'Thank you' to Mr. Jones

I would like to voice my endorsement of Kershaw County Councilman Jimmy Jones. I've known Mr. Jones a long time on a professional level and I cannot tell you strongly enough how impressed my family and I have been with him as a servant of the county. He has always been available to me or a member of my family and if he could not pick up the phone at the very moment I called, he would promptly return the call and he always would find a solution to our dilemma.

• A recent survey found that men's workplace desks are generally dirtier than women's -- that's in terms of bacteria -- and that shouldn't come as a surprise to many people. However, scientists caution that we are in some instances becoming too wary of germs, that they're a necessary part of life and in many cases are beneficial. It brings us back to that old debate about hand sanitizers and whether or not we're actually doing long-term harm by insisting that everything be germ-free. As for us, we recall the days when kids rolled around in the ...

Jimmy Jones helps solve problems

It is very seldom that we have a person holding public office of whom we are truly proud. We have such a person in Jimmy Jones, Kershaw County councilman.

In support of Jimmy Jones

Sometimes things cross your mind that you feel just need to be said to bring encouragement to those that have been a part of your life. I worked for the city of Camden and Kershaw County for many years in the Special Services Department under the direction of Jimmy Jones. Throughout those years we were constantly taught to be servants of the community and put their needs first. This principle has gone on to be a part of my life now and it has paid huge dividends. I am thankful for the input into my personal life of principles that ...

Romney's business

As Mitt Romney's campaign steps up its pace following his securing of enough votes to ensure the Republican presidential nomination, some prominent Democrats express surprise with how quickly Romney's former GOP foes have converted to his cause. Some on the Obama team expected there to be lingering dissension among Republicans over the hard-fought primary. And ironically, the president's major offensive centers around criticizing Romney's tenure as head of Bain Capital, a private equity firm that earned him millions of dollars.

Obama's effect: Are gay 'rites' a black thing now?

Conservatives warned, often with glee, that President Barack Obama's support for same-sex marriage would spark a backlash from African Americans. But less than a month later, guess what? Polls show black voters dramatically swinging the other way, closer to Obama's view.

• 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.
