Letter: Elgin resident wants trucks off her road

My husband and I live on a single lane dirt road, Rush Road, where two cars have to pull over for the other to get past each other. For the last several months, my husband contacted every official he could think of to call about dump trucks and semis using our road. Each time he'd call someone, they'd tell him to call some other office.

Letters: Morgan responds to education funding criticism

I always enjoy reading letters by Mr. Charlie Humphries about education. In his August 14 letter in the Chronicle-Independent, he discussed "bang for the buck" in terms of education spending.

Reader tackles education funding

Franklin Roosevelt (D) took office in 1933, served three terms and died early in his fourth term. The nation was in a state of depression when he took office and vulnerable to, and receptive of, most anything he proposed to alleviate conditions. Thus, he initiated programs and a mindset which has resulted in radical changes in government persisting to today. His New Deal established theretofore unheard of transfers of power, control and authority out of the hands of states and into those of federal bureaucracies. It gave birth to the Welfare State and a recognition, through federal programs, the votes ...

Reader promotes upcoming blood drive

How many times have you walked past posters promoting a blood drive and not realized this was an opportunity for you to give someone another chance at life or, perhaps, save a life?

Letter: Thanks, KershawHealth

On the evening of July 30, I had an attack of kidney stones. I was in tremendous pain, and at 10:30, I asked my wife to take me to the hospital. When arriving at the hospital, I was greeted by a kind, caring person. Throughout my time at the hospital, everyone was courteous and caring. In fact, the lady who checked me in came and found me in my room to see how I was doing. I am greatly impressed with the degree of caring and professionalism displayed by the staff at KershawHealth. As a new resident of Camden ...

Letter: Lowering the flag

I witnessed first-hand the thousands of people who clapped, cheered and cried as South Carolina lowered the Confederate (battle) flag. The flag was put in place in the era where Black Carolinians still tried to unwrap the bondage of segregation and our elected leaders were still bitter over Reconstruction.

Reader: Local party chairman hits homerun

When a slugger swats a baseball 400-plus feet into the fan stands, it is known to be a homerun. A big hit! Perhaps the best hit of the ballgame. A homerun brings the team together and unites its players so they may do even better. It may move them out of a slump and help them rise to even higher standards. The players feel good and think better of themselves and their team.

Clemson supporter doesn’t want Tillman Hall renamed

There is no debating the fact the Charleston murders were uncalled for, inexcusable and totally heinous. And there are few words to adequately describe the graciousness and forgiving nature in which the survivors and other persons through the state have reacted. But, unfortunately, it's not the end of the story. Demonstrations by outsiders and the pursuit of political correctness has begun to surface.

Reader: Volunteer at New Day

My heart broke when I heard about a woman who was living in a car in the Walmart parking lot because she didn't have anywhere else to stay. She had placed her children with a friend. This woman is just one of the many homeless residents in our community who could use our help. They might not look like the homeless living on the streets of a big city, but their needs are just as great.

Food for the Soul says ‘thanks’

On Friday, July 10, Food for the Soul held a kickoff lunch for the "Care ... Share ... Pass the Plate" fundraising campaign, and it was a big success! Approximately 200 people attended and were treated to BBQ, a bluegrass band and a live radio remote. Businesses and local churches donated food, desserts, paper supplies, printing services and music for the event. "Thank you" doesn't seem adequate for the outpouring of support we received. Thank you to Mayor Scully, Deborah Davis and Chief Floyd for dining with us. We welcome any opportunity to meet those who serve Kershaw County in city ...

Reader: ‘Thank a bus driver’

School is out for the summer and students and teachers are enjoying a well-deserved vacation. The students have enjoyed another safe and successful year of school. There are many people responsible for this who deserve our thanks. These include parents, grandparents, teachers, administrators, school crossing guards and bus drivers among others. The one group which probably deserves the most credit for our students' safety, but seldom receive it, is our bus drivers.
