The recreation center/YMCA vote

I wrote my first letter on this subject in April 2011, my second in July 2011 and subsequently addressed the city council on the subject. I see little has changed except that the council has resolved to continue the project while refusing to resolve legitimate concerns about the legal, economic and potential negative community impact of the proposal. For many of us who have lived in this community for many years and tried to leave it better than we found it, this is a sad reflection on what has been a wonderful and cooperative history.

Y is epitome of ‘community’

We all aspire to live in a viable and strong community. Camden has history, beautiful churches, restaurants, public parks, nice wide streets and tennis courts. And to think we have the opportunity to move forward with a recreation center to be managed by the YMCA! Having grown up in a city with a Y to which my family belonged, I know that a Y can be a place to enhance the quality of life for citizens of all ages.

‘We The People’

We the People have the power to make changes in Congress. In fact, In November, members of Congress that are seeking reelection and have not been serving our country and its people (as they should have been) can be eliminated by voting for another that is best suited to serve the people (even a write-in candidate.) "The people are responsible for the character of their Congress. If that body be ignorant, reckless, and corrupt, it is because the people tolerate ignorance, recklessness, and corruption. If it be intelligent, brave and pure, it is because the people demand those high qualities ...

We need a leader

In reading several editorials in various media lately, yours seems to be on the same theme that the god Obama needs to be given four more years to finishing destroying this country. He hasn't been able to do what he needs to do so let's give him some more time. Time to lecture us on how we should not speak ill of anyone unless they do not have liberal ideas. Time to keep saying everything is not my fault and you need to blame someone else (just who is he going to blame if reelected). Time to lecture ...

‘Just say no’

For some time now, I have been attending Camden City Council meetings, reading letters to the C-I editor and participating in citizen meetings supporting a sports facility referendum.

Loving ‘Mrs. Montgomery’

I love Mrs. Montgomery. I am sure many of my former classmates enjoyed Harvey Teal's October 1 (Kershaw County Historical Society column), "A visit with 'Coota' Montgomery." I still find it very difficult to address her as Coota. She will always be Mrs. Montgomery to me.

Obama is our only hope...

President Obama is our only hope of statesmanship, leadership and large vision for this nation at this critical time in our history. Obama has the courage of Lincoln. A self-governing, free society cannot function if a large segment of its population ceases to believe that government represents them, is working for them, is them.

Romney hasn't lost election

It seems your paper has taken the same position as the national media in promoting President Obama and denigrating Mitt Romney. Your contention that "Romney has lost the election" (Sept. 24.) based on his "47 percent" statement seems to echo the liberal national press. Let's drop the political rhetoric, step back for a moment and logically and objectively analyze what Romney meant (which is exactly the courtesy you would have given President Obama). He never implied that he does not care about all of America; he was simply stating a fact that a coalition of people would vote for ...

‘Y’ will benefit community

On November 6th I will vote "Yes" for the City to build a sports complex. The architectural sketches promise a beautiful building which will make Camden more attractive. If we want this town to be competitive with others and appealing to families and industries, then it is time to embrace this opportunity.

Utility fees, taxes will pay for ‘Y’

When the city council refused to honor and accept the petition concerning the erection on the proposed Y, I decided to attend the council meetings.

City earned it’s ‘A’ rating

Recently, you received a letter which discussed the city's recent announcement of its "A" bond rating. The writer implied that the city's sound financial position had been accomplished on the back of its utility customers because there is a transfer of money from the utility account to the general account every year in the amount of $2.066 million. The writer implied that this amount came from recent increased utility rates. Yes, there have been recent increases, but that is solely caused by (the) increased cost of the purchase of electricity from Progress Energy because of their increased ...

Leave signs alone

My letter is written on behalf of all the local citizens of Camden who believe in our wonderful country and the freedoms we are given for choices in our lives.

Why the Y?

I have two sons, both participate in all recreation department sports activities and have for the past eight years; I plan to continue to support the recreation department and would love the opportunity to support a local YMCA. A community YMCA would offer my entire family a facility to be together in one location with various physical activities for each of us. A community YMCA would also offer activities year round as well as provide an arena for competition sports, which would in turn generate income for our community.

'Y' signs

In response to "YMCA Not a Cure-All," printed Monday, September 13, I feel that it is necessary to clarify how the "Yes to the Y" signs came to be. Camden for the Y is a group of local citizens who independently came together to rally support for establishing a YMCA. [Editor's note: Mrs. Long identified herself to the C-I as a member of Camden for the Y.] Like any other political movement, we discussed ways in which our information could be shared and to raise awareness about the important decision voters face in the November election regarding recreation in ...
