A tea party with the finest china

In a world where material gain and financial success are held so high, genuine relationships are fast succumbing to the screams for attention from the petty distractions of our day. We live in a world that is too busy updating Facebook and Twitter statuses and texting or e-mailing to notice and appreciate what is right in front of our faces. We are so caught up with trying to connect to the world, we can't connect to those around us; we can't even enjoy the pleasant company of who we are with because we are too distracted by the ...

Towell would bring fresh ideas to office

Frequently when one writes the paper there is a level of anger or anxiety. If it is not bubbling up it is not too far beneath the surface. In this case I am happy to say there is neither. This letter concerns the position of Probate Judge and Ned Towell, and no, I am not going to speak ill of Harriett Pierce. I am certain that she has carried out her responsibilities to the best of her ability.

School board needs leaders like Wood

It is a true blessing in our lifetime to stand up for a "cause" or to support people who will breathe life into that "cause" and see it through. I was fortunate to meet so many great citizens in Elgin while going door-to-door campaigning for a seat on the Kershaw County School Board. It was truly an enlightening experience. I believe I must have met over 400 people during this brief journey, all of whom shared their thoughts and opinions with me. Everyone seemed to share the same strong conviction of support for our children's education. I was moved ...

Keep progress moving by voting

This upcoming midterm election has been the focus of all of the political pundits. And there is a rising concern about voter turnout among African Americans.

Tucker is 'agent of his own undoing'

Based upon the information he has provided for public consumption, Sammie Tucker Jr. is neither qualified nor suited to be sheriff of Kershaw County. Mr. Tucker does not pay his bills. Mr. Tucker does not pay his taxes, and Mr. Tucker has not filed his required campaign material with the S.C. Ethics Commission. He appears to have allowed his automobile insurance to lapse. Yet Mr. Tucker wants to be elected sheriff.

No justification for sales tax increase

The proposed 1 cent sales tax increase for Kershaw County, to be voted on November 2, is both inappropriate and ill-timed. With unemployment at 11.1 percent and economic conditions adversely affecting all citizens, especially the poor and middle class, it is unconscionable that County Council would allow this process to even get off the ground, The Capital Projects Commission did what they were asked to do; but they should never have been asked in the first place. If either of the projects proposed to be funded by this tax increase had been deemed "essential", then it should have been ...

Vote yes for progress

There is no question we all pay our share of taxes. Since taxes are necessary and one of two things that are certain (death being the other), it is refreshing to finally have local leaders working together in an effort to better our communities. What I am referring to is the Capital Sales Tax Project or "Penny For Progress Kershaw County."

Paper waste comes from all directions

"Think Green," "Reusable bags," "Recycle Paper" and many other phrases urge us to conserve paper. Obviously, two large groups have not understood the message. On each mail delivery day we receive between five and 13 pieces of waste mail. All are dropped, unopened, into the trash.

Wise on the mark

I am writing regarding Rev. Dr. P. W. Wise's letter, "Diversity, tolerance as American as apple pie," featured in the Chronicle-Independent Oct. 18. He is the pastor of Mt. Moriah Baptist Church, located in downtown Camden.

Alaska politics

One of the things that keeps many people interested in politics is the fact that big decisions can turn on little details. Such is the case with control of the United States Senate in the upcoming election; Republicans want to gain six seats so they'll have a majority in both the Senate and House, while Democrats, even though they understand they probably will lose some seats, want desperately to prevent a GOP majority. The entire deal -- which party, in effect, controls the government in Washington -- could come down to Alaska, the least densely populated state in the nation. With ...

Today’s workforce and God

Labor Day … is a special time of year for this senior citizen. In my working years, the corporations of America let their faces shine on the working class. In that era, I was blessed to be taught to see not only utility in labor, but beauty and dignity.

How to grow grass under a tree

I have many colleagues who are of the turf persuasion and we have come to an understanding to agree to disagree. I think grass is a weed, they think a tree is a weed -- in nature the two aren't meant to meet. This is why only grass grows on the Great Plains and only trees grow in the forest. But since we aren't on the Plains or in the forest, we try and get plants to co-exist in arranged landscape designs we like to see.

Gary signs pro contract to play in Luxembourg

When he left Camden High School following his graduation in 2009 to continue his academic and basketball pursuits, Evrik Gary needed only to hop on I-20 East and head for Florence and Francis Marion University. Among the reasons he chose to attend FMU was the school's proximity to his home and family in Camden.
