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.

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 ...

Haley not as 'hard-nosed' as Knotts

Mr. Ulmer, I take you to be an intelligent man, otherwise the Camden Independent would not employ you as a staff reporter. Having said that, I compliment you on a well-expressed article in the May 30th issues. But while I think it well expressed, I wish to comment on some of your conclusions.

Boogertown not to blame

I was dismayed to see an unfair and inaccurate characterization of our old historic neighborhood of Boogertown on the front page of the Friday, June 1st issue of the C-I. The caption that appeared under the "Brick by Brick: The Walls Tumbled Down" photo, which depicted the demolition of the band room at the old Camden Middle School (and old Camden High School), falsely portrayed our neighborhood's efforts to propose an alternative to the proposal to extend Jordan Street to Laurens as having been responsible for the property being "vacant for years and subject to vandalism." The implication was ...

'Thank you' to Mr. Jones

I would like to voice my endorsement of Kershaw County Councilman Jimmy Jones. I've known Mr. Jones a long time on a professional level and I cannot tell you strongly enough how impressed my family and I have been with him as a servant of the county. He has always been available to me or a member of my family and if he could not pick up the phone at the very moment I called, he would promptly return the call and he always would find a solution to our dilemma.

Jimmy Jones helps solve problems

It is very seldom that we have a person holding public office of whom we are truly proud. We have such a person in Jimmy Jones, Kershaw County councilman.
