A taxing situation

If voters approve the Kershaw County School District's $130 million list of projects for Phase 2 of its facilities equalization project (FEP), property taxes will go up in Kershaw County. The question is by how much, especially since the district is also asking voters to approve a 1-cent sales tax that would partially offset any property tax millage increases. Both referenda will be on the ballot on Nov. 4 during the general election.

A fine man

The death of James S. Brady earlier this week marked the end of a decades-long saga of courage and dedication; the former presidential press secretary for Ronald Reagan lived more than 33 years after taking a bullet that was intended for the president. Brady was brutally wounded in Washington when a deranged John W. Hinckley Jr. fired a pistol, hoping his false bravado would impress the movie actress Jodie Foster. Reagan came perilously close to dying, but fully recovered; unfortunately, Brady was dogged by pain and disability for the rest of his life.

Family grateful to future neighbors

My brother and sister-in-law, Bart and Kathleen, have been eagerly anticipating their move to Camden since purchasing a beautiful home in April. This decision to relocate did not come easy, as their roots are deeply established in Ohio, where both have been vital residents in their community, making significant contributions in their professions and with their service and philanthropic work. Children and grandchildren are also there. But Camden was calling.

Reader: proposed gun ordinance would destroy Second Amendment

I am writing in reference to Sheriff Jim Mathews' letter and the follow up letter from Joe Upchurch published in the Chronicle-Independent concerning a proposed county gun control ordinance. I thought this proposal had been killed, but now I understand that it has gone to a committee for possible revision.
