Letter: Please remember the less fortunate

For some, the holidays are a celebration of life, religion, love and family. For others, the holiday season is a cruel reminder of personal misfortune.

Letter: Lost lagoon a lost opportunity

The Kershaw County Conservation District is extremely disappointed that the lagoon beside the wastewater treatment plant on Bramblewood Plantation Road has been mowed and appears to be being used for storage. This lagoon was a hidden treasure in Camden. The waterfowl and wildlife that could be seen there was extraordinary. Birders and nature lovers could see a variety of wildlife typically not found in a city setting. Several varieties of ducks frequented the lagoon; redhead, lesser scaup and ring-necked to name a few. Also there were great blue herons, American egrets, anhingas and occasionally a least tern and bald eagle ...

Letter: Was land purchase a mistake?

Kershaw County property details are a matter of public record. One can go online and find a lot of interesting facts. In the matter of the proposed purchase by Kershaw County Council of the 35.23 acres in district 277F, parcel Number 283-00-00-016, bordering U.S. 1 north of the Wateree River bridge, I am inclined to believe that a clerical error may have been made in an entry of selling price several years ago that has been brought forward under normal process and that entry may have clouded or confused the issue.

Letter: Pickleball is a great game

Pickleball, if you haven't heard of it, you most likely will. It's the up and coming racket ball game for all ages and abilities. I've heard many different stories as to how the game began; so, I won't go there. What I do know is that pickleball is a racket ball game that may be less demanding to participate in as the body gets older. The aging process often brings on shoulder, elbow, knee and other physical conditions that preclude continuing the wonderful game of tennis. Many who play pickleball once played or still play tennis ...

County is an efficient team

I write to commend our fine county staff. Team Kershaw, led by Mr. Carpenter, delivered a formidable one-two punch Tuesday night that foretells good things yet to come. It was clear that county staff stepped up to the task in budget years 2016-17 as challenging "years of project execution".

Help needed in Elgin community

The Elgin Toy Round Up and Caring Hands Project serves Elgin families and the elderly at Christmas time. They began serving families in 2005, thanks to Elgin Police Chief Harold Brown and his wife, Mrs. Kathy Brown. They have been wonderful role models and community members. Last year, the project assisted more than 65 families with 142 children and distributed 25 food boxes for Christmas meals, which included a ham and canned goods. They also provided fruit baskets and food boxes to more than 25 senior citizens. All candidates are screened for need. They must not receive assistance from other ...

Thanks to local fire departments for FireFest

I am the daughter of a retired firefighter. I come to the FireFest to enjoy seeing the entertainment and watching the education about the danger of fires. Thousands of people, especially children, learn a lot about the importance of fire safety.

Education Oversight Committee needs major reality check

Imagine if the teacher of your child or grandchild or some other young person in your life told the class that no matter what grades were made on a given test, 30 percent of the class would fail. I feel very certain in saying that this would be viewed as unfair and arbitrary, and with good reason.

‘Fake news’ at the NYT

My personal, hands-on experience is exactly opposite of Tom Reichert's claim when writing, "Regardless, newspapers are not the ones peddling fake news" (Good journalism is real, Tuesday, Oct. 3, 2017, pg. 2).
