For a good laugh

Thank you City of Camden for putting up a Christmas tree in front of the city hall, and I encourage everyone to go by and look at it. It's a one of a kind tree and it has to be the ugliest Christmas tree in South Carolina. No, I take that back. How about the ugliest Christmas tree in the good, old USA, or maybe in the world, for that matter. It doesn't matter if you see it in the daylight or at night when the lights are burning. It's the ugliest tree both ways. So if ...

A wish for peace

As we celebrate Christendom's holiest day on Sunday, let us pause to wish a peaceful season to all in Kershaw County -- those who share Christianity, those who subscribe to other faiths and those who have no faith at all. And to the family of believers, we print once again the words from the second chapter of Luke that have come to be the basis of faith for so many millions of people across the United States and the world:

‘All-American’ Muslim bashers

A conservative Christian group has launched a boycott against "All-American Muslim." The TLC reality TV show about Muslim families in America fails to live down to the group's narrow-minded stereotypes. Their gripe, in my view, makes about as much sense as boycotting "The Cosby Show" because it doesn't mention black street gangs.

To give or not to give

During the holiday season, especially through these tough economic times, people who are a little or a lot more fortunate than others struggle with the dilemma of whether to give or not to give to those in need of help. We have the guy outside your friendly neighborhood Wal-Mart, ringing a handbell, with a basket so far from it, urging you to give to the needy. Then there's Families Helping Families, a very admirable charity that's got the phone lines and the newscast promoting their organization, and let us not forget the Toys for Tots program. What able-bodied ...

Having been involved in the equine activities of Camden since 1952, I write this letter to express my gratitude and thanks to the Camden Chronicle-Independent for its outstanding coverage and support of these activities.

Medicare

With the U.S. budget deficit still spiraling amid partisan stagnation and deadlock in Washington, two lawmakers, one a Republican and the other a Democrat, have finally come together to advance a proposal that would revamp the runaway costs of Medicare. Though solons in the nation's capital have refused thus far to address entitlement spending -- there's no way to bring the budget under control without changes to both Medicare and Social Security -- perhaps this is a ray of hope that there are some people in Washington who are willing to work together to salvage the fiscal integrity of ...
