Letter: Run government like a good business

Most people, myself included, really don't pay a great deal of attention to the details of how our elected officials run our county government. Results, cost, and progress (?), yes, that's more interesting.

Letter: Firearm dealer’s advertising offensive

Palmetto State Armory recently released a statement in support of the Second Amendment. It included this sentence: "It is our hope that we can approach this negativity with humanity and both sides of the argument can come together and have a civil and intellectual conversation that continues to make this amazing country better."

Letter: Will the new schools being built be safe?

I see beautiful new school buildings being built in our school district. Will these schools have limited access points, bullet proof glass and other safety features?

Letter: Please, park somewhere besides Cedars Cemetery

I would like to know that this is not a race issue. I have lived in Camden my entire life and one thing that works my nerves is seeing people go and park their trucks and cars in Cedars Cemetery. I truly find that rude. They run over the graves and tombstones.

Letter: Gun control, gun violence, assault rifles

After this latest, sad, school shooting in Florida, the cries from the gun-grabbers has grown ever louder. And, they have even enrolled the children to speak on the issues of gun control and taking assault rifles off the market.

Letter: Due process, civil rights absent in family court

Having been dealing with Kershaw County Family Court for more than two years now, I find it amazing how judges and lawyers who practice family law have immunity from lawsuits or wrong doing. We all know that family courts are considered a he said/she said court. And that a person's due process or civil rights do not count in family court. But we never ask, "What about the children's rights?" Are our children's rights protected and are their best interests really being considered?

Letter: Jones questions econ dev expenditures

I commented and made a motion at the Jan. 29, meeting of county council as to cost effective means I believe can and should be used to address the problems and issues that were identified by staff, consultants, and department of commerce as to economic development in Kershaw County in 2014. My motion was to limit costs incurred by the citizens of Kershaw County going forward as to the $17.2 million bond by not spending anymore of the proceeds not already spent or committed. To date, approximately $3.6 to $4 million of $17.2 million bond have been ...

Letter: A beautiful memory of the Price House

We were children. My sisters and I walked from Mulberry Plantation to Jackson School in Camden. The Price House was then in the same location it is now on Broad Street. The children walked country miles to school in the cold and sometimes rain.

Letter: ‘So, what the hell do we do now?’

We live in a culture filled with violence in real life, in the movies, in video games and in posted YouTube videos. Fixing the breakdown of the family unit, complete with love and discipline and structure, will be the first step to bringing our social relationships into a realm of sensitivity and togetherness.

Letter: Resist evil

So many men are so insecure, so pitiful, that they have to hold women or Muslims or blacks or Mexicans or LGBTQ people down so they can feel powerful. We have seen too much evidence of that. All you men who are not like that, (and there are many) need to confront your fellow men in and out of Congress face to face -- not just on Facebook or with your friends. We are all reeling from the most recent shooting. Seventeen more young people are dead.

Letter: We have a college town in Kershaw County

We said emphatically that "Kershaw County is open for business," when we cut the ribbon on Thursday on the new college campus in the county seat; and, we acted decisively on Vision 2030 with the courage to invest in a better future.

Letter: 'Fake news' is becoming self-sustaining

Apparently the "fake news" issue is becoming self-sustaining.

Letter: Owners to blame for feral dogs

Seeing packs of feral dogs running loose on their property and watching them attacking their animals and children is a frightening situation for the people of Elgin to experience. Frankly, I'm surprised they put up with it as long as they have without doing something themselves.
