Auxiliary president: King inspired community volunteering

Martin Luther King Jr. was an American icon whose legacy many of us choose to honor by volunteering in our communities. King was a man who taught the world that passivity does not make a better community -- active, concerned citizens are the ones to enact change.

Reader remembers MLK Jr.’s ‘deferred dream’ sermon

Martin Luther King Jr. Day was established as a U.S. federal holiday in 1986. Americans should honor the legacy of Dr. King by enacting policies which can narrow the condition of humanity and the working class division and bring opportunity for all to prosper in America.

Readers: ‘And so it begins’ at KershawHealth

About a year ago, we were desperately seeking information about how the proposed Kershaw Health merger with Capella and MUSC was progressing and what would be the impacts on the community and on health care within the hospital's service area. The first that the public actually knew about this pending transaction was from a Chronicle-Independent article published in October 2014.

‘Beechwood not the place for massive development’

In spring and early summer, I attended two city of Camden public hearings regarding the request by Ed Royall and Austin Sheheen on behalf of the owner of Beechwood for approval of a 254-unit "retirement" development on the 65-acre parcel at 100 Knights Hill Road. At both meetings, the first before the planning commission on May 19 and the second before city council on June 9, there was public opposition expressed by many regarding the housing density of the development plan which had the appearance of a subdivision rather than a retirement village.

Reader believes Beechwood plans are veering off track

After the Planning Commission and City Council's public hearings this past Spring I went on record supporting the development of the Beechwood property as a true continuous care retirement community, but also questioned whether or not potential developers would present a plan suitable for that purpose.

Basketball Tournament a great success

I want to express my thanks and appreciation for the tremendous community support of the Mid-Carolina Kershaw County Holiday Classic basketball tournament. It was particularly special to be able to hold the tournament in the newly renovated (Rhame) City Arena. I hope that this tournament will again become a community holiday season tradition. I also hope that our district can continue to collaborate with the community to bring other invitational athletic events to Kershaw County.

Minister ‘shocked and insulted’ by Noble column

Allow me to introduce myself. I am the Reverend John L. Hallman III, the minister at Bethesda Presbyterian Church here in Camden. I am writing in response to Mr. Phil Noble's editorial entitled "Ban the Presbyterians," which appeared in the 18 December, 2015 issue of the Camden Chronicle-Independent. To say that I was shocked and insulted by this article would be an understatement. While I understand that Mr. Noble's piece was a parody of Donald Trump's political speech calling for a ban on Muslims, I also know that there are those in your reading audience who may ...

Executive director thanks Historic Camden founders

Four score plus five years ago, the vista which is now Historic Camden Revolutionary War Site was quite different. The secrets of 18th century Camden located south of Bull Street were blanketed by cotton fields and the city dump adorned the ridge of Magazine Hill.
