Letter: Reader grateful for Arrants columns

I wish to complement your columnist, Josh Arrants, for the wonderful articles he has written for the Chronicle. I have read only three of his articles, but I have truly enjoyed each one. In the last one, he said he was leaving Kershaw County and I could only think of the loss to your paper.

Letter: Reader says signs need to be seen

I read the front page article on "wayfinding signage" for Camden in the Monday edition. I think this is a great idea, but I would suggest that the Camden City Council take a new look at street signs on Broad and DeKalb streets identifying street names.

Letter: Reader worries about 4-way stop

I can half-way understand the 4-way stop at the corner of York and Mill streets since there is a blind, uphill snake curve on the east end of York Street which is a 30 degree RW from Mill Street to Hwy. 34. The west end of York Street, from Mill Street to Broad Street is a 90 degree RW.

Letter: Reader says C-I balanced, The State not

I subscribe to this newspaper and the rag they call a newspaper out of Columbia. In an unsolicited testimony, I would like to make a brief comparison of the two.

Letter: Reader moved by cadet’s homegoing

My personal thanks to you and your staff for all the effort put into the coverage of Lomar Clark's death. He was among the few students over the years I have taught or worked with in JROTC I will remember for the days to come. He was the epitome of a young man that men of all ages could emulate.

Reader: Diversification not needed at Clemson

I have been a member of IPTAY (Clemson University's athletic fundraising organization) for the last 26 years. Needless to say, I support and generally agree with the manner in which Clemson is operated. Recently, however, I am in disagreement with its president's call for more diversification. Generally, when someone makes such a call, they simply want more hyphenated Americans.

Letter: Reader still seeking MLK’s dream

Each third Monday in January, America celebrates Martin Luther King Jr.'s birthday. His earthly journey was an era when federal and state law was devastating to the lives of African-Americans.

Letter: Graham’s ‘pain capable’ bill unconstitutional

U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina has promised to introduce his "Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act" in the Senate in the next few weeks. This is an unconstitutional attack on women's rights and healthcare. In 1973, the Supreme Court, in a 7-2 decision, allowed women to terminate a pregnancy based on the 14th Amendment to the Constitution. That amendment guarantees the right to privacy. It is the law of the land.

Letter: Burns endorses Emmons for Elgin mayor

Melissa Brazell (Emmons) has a love for her community and a passion for public service. Those shining qualities were apparent when I encountered her when I was campaigning for chairman of Kershaw County.

The voters of Kershaw County have voted to defeat the Bond Referendum to support our school system.

Reader wants Camden wi-fi expanded

Now that Christmas has come and gone I am sure there are a number of new iPad's, laptop computers and more wireless adapted electronics in use. Camden is one of the few cities in this state that has made the effort to establish a free wi-fi network in the community. It would be an asset to the community to see the coverage area expanded more than it is now.

Reader applauds Drakeford’s support of Marketplace Fairness Act

I wish to applaud Councilwoman Alfred Mae Drakeford for her letter "Urges support for Marketplace Fairness Act." I agree wholeheartedly with everything she said. Ever since the state started requesting the total amount of out-of-state purchases be added to the state tax return, I have compiled and included this on my return. I keep a list of the out-of-state businesses and amount I spent during the year so the total will be given to the CPA who prepares my taxes.

Reader upset with ‘State House employees’

Here in South Carolina, the era of economy is not working for most of the working class. No one should be satisfied with the pace of our state's progress.

Letters: Young reader recounts ‘best toy’

It would be very difficult to name all of my favorite toys of my past, but the ones that really stick out upon the rest are the ones that didn't come from Walmart, Target or any other store.

I am writing to "educate" some folks with the Kershaw County school board regarding the article that came out in the Chronicle-Independent newspaper on Feb. 20, 2015.

Letter: Reader says KCSD referenda not chamber issue

Last November, we voted down the referendum that would empower the KCSD to tear down usable and functioning schools and construct replacement along with a new or rehabilitated Camden High football stadium. All it was going to cost was $130 million plus interest. But, fear not, they also asked us to approve a "penny" sales tax to pay for it.

Letter: Reader responds to Clemson diversification letter

In his articulate letter on diversification not being needed at Clemson University (Jan. 21, 2015), Charlie Humphries indicated he is the type of gentleman who would concede to my will to respectfully disagree with him.
