The recreation center/YMCA vote

I wrote my first letter on this subject in April 2011, my second in July 2011 and subsequently addressed the city council on the subject. I see little has changed except that the council has resolved to continue the project while refusing to resolve legitimate concerns about the legal, economic and potential negative community impact of the proposal. For many of us who have lived in this community for many years and tried to leave it better than we found it, this is a sad reflection on what has been a wonderful and cooperative history.

Y is epitome of ‘community’

We all aspire to live in a viable and strong community. Camden has history, beautiful churches, restaurants, public parks, nice wide streets and tennis courts. And to think we have the opportunity to move forward with a recreation center to be managed by the YMCA! Having grown up in a city with a Y to which my family belonged, I know that a Y can be a place to enhance the quality of life for citizens of all ages.

Noted and passed - Oct. 8, 2012

• We start with a tip of the Chronicle-Independent hat to Jim and Pat Watts for their giving ways in helping the Fine Arts Center (FAC) of Kershaw County construct and open a new performing arts wing at the center. The new 3,876-square foot-wing, dedicated in their name at the FAC's recent annual meeting, will allow the center to expand its theater arts education and performance programs. It's a great addition to the FAC campus for which we say, "Bravo!"

Newspapers continue to deliver

As a teenager in Pennsylvania, I delivered The Morning Call and The Evening Chronicle to customers in a suburb of Allentown. On rainy days, I'd try to make sure the paper stayed dry inside the screen door. Now, I get The State and the New York Times delivered to my driveway in plastic bags, though the Times delivery is erratic. I can, of course, also read the Times on my iPhone, iPad and desktop computer.
