Bethune Woman’s Club thanks merchants for help

I would like to express my thanks to the merchants of Bethune who so very graciously assisted with two projects sponsored by the Woman's Club of Bethune. They also supported a gift-wrapping project by the Sandy Grove United Methodist Church Youth Group.

Bethune resident upset with consolidation vote

The lights are dimmed, the curtains closed, the actors/actresses are in place, the stage is set and then the curtains open and the script begins to play. The well-rehearsed scene begins to unfold for the benefit of the ones in the audience.

Reader not happy with Beechwood outcome

Last Friday, this newspaper headlined "Beechwood retirement center contract terminated." Is anyone really surprised the project was killed? There are elements of our populace that would like nothing better than to see no growth or progress in Camden. They are very happy with things as they are. In fact, they think we have already progressed too far beyond the idolized Revolutionary War times. While giving lip service to growth and progress, they put so many limitations on it that what they visualize is of no value. When your interest in growth is restricted to things horse related, antiques and tourism ...

Auxiliary president: King inspired community volunteering

Martin Luther King Jr. was an American icon whose legacy many of us choose to honor by volunteering in our communities. King was a man who taught the world that passivity does not make a better community -- active, concerned citizens are the ones to enact change.

Reader remembers MLK Jr.’s ‘deferred dream’ sermon

Martin Luther King Jr. Day was established as a U.S. federal holiday in 1986. Americans should honor the legacy of Dr. King by enacting policies which can narrow the condition of humanity and the working class division and bring opportunity for all to prosper in America.

Readers: ‘And so it begins’ at KershawHealth

About a year ago, we were desperately seeking information about how the proposed Kershaw Health merger with Capella and MUSC was progressing and what would be the impacts on the community and on health care within the hospital's service area. The first that the public actually knew about this pending transaction was from a Chronicle-Independent article published in October 2014.

‘Beechwood not the place for massive development’

In spring and early summer, I attended two city of Camden public hearings regarding the request by Ed Royall and Austin Sheheen on behalf of the owner of Beechwood for approval of a 254-unit "retirement" development on the 65-acre parcel at 100 Knights Hill Road. At both meetings, the first before the planning commission on May 19 and the second before city council on June 9, there was public opposition expressed by many regarding the housing density of the development plan which had the appearance of a subdivision rather than a retirement village.

Reader believes Beechwood plans are veering off track

After the Planning Commission and City Council's public hearings this past Spring I went on record supporting the development of the Beechwood property as a true continuous care retirement community, but also questioned whether or not potential developers would present a plan suitable for that purpose.

Basketball Tournament a great success

I want to express my thanks and appreciation for the tremendous community support of the Mid-Carolina Kershaw County Holiday Classic basketball tournament. It was particularly special to be able to hold the tournament in the newly renovated (Rhame) City Arena. I hope that this tournament will again become a community holiday season tradition. I also hope that our district can continue to collaborate with the community to bring other invitational athletic events to Kershaw County.

Minister ‘shocked and insulted’ by Noble column

Allow me to introduce myself. I am the Reverend John L. Hallman III, the minister at Bethesda Presbyterian Church here in Camden. I am writing in response to Mr. Phil Noble's editorial entitled "Ban the Presbyterians," which appeared in the 18 December, 2015 issue of the Camden Chronicle-Independent. To say that I was shocked and insulted by this article would be an understatement. While I understand that Mr. Noble's piece was a parody of Donald Trump's political speech calling for a ban on Muslims, I also know that there are those in your reading audience who may ...
