Pat Wylie was a ‘man for all seasons’

With the passing of Pat Wylie this week, Camden has lost a true treasure. Many of us loved him and all of us respected him. He touched the lives of so many of us that his absence will be irreplaceable. To me, he was a mentor and a colleague. But, most of all, he was a dear friend.

More testing is not the answer

A recent national survey done by Gallup and the respected education organization Phi Delta Kappa had some very enlightening things to say about the obsession with standardized testing that has gripped our country for the past 20-25 years.

Writer, too, has a dilemma

I am glad to see that my good friend, Charlie Humphries, is still exercising his freedom of speech by using a member of the mass media that is part of the "most significant danger in 100 years."

Writer wants his money back

I bought $50 worth of lottery tickets for the recent huge, half-billion dollar lottery jackpot. The clerk said: "Good luck; I hope you win."

Writer has a dilemma

I have a dilemma that hopefully some of you may have the solution to. We have a president that we duly elected by giving him our votes, or in some cases withholding them from Hilary Clinton. Either way, he is the one this nation legally chose to lead us. That being the case, you would expect the people to get behind him and support him in any way possible. After all, if he is successful, are we not the beneficiaries? By the same token, if he is not, are we not losers?

Where does racism come from?

Where does racism come from? Some say it's been around forever; and, you're not going to change that. Now, that's a discussion stopper! If we say we are not racist in any way, shape or form, we're only kidding ourselves. Racism is alive and well. It lives on a continuum from minimally racist to extremely racist. If you ask a class of school children, "Where does racism begin?" They'll tell you, "At home, parents, family, the neighborhood, the playground." Out of the mouths of babes! Are we hard-wired to only be concerned about our own ...

Let’s maintain our existing tennis courts

One of the first and best impressions Camden made upon me when I moved back here in the '90s was the number of neighborhood parks and tennis courts that were available to its residents. Now, like your guest columnist, Phil Noble, I must make a "full disclosure": I am a tennis player. Shortly after I came to town, I started playing the game again for the first time since high school, tentatively at first, secretly hitting the ball for hours against the concrete wall at Scott Park, finally working up my courage to play a little doubles. I had fun ...

Thanks to officers who helped

I would like to thank the two city of Camden police officers who stopped to help me last Saturday (Aug. 19) in the 100-plus degree heat when my car overheated and died. One's name was Smith and the other I did not get, but thank you both!

Scott’s overdue concern for Trump’s morality

My mouth dropped in disbelief when I watched S.C. Senator Tim Scott on Face the Nation, Sunday, August 20. Tim Scott has voted in lockstep accord with the [resident virtually every day of Trump's presidency. On Face the Nation, under the close interview by John Dickerson, Sen. Scott -- perhaps for the first time -- was able to find fault with the president's "moral compass" because of the president's initial refusal to condemn the Nazi and KKK element in Charlottesville who violently protested for white supremacy with weapons and torches in hand.

Traffic lights needed on U.S. 521

I think lighting of the exit ramp at I 20 and US 521 is an excellent idea; however, there is another issue that needs to be addressed: traffic lights.

Writer disagrees with cartoon

At last, the United States is making a stand against South Korea's determination to have nuclear weapons that will reach the United States. The cartoon by Gary Markstein in the Chronicle on 8/4/17 leads one to believe that Markstein could sympathize with Kim Jong Un. Putting a President of the United States in such a cartoon, be it a political statement or not, was in extremely poor taste; publishing such a cartoon in a quality newspaper was in equally poor taste.

Writer wonders what goes on behind closed doors

Camden is like a little Washington, D.C. -- so much corruption going on behind closed doors, even in so-called public meetings. When a person can't comment in a public hearing, something is bad wrong. When a committee is laughing and joking in a public hearing, there is no telling what goes on behind closed doors.
