Handle with care

This is a particularly precarious time for health care; there are many uncertainties, many worries. The current antagonistic verbiage between members of Kershaw County Council and KershawHealth has added to my concerns about this community's health care future.

Jones’ actions are misguided

Beware residents of Kershaw County. We cannot be passive about what is happening in county council as we absolutely need to keep a hospital that takes care of everybody whether they are capable of paying their bill or not.

At KershawHealth, patients come first

I would like to respond to the recent articles concerning KershawHealth's request for help with our EMS. I have lived all my life in Kershaw County. We have a good community with many caring people. This includes county council, KershawHealth's board of directors, and the leadership and employees at KershawHealth.

Funding the sheriff’s office

On April 1 Sheriff Matthews spoke to the members of the American Legion Post 17. We were amazed that the sheriff's office was able to perform so many functions so well with so few on his staff.

Sending our tax dollars outside of Kershaw County

A local businessman asked me the other day how things went for us at the Cup. I told him that we were told by the Camden Police Department that our services would not be needed so we concentrated on DUI enforcement after the race and the results were good. We only made two DUI arrests, but a lot of open container violations were cited and we wrote a lot of warning tickets.

KershawHealth progress

Recently, Chairman Scott Ziemke and several of the senior members of the KershawHealth Board have been subjected to criticism that was harsh in tone, but somewhat vague and indistinct as to specific incidents wherein they had failed to discharge their duty as board members.

Technological wizardry

Is there anyone else out in this vast universe who is zero to non-astute in the world of technology? I felt on top of the game when I mastered the microwave oven. I'm on my third, and I've advanced to a "wild" 900 watts.

Councilman Jones

So Councilman Jones Has questions about many issues at Kershaw Health but can't be bothered with attending a Board of Trustees meeting where he could possibly ask those questions and possibly get answers. Sounds like he doesn't want to engage in any dialogue and just wants to hear his own voice. Is it because he won't like the answers or maybe he just likes to hear his own voice and see his name in print.

Carlton out of line

I read with great interest Dr. Marguerite Carlton's letter ("Mr. Jones' deplorable attack, March 15). I believe the comments she made concerning Councilman Jimmy Jones were completely out of line. Dr. Carlton needs to step outside the inner circle of the hospital and reassess what her role exactly was. She also needs to provide a measure of transparency regarding contractual arrangements, benefits and income she and her practice received and continues to receive as a result of (KershawHealth Board of Trustees) decisions made while she was serving as a (trustee).

HTAX won’t purchase Maxway building

Last week's front page article on the Maxway building at Broad and Rutledge streets has led some people to believe that the city will be spending Hospitality Tax money to purchase and demolish the building. That is not the case.

CPD shows real class

After the recent passing of our Dad, we were escorted by the Camden Police Department from the city limits to Malvern Hill Baptist Church. Many in the procession following the '73 Ford Pick-up which carried our Dad's casket were moved by the real class displayed by each officer along the route. I hope those involved will accept our sincere thanks for our safe passage and their respect. We hope the county will go back to providing the same honor for safe passage at this difficult time for a family.

McCaa House project

In the Friday edition of the Chronicle-Independent, there was an article that touched on county funding of the adaptive reuses restoration project of the McCaa House underway by Historic Camden that incorrectly stated the County has provided $21,500 for this project. The County has generously supplied $41,500 for this initiative.

Ambulances

I am a Kershaw County taxpayer, living on a fixed income. My Escrow/mortgage payment went up this year to cover for 2012 and 2013 portion of the solid waste fee, charged to county residents to dispose of solid waste, 2012 was the first year this extra $55 was added to Kershaw property taxes.

Thanks, Mayor

Thank you, Mayor Tony Scully, for your "Downtown" column in last week's newspaper. It was informative to read about several projects, activities, and issues being explored by our city. We would encourage you to continue keeping all of us aware of topics like these. And please include your contact information should any of us wish to participate in the dialogue. Again, thanks!
