Letter: Proposal to curb illegal immigration

As I see it, none of the countries the majority of illegal immigrants come from are suffering any consequences for their lack of securing their own borders. So, the plan I propose would help to alleviate that problem.

Letter: Wake up to state of nation, planet

Hopefully, we'll wake up to the state of our nation and our planet. Maybe you, as many others, watched and listened for news about the search and rescue of the Thai soccer team and their coach. I'd check on them prior to going to bed, again with my first cup of coffee; and, as the boys were actually coming out of the cave, I'd check in during the day.

Letter: Do we have the will to end poverty?

It took a 1971 bill, sponsored by the Democrats, to help protect Social Security to keep the elderly from being the poorest segment of the country's population. It was a time of change for the better in a world that was resistant to change.

Letter: Watch out for pols who think we're stupid

Watch out for our elected political leaders who think we are stupid and that we don't read carefully, think critically, study the issues or trust ourselves instead of blindly following them. Politicians have learned to fool us with catchy euphemisms like "Moral Mondays," "Wasteful Wednesdays," "Freedom Caucus," "Americans for Prosperity," etc. We will not be fooled. We demand straight-forward and verifiable talk.

Letter: Kershaw County voters led the way

Although it is very sad that most registered voters stayed home in both the primary and runoff elections, I am pleased to report that Kershaw County led the way in percentage of voter participation across the state.

Letter: Industry favors the prepared

I have heard arguments over the cost of economic development since I began my career in community and economic development in 1963. It was then that S.C. was experiencing major industrial investments by businesses that looked to expand in the underdeveloped Southeastern region of our nation. Leading the way in new development in S.C. during the 60s and 70s were Upstate cities and counties mainly Spartanburg and Greenville.

Letter: How many jobs have been created?

In the 25 May 2018 edition of the Camden Chronicle-Independent, Chairman Burns was quoted as saying that during his first term, more than 600 jobs had been created in Kershaw County. Not too many weeks ago I read in your newspaper that only 25 new jobs have been started here during this time; Which number is correct? If 600 jobs have been created, where are they?

Letter: Lavish spending not the answer

We need economic development so Kershaw County can create jobs and add tax and fee revenue from such development. New industrial jobs and new industrial fees are essential. But it is also essential that we take care of our small business owners and look out for the taxpayers by lessening their tax burden.
