Robert Mills was the first American born and trained architect. He called himself "Robert Mills, Architect of Public Buildings." Indeed, Mills established a new scale and standard for public buildings in Washington, D. C. when he designed the Treasury Building, the Patent Office, and the General Post Office in the 1830s and early 1840s. In other parts of the country, Mills designed buildings that were sensitive to regional values and local architectural traditions. Always his attention was on permanency and fireproofing for his public buildings.

Camden is, without a doubt, a horse town. Kershaw County is a horse county and the love for horses extends throughout this great area of South Carolina. However, it stops at my door.

Easter is a holiday of two extremes. On one side is a covert celebration of springtime with cute bunnies and pretty dresses and Easter egg hunts and chicks and flowers and lambs. On the other is a lamb being slaughtered on Passover. There is a bloodstained cross on which a Jewish man is dying who proclaimed that he was the Son of God, and that he had to be killed so that God's wrath against my sins could be carried out not against me but against him.

(This letter is a follow-up to the letter, "Review of organized recreation in Camden, Kershaw County," in the Aug. 10 Chronicle-Independent. It is offered to help close the divisions that have been created, emphasize some lessons learned and review some potential solutions as paths forward to regaining unity, unselfish civic pride, participation and a willingness to "put the needs of the total community first." At all levels of human relationships, especially those involving children, the true measure of leadership is to have someone say that "you care more about your students/athletes/teammates/ constituents than you do about yourself.")

I would like to address several concerns that I have as a taxpayer and a concerned citizen. We moved here a few years ago due to the charm, laidback living, and the way everyone took pride in their community. I have been very concerned over all the vacant buildings, one in particular: the old Camden Middle School. It is not only an eyesore, but could be a hot spot for crime and vandalism. This is not the type of first impression of our town that we want to give.

Like voters across the United States, we in Kershaw County are in the midst of being pummeled by almost constant "poll news." It seems that nearly every day there is a new political poll proving that one candidate or the other is the strongest choice for the White House. During the entire Republican primary, various candidates have pointed to polls showing them as most likely to defeat President Obama in November. Mitt Romney and Newt Gingrich are both touting themselves as the only member of the GOP who can unseat Obama in the fall.
