I don't like lies

Personally I don't like lying! I made remarks to my brother (now deceased) about Obama lying during the last presidential campaign! His answer was politicians have been lying since the very beginning of politics! This may be true! My mom told me many years ago, (be sure your sins will find you out). I don't like lies or lying and would not vote for a Democrat often as I know now!

Baron of the Piney Woods a facinating Camden native

It all began with a letter penned in 1953. By then the writer was 70 years old and he was answering an inquiry from Judge Allison P. DuBose of Camden. The letter from Inman F. Eldredge (1883-1963) was in the Camden Archives and Museum's vertical file on the Hobkirk Inn. I was working on the Camden Gardens exhibit and the Hobkirk Inn was one of the gardens in the exhibit -- so I "found" Inman on the way to looking for other things. His father and mother owned and operated the Hobkirk Inn during the heyday of the "Winter Colony ...

Romney’s ‘welfare queen’

Whose side is he on? Mitt Romney's assault against President Barack Obama's welfare reform policy sounds good, except that it gets in the way of putting welfare recipients to work.

Noted and passed - Dec. 15, 2014

• A tip of the C-I hat to Kershaw County Deputy Fred Tiah, a school resource officer at Stover Middle School in Elgin. Tiah, as we reported Friday, is from Liberia, one of the hardest-hit countries in this year's Ebola crisis. Recognizing he has been welcomed to and is finding success in America, Tiah says he wants to help children in his native country who have been orphaned by the deadly disease. He's put his idea into action, raising money to help pay for the children's education and medical supplies. Tiah also wants to be a role model ...

The loss of parents and their wisdom

There are few who cannot say truthfully that they miss their parents after death has laid claim to those loved ones. The parents who taught us, scolded us and, at times, annoyed us are never forgotten, never put away on a shelf to be remembered no more.

Letter: Reader appreciates Tucker follow-up story

I applaud the Chronicle-Independent for front page coverage of the dropping of charges against Mr. Sammie Tucker. All too often, especially in larger media markets, good news is relegated to the back pages, while sensational news makes the front page. I believe our community newspaper makes a concerted effort to report the news as it happens and, more importantly, reports good news.
