Reader: City redid Rhame right

Most of us are ready, willing and able to take politicians and other leaders to task when things are less than our expectations would have them be. Unfortunately, all too often the criticism is warranted. Unfairly, we are less willing to be complimentary when plaudits are due.

Reader asks county to stand behind community schools

The Mt. Pisgah and Bethune areas once again find ourselves in the same situation we were in less than two years ago. I appeal to everyone in the county to please stand behind our small communities and help our children to be able to stay in their communities to attend school.

Letter: A fond farewell to Nettles Cleaners

By listening to the local radio station, WPUB, and reading the Chronicle-Independent, people in Kershaw County are encouraged to trade locally. Having grown up in Camden and now living in Lugoff, I could not agree more, because we need the monies returning to Kershaw County. However, I find it a bit unusual and sad that a local business that operated for over 42 years has closed its door and little or nothing has been said as a note of deep appreciation for the years of service that Nettles Cleaners provided for the residents of Kershaw County.

In Paul's letter to the Ephesians, he says, "Awake thou that sleepest and arise from the dead and Christ shall give thee light." I am exhorting you good citizens of Bethune to awake from sleep and rise to a high calling facing us in our town and community.

Reader thankful for care at hospital

Last week, my husband had to call 911 for me -- a Sunday night at 10 p.m. I was having trouble breathing. I was recovering from two spinal compression fractures which had occurred last fall. No surgery was required for these -- they would simply take time to heal. I was on a walker, not able to go to work, but doing OK. I was taken immediately to the ER at Kershaw Health/Capella. My heart rate was 170+ beats/minute and I had a blood clot on my lung. Dangerous stuff. And scary. I was terribly frightened and in serious ...

Bethune resident upset with consolidation vote

The lights are dimmed, the curtains closed, the actors/actresses are in place, the stage is set and then the curtains open and the script begins to play. The well-rehearsed scene begins to unfold for the benefit of the ones in the audience.

Reader not happy with Beechwood outcome

Last Friday, this newspaper headlined "Beechwood retirement center contract terminated." Is anyone really surprised the project was killed? There are elements of our populace that would like nothing better than to see no growth or progress in Camden. They are very happy with things as they are. In fact, they think we have already progressed too far beyond the idolized Revolutionary War times. While giving lip service to growth and progress, they put so many limitations on it that what they visualize is of no value. When your interest in growth is restricted to things horse related, antiques and tourism ...

Auxiliary president: King inspired community volunteering

Martin Luther King Jr. was an American icon whose legacy many of us choose to honor by volunteering in our communities. King was a man who taught the world that passivity does not make a better community -- active, concerned citizens are the ones to enact change.

Reader remembers MLK Jr.’s ‘deferred dream’ sermon

Martin Luther King Jr. Day was established as a U.S. federal holiday in 1986. Americans should honor the legacy of Dr. King by enacting policies which can narrow the condition of humanity and the working class division and bring opportunity for all to prosper in America.

Readers: ‘And so it begins’ at KershawHealth

About a year ago, we were desperately seeking information about how the proposed Kershaw Health merger with Capella and MUSC was progressing and what would be the impacts on the community and on health care within the hospital's service area. The first that the public actually knew about this pending transaction was from a Chronicle-Independent article published in October 2014.
