‘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 ...

Hard times create fear and repression as well as courage and commitment to change. The question: where do we stand as a nation on the issue of Syrian immigration?

Executive director thanks Historic Camden founders

Four score plus five years ago, the vista which is now Historic Camden Revolutionary War Site was quite different. The secrets of 18th century Camden located south of Bull Street were blanketed by cotton fields and the city dump adorned the ridge of Magazine Hill.

Reader: God is still in charge

At this time in our lives, with acts of violence and terror committed almost daily in our nationa and around the world, it is commonplace to be discouraged and fearful for our future. If that were not enough, we must endure acts of nature such as our recent floods. God tells us to love our fellow man, but some of mankind's actions make that difficult.

Letter: Parent addresses dress code column

On Friday, November 27, one of the high school columnists wrote about the dress code at, I can only assume, her local high school. There have been many stories from all across the country about schools coming under fire for dress codes which appear to target the female students more than male students. It is not the schools which are to blame. I feel it is society which has created this problem and until society reverses the norms it has set and the expectations it has placed on personal appearance, this battle will continue.
