GOP division

Democrats and independents who want to see President Obama win another term in office got a boost Tuesday when former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum won Republican primary contests in Minnesota, Colorado and Missouri, signaling that the GOP's efforts to coalesce behind Mitt Romney are not working, at least for the time being. Santorum will not receive any delegates from any of the three states, as all were non-binding straw polls -- so-called "beauty contests" in political parlance -- but his success indicates that the right wing of the Republican Party isn't warming up to Romney, whose conservative credentials they consider ...

Living in a crazy world

• We Americans have become the most sensitive, easily offended, quick-to-demand-an-apology, get-our-feelings-hurt, complainingest nation in the history of the world.

Lessons learned, solutions offered through C/KCRD recreation

(This letter is a follow-up to the letter, "Review of organized recreation in Camden, Kershaw County," in the Aug. 10 Chronicle-Independent. It is offered to help close the divisions that have been created, emphasize some lessons learned and review some potential solutions as paths forward to regaining unity, unselfish civic pride, participation and a willingness to "put the needs of the total community first." At all levels of human relationships, especially those involving children, the true measure of leadership is to have someone say that "you care more about your students/athletes/teammates/ constituents than you do about yourself.")

Priorities

I would like to address several concerns that I have as a taxpayer and a concerned citizen. We moved here a few years ago due to the charm, laidback living, and the way everyone took pride in their community. I have been very concerned over all the vacant buildings, one in particular: the old Camden Middle School. It is not only an eyesore, but could be a hot spot for crime and vandalism. This is not the type of first impression of our town that we want to give.

Political polls

Like voters across the United States, we in Kershaw County are in the midst of being pummeled by almost constant "poll news." It seems that nearly every day there is a new political poll proving that one candidate or the other is the strongest choice for the White House. During the entire Republican primary, various candidates have pointed to polls showing them as most likely to defeat President Obama in November. Mitt Romney and Newt Gingrich are both touting themselves as the only member of the GOP who can unseat Obama in the fall.

Camden residents support Graham for city council

I want to voice my support for Jeffrey Graham in his pursuit of a seat upon Camden City Council. I think Jeffrey is a unique candidate with a perspective we need. He is a family man with young children, and because of this I think he can represent the needs of many other young families in the Camden area. While all of the current council members have important and impressive qualities, the direct representation of our younger generations is imperative, and with Walter Long leaving, we do not have such a voice on the council if not for Jeffrey Graham.

Reader supports Reuwer

I am supporting David Reuwer for probate judge in the coming election. In any election, voters must ask a couple of things: does the candidate know what he or she is doing, and does the candidate possess the proper attitude to best serve the people of Kershaw County. Well, Mr. Reuwer is a practicing lawyer and Elgin municipal judge experienced in probate matters including the new, revised probate code. Mr. Reuwer is a hardworking man dedicated to the protection, conservation, and celebration of the historical legacy of Kershaw County. He has a strong need to help others; it seems to ...

Reader: ‘vote no twice’

I see signs appearing throughout the county imploring you to "Vote Yes Twice" regarding the school referenda. If you favor tearing down perfectly good schools and Camden High's football stadium, construction new ones to replace them, to the tune of $130 million plus interest; and if you want to pay higher taxes on everything you buy, then by all means vote yes.

Ten things nobody told you about being married

You've heard that marriage isn't easy, that there are going to be trials, surprises and changes of plans along the way. People also tell you it's a blast and the best decision they've ever made. But did anyone tell you being married is also awkward? And sweaty? Being married is a lot of things, some of which no one tells you about ahead of time. Here's a head's up of a few things you probably haven't heard before.

'The Best of Me' saves Sparks' worst for last

Imagine that someone pulled a drain plug on a majestic mountain lake. At first, you wouldn't notice anything amiss, save for a low gurgle echoing from deep under the water. But as the water line dropped, exposing the soggy shore, your heart would drop, and by the time the lake vanished away, leaving sludge and long-forgotten trash and desperate fish flopping around gasping for life, you'd realize the tragedy before you.
