Rhame Arena concept

During the last Camden City Council work session, and as reported in the July 28 Chronicle-Independent, the concept of "adaptive reuse" of Rhame Arena was discussed. It was during this discussion that it was noted that the concept and sketch under discussion was developed by the daughter of Marti Wallace and Mike Jones (Elizabeth Ancrum Jones). Miss Jones developed her proposal several years ago. After a discussion of the property during a prior council meeting, her work was provided to city staff for their consideration.

2014 TripAdvisor awards

It is always exciting to read positive press in the Chronicle-Independent concerning businesses in our area. Sam Kendall's 2014 Certificate of Excellence Award was wonderfully covered by the C-I for its hard-earned recognition. Each year, TripAdvisor assesses local businesses worldwide and awards certificates to those with very high ratings. For 2014, they awarded three Certificates of Excellence in Camden to Sam Kendall's, Salud! Mexican Kitchen, and Bloomsbury Inn. In addition, their highest recognition, Traveler's Choice Awards, honors like businesses nationwide. As the C-I well-covered earlier in the year, Bloomsbury was a Traveler's Choice Award winner for ...

Reader takes issue with sheriff’s letter

Having waded through Sheriff Jim Matthews recent letter as published regarding his endorsement of a "Proposed Firearms Ordinance," I note that the main point (as quoted) "It prohibits the discharge of a firearm within 300 yards;" that's 900 feet!

Letter writer: South Carolina’s African-Americans should run for office

Black Americans in the state of Mississippi understand their time is at hand for their voting solidarity and economic self-reliance. Black Americans in South Carolina should also know their time is also at hand for them to learn and run for the legacy of our Black brothers and sisters in Mississippi.

Sheriff doesn’t support firearms ordinance as proposed

I want to go on record by saying that I am opposed to the "firearms discharge" ordinance as it was originally introduced. However, I am in favor of one if it can be revised to better fit Kershaw County. I also want the public to know that I am pro-gun, pro-Second Amendment and a lifetime member of the National Rifle Association (NRA). As sheriff, I have approved hundreds, if not thousands, of concealed weapons permit applications. I am also an avid hunter and gun owner.

Reader grateful for Karesh Wing

My rehabilitation stay at the Karesh Wing was an amazingly good experience. I transferred from KershawHealth after surgery (broken femur) on June 8th, and I was released to return home on July 8th.

I would like to commend Dr. Bright Williamson, Dr. Edward Gill and their staffs as well as the staff at KershawHealth for the excellent care I received during my recent unexpected surgery.

Reader favors proposed firearms ordinance

Reader thinks firearms ordinance response to 'select few'

Kershaw County Council is making an attempt by backdoor rulings to attempt to eliminate hunting by prohibiting discharge of firearms within 300 yards of a residence, church, or school. There are very few places where you can go and not be within 300 yards of a prohibited structure. The place I have set up is within 300 yards, but I am able to shoot away from the house. If I try to move 300 yards, I may not be able to use the same target, which is located away from the structure.

Reader: Councilman Jones should apologize for ‘bunker’ comment

Dear Councilman Jimmy Jones, how out of touch are you with Kershaw County citizens to tell those who may disagree with you to go back to our bunkers?

Reader: Thomley is sore loser

I arrived at my place of work at 4:10 a.m., June 16. Before opening my door and deactivating the security alarm, I read the Chronicle-Independent headline still in the paper rack: Thomley sues Matthews! What a way to start the week. What a sore loser! Is this a joke? Must be! Maybe this is Saturday Night Live.

Camden residents support Graham for city council

I want to voice my support for Jeffrey Graham in his pursuit of a seat upon Camden City Council. I think Jeffrey is a unique candidate with a perspective we need. He is a family man with young children, and because of this I think he can represent the needs of many other young families in the Camden area. While all of the current council members have important and impressive qualities, the direct representation of our younger generations is imperative, and with Walter Long leaving, we do not have such a voice on the council if not for Jeffrey Graham.

Reader supports Reuwer

I am supporting David Reuwer for probate judge in the coming election. In any election, voters must ask a couple of things: does the candidate know what he or she is doing, and does the candidate possess the proper attitude to best serve the people of Kershaw County. Well, Mr. Reuwer is a practicing lawyer and Elgin municipal judge experienced in probate matters including the new, revised probate code. Mr. Reuwer is a hardworking man dedicated to the protection, conservation, and celebration of the historical legacy of Kershaw County. He has a strong need to help others; it seems to ...

Reader: ‘vote no twice’

I see signs appearing throughout the county imploring you to "Vote Yes Twice" regarding the school referenda. If you favor tearing down perfectly good schools and Camden High's football stadium, construction new ones to replace them, to the tune of $130 million plus interest; and if you want to pay higher taxes on everything you buy, then by all means vote yes.

Former superintendent supports Phase 2 referenda

One of the best things about being an educator is the opportunity to share in the success of students' educational careers. Watching students learn to read, speak a foreign language or pass an AP exam are highlights that I've shared with numerous young people over the years, but none of them comes close to what I consider one the best highpoints I ever experienced: the excitement that I saw on the faces of the students from North Central High School years ago when I informed them about the improvements being made to their school as part of Phase 1 ...

Reader supports Branham

The probate court handles estates, conservatorships and guardianships among other things, all of which are important because they affect the lives of people. When choosing the right candidate for the position of probate judge, we first should take into consideration the candidate's experience and knowledge of the job they are seeking. Debbie Branham is a paralegal with 20 years of experience, handling more than 1,000 probate and estate matters. She has been in the courtroom assisting an attorney in trial. She understands the law, the procedures of the court and the probate process. She has the experience and ...

Elgin town council member supports Burns

On Tuesday, Nov. 4, residents of Kershaw County will have the chance to cast their vote for chairman of Kershaw County Council. I am honored to announce that I am endorsing Julian Burns for this position. I have had the pleasure of getting to know Mr. Burns over the past few months, and one thing that I have come to admire about him is his desire to serve his community.
