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 ...

School district should review priorities

As a child I was taught you have certain priorities in life. When you become an adult it still should have a place in your decision-making. The Kershaw County School District's recent vote to spend up to $1.25 million shouldn't even be on the list. As a taxpayer, I think keeping qualified teachers teaching is of more importance.

Land purchase for new district offices 'poor decision'

Why would the local school board vote to spend $1.25 million on property for a new district office when they have the land available at both the former Pine Tree Hill School and Camden Middle School properties? How much more money will the new administrative building cost? Is there some other way this money could be spent on children rather than administrative offices?

Heed voters' message on spending

Voters soundly defeated the 1 percent sales tax increase. Imagine my surprise to read in The State Nov. 28 the backers still want to increase our tax expenses when so many people are having a hard time making ends meet just for normal living expenses. Our unemployment is still very high and is not coming down anytime soon.

Volunteers join couple's mission to feed hungry

In 2005 our dear friends, Tom and Cindy Fussell, owners of the Smokin' and Grillin' Restaurant in Camden, invited our family to take part in a small ministry they started feeding the hungry and homeless. That Thanksgiving Day, along with a small group of "restaurant regulars," we fed around 100 people a traditional Thanksgiving meal.

'Get government out of the way and let teachers teach'

I am very sorry that Kristie Alvey was "terribly upset" by my letter contrasting Richland School District Two's recent decision to lower taxes to Kershaw County School District's continued attempts to raise taxes.

What a sad day it is when the citizens of Camden vote OK to sell and serve alcohol on Sunday.

Now is time for elected leaders to work together

Our mid-term general election is over, and several thoughts come to mind.

A bottomless fountain of funding?

I'm thankful for our teachers and our school district for continuing to meet the needs of our children!

Looking for an ‘angel’

On Sunday afternoon (Sept. 7), my friend was driving south of Jefferson Davis Highway. It was raining, with lots of thunder and lightning. When she got past the BP station, a transformer must have exploded. Her car hit the pole. She suffered some bad injuries.

On Aug. 24, 2013, my brother, Alan Robinson, was cruelly and brutally murdered. The week of Aug. 24, 2014, his killer was tried, found guilty and sentenced to life in prison without parole for his crime.
