Karesh Wing

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!

Protecting our schools

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 ...

Power of the Ballot Box

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 ...

Join American Cancer Society study

It's often far too easy to underestimate the importance of cancer research … until you hear the words "you have cancer."

Unemployment

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.

Miller Orchestra still going strong

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.

Pondering...

As a senior citizen I ponder a lot. It seems the older I get the more pondering I do. I watch the news, read a book or two, read the papers, read my Bible, and here are some things that cross my mind.

Carolina and Clemson football

The college football season is over and many football widows are excited about that. Now on Saturdays the honey-do list may get a little more attention. For Carolina and Clemson fans, it's been a great season. Both teams were 11-2, won exciting dramatic bowl games and were ranked in the top 10 nationally in the final coaches' poll.

Moral and spiritual death

Once again we are faced with a horrible massacre at a school. This time it was a Connecticut elementary school. As frustrating to every American as they are devastating to those immediately involved, my prayers are with those suffering beyond my imagination.

Thanks for support

On Friday, January 11, 2013, my brother, Dewitt Peake, was driving to work when he was killed in a collision with a car.

Saddened by all of us

I never failed to get excited after coming home from my travels and seeing the Kershaw County line sign as I'm heading towards home. I have such fond memories of growing up here, being in elementary school in Pine Tree Hill and waiting for the Christmas parade on Broad Street, visiting the Kershaw County Library and being read to by the librarians there, playing tennis at Rectory Square and Hampton Park, swimming, boating and skiing at Lake Wateree, running at Scott Park, eating a burger at BSL or Little Midget or, if you're old enough to remember, even ...

Reader ‘pleased’ with Amtrak plan

Having spent many hours working to get the historic Seaboard Railroad station preserved, I was extremely pleased to see that Amtrak was at the city council work session June 22 to present its plan for improvements to the station.

Rhame Arena concept

During the last Camden City Council work session, and as reported in the July 28 Chronicle-Independent, the concept of "adaptive reuse" of Rhame Arena was discussed. It was during this discussion that it was noted that the concept and sketch under discussion was developed by the daughter of Marti Wallace and Mike Jones (Elizabeth Ancrum Jones). Miss Jones developed her proposal several years ago. After a discussion of the property during a prior council meeting, her work was provided to city staff for their consideration.

2014 TripAdvisor awards

It is always exciting to read positive press in the Chronicle-Independent concerning businesses in our area. Sam Kendall's 2014 Certificate of Excellence Award was wonderfully covered by the C-I for its hard-earned recognition. Each year, TripAdvisor assesses local businesses worldwide and awards certificates to those with very high ratings. For 2014, they awarded three Certificates of Excellence in Camden to Sam Kendall's, Salud! Mexican Kitchen, and Bloomsbury Inn. In addition, their highest recognition, Traveler's Choice Awards, honors like businesses nationwide. As the C-I well-covered earlier in the year, Bloomsbury was a Traveler's Choice Award winner for ...
