Letter: What ‘superpower’ would you choose?

"Which superpower would you choose, if you could only have one: the ability to fly or to be invisible?" On a recent podcast episode of This American Life, that was the question posed. Being Spiderman or Wonder Woman were not options.

Letter: Gustafson responds to education questions

Thank you, Dr. Frank Morgan, for recently highlighting a list of legitimate educational challenges. As a candidate and the Republican nominee for S.C. House of Representatives for District 52, I want to transcend typical campaign rhetoric and provide clear, direct answers.

Letter: Funderburk responds to education questions

I am pleased to respond to the questions that Dr. Frank Morgan presented in a letter published in the Chronicle-Independent on August 10, 2018. I appreciate Dr. Morgan's desire that education be in the forefront of the issues that voters consider during this election. The quality of our schools and the education that our children receive is vitally important to the individual success of our students and the future of our county and state.

Letter: Council meeting times inconvenient

It seems to me that both the Camden City Council and the Kershaw County Council really don't want the public to attend their meetings.

Letter: Camden helps Chesterfield neighbors

In today's world, we all too often forget that people still truly care for each other and are willing to help, not only their friends but their fellow human beings in need. During the floods of Hurricane Florence, I was reminded of that truth once again. Today, I want to give a special thanks to the city of Camden, our mayor, Alfred Mae Drakeford, city council, our city manager Mel Pearson, and the leader of our S.C. State Guard, Tom Mullikin, for their help supporting our neighboring communities during the storms and floods.

Letter: Where is responsible, dynamic leadership?

With Hurricane Florence causing havoc in North Carolina and South Carolina for the past few days, it's made me wonder if it has to be. I know that atmospheric science is a highly complex subject and that global warming is a complicating factor. But, one never hears anymore, like in years past, about the thought of trying to do something about it. Thus the subject of responsible and intelligent, dynamic leadership.

Letter: Thanks to all who kept us safe

I'm sure Mayor Drakeford and city council would agree with me that once again, we are indebted to City Manager Mel Pearson and his indefatigable staff, as well as to Tom Couch and public works, for their long range planning and expertise in making the city remarkably safe and secure over the last weekend.

Letter: Thanks for great community event

Thank you to the city of Camden, Downtown Camden and the citizens of our county for a wonderful event on Friday night, September 7. Our own Patrick Davis and his Midnight Choir filled the Town Green with song, with friends and with good vibes. The Fine Arts Center of Kershaw County has as its mission to provide superior educational, instructional and entertainment opportunities that elevate and enrich the community for all residents of Kershaw County and beyond. We certainly fulfilled that mission on Friday night.

Letter: Use KH FILOT funds for school safety

With the start of a new school year, the topic of school safety has again come to the forefront in our community, in our state and across the nation.

Letter: Fairfield Electric Cooperative committed to transparency

I am extremely interested in economic development and the furtherance of economic development in Kershaw County for revenue and jobs. One essential component of economic development is providing affordable utilities for residential, commercial and industrial. A major utility provider in Kershaw County is Fairfield Electric Cooperative.

Letter: Eating an elephant

The issue is how to eat the elephant. Conventional wisdom has it you do so one bite at a time.

Letter: Difficulty reaching across the aisle

On Aug. 8, I joined my South Carolina 5th District telephone town hall to engage with my Washington House of Representatives congressman, Ralph Norman. I pressed the button early on to ask a question. I was not called upon. Perhaps there were simply too many concerned citizens. Perhaps his helpers know of my differences with him because of my many telephone calls to his office regarding my concerns or my letters to the local papers. Regardless, I wish to ask Mr. Norman my questions. The town hall topic was how to deal with violence in the schools. He had on ...

Letter: Tired of whining news media

It seems that some editorial writers do not like the fact that Trump will tell it like it is about the news media. They have been after him since he had the nerve to win the election. The fact that we, "the deplorables," did not even listen to them and vote like they were telling us to do galls them even more.

Letter: Questions for House District 52 candidates

It is an extremely positive reflection on our community that we have two very qualified and purposeful candidates for the House District 52 seat in the South Carolina General Assembly. Contested races give voters a choice and promote healthy discussion and debate about the issues that impact our community.
