Letter: Dollar General rezoning puts county at crossroads

At its meeting on August 14, Kershaw County Council (KCC) will vote on whether to rezone 10 acres at the intersection of Longtown Road and Wateree Dam Road. The rezoning request has come from Dollar General so it can build a store at this location. So far, after 2 readings, KCC has voted 6 to 1 (the councilman from the district, Al Bozard, is against) in favor of this request. For the reasons expressed, this rezoning would be a mistake.

Letter: Congrats to All-America City crew

More than 10 years ago, we, as mayor of Camden and executive director of the Kershaw County Chamber of Commerce, tried to develop support and interest in pursuing All-America City status for Camden or for Kershaw County. We failed completely! We could not generate the support for the tremendous effort from many people this would require.

Letter: Grant program could be excellent opportunity

I have learned that the federal government now has grant opportunities to address school safety. One of these grants, a COPS school safety grant, is due on July 30, although I'm sure there will be other grant opportunities.

Letter: 29020 -- A construction zone?

What with all of the orange safety cones, drums and netting which proliferates throughout Camden, our city resembles one gigantic construction zone and will become more so as "improvement projects" continue. It seems that the S.C. Dept. of Transportation digs one hole, then moves on to dig another hole without completing the first hole. Witness the supposed truck route or truck improvement route that was begun several years ago along Springdale Drive and Boykin Road. That project was reportedly to be completed several years ago. I witnessed contractor after contractor move piles of dirt around and tear up pavement ...

Letter: What about the ad hoc committee recommendations?

Last fall, county council authorized the formation of an ad hoc committee, which included representation from council, the school board, the business community, the city of Camden, and the towns of Elgin and Bethune. The committee, which was very ably chaired by Mr. Sammie Tucker from county council and Mr. Todd McDonald from the school board, was initially charged with developing recommendations for council concerning funding for enrollment growth and for school resource officers (SROs).

Letter: Proposal to curb illegal immigration

As I see it, none of the countries the majority of illegal immigrants come from are suffering any consequences for their lack of securing their own borders. So, the plan I propose would help to alleviate that problem.

Letter: Wake up to state of nation, planet

Hopefully, we'll wake up to the state of our nation and our planet. Maybe you, as many others, watched and listened for news about the search and rescue of the Thai soccer team and their coach. I'd check on them prior to going to bed, again with my first cup of coffee; and, as the boys were actually coming out of the cave, I'd check in during the day.

Letter: Do we have the will to end poverty?

It took a 1971 bill, sponsored by the Democrats, to help protect Social Security to keep the elderly from being the poorest segment of the country's population. It was a time of change for the better in a world that was resistant to change.

Letter: Watch out for pols who think we're stupid

Watch out for our elected political leaders who think we are stupid and that we don't read carefully, think critically, study the issues or trust ourselves instead of blindly following them. Politicians have learned to fool us with catchy euphemisms like "Moral Mondays," "Wasteful Wednesdays," "Freedom Caucus," "Americans for Prosperity," etc. We will not be fooled. We demand straight-forward and verifiable talk.

Letter: Kershaw County voters led the way

Although it is very sad that most registered voters stayed home in both the primary and runoff elections, I am pleased to report that Kershaw County led the way in percentage of voter participation across the state. After doing research on the website: www.scvotes.org, I became very encouraged by our efforts.
