South Carolina GOP primary

South Carolina Republicans have long taken pride in the fact that the state's first-in-the-South primary has attracted a great deal of national political attention, and indeed, Palmetto State GOP voters have had an uncanny knack for picking the eventual party candidate. So it gives the state a great deal of clout among Republican candidates who want to gain momentum as they head into the election season's final year. As we've noted before, we aren't keen on the fact that candidates for the White House announce soon after a president has been chosen, setting up what is ...

The Fan

Dark clouds have been lifted, giving way to blue (and white and orange and black and garnet) skies -- football season is back. For this, fans of every age and team color are grateful. And with immense pride and bliss, they don the jersey of their beloved team; their team that will go all the way this season. At least that's what we, the fans, want to believe; it's what we hold on to year after year as if "it" was the winning lottery ticket; a victorious season in our clutches. Fans want to believe this is the moment ...

'Courageous'

I would like to take this opportunity to say a big "thank you" to the Trivetts, owners of the Little Theatre in Camden. They very generously reduced the price of tickets for the movie "Courageous" and also donated tickets to all law enforcement officers in Kershaw County. "Courageous" was not just another Hollywood movie. A church in Georgia puts it on and the actors are actually members of the congregation and staff. Now that in itself might keep some people from going. A "Christian" movie with regular people doing the acting. Sounds to some like a low B grade movie ...

Cain is 'the real deal'

Mr. Cain was my presidential pick well before the Florida straw vote. He strikes me as genuine, intelligent, honest, and he knows his business stuff. He will give us the hope and change we need in this country. He will repeal punishing regulations and open up markets for energy independence and trade. He will lead in making the business climate friendly and inclusive so they will know what their long-range goals are and they will hire again. He will be a uniter, not a divider. His leadership will encourage Congress to work together to establish his 9-9-9 Tax Plan transitioning ...

Photo cutline – Transportation provided by the Santee Wateree Regional Transportation Authority is one thing which may be reduced because of cuts in federal funds for social services. Pearl W.

December 15, 2014 | | Ariail


Noted and passed - Dec. 15, 2014

• 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.

From an organizational standpoint, it will provide access to best practices and strategies to improve the quality of care provided, enhance ...

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.
