Thank the road crews

I would like to commend the S.C. Department of Transportation, city of Camden and Kershaw County road crews for their work during last week's snow/ice storm. I and many of our deputies were on the roads and found them to be in better shape than we expected. I also appreciate the hard work of the various power companies for preparing for a snow/ice event by keeping trees trimmed away from power lines. Power outages were minimal in Kershaw County and where power was lost, it was quickly restored. That was a blessing. If you see one ...

A cat owner’s note to two people

The first person this letter is addressed to is the person who hit our cat, Ivy, and left her in the middle of Knights Hill Road. It may have been an unavoidable act, but you surely knew you hit her. Yet, you chose not to stop and check on her, leaving her in a state of helplessness, still alive, in the middle of the road to die. Kinghts Hill Road is in the middle of a residential area. The speed limit posted where she was hit is 25 mph. You could have stopped with little effort. For that reason, I ...

Keep your cats indoors

I sympathize greatly with Ms.Harris on the loss of her Lucy. I mourn the loss of each one of my critters when they leave but I have never lost one in the way that Ms. Harris did.

A broken heart

This letter is to the person who ran over my cat, Lucy, on Wednesday, January 29, 2014. This was the day it snowed and a lot of people I did not recognize were on my street because there was no school. I live on north Mill Street which is normally a very quiet street. My kitties were enjoying playing in the snow. Someone either accidentally (why didn't you stop?) or intentionally ran over my black and white cat Lucy. I suspect from her injuries it was a golf cart or 4-wheeler. I found her in front of my neighbor ...

Thank you from Operation Christmas Child

I'm writing to thank Camden area residents for their generosity in helping thousands of suffering children worldwide this Christmas. Through their efforts, we were able to collect over 33,000 shoeboxes-filled with toys, school supplies and hygiene items-for Operation Christmas Child, the world's largest Christmas project of its kind. These simple gift-filled shoeboxes communicate to needy children that they are loved and not forgotten.

State leaders aren’t great

Great leaders understand that by empowering other people, they become more powerful. Jesus, Mahatma Ghandi, Mother Theresa and Martin Luther King Jr. are good examples of people who understood this philosophy. Unfortunately, very few politicians in Columbia understand this concept. Otherwise, our state would have a first-class education system, a functionally ethical government, outstanding health care for all people, and safe roads. Hopefully, one day, we will have the courage to elect more politicians who understand that by empowering the electorate, our state becomes a stronger democracy of engaged citizens.

Real Christmas spirit

On Christmas Eve my daughter and I set out to do our "last minute" errands which entailed going to at least six different stores. When we returned home, I realized that I had lost a very sentimental piece of jewelry that was handed down to me through my family. Needless to say, I was heartsick, and after scouring my house and vehicle, felt that it was gone forever.

Global warming claim incomplete

In your paper's "Noted and passed" feature, December 23, 2013, I discovered that "the planet is heating up at an alarming rate." This surprised me for global temperatures have remained remarkably unchanged on a trend basis for the past 16 years. This phenomenon has received a bit of notice because it shows how complex the climate is and how difficult it is to make predictions. It also shows that there are natural factors e.g., the "Pacific Decadal Oscillation" (PDO) which negatively swamp the effects of greenhouse gasses for perhaps decades. These negative factors get precious little attention because ...

Kershaw County cares

Many, many years ago, Tom and Cyndi Fussell started a tradition of serving the hungry and homeless on Thanksgiving Day out of their restaurant in Camden. Kelly and I were fortunate to join them some years later, and -- several years ago -- formed a group called Kershaw County Cares to continue the tradition started by Tom and Cyndi. This year, more than 100 volunteers gave up part of their Thanksgiving and Christmas days to come and prepare, serve and deliver more than 1,450 meals to Kershaw County's less fortunate!

A moment of thanks

I wanted to take a moment to thank all of the churches, civic groups, businesses, and others that partnered with our schools to provide winter coats, gifts, and food for children in need during this season of giving. There is much to value about this community, but one of the things I value most is how this community always comes together when there is a need to be met. Please know how personally appreciative I am of everyone's generosity.

Parker right on Pope

I want to thank you and congratulate Kathleen Parker on her level-headed column about Pope Francis. She successfully flattened the hysteria that has blown up about some of Pope Francis' admonitions. Christians are not called to defend the free market. Common sense and everyone else calls them do to so. But Christians are called to leave nothing to chance when it comes to human suffering.

Evans family expresses gratitude

We wish to express our gratitude to the community, schools, law enforcement, emergency and fire departments, the church community and friends of Rob Evans. Words cannot describe how much we appreciate your kindness and sympathy during our recent loss. All of you reached out to us in many different ways and demonstrated kindness that will not be forgotten. Especially meaningful were the stories you shared with us about Rob and how he touched your lives in some way.

Reader takes issue with sheriff’s letter

Having waded through Sheriff Jim Matthews recent letter as published regarding his endorsement of a "Proposed Firearms Ordinance," I note that the main point (as quoted) "It prohibits the discharge of a firearm within 300 yards;" that's 900 feet!

Letter writer: South Carolina’s African-Americans should run for office

Black Americans in the state of Mississippi understand their time is at hand for their voting solidarity and economic self-reliance. Black Americans in South Carolina should also know their time is also at hand for them to learn and run for the legacy of our Black brothers and sisters in Mississippi.
