I want to express my thanks and appreciation for the tremendous community support of the Mid-Carolina Kershaw County Holiday Classic basketball tournament. It was particularly special to be able to hold the tournament in the newly renovated (Rhame) City Arena. I hope that this tournament will again become a community holiday season tradition. I also hope that our district can continue to collaborate with the community to bring other invitational athletic events to Kershaw County.
Charleston Mayor Joe Riley recently wrote an article on "How to make SC better. In the article, one of his recommendations was this:
Allow me to introduce myself. I am the Reverend John L. Hallman III, the minister at Bethesda Presbyterian Church here in Camden. I am writing in response to Mr. Phil Noble's editorial entitled "Ban the Presbyterians," which appeared in the 18 December, 2015 issue of the Camden Chronicle-Independent. To say that I was shocked and insulted by this article would be an understatement. While I understand that Mr. Noble's piece was a parody of Donald Trump's political speech calling for a ban on Muslims, I also know that there are those in your reading audience who may ...
Hard times create fear and repression as well as courage and commitment to change. The question: where do we stand as a nation on the issue of Syrian immigration?
I have had guns most of my life. My son has had guns most of his life. We both have friends who own guns and have for most of their lives.
As we move closer toward the preesidential primaries here in South Carolina, I would like to encourage all readers to spend their God-given time thinking about our freedoms and our rights we have as Americans.
Four score plus five years ago, the vista which is now Historic Camden Revolutionary War Site was quite different. The secrets of 18th century Camden located south of Bull Street were blanketed by cotton fields and the city dump adorned the ridge of Magazine Hill.
At this time in our lives, with acts of violence and terror committed almost daily in our nationa and around the world, it is commonplace to be discouraged and fearful for our future. If that were not enough, we must endure acts of nature such as our recent floods. God tells us to love our fellow man, but some of mankind's actions make that difficult.
I am the chairperson for the newly formed charitable organization "Vision 2016." We have formed our organization in order to raise funds to restore and beautify our town of Bethune.
On Friday, November 27, one of the high school columnists wrote about the dress code at, I can only assume, her local high school. There have been many stories from all across the country about schools coming under fire for dress codes which appear to target the female students more than male students. It is not the schools which are to blame. I feel it is society which has created this problem and until society reverses the norms it has set and the expectations it has placed on personal appearance, this battle will continue.
As I sit back and ponder the election results of several weeks ago, I feel overwhelmed. Many emotions go through my head. I can hear my grandparents, the late John W. and Ora Lee Heflin, saying to me, "Be humble, listen to the people, and always respect them."
Bob Clyburn's letter to the editor of Nov. 5 took issue with an earlier letter I had written about my frustration with deer hunters who run their dogs across my property. So please permit me to make a few more comments here about deer hunting and landowner rights and there will be nothing more from me on this subject.
I am a retired public school employee and I am very sentimental about the Abbeville v. South Carolina decision. I pray regularly for our governor, Nikki Haley, and our state legislature's leaders to have some divine guidance for all public school districts here in South Carolina.
It was with a good deal of sympathy that I read the column written by the young lady who bemoaned the lack of job opportunities for youth. We've all been there. My sympathy evaporated, however, when I read the line "adults…. must give us a chance to learn responsibility and gain necessary experience through job opportunities." (Emphasis mine.)
As a hunter with more than 60 years of hunting experience in South Carolina, I would like to stand up and say a previous letter on dog hunting ("Lugoff landowner shares hunters' frustrations," Sept. 25, 2015) is a bunch of poppycock.
