Another 'good ole boy' lawsuit

Well let's get these ridiculous and embarrassing law suits going again. Get them back on course! They are such a good use for our country's image and above all, a great way to spend our tax dollars. Our county needed a sheriff change and now that Jim Matthews has become our sheriff and seems to be doing all the right things for all of us, he seems to have upset our country's "good ole boys."

President Obama has shown a willing to stand up, speak out and to take definitive act even in the face of political and social risk for the health needs of the poor and other who has been locked out and price out of access to health care before fulfilling his own political ambition.

Why was suspect out of jail?

The front page of the July 2 issue chronicles (no pun intended) the lengthy criminal record of a (drive-by shooting) suspect, Bobbin, that includes 10 offenses, including five with a weapon.

A sad day

It is a sad day in America, which is supposed to be land of the free and home of the brave when so many people have voted for no prayer in schools and no National Anthem and if they do they wind up getting sued by someone has never had a personal relationship with my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. We even have a book, The Holy Bible, to go by, and I want to say to the people who deny him in front of other people. The Bible says and this is Jesus speaking "If you deny me, I ...

Students need the Bible

I was saddened by the choice of the senior(s) of the graduating class in (the) Lexington (school) district, but rejoice with the students who chose to include the "Invocation" in their program. But even more saddened hearing and reading in the Chronicle (that) Camden High chose to omit prayer and the "National Anthem" during their graduation ceremonies.

Accident waiting to happen?

First of all I've been driving since 1957 and I've never had an accident that was my fault. Now to get to my question and comment.

Unionization expands democracy

Our Governor Nikki Halley, U.S. Sen. Jim Demint and U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham do not appear to understand the benefits that unionization has bestowed upon the nation by expanding democracy, humanizing the work place and improving our national standard of living.

Don't vote for supporters of 'sham tax'

Those voters, aka taxpayers, that attended the Kershaw County Council meeting to protest the idea that the Sheriff's Department would be downgraded to Kershaw County Police astounded the members of council to the extent this idea was abandoned. This is not to be left laying around. Don't be surprised if this move becomes a part of another move or to be brought before council to vote on again.

Even Obama doesn't deserve this fate

Anyone who boasts of the slightest degree of compassion must pray for the president of these United States, whose plight is beyond description.

Volunteer, help in any way

We at the Dusty Horseman Gallery and Deltiology in Camden donate our unsold magazines to the KershawHealth hospital in Camden. The staff is always appreciative when we bring those copies of magazines for it helps inpatient status patients to spend their time reading. It started me thinking that if the staff at KershawHealth is appreciate of this little gesture, how appreciative if people donate their used magazines and books or even board games that they no longer play, or even more important, their time.

Anthem, prayer missing from graduation

Regarding graduation high school class 2012 in Camden, S.C. and all the other schools in the state: I attended the affair and was appalled that there was no prayer or that the National Anthem was not played. I know that some think they can't have prayer because of the law. The way I see it, someone has to be brave enough to stand up to the law and be willing to take the consequence. I know that there may be a few that would complain about having a prayer, but I assure you that there are 10 times ...

Reader, wife support removing Confederate battle flag

Several years ago, my wife and I, along with our youngest son, his wife and their children, attended a Fourth of July celebration in Bath, Maine. Bath is a picturesque little city which only Maine seems capable of providing. It is also a seafaring town, home to the Bath Iron Works, where ships have slid down the ways for close to 200 years.

Reader: take advantage of 'living history'

I was browsing the internet looking at different sites listing historical events of the past 100 years and was surprised to see how much of history had been left off. So many events which have taken place during the past century which have been instrumental in the growth of this country have been left out of our history books and articles of today.

Letter: Reader’s proud of people in Charleston

Words fail me to express just how proud I am of the people in Charleston for the class they have exhibited in handling a senseless, tragic act of violence committed by a psychologically impaired individual. In this day and time, when our society seems to be seeking lower and lower morals and displaying less belief in God, it is the first and most encouraging sign of hope for salvation of our society I have seen in a number of years.
