How about a tax/fee that benefits everyone?

I would like to thank Mr. Floyd Hinson for his well-written article "Citizens paying for services they don't receive" published in the Chronicle-Independent Jan. 20. He is "right on" about our sewer tax and other taxes/fees such as the special purpose tax. People need to know just what these taxes/fees or whatever you call them are.

These things make a difference in how and ...

Control of frivolous lawsuits needed

With regard to Gov. Nikki Haley's proposed legislation to stop frivolous lawsuits, I would like to tell you my story. After years of trying to get my neighbor to stop using my property for the storage of his junk car business, I finally put up a fence. Prior to my doing so, I hired a surveyor to locate the property line. My neighbor disputed the property line as surveyed and has filed suit against me for erecting a fence that, according to him, has caused him to lose money from his business operations. I in turn have had to ...

Rhame Arena

We're glad to see that the city of Camden is exploring alternatives for aging Rhame Arena. The building is becoming more dilapidated with each passing year, and something needs to be done, whether it's razing it or restoring it. Of course, money is a factor, just as it is in all government decisions these days. We will say that city officials have overworked the bureaucratic jargon in their appraisal of the situation, saying an "adaptive reuse" could be a possible alternative. We are assuming "adaptive reuse" means repairing the building and making it feasible for some type of ...
