Letter: Thanks from the Camden Lions Club

The Camden Lions Club wishes to thank all those who participated in the 2018 Candy Days fundraiser. This is our primary fundraising activity that supports our charitable projects each year. This year's effort was one of the most successful in history.

Letter: Just wondering...

Would it possibly be a better use of resources and manpower to send troops to reinforce firefighters in California rather than waiting for asylum seekers along the southern border?

Letter: Why not cast ballots by mail?

After reading about the long lines at the midterm election, and the difficulty with counting all of the votes (in some states), as well as the difficulty with some of the machines malfunctioning, I was wondering why South Carolina couldn't follow Oregon's lead and have all mail ballots.

Letter: Do eyesores hurt us economically?

Although I live in Kershaw County, I belong to the Lake Carolina YMCA because it has an indoor, year-round swimming pool. The lack of such an amenity in Kershaw County, one that exists in many communities of our size and demographic, is an entire topic by itself.

Letter: No House 52 forum disappointing

It is disappointing that there will not be a public, non-partisan candidate forum for the South Carolina House 52 candidates. Such forums are very useful in terms of citizens being able to hear candidates dig deeper and more specifically into the issues.

Letter: Students in poverty need services to succeed

The latest version of our state's school report cards will be issued in the near future. This release will undoubtedly be accompanied by the usual finger-pointing and teacher shaming. There will also surely be calls to provide public funds to private schools that would not be subject to any formal accountability.

Letter: Public deserves accurate information

On Aug. 1, I requested economic development information as to created new industrial jobs since 2012. On Aug, 10, the county administrator told me he would compile as much information as he could in regard to new industrial jobs, but he was waiting for certain information from industries. At the Aug. 23 council meeting, I requested that the Kershaw County Economic Development Office update and correct its website to indicate new actual industrial jobs added. Duiring my briefing I stated that "what we have is a county department putting out information that the department knows it can't verify."

Letter: Use KH FILOT for school safety (redux)

Several weeks ago, I wrote a letter to the C-I in which I respectfully suggested that Kershaw County Council consider allocating at least some of the revenue from the County's Fee in Lieu of Taxes (FILOT) agreement with KershawHealth to the Kershaw County School District (KCSD).

Letter: Power conceeds nothing without demands

Our children are growing up in times of economic uncertainty. Just as our grandparents and great grandparents learned vital lessons through economic adversity, what we learn now, in our present circumstances, can bless us and our posterity for generations to come in dealing with some of today's crises.

Letter: New CES should have electronic marquee

The new Camden Elementary School is almost completed. This new facility is a tremendous achievement that will blend extremely well into the Historic District. I believe the new school will help to attract young families to live in downtown Camden and add greatly to the quality of life in the Camden community.

Letter: Midlands Women's Center changes name, direction

Since 1984, the Midlands Women's Center has been serving the needs of families in Kershaw County, most recently from a small office on Walnut Street in Camden. After several years of declining visits, the board of directors began a year-long evaluation to better understand the needs of those who find themselves pregnant and in need of help in Kershaw County. What they found were 20-year-old methods that no longer met the needs of a changing population.
