Food for the Soul says ‘thanks’

On Friday, July 10, Food for the Soul held a kickoff lunch for the "Care ... Share ... Pass the Plate" fundraising campaign, and it was a big success! Approximately 200 people attended and were treated to BBQ, a bluegrass band and a live radio remote. Businesses and local churches donated food, desserts, paper supplies, printing services and music for the event. "Thank you" doesn't seem adequate for the outpouring of support we received. Thank you to Mayor Scully, Deborah Davis and Chief Floyd for dining with us. We welcome any opportunity to meet those who serve Kershaw County in city ...

(Editor's note: the writer submitted this letter to the editor prior to Gov. Nikki Haley's signing of legislation Thursday to remove the Confederate battle flag from the S.C. State House grounds, and the flag's removal on Friday.)

Reader: ‘Thank a bus driver’

School is out for the summer and students and teachers are enjoying a well-deserved vacation. The students have enjoyed another safe and successful year of school. There are many people responsible for this who deserve our thanks. These include parents, grandparents, teachers, administrators, school crossing guards and bus drivers among others. The one group which probably deserves the most credit for our students' safety, but seldom receive it, is our bus drivers.

Reader: leaders must catch up with 21st century

Recently, the United States Supreme Court saved the Affordable Care Act for generations to come. Many conservatives and the GOP seemed woefully ignorant of our healthcare system.

Reader wants ‘fair and balanced reporting’

During the open meetings of all of our public bodies, there is provided a period for public comments. This period is part of the meeting agenda and is, presumably, included in the meeting's minutes. Therefore, these comments become part of the public record. This period is set aside for anyone wanting to speak about matters of concern, as long as the comments are about public issues (not to include the promotion of a private business and not about personal issues). Although the public comment period is not a period of debate, it provides private citizens an opportunity to let ...

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.

Letter: Confederate descendant endorses flag removal

It appears the Confederate battle flag will soon be removed from the South Carolina Capitol grounds and placed in a museum where it belongs. What many believe to be a symbol of Southern heritage has now become a symbol of division. Only the flag of one sovereign nation should fly over the Capitol grounds. I endorse its removal in honor and wishes of my great-grandfather, a former Confederate soldier who wrote in his diary from Shanghai, Chine, on September 17, 1886:

Letter: Polk clarifies KershawHealth board comments

Letter: H-O-T! HOT! Hot!

Yes, It is hot at my house, too. As a "good citizen, concerned for the earth," I don't push my thermostat to actual comfort level. There is a sauna at my house that I didn't pay for.

Letter: Why aren't they listening?

The Beechwood development process which has been ongoing for years proceeded on Tuesday, June 9, when Camden City Council approved the Planning Commission recommendation to rezone the Knights Hill Road property, thereby permitting the development of a 254-unit retirement community. This outcome was very predictable, given coordinated deliberations behind the scene well prior to the supposed open meeting to consider citizen input and then vote.

Letter: No place like home

Our family was blessed to grow up in the Wateree (Kendall) mill village. The Kendall Mill played a very important role in our lives as it provided, through the hard work of our father, food for the table and clothes (what few there were) on our back. We were a happy crew – seven children plus Mama and Daddy – in that little mill village home that is still our gathering place today. How wonderful it is to still call it "home".
