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.

Letter: Burns endorses Emmons for Elgin mayor

Melissa Brazell (Emmons) has a love for her community and a passion for public service. Those shining qualities were apparent when I encountered her when I was campaigning for chairman of Kershaw County.

Reader wants Camden wi-fi expanded

Now that Christmas has come and gone I am sure there are a number of new iPad's, laptop computers and more wireless adapted electronics in use. Camden is one of the few cities in this state that has made the effort to establish a free wi-fi network in the community. It would be an asset to the community to see the coverage area expanded more than it is now.

Reader applauds Drakeford’s support of Marketplace Fairness Act

I wish to applaud Councilwoman Alfred Mae Drakeford for her letter "Urges support for Marketplace Fairness Act." I agree wholeheartedly with everything she said. Ever since the state started requesting the total amount of out-of-state purchases be added to the state tax return, I have compiled and included this on my return. I keep a list of the out-of-state businesses and amount I spent during the year so the total will be given to the CPA who prepares my taxes.

Reader upset with ‘State House employees’

Here in South Carolina, the era of economy is not working for most of the working class. No one should be satisfied with the pace of our state's progress.

Letters: Young reader recounts ‘best toy’

It would be very difficult to name all of my favorite toys of my past, but the ones that really stick out upon the rest are the ones that didn't come from Walmart, Target or any other store.

Letters: Reader proud of vets, kids, county council

Anytime we, as a county, can truly honor something or someone, a warm feeling can overcome you. This is good. This experience happened Dec. 9, the final (regular) Kershaw County Council meeting of 2014. One had to be there to witness this "proud of you" feeling obviously everyone certainly felt.

Letters: Reader says Democrats ‘confessing’ torture is distraction

I'm sure everyone is abreast of all the hullaballoo over interrogation techniques used by the CIA to get information from the Guantanamo detainees to assist in avoiding another World Trade Center disaster. Dianne Feinstein, along with Obama and most of the congressional Democrats, insisted on "confessing," as they put it, despite the secretary of state urging against it, terming it detrimental to our interests and safety abroad. So, immediately, China and Korea termed us "bad boys," and why not -- didn't the current administration essentially say that?

Letter: Reader appreciates Tucker follow-up story

I applaud the Chronicle-Independent for front page coverage of the dropping of charges against Mr. Sammie Tucker. All too often, especially in larger media markets, good news is relegated to the back pages, while sensational news makes the front page. I believe our community newspaper makes a concerted effort to report the news as it happens and, more importantly, reports good news.

During this past Thanksgiving season, I had the honor and pleasure of working with Rev. Johnnie Smith's ministry, which, year-round, feeds, clothes and gives shelter to those in need.
