His so-called ‘post-racial’ presidency

Talk about a "post-racial" America when President Barack Obama was elected has pretty much gone away, for good reason. Even he didn't believe it.

Swimming lessons

This week my daughter enrolled her three year old in swimming lessons at the recreation department swimming pool. Yesterday I got to watch a group of very focused young people teaching the children to swim. The pool and the facility were pristeen. The children were happy and well cared for. Thank you to Lydia Guinn who taught my granddaughter and to Jessica Mullins who is head of this fine program.

Unfair cell phone tax in Elgin

As of my June 23, 2012, and July 23, 2012, phone bill, I find that the city of Elgin, S.C., has begun to include a city license tax on my phone bill of $1.12. (I am not a resident of Elgin.)

Banning guns not the answer to gun violence

As I am sure the flurry of knee-jerk and half thought rants pour in concerning the gun control laws, I draw this letter with hesitation, but certainly with hopes it will not be taken as such.

Camden’s the right place for me

I enjoyed your article in the Chronicle's June 25th edition entitled "Camden Is The Right Place To Be." It was very refreshing to hear someone else preach the attributes of our wonderful community. I could not agree with you more. As did so many of my contemporaries, I left Camden in the early '70s seeking fame and fortune. I could have chosen the path of least resistance and found permanent employment here My desire for adventure was a larger driving force than money. My intentions were always to one day return to the Wateree River Valley. Since returning I ...

Noted and passed - Aug. 6, 2012

• It's a bit absurd that the U.S. government taxes the medals that this country's Olympic athletes win. For those who take the top prize, the gold medal, they are expected to add $675 to their taxable income and fork federal taxes over on that amount. Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida will introduce a plan to abolish that tax, and it will be a miserly lawmaker, indeed, who doesn't support such legislation.

The spirit of the Olympic athlete

It's what's inside -- the verve; the drive; the untainted grit. It's the pilot light that never goes out. It's the fervor propelling an individual to impressive heights. It's the cause and effect. It's what makes a person leap over the same hurdles hundreds, thousands of times before ever getting it right. It's what makes a person perform 25,000 dives a year hoping to get one score that will count forever. It's what makes a person realize that to win it all, you can't be afraid to lose. It's what ...
