‘...leave us to our old tried and true ways’

I am writing in response to a letter in the Chronicle-Independent dated January 11th from Andrew Pope. Surely he checked Camden and its facilities very carefully before making his move. If the Y was so important to him, he must have discovered that Camden has no Y, but has many exercise spots indoors and outdoors. This has been the Camden way of life for a long time … a way that many of us truly enjoy. There is so much in Camden to be proud of -- do not try to change it. If Camden does not have what you want for ...

Deer slayer (a misnomer)

To characterize me as a deer slayer, a hunter, or an outdoorswoman would be incongruous, to say the least. I do know how to handle a gun, having had a brother who assumed I might be of interest as a playmate if I knew how to shoot. Therefore, he dared me to shoot a double barrel shotgun and blow out the pantry window. Naturally, a challenge such as this required action. I shot out the window, was kicked a summersault, and expected the deserved whipping. (No one called or thought of DSS back then.) Mother, a widow, was too thankful ...

Sixteen families in Kershaw County have a warmer home this winter after local volunteers completed a mission project in December.

Referendum remains focus

Thank you for the opportunity to clarify the issue of the wording of the current petition on the proposed Camden Sports Complex. It has been suggested that the language seems to be in conflict with the cause of the Camden Recreation Referendum Coalition (CRRC) to let the voice of the people be heard. The driving force behind the CRRC was, is, and always will be the referendum, and the right for citizens to participate in government. However, in order to get to the point of a referendum, the State Code (and City Council) mandates that the format of the petition ...

Would today’s GOP elect Reagan?

Jon Huntsman has suspended his presidential campaign. No one is surprised. He stood out from the rest of the Republican presidential pack as an intelligent voice of reason, diplomacy and international expertise. In other words, he might have been the right man, but these are the wrong times.
