As president of the National Civic League, I am thrilled to personally congratulate Kershaw County on being selected as a finalist for the All-America City Awards.

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.

Letter: Companies shouldn't profit at worker's expense

It was never more evident than recently when the National Labor Relations Board ruled that 178 flight readiness technicians and inspectors at the Boeing plant in North Charleston can vote on whether to join the union.

Letter: Don't fail to market to retirees

Two years ago, SmartAsset, a personal finance technology company headquartered in New York City that uses financial modeling to power advice on major financial decisions evaluated 10 South Carolina cities from Hilton Head to Aiken to Myrtle Beach in terms of the best recreational and social opportunities for retirees, and ranked Camden number one. This rating was before the stunning transformation of our City Arena and our fantastic tennis and pickleball complex (thank you, City Manager Mel Pearson and city council).

Letters: If you're not angry, you're not paying attention

If you are not angry yet, you are not paying attention. Or perhaps you didn't see the limited April news coverage that 97 percent of Republicans in the United States House of Representatives in Washington (including five of South Carolina's six male Republican Reps) voted slyly to steal Social Security's $2.9 trillion surplus.

Letter: Minor correction to fine coverage

Please accept my compliments for the extra fine work covering The Wall That Heals by the Chronicle-Independent. It was an overwhelming event for thousands, especially yours truly. I am of the opinion that historic correctness is essential for such events, and those of our city's storied past. With that said, I must report to your readers a minor error in your excellent front page story appearing in the Tuesday edition of the C-I.

Letter: Don’t let fear, greed rule ballot box

Edmund Wilson once said, "No two persons read the same book." It struck me that no two persons see the same news coverage. We look through the lens of our own experiences. Too many people see through fear of financial ruin and cannot bear to share with others. Others see through ill-gotten financial gain and cannot bear to see that sense of well-being diminished. Although I do not believe in the mantra, "Things used to be great" or that "our country is falling apart," I do fear that greed and drive for power have become more pervasive. We all love ...
