Support for animal shelter comes from many

From all of the staff at the Walter M. Crowe Animal Shelter, we would like to thank everyone for their support. The Chronicle-Independent has graciously hosted the "Pet of the Week" and thanks to their help, hundreds of dogs and cats have found new homes!

Springdale traffic area poses numerous hazards

In addition to Steve Parrott's letter of Dec. 22th I would like to add my concerns about the dangerous intersection at U.S. 1 and Springdale Drive and the numerous accidents there. I am also a resident of the Springdale area and see logging trucks as a big problem, but so are other vehicles. The 45-mph speed limit approaching the final curve at Wal-Mart needs to be lowered to 35 mph. Drivers go zooming in at 50 to 60 mph. Not only is this a busy intersection but there is a lot of traffic entering and exiting the numerous ...

School funds have specific uses

If people are going to criticize the school board and school district superintendent for how money is spent, researching first is in order. In South Carolina, facilities and personnel are separate "pots" of money and cannot be mixed. Spending money to build does not affect money for teachers.

Community pride

As we look back on 2010, one cannot but be proud of our wonderful community with all of its heritage, history and opportunities for the future. Two very important aspects of our community which set us apart from so many others are the number of community based organizations and the generous contributors who make up these organizations. One of these organizations, which made such significant contributions to our community over the past number of years, is the Camden Tree Foundation. The foundation, a non-profit corporation founded in 1982, is an all-volunteer organization which during its history has relied upon the ...

A special thank-you

My family and I have unfortunately been through the loss of my youngest brother recently. With this being totally unexpected and the first time making arrangements for an immediate family member, we contacted Robbie Powers of Powers Funeral Home.

County education leaders off course

If our school board and the superintendent of education spent as much time on education as they do on acquiring property, maybe we would be able to do a more credible job of education.

County government shut down for five days

It's the holidays and everyone enjoys being off of work and spending time with their family. So naturally the courthouse and Kershaw County offices were closed for five days straight. What? Yes, they were closed Dec. 23-27. Let me think … what holiday is the 27th? Oh yeah, it's the Monday after Christmas. Everyone celebrates that holiday, right? Even the banks can't close for more than three days in a row.

Student columnists share thoughtful messages

Dylan Sims, a student columnist from North Central High School, and Christina Stokes, a Camden High School student columnist, are to be commended for their recent articles: Dylan's "Christmas Carols offer more than just a catchy tune" in the Dec. 10 edition and Christina's "Show your Christmas spirit by sharing your blessings" in Friday's edition.

Logging trucks a danger to other travelers

As a concerned citizen and parent, I would like to know if the city has any plans to deter logging trucks from turning over in one of the city's busiest intersection. I am a resident of Springdale Drive and a husband and father of three children who views this situation as a warning sign that one of these truckers are going to murder an innocent bystander. I feel strongly and thankful that God's protection has kept someone from getting killed as of yet.

School district facilities need closer look

When I retired from the Kershaw County School Board in 1998, it was not a retirement from continuing to seek the best that our educational institution had to offer to our youth. I thought, surely the technological system would take over since each student in ninth grade was given a computer to aid in their educational advancement and achievement. This is/was not so for many students.

School district wasting taxpayer money

Amazing how the school board can find money for their purposes, isn't it. Well, here's what they can do with that money (because it can only go to "facilities"): Sort through the files that are "necessary" and "unnecessary" and the furniture they want to keep, take it to a storage unit, then implode the building and rebuild on that same piece of property a more efficient plan or whatever it is they feel is so essential short of the Taj Mahal. Then thin out the personnel bloat that is the poison in all administrative offices. You will need ...

Spend money on children, not bureaucrats

The school board has plans now to spend $1.25 million of the IPP funds to buy the Howden-Buffalo office building (the old Builders Transport building on U.S. 1 in Camden, near Wal-Mart) for a new administrative office complex. We just have a few questions for the board.

KershawHeath provides outstanding care

Having recently had surgery at KershawHealth, I would like to compliment our hospital and staff. How fortunate we are in Kershaw County to have a facility that provides excellent, compassionate care. What could have been an uncomfortable Thanksgiving Day was actually a pleasant experience thanks to the staff at KershawHealth. Each person I encountered was careful and caring, and each was absolutely committed to the job at hand, and certainly to the patient. As a matter of fact, several friends and family members visiting from Columbia remarked that when they need hospital care, they will come here … and with pride ...

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.
