Governor doesn’t care about working class

Recently, our Republican governor, Nikki Haley, stated she will reach out to Boeing to have its 777X jet built in South Carolina. The governor is just blowing smoke, and she now realizes her time is about running out. She cares nothing about the working class and labor unions.

Positive signs

I went to Scott Park for a walk last week and was pleasantly surprised to find the road into the park and the parking near the tennis courts had been repaired. As I walked around the park, I noticed evidence that other maintenance and repairs are in progress. With great hope I went over to Legion Field and found the road into the park and the parking lot there had been repaired. There also was evidence of other maintenance in progress. It should be noted that these areas are city property with county oversight for operation.

Lions Club says ‘thanks’

The Camden Lions Club would like to thank the citizens of Kershaw County for their support of our recent Candy Days fundraiser. This is our annual event to raise funds for sight conservation and other club projects. Because of the generous contributions of our community, we are able to help 100 to 150 people each year who need help with eye exams, purchasing glasses and other health services provided by the Lions Club.

Thanks for cars, too

The S.C. Foster Parent Association (SCFPA) would like to thank everyone who donated vehicles to its On the Road Again program. This program provides transportation for foster youth who are 18, but not yet 21, actively employed and pursuing a GED or post-high school educational program. Without a vehicle, young people must rely on public transportation to get them to and from work or school. Unfortunately, public transportation is not available in many rural areas of South Carolina.

Wise should never retire

It is good to see letters of appreciation in our local newspaper. This is one that, in my opinion, should have already been written.

Common Core equals government control

I found it interesting to learn from Dr. Frank Morgan's column of 10/21/13 that he sees it as ranting, sensationalistic and over the top to question the Common Core standards. After reading the article, I feel as though Dr. Morgan sees you as ridiculous and misguided if you don't believe these standards to be good for your local school district.

Farber responds

It seems someone or someones at the Chronicle has a long-standing irritating hair across their bottom(s) when it comes to the lawsuit against the "Y" and it has made them malicious.

Finding good in the bad times

Since Labor Day, my mother has been at KershawHealth. At 3 a.m. September 2, I received a call from Morningside Assisted Living that my mother had fallen and possibly broken her hip. I met and followed the ambulance to KershawHealth, so my first interaction in this journey that has lasted six weeks now, was with the KershawHealth EMT who transported her to the KH emergency room. The ER doctor, nurses and support staff were nothing less than incredible. Within minutes we saw that it was not a broken hip as suspected, but rather a stroke in progress. Within an ...

Against the Common Core

A recent editorial featured local school district leadership touting the benefits of the new Common Core Standards. I offer the opposing argument, all of which can be verified by visiting www.scpie.org. Furthermore, I offer solutions for South Carolina's failing education system.

Thanks for support

I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who attended and those who so generously supported the 1920s "Wolf's Lair" Speakeasy in Camden in early September. I know money is very precious to a lot of people today, and to spend your hard-earned money by attending the event means a lot. I know profit margins for businesses are small and for you take your money from your sales to support this event also means a lot. My only way to give back my appreciation is to have given you the best performance RAH Productions could give.

Enemies of the working class

There are 16 states refusing the Affordable Care Act, and many (of these) states are former Confederacy slave states with poor economic stability and controlled by Republican governors and Republican state legislatures.

Replace recreation office

As a long-time citizen of Kershaw County, I am embarrassed by the condition of our recreation department office. The present condition is one of stained and sagging overhead tiles in the ceiling, years of built-up grime, carpet pieces (replaced due to water damage) which overlap causing a tripping problem, etc. I would not be surprised if there is not also a mold problem. I have spoken to some people who state they do not attend the recreation center because it agitates their breathing. I would question whether or not all the members of county council have visited this center in ...

Open up to possibilities

It's time for us to expand our mindsets about the political situation in Washington. In a recent New York Times article, Russ Douthat said that politics is hard business and failure is normal enough, but that sensible people, "Republicans included," should have seen that shut down fever would blow up in the Party's face. Why? Because they had no method in place to deal with what could arguably be seen as basically a worthy objective.

Local, but honest, smart hospital

I read a letter Wednesday from an Elgin resident in favor of KershawHealth staying local and not being purchased by a Charlotte-based company. I agree it would be best to have a local hospital, but her last statement "the KershawHealth system needs to stay exactly as it is" shows many people still don't know how much money they have squandered on upper management salaries and unnecessary property investments. A local hospital is good, but an honest and smart local hospital is better.

‘Equine’ part of marketing equation

Having been involved in the equine activities in Camden since 1952, I read with great interest and disappointment Martin Cahn's article on the front page of the Sept. 20 Chronicle-Independent entitled "Arnett Muldrow Kickoff." The article covered a meeting of Camden citizens and the representatives of the marketing company that has been hired by the city to market Camden. I am extremely enthusiastic about the project. It is something Camden has needed for a long time. My disappointment: only once did the words horse, equine or equestrian appear in connection with Camden.

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.

Reader thankful for surgeons

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.
