Long-term growth must be addressed

Now that all the budgets in Kershaw County have been adopted and we're a year away from the next budget process, there's merit in thinking about the budget issues facing Kershaw County moving forward.

Big thanks to VFW

As a guest, I found your recognition and celebration of this most important day, Memorial Day, held at the American Legion in Camden, to be very patriotic and impressive.

Rotary singers 'knocked ball out of the park'

On Friday, May 19, our community was honored when the Camden Rotary Club Singers sang the National Anthem at Spirit Communications Park prior to the Fireflies baseball game. This night was designated as Rotary International Night and how appropriate to have our own honor America with the special rendition of the Star Spangled Banner.

Distemper in dogs is preventable

There have been multiple cases of distemper in dogs in North Carolina and South Carolina during the last six months. There has been one confirmed distemper case at the Kershaw County Humane Society and six other highly suspicious cases. The KCHS is an open admission shelter so no animal is turned away, but several steps are being taken to limit the spread of this horrible disease. All dogs entering the shelter are immediately vaccinated and placed in isolation within the shelter which has strict guidelines for disease control. With dogs that are surrendered to the shelter by their owner, the ...

Reading does make you well rounded!

Right on, Mr. Cahn! I couldn't agree more with the May 5 column, "Reading makes you well-rounded."

Writer’s column on opioids a ‘gem’

I am a conservative who wants the America I have spent 86 years enjoying alive and vibrant for my descendants. Patriotism, freedom of speech, capitalism, very limited socialism, and support of our elected government must be the priority of elected officials who are supposed to represent us. Strict allegiance to the Republican or Democratic Parties to whom they give allegiance must be prioritized below the wishes of the citizens who elect them. Incorrect voting to maintain a legacy for any human is hog wash. More later.

The world needs ditch diggers, too

Jim Tatum's March 21 column was entertaining as well as informative. It certainly brought to light the need for qualified home repair professionals. This planet needs carpenters, electricians and plumbers. Scores of your readers are helpless without them. Many of us, like you, feel good when we repair or build something with our own hands. All of us are happy when we save money.

Complain to THE STATE about circulars

I have received complaints from constituents regarding The State newspaper's delivery of The Extra, which is a circular periodically distributed via door-to-door delivery to the citizens of Kershaw County. The Extra is delivered by couriers who typically throw the circular, contained in a plastic bag, on the driveways of Kershaw County homes and on public rights of way in front of homes. Many times the circulars are not picked up. I am concerned about these complaints and what many citizens consider litter.

Writer not part of 'silent majority'

Mr. Jim Matthews, I will not be part of the silent majority. I loudly and proudly support your effort to increase the police force we crucially need for this community. So, we have a net increase of one deputy per shift -- over the last 27 years? Does this sound reasonable to anyone out there? Considering the increase in duties and area crime, our leaders need to seriously review Sheriff Jim Matthews' budget requests. He is right; so often the ones who support measures are quiet, stifled or intimidated by loud dissenters Mr. Matthews has called called "cave dwellers," citizens against ...

Writer thanks KershawHealth caregivers

The family of Evelyn H. Swygert, would like to thank the dedicated doctors, nurses and other caregivers of the Kershaw Health hospital, who took care of our mother during her recent hospitalization. A special thanks goes to the nurser in the ICU department. They were not only kind and understanding to the family but filled our mother's final days with comfort, compassion and respect. They are a credit to their profession.
