Letter: A call for civility, moving forward

No one knows what the future holds. But we all know who holds the future. We trust in that higher power. And we have our wits about us to do what needs doing. People have every right to state with absolute certainty their opinions but there are none who are exactly right -- we should be more humble. We have an uncertain future and we don't even know yet if we have been right in hindsight.

Letter: Councilman responds to chairman’s comments about Dec. meeting

I'd like to address the post meeting comments made by the chairman regarding my remarks at our last county council meeting. His comments were printed in the Dec. 22 issue of the Chronicle-Independent.

Letter: Unhappy with tax increase, county leadership

This week many of us will be paying our property taxes. My husband and I, like many other Kershaw County residents are not happy about the sizeable increase in tax bills over the last four years under the leadership of County Council Chairman Julian Burns. Chairman Burns ran as a conservative and still believes he is a conservative. We call him a trans-conservative; meaning his political philosophy is not aligned with his physical reality or his policies. Of course, our taxes didn't increase 22 percent over the last four years simply through his leadership. He needed the support of ...

Letter: Best business for bad decisions

I now know what business one needs to be in to have your captured customers pay for some of the company's bad decisions, bad management, bad judgment and bad investments. Since the South Carolina legislature deflected the financial impact and outcome of such problems from the company and its stockholders to the customers, it is obvious that it is very advantageous to be in the electrical power generation and distribution business. What is going on with SCANA and Santee Cooper regarding the failed nuclear expansion project is very shameful – and maybe even criminal.

Letter: Regarding fake news...

According to Kathleen Parker's recent column (Facts and truth matter most of all in news), those of us who witness and report fake news are among, "...a volunteer class of arrogantly ignorant".

Letter: Please remember the less fortunate

For some, the holidays are a celebration of life, religion, love and family. For others, the holiday season is a cruel reminder of personal misfortune.

Letter: Lost lagoon a lost opportunity

The Kershaw County Conservation District is extremely disappointed that the lagoon beside the wastewater treatment plant on Bramblewood Plantation Road has been mowed and appears to be being used for storage. This lagoon was a hidden treasure in Camden. The waterfowl and wildlife that could be seen there was extraordinary. Birders and nature lovers could see a variety of wildlife typically not found in a city setting. Several varieties of ducks frequented the lagoon; redhead, lesser scaup and ring-necked to name a few. Also there were great blue herons, American egrets, anhingas and occasionally a least tern and bald eagle ...

Letter: Was land purchase a mistake?

Kershaw County property details are a matter of public record. One can go online and find a lot of interesting facts. In the matter of the proposed purchase by Kershaw County Council of the 35.23 acres in district 277F, parcel Number 283-00-00-016, bordering U.S. 1 north of the Wateree River bridge, I am inclined to believe that a clerical error may have been made in an entry of selling price several years ago that has been brought forward under normal process and that entry may have clouded or confused the issue.

Letter: Pickleball is a great game

Pickleball, if you haven't heard of it, you most likely will. It's the up and coming racket ball game for all ages and abilities. I've heard many different stories as to how the game began; so, I won't go there. What I do know is that pickleball is a racket ball game that may be less demanding to participate in as the body gets older. The aging process often brings on shoulder, elbow, knee and other physical conditions that preclude continuing the wonderful game of tennis. Many who play pickleball once played or still play tennis ...

County is an efficient team

I write to commend our fine county staff. Team Kershaw, led by Mr. Carpenter, delivered a formidable one-two punch Tuesday night that foretells good things yet to come. It was clear that county staff stepped up to the task in budget years 2016-17 as challenging "years of project execution".

Help needed in Elgin community

The Elgin Toy Round Up and Caring Hands Project serves Elgin families and the elderly at Christmas time. They began serving families in 2005, thanks to Elgin Police Chief Harold Brown and his wife, Mrs. Kathy Brown. They have been wonderful role models and community members. Last year, the project assisted more than 65 families with 142 children and distributed 25 food boxes for Christmas meals, which included a ham and canned goods. They also provided fruit baskets and food boxes to more than 25 senior citizens. All candidates are screened for need. They must not receive assistance from other ...

Physical exercise vital to life worth living

Recently, I read in the Chronicle-Independent (C-I) that Scott Park Trail is to be paved. Apostle James' waiting tells all of us that all good and perfect gifts come from heaven.
