Leave signs alone

My letter is written on behalf of all the local citizens of Camden who believe in our wonderful country and the freedoms we are given for choices in our lives.

Why the Y?

I have two sons, both participate in all recreation department sports activities and have for the past eight years; I plan to continue to support the recreation department and would love the opportunity to support a local YMCA. A community YMCA would offer my entire family a facility to be together in one location with various physical activities for each of us. A community YMCA would also offer activities year round as well as provide an arena for competition sports, which would in turn generate income for our community.

'Y' signs

In response to "YMCA Not a Cure-All," printed Monday, September 13, I feel that it is necessary to clarify how the "Yes to the Y" signs came to be. Camden for the Y is a group of local citizens who independently came together to rally support for establishing a YMCA. [Editor's note: Mrs. Long identified herself to the C-I as a member of Camden for the Y.] Like any other political movement, we discussed ways in which our information could be shared and to raise awareness about the important decision voters face in the November election regarding recreation in ...

‘No’ to using hospitality taxes for ‘Y’

Like Mr. James, I have been reading about and discussing the issue of the "Y" over the last year. I have come to the conclusion that this is not about the "Y" as much as it is about how that building will be funded. Sadly, the way the city proposes to fund this, using "H taxes," forces me to come down on the side of "No to the Y."

Editor’s column shows bias

I don't care you worked in talk radio. You are evidently like the mainstream media. Bias!

“Until then, No”

The citizens must be able to trust their elected officials. Where there is basic mistrust, conflict results. The citizens and registered voters in Camden signed a petition in great numbers to have a petition statement placed on the ballot.

‘Road diet’ doesn’t have to be perfect

This is the third letter I have written and we have had three meetings about the road diet. You said that nothing will be done until it was resolved on all sides.

Support existing rec facilities

Camden is a special small town for families, churches, and public schools. The basic building blocks for a fruitful education are the involved families, church youth organizations and mentors.

America needs to 'man up'

To evaluate the present, and make any kind of intelligent prediction for the future, one must have a knowledge of and appreciation for the past. I have lived 82 years in this ever-evolving United States of America, greatest nation on the face of the earth, and I believe that provides me a perspective, one that tells me we are rapidly changing, and not for the better I fear.

Former school trustee supports 'Y'

As a former elementary school principal and school board member in Kershaw County, I strongly support the building of the proposed Camden Sports Complex and contracting with the YMCA to operate it. I have been reading about and discussing this issue over the past few months. I have reached the conclusion that the pros are greater than the cons to having a vibrant sports complex in Camden. As many of your readers know, " a healthy community starts with the people and the place where we live. The depth and strength of our relationship with family, friends and neighbors is the ...

Wants street signs back up, more

I want to address this letter to the people who have changed the stop lights at the intersections of DeKalb and Fair Street, the intersections of DeKalb and Lyttleton Street, the intersection of DeKalb and Broad Street, and the intersection of DeKalb and Battleship Road. Why have the road names not been put back up near the stop lights?? It was always easy to give directions to someone with the road names up, but now they would not be able to find Fair, Lyttleton, Broad Street, or Battleship Road.

More 'Y' support

Being in a working family in this age is very difficult without the help of others. As a father of three, there is hardly ever enough time or resources close to me to create the healthy environment I would like for my family. As a former Camden high athlete, I know how important staying in touch with your health and your community really is, and that is why I am proud to support the effort for a Camden YMCA!

Voter suppression laws (bills) threaten true equality

I am appalled by the number of states across America who have introduced "voter suppression bills." About a dozen states are actively pushing legislation that would make it more difficult for college students, the elderly, disabled, and minorities to vote. It is sad that these state legislators have abandoned a real concern to ensure that all Americans are afforded the right to vote. Instead, these legislators are introducing measures to make the voting process more difficult.
