Loving ‘Mrs. Montgomery’

I love Mrs. Montgomery. I am sure many of my former classmates enjoyed Harvey Teal's October 1 (Kershaw County Historical Society column), "A visit with 'Coota' Montgomery." I still find it very difficult to address her as Coota. She will always be Mrs. Montgomery to me.

Obama is our only hope...

President Obama is our only hope of statesmanship, leadership and large vision for this nation at this critical time in our history. Obama has the courage of Lincoln. A self-governing, free society cannot function if a large segment of its population ceases to believe that government represents them, is working for them, is them.

Romney hasn't lost election

It seems your paper has taken the same position as the national media in promoting President Obama and denigrating Mitt Romney. Your contention that "Romney has lost the election" (Sept. 24.) based on his "47 percent" statement seems to echo the liberal national press. Let's drop the political rhetoric, step back for a moment and logically and objectively analyze what Romney meant (which is exactly the courtesy you would have given President Obama). He never implied that he does not care about all of America; he was simply stating a fact that a coalition of people would vote for ...

‘Y’ will benefit community

On November 6th I will vote "Yes" for the City to build a sports complex. The architectural sketches promise a beautiful building which will make Camden more attractive. If we want this town to be competitive with others and appealing to families and industries, then it is time to embrace this opportunity.

Utility fees, taxes will pay for ‘Y’

When the city council refused to honor and accept the petition concerning the erection on the proposed Y, I decided to attend the council meetings.

City earned it’s ‘A’ rating

Recently, you received a letter which discussed the city's recent announcement of its "A" bond rating. The writer implied that the city's sound financial position had been accomplished on the back of its utility customers because there is a transfer of money from the utility account to the general account every year in the amount of $2.066 million. The writer implied that this amount came from recent increased utility rates. Yes, there have been recent increases, but that is solely caused by (the) increased cost of the purchase of electricity from Progress Energy because of their increased ...

Why the Y?

I have two sons, both participate in all recreation department sports activities and have for the past eight years; I plan to continue to support the recreation department and would love the opportunity to support a local YMCA. A community YMCA would offer my entire family a facility to be together in one location with various physical activities for each of us. A community YMCA would also offer activities year round as well as provide an arena for competition sports, which would in turn generate income for our community.

'Y' signs

In response to "YMCA Not a Cure-All," printed Monday, September 13, I feel that it is necessary to clarify how the "Yes to the Y" signs came to be. Camden for the Y is a group of local citizens who independently came together to rally support for establishing a YMCA. [Editor's note: Mrs. Long identified herself to the C-I as a member of Camden for the Y.] Like any other political movement, we discussed ways in which our information could be shared and to raise awareness about the important decision voters face in the November election regarding recreation in ...

‘No’ to using hospitality taxes for ‘Y’

Like Mr. James, I have been reading about and discussing the issue of the "Y" over the last year. I have come to the conclusion that this is not about the "Y" as much as it is about how that building will be funded. Sadly, the way the city proposes to fund this, using "H taxes," forces me to come down on the side of "No to the Y."

Editor’s column shows bias

I don't care you worked in talk radio. You are evidently like the mainstream media. Bias!

“Until then, No”

The citizens must be able to trust their elected officials. Where there is basic mistrust, conflict results. The citizens and registered voters in Camden signed a petition in great numbers to have a petition statement placed on the ballot.

‘Road diet’ doesn’t have to be perfect

This is the third letter I have written and we have had three meetings about the road diet. You said that nothing will be done until it was resolved on all sides.

Support existing rec facilities

Camden is a special small town for families, churches, and public schools. The basic building blocks for a fruitful education are the involved families, church youth organizations and mentors.
