The Camden Lions Club was chartered on Sept. 4, 1945. We have been fulfilling our motto of "We Serve" in Kershaw County for 70 years. To give you an idea of what we do, I am submitting the following information about our charitable services to the citizens of Kershaw County.

Letter: Problem with Arrants’ ‘cat problem’ column

In response to Josh Arrants' column, "The Impact of Cats," I was disappointed to read he calls cats "one of the worst ecological disasters I've ever seen." The study he referenced in his article by the Smithsonian Migratory Bird Center and U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has been questioned for its accuracy and reliability since it was first released.

Letter: Reader doesn’t like Mulvaney’s Planned Parenthood stance

One of our South Carolina "leaders" in the United States House of Representatives (Mick Mulvaney) is committed to shutting down the government in order to defund Planned Parenthood in spite of the fact that the organization does more than any other to prevent unwanted pregnancies (through education and counseling) and to help women and men and children who cannot afford health care otherwise. Mr. Mulvaney and 32 other Republicans are willing to shut down our government at huge expense to the tax payer -- while he and his colleagues in the House enjoy incredible health care at taxpayers' expense.

Letter: Councilman upset with Columbia newspaper

It seems that once again the trashing of our communities begins in earnest courtesy of The State newspaper sales circular, which is a fancy name for what amounts to a bunch of sales ads wrapped in a plastic bag and thrown from a passing vehicle. Once again, our citizens will be forced to clean up their own properties and county resources will be spent picking up the unclaimed litter that has made its way to our roadsides. Once again, our sheriff will have to pull deputies from their duties of protecting us from crime to respond to the flood of ...

Reader: ‘All lives matter’

Wouldn't you like to make a bank deposit in the amount of money it cost us taxpayers of Kershaw County to provide police escorts, including county, SLED (S.C. State Law Enforcement Division) and S.C. Highway Patrol for the "Black Lives Matter" walkathon? There were at least six county deputies with county cars, four state patrolmen with their highway patrol cars and a SLED vehicle I personally witnessed slowly proceeding on U.S. 1 Thursday, Aug. 27. I did not know a main highway could be commandeered and used as a walking path. As I drove very slowly ...

Reader: Labor Day a special time

Labor Day is a special time of year for this senior citizen Black American with 30-plus years as a union delegate and with the blessing of Father God, 25 years of company and union benefits. I now call my era in the labor force cashing the America Dream.

Councilman invites residents to hear bond alternative

A few weeks ago, on a 4-3 vote, county council approved first reading of a general obligation bond for economic development. The dollar amount of the bond was undecided. The shopping list the bond would cover could reach as high as $15 million. The bond issue appears to be on a fast track and gathering speed.

Letter: Reader praises PT group

I recently started to nominate a small group of employees at KershawHealth for a "Daisy" Award. I was stopped when I learned this prestigious award is only for individual nurses. Therefore, I decided to write a letter to the Chronicle-Independent to highlight this group's performance for our citizens.

Letter: Electric billing cycles

Regarding our high electric bills this month, Camden City Manager Mel Pearson is right in part in attributing increased costs to record high temperatures ("Summer weather heats up utility bills," Aug. 25, 2015). What Mr. Pearson does not mention, however, is that the billing period in question was unusually long (36 days). This was the longest billing period I have experienced in my seven years as a customer of Camden utilities. Even when temperatures do not reach record levels, we here in South Carolina expect it to be very hot in July. This being the case, it seems to me ...

School board chairman responds to FOIA column

I am writing this letter in response to your "Viewpoint" section editorial article entitled, "School board almost gets exec sessions right." I would like to believe that your intentions are the same as mine, and that is informing our good citizens of Kershaw County with prudent and factual information on all matters.

Letter: Veteran asks why dentists not part of Tricare plan

I would like to take the time to write and ask why only one dentist in Kershaw County is in the Dental Health Network Military Tricare Retiree Dental Provider Program which accepts military Tricare patients.

Reader wants stoplight at York and Mill streets

Since Bethune has won their fight for a stoplight at the intersection of U.S. 1 and Hwy. 341, maybe the same Kershaw County Legislative Delegation group can fight for the four flashing red lights which be left over and place them at the real needy four little old all-way stop signs at the truck route at the intersection of York and Mill streets in Camden.

Letter: Elgin resident wants trucks off her road

My husband and I live on a single lane dirt road, Rush Road, where two cars have to pull over for the other to get past each other. For the last several months, my husband contacted every official he could think of to call about dump trucks and semis using our road. Each time he'd call someone, they'd tell him to call some other office.

Letters: Morgan responds to education funding criticism

I always enjoy reading letters by Mr. Charlie Humphries about education. In his August 14 letter in the Chronicle-Independent, he discussed "bang for the buck" in terms of education spending.
