Belated Thanksgiving blessings

In America, we celebrate Thanksgiving in November. It's a day to give thanks for our many blessing.

A Thanksgiving for Kershaw County

The word "connection" is described in the dictionary as a set of people associated with each other….a common link, interest, or passion -- a coming together of sorts. "Help" is described as giving assistance, support, to rescue or save. "Goodness" is described as the state of being good with character, morality, and righteousness. If one were to search for the definition of "The Folks of Kershaw County," they would surely find those three words.

Not a tourist

I was surprised, and frankly insulted, to learn in the November 2 C-I that the Camden city manager believes that I am a tourist in Camden.

Thanks for not raising taxes

I am writing on behalf of the newly formed Kershaw County Tea Party that meets in Cassatt. Our membership wants to commend and applaud the Kershaw County Chamber of Commerce and County Council Chairman Gene Wise for opposing the tax increase requested by the Kershaw County School Board.

Good Samaritan

I just want to say "thank you." I went to get gas at Circle K in Lugoff Sunday, October 28. I used my debit card. I did not know I had lost it until Monday. My heart fell to my feet. I knew the only place I had been was Circle K. I went back Monday with a very aching heart, hoping that someone had found it. To my amazement, it was there. You found it and I know not who you are, but from a joyful heart, I say God bless you and I know that God will say ...

Governor has no class

Governor Haley knew over two weeks ago that someone still unknown had hacked into the computers at the South Carolina Department of Revenue and that the personal information of approximately 3.6 million taxpayers had been compromised. She finally decided to tell those taxpayers last Friday afternoon, the time when all bad news is dumped.

Museum article should help

Early this AM (Friday), I picked up a copy of your paper and I was absolutely delighted that you wrote such a fine article detailing my proposal to bringing my collections back to Camden in the form of a local museum. It was an outstanding article. If we are successful in opening this downtown museum, it will be largely due to the article you wrote! I appreciated this more than you will ever know.

Patriot’s Landing?

I feel compelled to bring to your reader's attention a slight correction regarding the photograph showing the dedication of the Patriot's Landing. The loyalist fort captured by troops commanded by Thomas Sumter was called Cary's Fort. It was located on the west side of the river fronting the old ferry. That ferry was located about one mile south of current highway bridge. The area designated as Patriot's Landing did not exist as a landing until the construction of the first bridge near that point in 1878. There is no historical significance with the spot dating back ...

On Friday, October 12, I was in Kershaw County. My Dad had ridden with me. He suffered a fairly serious stroke shortly after 2 p.m. He is now at MUSC in Charleston recovering.

Grab Life by leading

History, horses and hospitality! This has been our quasi-brand in the past. Our new brand is "Grab Life." We currently have a division in the city which I do not understand and also regret.

Spend wisely

We have been hearing about the City of Camden and the Y. First of all, I would like to point out there is no binding agreement that I am aware of between these organizations. Next, let's look at the YMCA history for Camden.

Graham misrepresents

In his campaign ad titled "Focusing on Our Future" in the Oct. 10 edition of the C-I, Mayor Graham takes credit for several items that bear correction. First, his ad states that he is responsible for bringing the Farmers Market to downtown Camden. If my recollection of the particulars is correct, this statement is patently false. The year was 2005 and it was Rep. Laurie Funderburk and Andy Rollins with the Clemson Extension Service who wrote a small grant, the Bank of Camden (now First Community Bank) loaned the market the use of the lot, somebody else donated the tables ...
