Citizens benefit from united law enforcement effort

I would like to applaud Sheriff Matthews for the honor and courage he brings to Kershaw County and surrounding communities. His qualifications and experience far exceed our comprehension as law-abiding citizens.

Make a vow to help others

This is a new year. A new beginning. A time to think about family, friends and acquaintances. A time to think about how much they mean to you.

Security important across the board

We at Let Freedom Ring do want to publicly state what happened to Congresswoman Giffords and everyone in attendance at the "Meet the Congresswoman" event at a Safeway Grocery store in Tucson on Jan. 8 was a tragedy and we pray for the full recovery of all who were wounded and pray for the families of those who were slain. I ask the local Tea Party to also make similar public sentiments.

KCSO delivers professional service

I had an old aluminum jon boat stolen from my property in late August of last year. Imagine my surprise when I received a call from Kershaw County Sheriff's Office Investigator Justin Dill Jan. 14, informing me that they had arrested the individuals responsible for the theft. Although the boat was not recoverable, the suspects were in custody.

Community makes positive change through election

It has always been a fantasy of mine to write something that my local newspaper would publish. Thinking too hard, I just could not come up with anything. It's right in front of me now and so easy to write. Easy to say, easy to write. Truth and reality!

A simpler time

Here is my take on the law escort fee for funerals. I agree there should be a fee, just not as much as proposed. It was stated that it takes deputies away from their patrol. If this is the case the school board has to be charged for the traffic control before and after school, because we have more schools in this county than SROs to handle this task so that takes deputies away from their patrol. There has been times when there are two or three deputies in the highway at Jackson School in the afternoon just standing around.

What can we expect from our new sheriff?

I recently came across the following statement, "The Law in the U.S. requires three elements to be present in any crime: the Act, Intent and Damage (mens rea -- willful intent, actus reus -- act or crime, corpus delicti -- body of the crime, the actual damage). It is estimated that 90 percent of the people prosecuted by the courts in the U.S. committed no crime." That is a very powerful statement. Basically what it is saying is that most people in prison today are there because we simply refused to accept their behavior. It has become the norm in America ...

A palace for kings and queens

The kings and queens who rule over the education of our children and spend 42 cents of every dollar they receive on them are building a new and wonderful palace. Their kingdom is vast as they are the largest employer in all of Kershaw County. They purchase property across this land, sometimes at higher than market value. The kings and queens lay off teachers first while keeping the palace staff; after all, they must have a large staff to look over their vast kingdom. Now that their subjects have denied more funds, they have decided to show their subjects that ...

Support for animal shelter comes from many

From all of the staff at the Walter M. Crowe Animal Shelter, we would like to thank everyone for their support. The Chronicle-Independent has graciously hosted the "Pet of the Week" and thanks to their help, hundreds of dogs and cats have found new homes!

Our county at work?

As we start 2011, let's take time out to thank your county leaders and administration for a great year in 2010.

Springdale traffic area poses numerous hazards

In addition to Steve Parrott's letter of Dec. 22th I would like to add my concerns about the dangerous intersection at U.S. 1 and Springdale Drive and the numerous accidents there. I am also a resident of the Springdale area and see logging trucks as a big problem, but so are other vehicles. The 45-mph speed limit approaching the final curve at Wal-Mart needs to be lowered to 35 mph. Drivers go zooming in at 50 to 60 mph. Not only is this a busy intersection but there is a lot of traffic entering and exiting the numerous ...

School funds have specific uses

If people are going to criticize the school board and school district superintendent for how money is spent, researching first is in order. In South Carolina, facilities and personnel are separate "pots" of money and cannot be mixed. Spending money to build does not affect money for teachers.

Community pride

As we look back on 2010, one cannot but be proud of our wonderful community with all of its heritage, history and opportunities for the future. Two very important aspects of our community which set us apart from so many others are the number of community based organizations and the generous contributors who make up these organizations. One of these organizations, which made such significant contributions to our community over the past number of years, is the Camden Tree Foundation. The foundation, a non-profit corporation founded in 1982, is an all-volunteer organization which during its history has relied upon the ...

A special thank-you

My family and I have unfortunately been through the loss of my youngest brother recently. With this being totally unexpected and the first time making arrangements for an immediate family member, we contacted Robbie Powers of Powers Funeral Home.

County education leaders off course

If our school board and the superintendent of education spent as much time on education as they do on acquiring property, maybe we would be able to do a more credible job of education.

Reader ‘pleased’ with Amtrak plan

Having spent many hours working to get the historic Seaboard Railroad station preserved, I was extremely pleased to see that Amtrak was at the city council work session June 22 to present its plan for improvements to the station.

Rhame Arena concept

During the last Camden City Council work session, and as reported in the July 28 Chronicle-Independent, the concept of "adaptive reuse" of Rhame Arena was discussed. It was during this discussion that it was noted that the concept and sketch under discussion was developed by the daughter of Marti Wallace and Mike Jones (Elizabeth Ancrum Jones). Miss Jones developed her proposal several years ago. After a discussion of the property during a prior council meeting, her work was provided to city staff for their consideration.

2014 TripAdvisor awards

It is always exciting to read positive press in the Chronicle-Independent concerning businesses in our area. Sam Kendall's 2014 Certificate of Excellence Award was wonderfully covered by the C-I for its hard-earned recognition. Each year, TripAdvisor assesses local businesses worldwide and awards certificates to those with very high ratings. For 2014, they awarded three Certificates of Excellence in Camden to Sam Kendall's, Salud! Mexican Kitchen, and Bloomsbury Inn. In addition, their highest recognition, Traveler's Choice Awards, honors like businesses nationwide. As the C-I well-covered earlier in the year, Bloomsbury was a Traveler's Choice Award winner for ...
