Letter: Don't fail to market to retirees

Two years ago, SmartAsset, a personal finance technology company headquartered in New York City that uses financial modeling to power advice on major financial decisions evaluated 10 South Carolina cities from Hilton Head to Aiken to Myrtle Beach in terms of the best recreational and social opportunities for retirees, and ranked Camden number one. This rating was before the stunning transformation of our City Arena and our fantastic tennis and pickleball complex (thank you, City Manager Mel Pearson and city council).

Letters: If you're not angry, you're not paying attention

If you are not angry yet, you are not paying attention. Or perhaps you didn't see the limited April news coverage that 97 percent of Republicans in the United States House of Representatives in Washington (including five of South Carolina's six male Republican Reps) voted slyly to steal Social Security's $2.9 trillion surplus.

Letter: Thank you for the plants and flowers

On behalf of the city of Camden, I'd like to gratefully acknowledge Shannon Littlefield of Littlefield's Garden Center for her creativity and generous contribution of flowers in two of the Broad Street planters at the corner of Broad and Clyburn streets. They are unique and beautiful!

Letter: Minor correction to fine coverage

Please accept my compliments for the extra fine work covering The Wall That Heals by the Chronicle-Independent. It was an overwhelming event for thousands, especially yours truly. I am of the opinion that historic correctness is essential for such events, and those of our city's storied past. With that said, I must report to your readers a minor error in your excellent front page story appearing in the Tuesday edition of the C-I.

Letter: Don’t let fear, greed rule ballot box

Edmund Wilson once said, "No two persons read the same book." It struck me that no two persons see the same news coverage. We look through the lens of our own experiences. Too many people see through fear of financial ruin and cannot bear to share with others. Others see through ill-gotten financial gain and cannot bear to see that sense of well-being diminished. Although I do not believe in the mantra, "Things used to be great" or that "our country is falling apart," I do fear that greed and drive for power have become more pervasive. We all love ...

Letter: Setting the record straight on Family Court

In reading and responding to Clint Doran's letter, which appeared in the Tuesday, May 1, 2018, edition of the Chronicle-Independent, I realize that I do not know Mr. Doran or the circumstances which prompted him to write the letter. I do know, however, that Mr. Doran's allegations are not true in most cases and we need to set the record straight.

Letter: 'The best interest of the child'

"The best interest of the child" is something you hear every day in Family Court. It has become a whipping post for judges and lawyers to justify their actions of separating a child from a loving and fit parent. At no point in most cases is any real evidence produced to justify their actions. The stakes in most cases isn't money or property (although they are treated as such), the stakes are the lives and rights of our children.

Exicted about The Wall That Heals

I am excited that The Wall That Heals is coming to Camden. I visited this exhibit in Feb. 2017 in Ft. Worth, Texas. I never thought it would be located here. It is difficult to imagine how this massive replica can be moved across the nation, to be set up in a different location each week. I have learned that the replica that will be in Camden is 50 percent larger than the one I saw in Texas.

Letter: What a simple phone call will reveal

After hearing all of the "noise" about the "Wateree River Park" (a tentative name -- not a permanent one) I decided to talk to several council members and attempt to get some facts regarding what's going on and what the plan is for the proposed park. Here are some things I found out from talking with county officials, council members and some of my own observations/research.

Letter: More parts to economic development

Your recent in-depth look at economic development in Kershaw County was an example of good research and reporting. However, two key elements were missing from your story -- disposal into the Wateree River and availability of an educated workforce.

Letter: Qualified superintendent candidates are right here

As the search for the superintendent continues, I hope the search committee will not overlook the qualified personnel that we have right in our own county, Kershaw. We have been blessed in the past with the hiring of good candidates from within the district and from out of our district. So, please, do not overlook the qualified personnel we already have in our county that are most definitely qualified for the job.
