A big thank you to the Kershaw County Chamber of Commerce for conducting a survey of its wide membership to help the Kershaw County School District decide how to proceed in light of the fact that a referendum put forward last November was not supported by the voters.
Please accept my sincere apology for the perceived tone of the recent column on crape murder. My passion for trees can and did, I suppose, get the better of me. I have spent my career trying to educate the public on the actual harm and long-time detrimental effect topping has on trees and it's frustrating to see the practice continue. The column was not intended to belittle or scold, nor was it directed at any one person or scenario. I'm sorry it was interpreted in that way.
Throughout my lifetime, I have been interested in all decorative plants, although my specialty is the Camellia. I was shocked while reading the editorial by one of my favorite editors lambasting one of my favorite columnists about wording in a column on crape myrtles. For some unknown reason (probably some health problem), I had failed to read the column in question. My wife left me in this world to fend for myself while she enjoys heaven and this gives me the luxury of being able to pile newspapers by my chair in sort of a too high, messy pile to ...
Surely something can be done about The State paper throwing its "Extra" on the ground and roads. Several of us on Fire Tower Road have called and E-mailed its office and received no reply, just more trash. We've called the City of Camden, the County and Sheriff's offices to no avail.
Recently, a rather important occasion went unnoticed in Camden. Bob Sheheen retired after 38 years on the board of the Carolina Cup Racing Association. In many of these years, he served as vice chairman.
I am writing to "educate" some folks with the Kershaw County school board regarding the article that came out in the Chronicle-Independent newspaper on Feb. 20, 2015.
Last November, we voted down the referendum that would empower the KCSD to tear down usable and functioning schools and construct replacement along with a new or rehabilitated Camden High football stadium. All it was going to cost was $130 million plus interest. But, fear not, they also asked us to approve a "penny" sales tax to pay for it.
In his articulate letter on diversification not being needed at Clemson University (Jan. 21, 2015), Charlie Humphries indicated he is the type of gentleman who would concede to my will to respectfully disagree with him.
I wish to complement your columnist, Josh Arrants, for the wonderful articles he has written for the Chronicle. I have read only three of his articles, but I have truly enjoyed each one. In the last one, he said he was leaving Kershaw County and I could only think of the loss to your paper.
I read the front page article on "wayfinding signage" for Camden in the Monday edition. I think this is a great idea, but I would suggest that the Camden City Council take a new look at street signs on Broad and DeKalb streets identifying street names.
I can half-way understand the 4-way stop at the corner of York and Mill streets since there is a blind, uphill snake curve on the east end of York Street which is a 30 degree RW from Mill Street to Hwy. 34. The west end of York Street, from Mill Street to Broad Street is a 90 degree RW.
I subscribe to this newspaper and the rag they call a newspaper out of Columbia. In an unsolicited testimony, I would like to make a brief comparison of the two.
My personal thanks to you and your staff for all the effort put into the coverage of Lomar Clark's death. He was among the few students over the years I have taught or worked with in JROTC I will remember for the days to come. He was the epitome of a young man that men of all ages could emulate.
I have been a member of IPTAY (Clemson University's athletic fundraising organization) for the last 26 years. Needless to say, I support and generally agree with the manner in which Clemson is operated. Recently, however, I am in disagreement with its president's call for more diversification. Generally, when someone makes such a call, they simply want more hyphenated Americans.
Each third Monday in January, America celebrates Martin Luther King Jr.'s birthday. His earthly journey was an era when federal and state law was devastating to the lives of African-Americans.
A few weeks ago, on a 4-3 vote, county council approved first reading of a general obligation bond for economic development. The dollar amount of ...
