Letter: No House 52 forum disappointing

It is disappointing that there will not be a public, non-partisan candidate forum for the South Carolina House 52 candidates. Such forums are very useful in terms of citizens being able to hear candidates dig deeper and more specifically into the issues.

Letter: Students in poverty need services to succeed

The latest version of our state's school report cards will be issued in the near future. This release will undoubtedly be accompanied by the usual finger-pointing and teacher shaming. There will also surely be calls to provide public funds to private schools that would not be subject to any formal accountability.

Letter: Public deserves accurate information

On Aug. 1, I requested economic development information as to created new industrial jobs since 2012. On Aug, 10, the county administrator told me he would compile as much information as he could in regard to new industrial jobs, but he was waiting for certain information from industries. At the Aug. 23 council meeting, I requested that the Kershaw County Economic Development Office update and correct its website to indicate new actual industrial jobs added. Duiring my briefing I stated that "what we have is a county department putting out information that the department knows it can't verify."

Letter: Use KH FILOT for school safety (redux)

Letter: Power conceeds nothing without demands

Our children are growing up in times of economic uncertainty. Just as our grandparents and great grandparents learned vital lessons through economic adversity, what we learn now, in our present circumstances, can bless us and our posterity for generations to come in dealing with some of today's crises.

Letter: New CES should have electronic marquee

The new Camden Elementary School is almost completed. This new facility is a tremendous achievement that will blend extremely well into the Historic District. I believe the new school will help to attract young families to live in downtown Camden and add greatly to the quality of life in the Camden community.

Letter: Midlands Women's Center changes name, direction

Since 1984, the Midlands Women's Center has been serving the needs of families in Kershaw County, most recently from a small office on Walnut Street in Camden. After several years of declining visits, the board of directors began a year-long evaluation to better understand the needs of those who find themselves pregnant and in need of help in Kershaw County. What they found were 20-year-old methods that no longer met the needs of a changing population.

Letter: What ‘superpower’ would you choose?

"Which superpower would you choose, if you could only have one: the ability to fly or to be invisible?" On a recent podcast episode of This American Life, that was the question posed. Being Spiderman or Wonder Woman were not options.

Thank you, Dr. Frank Morgan, for recently highlighting a list of legitimate educational challenges. As a candidate and the Republican nominee for S.C. House of Representatives for District 52, I want to transcend typical campaign rhetoric and provide clear, direct answers.

Letter: Funderburk responds to education questions

I am pleased to respond to the questions that Dr. Frank Morgan presented in a letter published in the Chronicle-Independent on August 10, 2018. I appreciate Dr. Morgan's desire that education be in the forefront of the issues that voters consider during this election. The quality of our schools and the education that our children receive is vitally important to the individual success of our students and the future of our county and state.

Letter: Council meeting times inconvenient

It seems to me that both the Camden City Council and the Kershaw County Council really don't want the public to attend their meetings.

Letter: Camden helps Chesterfield neighbors

In today's world, we all too often forget that people still truly care for each other and are willing to help, not only their friends but their fellow human beings in need. During the floods of Hurricane Florence, I was reminded of that truth once again. Today, I want to give a special thanks to the city of Camden, our mayor, Alfred Mae Drakeford, city council, our city manager Mel Pearson, and the leader of our S.C. State Guard, Tom Mullikin, for their help supporting our neighboring communities during the storms and floods.
