SNAP's direction

When the modern food stamp program began as a pilot project in 1961 -- it was authorized as a permanent program three years later -- those in charge probably never envisioned a day when people might walk into fast-food restaurants, order up a huge container of French fries and then pull out their food stamps to pay. But that's what's happening in some places today, and restaurant owners are pushing for a bigger share of the pie.

Citizens won't be silenced by actions, words of city leaders

This edition of the Chronicle-Independent may well contain a front page story by reporter Martin Cahn detailing the events at the Camden City Council meeting of Sept. 13. As reporters are properly tasked to present facts free of emotion or judgment, the actual tone of that council meeting may not be accurately reflected in Mr. Cahn's article. I submit this letter, therefore, for those citizens not able to attend that council meeting, and who must rely on Mr. Cahn's version of fact.

'Moderate Muslims'? Right here

If there are "moderate" Muslims, I still hear critics ask since the Sept. 11 attacks, why don't they condemn Islamic terrorism? In fact, most Muslims do condemn such barbaric acts but their critics aren't always listening.

Gullible and guilty

Those of us who jump for joy when we hear that Governor Haley is deeply concerned about education and is planning to dedicate $160 million in new spending for education might consider, as we bow heads in hope and tenuous gratitude, that such concern on her part is coming awfully late but just in time for her possible re-election. Better late than never? Perhaps! But better earlier, for sure.
