Family grateful to future neighbors

My brother and sister-in-law, Bart and Kathleen, have been eagerly anticipating their move to Camden since purchasing a beautiful home in April. This decision to relocate did not come easy, as their roots are deeply established in Ohio, where both have been vital residents in their community, making significant contributions in their professions and with their service and philanthropic work. Children and grandchildren are also there. But Camden was calling.

Reader: proposed gun ordinance would destroy Second Amendment

I am writing in reference to Sheriff Jim Mathews' letter and the follow up letter from Joe Upchurch published in the Chronicle-Independent concerning a proposed county gun control ordinance. I thought this proposal had been killed, but now I understand that it has gone to a committee for possible revision.

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.

Reader takes issue with sheriff’s letter

Having waded through Sheriff Jim Matthews recent letter as published regarding his endorsement of a "Proposed Firearms Ordinance," I note that the main point (as quoted) "It prohibits the discharge of a firearm within 300 yards;" that's 900 feet!

Letter writer: South Carolina’s African-Americans should run for office

Black Americans in the state of Mississippi understand their time is at hand for their voting solidarity and economic self-reliance. Black Americans in South Carolina should also know their time is also at hand for them to learn and run for the legacy of our Black brothers and sisters in Mississippi.

Sheriff doesn’t support firearms ordinance as proposed

I want to go on record by saying that I am opposed to the "firearms discharge" ordinance as it was originally introduced. However, I am in favor of one if it can be revised to better fit Kershaw County. I also want the public to know that I am pro-gun, pro-Second Amendment and a lifetime member of the National Rifle Association (NRA). As sheriff, I have approved hundreds, if not thousands, of concealed weapons permit applications. I am also an avid hunter and gun owner.

Reader thinks firearms ordinance response to 'select few'

Kershaw County Council is making an attempt by backdoor rulings to attempt to eliminate hunting by prohibiting discharge of firearms within 300 yards of a residence, church, or school. There are very few places where you can go and not be within 300 yards of a prohibited structure. The place I have set up is within 300 yards, but I am able to shoot away from the house. If I try to move 300 yards, I may not be able to use the same target, which is located away from the structure.

Reader: Councilman Jones should apologize for ‘bunker’ comment

Dear Councilman Jimmy Jones, how out of touch are you with Kershaw County citizens to tell those who may disagree with you to go back to our bunkers?
