Phillips: ‘It’s all about me’

Once again, I turn to the headlines of the day in my search for subject matter for this weekly column. By the way, hello again and welcome to my first column to appear in the Chronicle-Independent on a Wednesday. The "retirement" of Glenn Tucker has caused an adjustment in scheduling for our editorial columns, so mine has been moved from Fridays to Wednesdays. That's not a problem for me, but I will miss reading Glenn's work each week, as I'm sure you will, too.

Letter: Hunt Cup resident unhappy about Beechwood plans

I am a resident of Camden. I have lived here three times: first to work for DuPont in 1966; in the '80s as assistant plant manager at DuPont; and eight years ago to retire. I retired from Geneva, Switzerland as president of DuPont Europe, Middle East and Africa. I have lived in a variety of communities in the U.S. and Europe.

Letter: ‘Utter disgust’ with soldier’s treatment

Utter disgust is an understatement with regard to the "political correctness" and liberal direction of the civilian "leadership" being exercised within the United States of America. This disgust extends from the national level down to the local level in both the public sector and the private sector, but most particularly in the public (governmental) sector. There seemingly is a growing disregard for the values our country was founded upon and defended by the sacrifices of those who have served to protect the values, peace and freedoms we enjoy. This disregard and "political correctness" has steadily grown during the past 20 ...

Letter: Reader says he will miss Tucker

Today, I read with great regret that I will not get to read Glenn Tucker's column every Friday. It is serious, funny and informative. Most of the time it hit the bullseye. Also, I feel like I know Waylon Fortenberry and looked forward to his comments on situations. Glenn is still young in writer years, so maybe he will come back sooner rather than later.
