A moment of thanks

I wanted to take a moment to thank all of the churches, civic groups, businesses, and others that partnered with our schools to provide winter coats, gifts, and food for children in need during this season of giving. There is much to value about this community, but one of the things I value most is how this community always comes together when there is a need to be met. Please know how personally appreciative I am of everyone's generosity.

Parker right on Pope

I want to thank you and congratulate Kathleen Parker on her level-headed column about Pope Francis. She successfully flattened the hysteria that has blown up about some of Pope Francis' admonitions. Christians are not called to defend the free market. Common sense and everyone else calls them do to so. But Christians are called to leave nothing to chance when it comes to human suffering.

Evans family expresses gratitude

We wish to express our gratitude to the community, schools, law enforcement, emergency and fire departments, the church community and friends of Rob Evans. Words cannot describe how much we appreciate your kindness and sympathy during our recent loss. All of you reached out to us in many different ways and demonstrated kindness that will not be forgotten. Especially meaningful were the stories you shared with us about Rob and how he touched your lives in some way.

Roosters part of Camden’s heritage

This is a copy of my letter to the Camden Planning Commission and to Camden City Council. I have had many phone calls from people concerned about this proposed ordinance, as well as calls from my neighbors supporting my having roosters. I have been advised that I am grandfathered, but more restrictive covenants, and zoning ordinances are not the answer for Camden. Any noise nuisance noise cases should be handled on an individual basis, whether they are due to barking dogs, loud music, or roosters.

Not sentimental over JFK death

I was disgusted by the sheer sentimentality attending the 50th anniversary of the death of John F. Kennedy.

Governor doesn’t care about working class

Recently, our Republican governor, Nikki Haley, stated she will reach out to Boeing to have its 777X jet built in South Carolina. The governor is just blowing smoke, and she now realizes her time is about running out. She cares nothing about the working class and labor unions.

Positive signs

I went to Scott Park for a walk last week and was pleasantly surprised to find the road into the park and the parking near the tennis courts had been repaired. As I walked around the park, I noticed evidence that other maintenance and repairs are in progress. With great hope I went over to Legion Field and found the road into the park and the parking lot there had been repaired. There also was evidence of other maintenance in progress. It should be noted that these areas are city property with county oversight for operation.

Lions Club says ‘thanks’

The Camden Lions Club would like to thank the citizens of Kershaw County for their support of our recent Candy Days fundraiser. This is our annual event to raise funds for sight conservation and other club projects. Because of the generous contributions of our community, we are able to help 100 to 150 people each year who need help with eye exams, purchasing glasses and other health services provided by the Lions Club.

Thanks for cars, too

The S.C. Foster Parent Association (SCFPA) would like to thank everyone who donated vehicles to its On the Road Again program. This program provides transportation for foster youth who are 18, but not yet 21, actively employed and pursuing a GED or post-high school educational program. Without a vehicle, young people must rely on public transportation to get them to and from work or school. Unfortunately, public transportation is not available in many rural areas of South Carolina.

Wise should never retire

It is good to see letters of appreciation in our local newspaper. This is one that, in my opinion, should have already been written.

Common Core equals government control

I found it interesting to learn from Dr. Frank Morgan's column of 10/21/13 that he sees it as ranting, sensationalistic and over the top to question the Common Core standards. After reading the article, I feel as though Dr. Morgan sees you as ridiculous and misguided if you don't believe these standards to be good for your local school district.

Farber responds

It seems someone or someones at the Chronicle has a long-standing irritating hair across their bottom(s) when it comes to the lawsuit against the "Y" and it has made them malicious.

Finding good in the bad times

Since Labor Day, my mother has been at KershawHealth. At 3 a.m. September 2, I received a call from Morningside Assisted Living that my mother had fallen and possibly broken her hip. I met and followed the ambulance to KershawHealth, so my first interaction in this journey that has lasted six weeks now, was with the KershawHealth EMT who transported her to the KH emergency room. The ER doctor, nurses and support staff were nothing less than incredible. Within minutes we saw that it was not a broken hip as suspected, but rather a stroke in progress. Within an ...

Against the Common Core

A recent editorial featured local school district leadership touting the benefits of the new Common Core Standards. I offer the opposing argument, all of which can be verified by visiting www.scpie.org. Furthermore, I offer solutions for South Carolina's failing education system.

Having spent many hours working to get the historic Seaboard Railroad station preserved, I was extremely pleased to see that Amtrak was at the city council work session June 22 to present its plan for improvements to the station.

Rhame Arena concept

During the last Camden City Council work session, and as reported in the July 28 Chronicle-Independent, the concept of "adaptive reuse" of Rhame Arena was discussed. It was during this discussion that it was noted that the concept and sketch under discussion was developed by the daughter of Marti Wallace and Mike Jones (Elizabeth Ancrum Jones). Miss Jones developed her proposal several years ago. After a discussion of the property during a prior council meeting, her work was provided to city staff for their consideration.

2014 TripAdvisor awards

It is always exciting to read positive press in the Chronicle-Independent concerning businesses in our area. Sam Kendall's 2014 Certificate of Excellence Award was wonderfully covered by the C-I for its hard-earned recognition. Each year, TripAdvisor assesses local businesses worldwide and awards certificates to those with very high ratings. For 2014, they awarded three Certificates of Excellence in Camden to Sam Kendall's, Salud! Mexican Kitchen, and Bloomsbury Inn. In addition, their highest recognition, Traveler's Choice Awards, honors like businesses nationwide.
