Letter: ‘Celebrate your mother’

A very special day is fast approaching, a day we should put on the top of our list and certainly always remember. We should celebrate it to no end. This day is not a holiday, but it should be. This day is indeed only one day long, only 24 hours short, but this day should and can last forever. We can make this day last forever in our hearts, for this is where it belongs. This day is the best day. It will not end, so live it forever.

Letter: ‘The hearts of the Old Armory’

On April 14, I was getting ready for work when I received a phone call stating that I did not need to come to work because we were closing for good. I thought my friend was joking. After realizing he wasn't, I got in my car and drove to the restaurant. What I witnessed was truly shocking and devastating. All of the daytime employess were sitting on the patio, banned from going inside. One employee was sitting in her car, just crying. The police were at every entrance and the IRS swarmed inside. I can't even tell you ...

Letter: Reader not happy with Farmers Market move

The saying goes, "You only have one chance to make a first impression." Unfortunately, my first impression of the choice for the relocation of our (Kershaw County) Farmers Market at the southern edge of Historic Camden was a very, very bad one.

Letter: ‘A long-standing pattern’

It is part of a long-standing pattern whereby the North Charleston criminal justice system surveiles, harasses, profiles, threatens, tickets, endangers and incarcerates Black American members of society. The Holocaust remembered comes to mind. All human life deserves protection.

Letter: Reader concerned about society’s ‘suicide’

I write this based on a fear for the well-being and future of America. If I am wrong, somebody set me straight, please. The historian philosopher Arnold Toynbee said, "Civilizations die from suicide, not murder, and start to decay when they lose their moral fiber and the cultural elite turns parasitic, exploiting the masses." In other words, they die from within. The history of the rise and fall of great civilizations lends support to this.

Letter: Reader says Johnny is the ‘Real Deal’

Please permit me to share my thoughts with your readers about Johnny "Mr. Camden" Deal. He was a most deserving recipient of the Jake Watson Award. That award holds a special meaning to me. Jake Watson's grandmother and my paternal great-grandfather were siblings from Greenwood. Jake was a true Camden icon, as is Johnny. Equal only to my own is Johnny's love for our community. Never is he seen without that big, friendly grin. We need more people like him. Johnny is the "Real Deal."

Letter: Chamber survey critic responds

I enjoy expressing my opinion via letters to the editor and I appreciate this newspaper's willingness to consider them for publication. Recently, there have been several rebuttals or contrasting viewpoints expressed in the same medium. Some have asked if that bothers me. My response has been, if by "bother," you mean does it elicit emotion in me, yes it does. It delights me. I think it's great.

Letter: Former chamber director defends referenda survey

I enjoy letters to the editor by my friend, Charlie Humphries, but I must take issue with the position he took in his letter to the Chronicle-Independent on March 4, 2015. In addressing the issue of a possible second referendum for Kershaw County School District building projects. He states, "This is not an issue the chamber of commerce needs to chime in on."
