After the recent passing of our Dad, we were escorted by the Camden Police Department from the city limits to Malvern Hill Baptist Church. Many in the procession following the '73 Ford Pick-up which carried our Dad's casket were moved by the real class displayed by each officer along the route. I hope those involved will accept our sincere thanks for our safe passage and their respect. We hope the county will go back to providing the same honor for safe passage at this difficult time for a family.
In the Friday edition of the Chronicle-Independent, there was an article that touched on county funding of the adaptive reuses restoration project of the McCaa House underway by Historic Camden that incorrectly stated the County has provided $21,500 for this project. The County has generously supplied $41,500 for this initiative.
I am a Kershaw County taxpayer, living on a fixed income. My Escrow/mortgage payment went up this year to cover for 2012 and 2013 portion of the solid waste fee, charged to county residents to dispose of solid waste, 2012 was the first year this extra $55 was added to Kershaw property taxes.
Thank you, Mayor Tony Scully, for your "Downtown" column in last week's newspaper. It was informative to read about several projects, activities, and issues being explored by our city. We would encourage you to continue keeping all of us aware of topics like these. And please include your contact information should any of us wish to participate in the dialogue. Again, thanks!
In reply to the letter on open carry, it is true that many persons do not apply for a permit because it is a form of registration. The government may not know what type of firearm you have, but they will know, unless you used a borrowed firearm to take a class, that you have a firearm. Many do not want to go through the hassle of reapplying every few years for a permit. At the start of the current shall-issue law instead of the old may-issue law, the anti-gun members in the legislature wanted to make it as inconvenient ...
After giving much thought to the article "Jones targets KershawHealth at Tuesday KCC meeting" in the February 15, 2013, edition of the Chronicle-Independent, remaining silent is no longer an option. The fact that Mr. Jones voted to approve the purchase of two ambulances for KershawHealth is overshadowed by his deplorable attack on the administration and members of the KershawHealth Board of Trustees.
The board of the Community Medical Clinic (CMC) of Kershaw County congratulates KershawHealth for 100 years of service. The strong healthcare presence can be seen throughout the community in the facilities, services and medical staff, as well as the support of organizations, which includes the Community Medical Clinic.
Congratulations to Coach Ammons for being selected to be in the SC Athletic Hall Of Fame!
I would like to publically thank the staff of the Karesh Wing for its excellent service, Christ-like love, compassion and care shown to my husband, my family and me. Also, even after my husband's death, the love and compassion continues. I am truly overwhelmed with their love!
Yes, there are crazies walking among us, even in the U.S. government, but I ask you to keep things in perspective. They are not standing on every street corner with assault weapons waiting to slaughter school children. As sad as the Sandy Hook situation was, and as much as we all would like to undo that travesty, it is a very, very rare occurrence. And for those of you who would say "if your child was involved you would not see it that way," you are right. I would be thinking emotionally, not logically. But realistically, how many reading ...
I appreciated your thoughtful and instructive commentary in the February 25, 2013, issue of the Chronicle-Independent regarding the "Citizens United" situation. It is important for those of us who are struggling to pay our bills and to provide the necessary health insurance for our families to understand the consequences of the new attempts to help rig the democratic process in favor of those who can (because of their wealth) buy elections. The conservative activist, Shawn McCutcheon from Alabama, with the support of the Republican National Committee, is challenging how much individuals can contribute to candidates, parties and even to Political ...
It's often far too easy to underestimate the importance of cancer research … until you hear the words "you have cancer."
Recently, unemployment rates for African-American communities rose. History has taught us where there is high unemployment, the community will be unstable and the standard of living relative to other communities is going to decline and the prison rate will rise.
Reading your article recently about Paul Tanner it appears from your last paragraph that you think the Glenn Miller Orchestra is no more. To the contrary. It is still the number one big band in the world. They travel worldwide. They were recently in Asheville N.C. at the Grove Park Inn's "Big Band Weekend" along with the Tommy Dorsey Band. Nick Hilscher is the current Director. Nick is from Atlanta, Georgia.
Re: The letter from Geraldine Stanley (Pondering) dated 15 February 2013. I would like to say "Thank You" for taking the time to write that letter.
On behalf of the Tour de Camden bicycle ride I would like to thank the Camden City Police and the Kershaw County Sheriff's Department. On Saturday April 12, 2014 we held the Tour de Camden with the ride beginning en masse from Historic Camden. We had about 150 riders of all levels of ability.
The road diet -- what a mistake. Even the mayor admits it could be a mistake. When the mayor was running for office he led me to believe that he was against the Broad Street diet. Two years later, he has flipped his opinion about the diet project. The mayor's vote, along with two of the previous council members, is what placed this mistake in motion. The urgency for the vote was to apply for a grant. A grant is federal tax dollars and not free money as some believe. This type of attitude is one of the reasons our ...
