I call him Merle…

Not so long ago I was reading an interview with a classical musician in which the reporter who was questioning the artist asked, "Who is your favorite composer?"

New petition misleading

We were under the impression that the new petition being circulated regarding the Camden Sports Complex was a petition for a referendum. After all, the motto of the petition effort is "Let the People Decide." An analysis of the petition website frames it in a similar way. Indeed, the name chosen for the petition group is the "Camden Recreation Referendum Coalition," and the reason given for creating the organization is to present Camden's City Council with a petition requesting a binding referendum to allow the registered voters of Camden to choose between supporting this project or not supporting it.

Camden strategic planning

Since my election in 2008, I have led our Council in designing an annual strategic plan. A strategic plan is a strong management tool which helps both the Council and the City staff to focus energy toward the same goals. It is a disciplined planning process to develop an annual vision. Before we begin the multi-step process covering vision, mission, objectives, values, strategies, goals and programs, we must review our current status. This planning also provides us with benchmarks for historic reviews. This plan becomes our focus for the future.

‘...leave us to our old tried and true ways’

I am writing in response to a letter in the Chronicle-Independent dated January 11th from Andrew Pope. Surely he checked Camden and its facilities very carefully before making his move. If the Y was so important to him, he must have discovered that Camden has no Y, but has many exercise spots indoors and outdoors. This has been the Camden way of life for a long time … a way that many of us truly enjoy. There is so much in Camden to be proud of -- do not try to change it. If Camden does not have what you want for ...

Deer slayer (a misnomer)

To characterize me as a deer slayer, a hunter, or an outdoorswoman would be incongruous, to say the least. I do know how to handle a gun, having had a brother who assumed I might be of interest as a playmate if I knew how to shoot. Therefore, he dared me to shoot a double barrel shotgun and blow out the pantry window. Naturally, a challenge such as this required action. I shot out the window, was kicked a summersault, and expected the deserved whipping. (No one called or thought of DSS back then.) Mother, a widow, was too thankful ...

Noted and passed - Sept. 29, 2014

• Congratulations to everyone who participated in the Fine Arts Center's (FAC) "Dancing With the Stars" event. We think we can place it firmly in the "fun(d)raising" category, in that it not only raises money for the FAC, but raises the fun quotient with folks getting to see some of Kershaw County's notable residents doing their best to shimmy and shake or tango across the stage. Extra congratulations to Tyke Redfearn and Ginny Marshall for winning the technical award for best dance routine, and to Eric Boland and Amanda Smith for earning the People's Choice Award ...

Reader: Zemp answer raises questions

The Kershaw County School Board response in Monday's Chronicle-Independent to Scott Jordan's statement on Zemp Stadium is nothing if not informative. If you haven't been paying attention, the school district has proposed a facilities referendum for the November election which would, among other things, abandon Zemp Stadium while spending millions of additional taxpayer dollars on a new stadium on Ehrenclou Drive.

When I think back on the days of my youth, that time when I had the privilege of traveling on the NASCAR circuit, it would be hard to pick a lesson learned that was more important than another.

Movies still to come in 2014: Part 1

So, 2014 hasn't lived up to the hype. Sure the usual franchise fodder and gratuitous effect-splendors have pulled in big numbers, but on a whole, this year has been a critical and commercial yawn for the film industry.

Keeping the mystery in your marriage

Back when you and your spouse were dating, things were exciting. You couldn't wait to see each other and you got butterflies whenever you'd think of getting together. But over the years, things changed. You still love each other, but that spark isn't as strong now. It'd be nice to have that spark again, but you just don't know what happened.
