Letter: Be careful on social media

I read Simone T. Owens column on "Social media is to blame?" today with interest and I have to agree with many of her comments. Her comment "to allow people to connect instantaneously and see and read what close acquaintances and friends were doing anywhere in the world" is quite true. It allows anyone reading Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and others to read what that person has posted unless they have made every effort for their posts to be private. Even then "private" has a lot of holes in it.

Reader finds ‘Benghazi’ cartoon distasteful

I am not sure who chooses the artwork of the editorial page, but I have to question the taste and integrity of the piece published on Monday, December 1, 2014, where the elephant is beating the "dead" donkey labeled "Benghazi."

Reader responds to Morgan’s response

It would ill-behoove me to verbally joust with the Kershaw Count school superintendent over matters of academia. I merely want to reflect on his response to my recent letter; then I am done.

Letter: Treat them like one of ‘us’

It has been said practically every major issue that passes through our GOP-elected officials' state house -- from education to healthcare to the selection of judges -- has racial undertones. And our GOP-elected officials may have passed the crossroad beyond which to get these evil spirits that loom over our state house in order.

Reader: focus on dog owners, not breeds

Regarding your editorial in the Nov. 14 C-I regarding "Pit Bulls," I was disappointed that you chose to use the two recent incidents in Kershaw County as an opportunity to condemn a particular breed of dog, instead of focusing attention on the actual problem, which is the lack of responsible pet ownership. This would have been an appropriate time to support the passage and vigorous enforcement of laws that focus, not on breed, but on people's responsibility for their dogs' behavior. These include measures that hold owners of all dogs accountable for properly housing, supervising and controlling their dogs ...

Letter: ‘If it ain’t broke’ may not serve us well

I read Mr. Charlie Humphries' letter in Friday's Chronicle-Independent with interest. In the letter, Mr. Humphries implies that because the school district is producing strong results, and it is, making investment in the future isn't really necessary right now. As he puts it, the "If it ain't broke" philosophy.

Letter: ‘If it ain’t broke…’

On Monday, the Chronicle-Independent reported the Kershaw County School District earned an "Excellent" rating on our state report card issued by the S.C. Department of Education. Our KCSD superintendent, Dr. Frank Morgan said, "Our schools are producing outstanding results and I am extremely grateful for the hard work of our students, families, teachers and administrators." I would include Dr. Morgan and the school board and say how proud I am of their accomplishments. Kudos to all of them.

Sheriff responds to firearms discharge ordinance decision

The committee to study whether or not Kershaw County should enact some type of firearms discharge ordinance finally came back with its finding. As I fully expected, there will be no ordinance of any kind to deal with this growing problem. William Tetterton, a criminal defense attorney, former prosecutor and friend of mine chaired this committee. Mr. Tetterton was against any kind of firearms discharge ordinance from the beginning, so it seems a little disingenuous that a man who was strongly opposed to any firearms discharge ordinance would chair a panel deciding on whether or not one should be enacted.

Reader: KCSD ‘missing the boat’

In regard to your article in Friday's (Nov. 7) paper about the defeat of the KCSD referendum. It would seem that the school district is missing the boat. Mrs. Few and CANT have obviously scoped this whole thing out and feel they can operate and expand the school district to every ones satisfaction within the current budget. The school district should take advantage of this knowledge and perhaps have a public meeting where they describe their program.

Reader objects to editorial on FAC

I object to your editorial of October 29, 2014, in which you endorsed the actions of censorship committed by the Fine Arts Center of Kershaw County in their current show. Institutions which ask an artist, musician or thespian to place in a show or to perform a work in a show must trust the integrity of the artist or curator to show the truth of his/her insight. If there are limits to what can be shown, those limits should be published as policy to the participants before they commit to the presentation. No single board member should ever censor ...

Holder's retirement

Recently, U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder announced his retirement. White House Spokesman Josh Earnest acknowledged that Holder's tenure had become increasingly difficult, saying (there were) a large number of issues … many of them very complicated, some of them, maybe controversial.

Reader: SCHSL decision sends wrong message

Regarding the S.C. High School League decision concerning the so called "brawl" after the Camden-Dreher football game, the league has the legal authority to assess such penalties since the schools are, by their own action, voluntary members. And I understand the league's objective of trying to emphasize that such conduct is not acceptable and should be dealt with appropriately.

L-EHS student concerned about animal shelter

I am writing this letter about the concerns of the Walter M. Crowe Animal Shelter. Our animal shelter has its pros and cons. The benefits of an animal shelter is it provides protection for those individuals that cannot afford the proper care for their animal. Think about it: what would our city look like if we did not have an animal shelter? There would be dogs and cats running around freely. Every day I ride down Hwy. 1, I see a helpless dog on the side of the rode with its ribs sticking out from lack of nutrients.

Camden residents support Graham for city council

I want to voice my support for Jeffrey Graham in his pursuit of a seat upon Camden City Council. I think Jeffrey is a unique candidate with a perspective we need. He is a family man with young children, and because of this I think he can represent the needs of many other young families in the Camden area. While all of the current council members have important and impressive qualities, the direct representation of our younger generations is imperative, and with Walter Long leaving, we do not have such a voice on the council if not for Jeffrey Graham.
