in the best tradition of sportsmanship.
