Vote 'solid no' for new taxes

Soon the registered voters of this county will go to the polls and cast a vote for an untimely proposition. This vote will determine whether the taxpayers and people that are in transit will have to begin paying an additional tax on everything that is bought in this country with the exception of food and related items. This is not a time in the history of this county for taxes to be raised for any reason. The uncertainty of the economy at this time is beyond predictable. With all of the backbiting that is taking place in this state and ...

Sheheen a proven leader

Our state has suffered for too long because of a chief executive who has been unable to work with members of his own party, much less cross party lines to work for the best interests of South Carolina. According to most polls, we are on the threshold of continuing that trend.

Choice for sheriff made clear

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 ...

Tucker will stand up for voters

I was undecided initially about who would be the best candidate for Kershaw County sheriff. However, after reading the article I realized who would be the person with the character needed to represent the people of Kershaw County.

Senior citizens all 'has-beens' to Haley

"Has-been." This is the quote of Tim Pearson, campaign manager of gubernatorial candidate Nikki Haley, referring to John Rainey, a South Carolinian from Anderson and a conservative Republican for many years. This remark has yet to be repudiated by Ms. Haley.

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.

Letters: Yemassee preserves depot; why can't Camden?

Now I'm really puzzled! In the Aug. 26 edition of The State newspaper, it was reported that "Yemassee closes deal on rail depot." 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.
