CHS band was a champion, too

At last Friday Night's tilt between Camden and Cheraw, I read with interest the eloquent narrative about Zemp Stadium contained in the game program. Quoting from the narrative's first paragraph, it read: "Zemp Stadium has been host to 7 State Championship teams during its long and illustrious history."

Readers and Viewers Beware! Separating fact from fiction sometimes requires reading between the lines and being educated about what is not reported!!!

Weeks dedicated to public service

Recently, our KershawHealth CEO, Donnie J. Weeks, announced his retirement. The last couple of years have not been an easy time for the healthcare industry as a whole.

County should find partner to manage KershawHealth

I would like to see the county look into the possibility of partnering with a proven healthcare system to administrate KershawHealth. This has been done successfully in many areas of the country. One that I am familiar with, having seen it develop when I was in diagnostic imaging sales, is Carolinas Health System (CHS), headquartered in Charlotte.

Pave rest of S.C. 34

After putting up with the inconvenience of the paving of four and a half miles of S.C. 34 in Lugoff, I see they are done. What about the remaining five and a half miles of S.C. 34 extending to the Fairfield County line? It is like night and day crossing the county line into Fairfield County.

Something to think about

To say, "I am an American" makes us all equal as citizens no matter from what country our ancestors came -- whether Ireland or Germany or Russia or Africa or any other place. It is good to know our heritage and be blessed by it; but when we become citizens of the United States of America, we become Americans. It should stand first in our allegiance and first in our identification. How can we stand together if we place another country first in identifying who we are? To do this is to separate ourselves from other Americans. Something to think about.

A grateful mother

To those kind folks in Camden who so generously paid tribute to "Jacky" James and for the generosity shown in giving generously toward a dog rescue in Chesapeake (City, Md., Paws for Life). I have been sent a photo of a lovely looking male dog which has been saved from death row and been adopted by some kind person.

Honoring a father

Please accept my heartfelt thanks and gratitude to all parties responsible for the placement of the Leaders Legacy bench in honor of my late father, Mr. James L. Anderson Sr. I was not able to be there due to an illness of long standing and an inability to travel. I have missed Camden and family members terribly and, again, state that I would have been with you as you honored my Dad.

The George Zimmerman not guilty verdict brought to mind two men: Pope Benedict XVI and Marcus Tullius Cicero (146-43 B.C.)

Renovate county pool

The recent letter concerning our recreation department pool was correct in many areas. However, I would like to contribute to the observations.

We depend on deputies

It happened again. Our sheriff, Jim Matthews, spoke before Kershaw County Council the evening of June 25. After witnessing the sheriff addressing council, I now believe the only thing left he can do is to get on his knees and beg. Throw his hands up. He has tried so hard, yet his deputies are underpaid and his department is understaffed.

Adopt a Highway

My family and I just went through one of the toughest moments any family will have to endure. We lost our mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, wife, aunt, sister and dear friend, Sandra Anderson, on May 6, 2013, to cancer. We as a family were devastated and wanted to do something to commemorate the passion and love she had for people and life. We decided to Adopt a Highway in her honor. We chose Elliott Hunter Road in Cassatt as our road of choice, since this was on the way to our Mom's house.

Turn old CMS into park

So after having to look at the old Camden Middle School (CMS) property on Laurens Street for a couple of years, it is finally torn down. At least two plans were brought forth to build upscale houses there and add to the neighborhood, but those ideas were shot down by the residents.

New swimming facilities needed

I am concerned about the future of the recreation facilities in Kershaw County. Much has been said and many things have been proposed. The county and the city must work together for a better Kershaw County.

It’s always a good time to say thank you

A few days ago I had the honor of attending a memorial service for Marlene Tolleson, a quiet servant at the Kershaw County Council on Aging. For more than 20 years, she worked tirelessly on behalf of those who needed her most, our seniors. An advocate, a counselor and sometimes firm encourager, the folks she served knew that they had a friend and advocate in Marlene.

If you live in Camden and do not realize how special a town it is, just wait until something goes wrong.

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.
