'Tell Johnnie I'm okay'

Having the opportunity each month to write on an array of topics continues to deliver to me absolute satisfaction. Chosen subject matter usually encompasses certain resolute thoughts that have incited my interest or stirred my conscience in some manner. This month has proven to be no different except for, perhaps, the degree in which my awareness and inference of a fastidious topic has been kindled; the painstaking topic of war. Last week, we took in the Stephen Spielberg movie, "War Horse." The story has a universal message; one that portrays to its viewers the horror of war in which men ...

Help us move forward

I believe that a person who is elected to a position of leadership should never enter the post without a solid position about the future that he/she believes is best for the people who have elected him/her. I have spent my entire life, except for my college years, in Camden, and I am proud to say that my son, daughter-in-law and grandson live here also. As I have grown older, I have watched my beloved hometown shrink and be filled with parks that became run-down, infrastructure that became outdated, streets that were filled with potholes, and a city ...

A new day at McDonald’s

Camden children had something to celebrate Dec. 16 as they were released from school for winter break. The McDonald's at 215 DeKalb St. treated youngsters to a brand-new Play Place, face-painting, a ceiling of balloons and Santa hats for every attendee to spread Christmas cheer. Joining to help celebrate was Ronald McDonald, 97.5 WCOS and the Camden Fire and Police departments. All guests at the event were entered in a raffle. Three lucky winners went home with iPods, and an unsuspecting customer won a brand new 32-inch flat screen television. The store was filled with families from 2 ...

Reader: focus on dog owners, not breeds

Regarding your editorial in the Nov. 14 C-I regarding "Pit Bulls," I was disappointed that you chose to use the two recent incidents in Kershaw County as an opportunity to condemn a particular breed of dog, instead of focusing attention on the actual problem, which is the lack of responsible pet ownership. This would have been an appropriate time to support the passage and vigorous enforcement of laws that focus, not on breed, but on people's responsibility for their dogs' behavior. These include measures that hold owners of all dogs accountable for properly housing, supervising and controlling their dogs ...

Letter: ‘If it ain’t broke’ may not serve us well

I read Mr. Charlie Humphries' letter in Friday's Chronicle-Independent with interest. In the letter, Mr. Humphries implies that because the school district is producing strong results, and it is, making investment in the future isn't really necessary right now. As he puts it, the "If it ain't broke" philosophy.
