During the spring of 2009 my gravel road was in the process of being paved. The contractors engaged by the county made such a mess of the job that I was not surprised to learn that it was their first municipal road project. Parking lots and driveways were the extent of their previous experience. I decided to get someone in county government involved to sort out this mess so I attempted to contact my county councilman, Sammie Tucker. The Kershaw County website had no e-mail address (at the time) but listed a phone number, for Mr. Tucker, so I called ...

Letter: IRS offers one-time special filing relief program for small charities

In a community such as ours, odds are that the Chronicle-Independent's readers are associated with one or more small nonprofit organizations. We would like to get the word out that some small nonprofit organizations are at risk of losing their tax-exempt status because they have not filed required returns with the Internal Revenue Service for 2007, 2008 and 2009. It is important that they act now to preserve their status by filing returns by Oct. 15, 2010.

The article goes on to state that "The town council in the town of 860 people this week closed a deal to buy the closed depot from CSX Transportation. Residents hope to renovate the depot that holds memories for thousands of Marines. While the depot is closed, Yemassee is still a working station and the only Amtrak stop between Charleston and Savannah.

Rhame Arena concept

During the last Camden City Council work session, and as reported in the July 28 Chronicle-Independent, the concept of "adaptive reuse" of Rhame Arena was discussed.
