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.

Sheriff doesn’t support firearms ordinance as proposed

I want to go on record by saying that I am opposed to the "firearms discharge" ordinance as it was originally introduced. However, I am in favor of one if it can be revised to better fit Kershaw County. I also want the public to know that I am pro-gun, pro-Second Amendment and a lifetime member of the National Rifle Association (NRA). As sheriff, I have approved hundreds, if not thousands, of concealed weapons permit applications. I am also an avid hunter and gun owner.

Reader thinks firearms ordinance response to 'select few'

Kershaw County Council is making an attempt by backdoor rulings to attempt to eliminate hunting by prohibiting discharge of firearms within 300 yards of a residence, church, or school. There are very few places where you can go and not be within 300 yards of a prohibited structure. The place I have set up is within 300 yards, but I am able to shoot away from the house. If I try to move 300 yards, I may not be able to use the same target, which is located away from the structure.

Dear Councilman Jimmy Jones, how out of touch are you with Kershaw County citizens to tell those who may disagree with you to go back to our bunkers?

This is the letter than should never have been written. It may accomplish nothing other than irritating some.

Reader: Thomley is sore loser

I arrived at my place of work at 4:10 a.m., June 16. Before opening my door and deactivating the security alarm, I read the Chronicle-Independent headline still in the paper rack: Thomley sues Matthews! What a way to start the week. What a sore loser! Is this a joke? Must be! Maybe this is Saturday Night Live.

‘I am one of them’

I am a Green Beret, albeit an older one. I haven't worn my "Green Sponge" in over 40 years. I am also a Camden resident. When it was announced that my fellow Special Forces Association soldiers would be visiting the Revolutionary War Park (on Thursday) I made certain I would be there. It was a bitter-sweet experience.

When I went to school

I grew up in North Augusta, a town of 2,000 people at that time. I attended elementary school and graduated from high school there. There were 34 graduates in my class of 1949. Bear with me for a moment through what may sound like boasting in order to make my point. Of the 34 of us came the following:

Reader: leaders must catch up with 21st century

Recently, the United States Supreme Court saved the Affordable Care Act for generations to come. Many conservatives and the GOP seemed woefully ignorant of our healthcare system.

A big thank you to Max Ford's letter dated July 1. It was a great history lesson for me.

Reader wants ‘fair and balanced reporting’

During the open meetings of all of our public bodies, there is provided a period for public comments. This period is part of the meeting agenda and is, presumably, included in the meeting's minutes. Therefore, these comments become part of the public record. This period is set aside for anyone wanting to speak about matters of concern, as long as the comments are about public issues (not to include the promotion of a private business and not about personal issues). Although the public comment period is not a period of debate, it provides private citizens an opportunity to let ...

Reader, wife support removing Confederate battle flag

Several years ago, my wife and I, along with our youngest son, his wife and their children, attended a Fourth of July celebration in Bath, Maine. Bath is a picturesque little city which only Maine seems capable of providing. It is also a seafaring town, home to the Bath Iron Works, where ships have slid down the ways for close to 200 years.

Reader: take advantage of 'living history'

I was browsing the internet looking at different sites listing historical events of the past 100 years and was surprised to see how much of history had been left off. So many events which have taken place during the past century which have been instrumental in the growth of this country have been left out of our history books and articles of today.
