Good Samaritan

I just want to say "thank you." I went to get gas at Circle K in Lugoff Sunday, October 28. I used my debit card. I did not know I had lost it until Monday. My heart fell to my feet. I knew the only place I had been was Circle K. I went back Monday with a very aching heart, hoping that someone had found it. To my amazement, it was there. You found it and I know not who you are, but from a joyful heart, I say God bless you and I know that God will say ...

Governor has no class

Governor Haley knew over two weeks ago that someone still unknown had hacked into the computers at the South Carolina Department of Revenue and that the personal information of approximately 3.6 million taxpayers had been compromised. She finally decided to tell those taxpayers last Friday afternoon, the time when all bad news is dumped.

Museum article should help

Early this AM (Friday), I picked up a copy of your paper and I was absolutely delighted that you wrote such a fine article detailing my proposal to bringing my collections back to Camden in the form of a local museum. It was an outstanding article. If we are successful in opening this downtown museum, it will be largely due to the article you wrote! I appreciated this more than you will ever know.

Patriot’s Landing?

I feel compelled to bring to your reader's attention a slight correction regarding the photograph showing the dedication of the Patriot's Landing. The loyalist fort captured by troops commanded by Thomas Sumter was called Cary's Fort. It was located on the west side of the river fronting the old ferry. That ferry was located about one mile south of current highway bridge. The area designated as Patriot's Landing did not exist as a landing until the construction of the first bridge near that point in 1878. There is no historical significance with the spot dating back ...

Great professional assistance

On Friday, October 12, I was in Kershaw County. My Dad had ridden with me. He suffered a fairly serious stroke shortly after 2 p.m. He is now at MUSC in Charleston recovering.

Grab Life by leading

History, horses and hospitality! This has been our quasi-brand in the past. Our new brand is "Grab Life." We currently have a division in the city which I do not understand and also regret.

Spend wisely

We have been hearing about the City of Camden and the Y. First of all, I would like to point out there is no binding agreement that I am aware of between these organizations. Next, let's look at the YMCA history for Camden.

Graham misrepresents

In his campaign ad titled "Focusing on Our Future" in the Oct. 10 edition of the C-I, Mayor Graham takes credit for several items that bear correction. First, his ad states that he is responsible for bringing the Farmers Market to downtown Camden. If my recollection of the particulars is correct, this statement is patently false. The year was 2005 and it was Rep. Laurie Funderburk and Andy Rollins with the Clemson Extension Service who wrote a small grant, the Bank of Camden (now First Community Bank) loaned the market the use of the lot, somebody else donated the tables ...

Council's actions disappointing

As a retired educator I am very disappointed with a couple of decisions that the Kershaw County Council has made.

‘Y’ can’t solve all problems

I doubt there is a soul in this town who wouldn't agree that the YMCA is a wonderful institution. It is, but the miracles writers claim it will bring leave me wondering why every town hasn't built one yesterday!

Time running out for honest taxpayers

(Editor's Note: the C-I was unable to print this letter prior to Kershaw County Council's Oct. 9 meeting. Despite the timing, we believe the author has the right for his opinion to be viewed by the public during this election season. The letter has been edited to reflect that council's meeting took place prior to publication.)

Shameful behavior

I am truly flabbergasted and ashamed. Some of the same people, including educators, who chastised county council for the way they treated students, for not putting students first, and telling them they (council) should be ashamed of themselves, were some of the same people who made a mass exodus during Councilman Bobby Gary's announcement of a "Proclamation for Amari Williams' Got Heart Day" after the millage increase for the school district failed.
