Letter to Mitt

WASHINGTON -- Dear Mitt: Consider me a neighbor leaning over the picket fence. You have a picket fence, don't you? An ivy-covered wall? Fine, I'll get a ladder.

'Heartbeat' of journalism

Localism is trending today in the realms of food and finance. The institution of the local community newspaper is also popular, but it wasn't blogged into being - it was born long before videos started going viral. Major-metropolitan newspapers may be a slowly dying breed, but community newspapers prove that American journalism is alive, well and living in the rural areas, small towns and suburbs of our land.

Correction/clarification

In the March 2 edition of the Chronicle-Independent, Harold V. Pickrel III was identified as the developer of Bridlewood Farms on Springdale Drive. It should be clarified that Pickrel is the managing partner of BWF LLC, which is developing the property. It should further be clarified that a figure of "$1 million each" for the original number of 16 lots was based on 2008 information where the lots would sell for between $200,000 to $300,000 and the end value of each property, including homes, could come to $1 million.

Race not a factor in sports facility debate

I have been neutral in the YMCA debate and I'm trying to stay that way. There are merits on both sides (we think), but when a member of Camden City Council pulls the race card, I will not be quiet. This planned or unplanned sports complex has nothing to do with race. It is insulting that a member of city council could even bring race into the debate.

Letter: Confederate descendant endorses flag removal

It appears the Confederate battle flag will soon be removed from the South Carolina Capitol grounds and placed in a museum where it belongs. What many believe to be a symbol of Southern heritage has now become a symbol of division. Only the flag of one sovereign nation should fly over the Capitol grounds. I endorse its removal in honor and wishes of my great-grandfather, a former Confederate soldier who wrote in his diary from Shanghai, Chine, on September 17, 1886:
