Shelter needs help for next step

Hooray for the animals and workers at the Walter M. Crowe Animal Shelter. Thank you, Ms. Thiel, Sharon and Meredith and other sponsors of the shelter, for providing such a generous gift. Now that a concrete facility is a fact, I see a real path to making this a dream come true for our furry friends.

Are we 'mildly committed' or wildly committed'?

South Carolina education, business and government came together in 2005 to pass the Education and Economic Development Act, now known as Personal Pathways to success. The act's purpose is to help build a "life-long learning" workforce that is both educated and capable of competing in the global knowledge economy.

Column sarcastic, offensive

I have enjoyed the Chronicle-Independent for years, especially the editorial pages. Our local paper has some very talented writers and I look forward to reading these columns each issue. I was appalled with Trevor Baratko's column in the April 13 paper. He is a very talented young man; however, my opinion of him as a person is completely changed now. Does he really think that the rules don't apply to everyone and that it is OK to lie as long as you "lie convincingly"? And the sarcasm of the article referring to the Masters did not go unnoticed ...

The direction of our city

Actions of our Camden cty government raise questions about the long-term direction of city plans. This is not to imply any personal attacks since I respect the individuals involved. However, major changes in policy and plans have long-term impact and therefore require much more understanding and justification.

Public comments

During this past Tuesday evening's Camden City Council meeting, it was both refreshing and encouraging to see so many folks at the meeting and most particularly to hear from those who spoke during the public forum segment of the meeting. I certainly applaud all who were there. It is the right of every citizen to be able to speak about those things that affect their lives and their community.

Snakes column a good hoax

I would like to thank your contributing editor, Glenn Tucker, for his brilliant article about the S.C. Department of Wildlife's proposal to release poisonous cotton-mouth moccasins into Lake Wateree. This was the best April Fool's joke ever! As I read the article, my blood starting boiling because I know there might possibly be someone out there fighting to preserve the snakes. Personally, I despise all snakes … so, I was really steaming! I was once told to make a lot of noise when walking down the ramp to our boat, so I even believed the part about snakes ...

Past sheriffs, deputies were devoted to service

I am writing this letter as a retired Kershaw County deputy, in reference to statements made by our new sheriff. First of all, I want to wish him the best in his new job. Sheriff Matthews has made several statements that the people in the past in Kershaw County did not do their job.

Young children in Kershaw County deserve the best that we can give them.

Councilman looking out for citizens' best interests

After reading the letter to the editor in the April 1 Chronicle-Independent praising Councilman Willard Polk for his immediate response to the request made by Paddy Bell, chairman of the Camden Garden Club, concerning the Joseph Kershaw gravesite project, I wasn't surprised.

Keeping it green

Margot Rochester was a very special person. She was teacher, mentor, author, speaker, Master Gardener and friend to all who knew her. She wrote many gardening columns for various newspapers, including Kershaw County's Chronicle-Independent, and authored two books, "Earthly Delights" and "Down to Earth: Practical Thoughts for Passionate Gardeners." She was also a very special friend to me. We would often visit public and private gardens together. Every flower she saw was her "favorite," and she just had to have it in her garden. Because she lived close to me, I visit her garden often. Walking through her garden ...

Community and its people will be warm memory for pastor

After serving 12 years in the Camden Seventh-day Adventist Church, on Boykin Road, I bid fair Camden farewell.

Polk, Gilland quick to help with tending historic site

It has been my distinct pleasure and honor to serve for two years as chairman of the Camden Garden Club's project to restore and preserve the Joseph Kershaw Gravesite. Members of this hard-working committee have planted, mulched, pruned, weeded, monitored, and dedicated themselves to restoring this historically significant plot of land to the glorious state it deserves, as the final resting place of the founder of Camden, and one of the state's first patriots.

Gambling story one-sided, 'uninspired'

When I read the headline in last Wednesday's paper, "Local skepticism, opposition greet gambling bill" I eagerly read Trevor Baratko's article to find out what the greater community was thinking.

City needs to put brakes on spending

Wake up, citizens of Camden! Do you have any clue what Mayor Jeffrey Graham and city council are doing? Probably not, we would all be at the council meetings protesting.

Absence of funeral escort complicates stressful time

I attended a funeral this week and after the coffin was closed for the last time and the family was preparing to enter, the funeral director had to announce to those in attendance to be careful to obey all traffic laws because there would be no police escort as there had been in the past.

Vote ‘no’ for taxes

While it may be overly ambitious to tackle academia and government at the same time, to some extent, that is what I'm going to do. And in doing so, heaven forbid I assume an Obama level of arrogance required to advise you what to do. I simply am saying what I am going to do and give reasons for my decision.

Reader upset over ‘massacred’ tree

Recently, a moron driving a green tractor, S.C. highway department, I suppose, mutiliated a beautiful tree in a couple's front yard while they were at work.

Dealing with depression

There is help, there is healing. Many descriptions describe the downward plunge; the things that hold you down and the things that take you out. The common known things are drugs, alcohol -- addictions to things with chemical reactions that are bad for the body. The body is a chemical reaction chamber; all it needs is a catalyst and it's a brand new chemical which can put that nail in your coffin. The reactions or side effects are the worst. It's reaction and then interaction and reaction and maybe interaction again.
