Letter: Reader takes it upon self to look into crape myrtle mystery

Throughout my lifetime, I have been interested in all decorative plants, although my specialty is the Camellia. I was shocked while reading the editorial by one of my favorite editors lambasting one of my favorite columnists about wording in a column on crape myrtles. For some unknown reason (probably some health problem), I had failed to read the column in question. My wife left me in this world to fend for myself while she enjoys heaven and this gives me the luxury of being able to pile newspapers by my chair in sort of a too high, messy pile to ...

Letter: Camden resident upset about The State’s ‘garbage’

Surely something can be done about The State paper throwing its "Extra" on the ground and roads. Several of us on Fire Tower Road have called and E-mailed its office and received no reply, just more trash. We've called the City of Camden, the County and Sheriff's offices to no avail.

Recently, a rather important occasion went unnoticed in Camden. Bob Sheheen retired after 38 years on the board of the Carolina Cup Racing Association. In many of these years, he served as vice chairman.

I am writing to "educate" some folks with the Kershaw County school board regarding the article that came out in the Chronicle-Independent newspaper on Feb. 20, 2015.

Letter: Reader says KCSD referenda not chamber issue

Last November, we voted down the referendum that would empower the KCSD to tear down usable and functioning schools and construct replacement along with a new or rehabilitated Camden High football stadium. All it was going to cost was $130 million plus interest. But, fear not, they also asked us to approve a "penny" sales tax to pay for it.

Letter: Reader responds to Clemson diversification letter

In his articulate letter on diversification not being needed at Clemson University (Jan. 21, 2015), Charlie Humphries indicated he is the type of gentleman who would concede to my will to respectfully disagree with him.

Letter: Reader grateful for Arrants columns

I wish to complement your columnist, Josh Arrants, for the wonderful articles he has written for the Chronicle. I have read only three of his articles, but I have truly enjoyed each one. In the last one, he said he was leaving Kershaw County and I could only think of the loss to your paper.

Letter: Reader says signs need to be seen

I read the front page article on "wayfinding signage" for Camden in the Monday edition. I think this is a great idea, but I would suggest that the Camden City Council take a new look at street signs on Broad and DeKalb streets identifying street names.

Letter: Reader worries about 4-way stop

I can half-way understand the 4-way stop at the corner of York and Mill streets since there is a blind, uphill snake curve on the east end of York Street which is a 30 degree RW from Mill Street to Hwy. 34. The west end of York Street, from Mill Street to Broad Street is a 90 degree RW.

Letter: Reader moved by cadet’s homegoing

My personal thanks to you and your staff for all the effort put into the coverage of Lomar Clark's death. He was among the few students over the years I have taught or worked with in JROTC I will remember for the days to come. He was the epitome of a young man that men of all ages could emulate.

Reader: Diversification not needed at Clemson

I have been a member of IPTAY (Clemson University's athletic fundraising organization) for the last 26 years. Needless to say, I support and generally agree with the manner in which Clemson is operated. Recently, however, I am in disagreement with its president's call for more diversification. Generally, when someone makes such a call, they simply want more hyphenated Americans.

Letter: Reader still seeking MLK’s dream

Each third Monday in January, America celebrates Martin Luther King Jr.'s birthday. His earthly journey was an era when federal and state law was devastating to the lives of African-Americans.

Letter: Graham’s ‘pain capable’ bill unconstitutional

U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina has promised to introduce his "Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act" in the Senate in the next few weeks. This is an unconstitutional attack on women's rights and healthcare. In 1973, the Supreme Court, in a 7-2 decision, allowed women to terminate a pregnancy based on the 14th Amendment to the Constitution. That amendment guarantees the right to privacy. It is the law of the land.
