Phillips: A Merry Christmas to all

I am a big believer in everyone’s right to think and feel however they choose to. It’s really what makes us all American and, to make it even broader, it’s what makes us all human. If I don’t happen to agree with your point of view, I still respect your right to have that point of view.

Camden Archives and Museum celebrates its centennial

Camden Archives and Museum celebrates its centennial

 

One hundred years ago, in 1915, 1314 Broad St. was a construction site. Excavators and bricklayers, carpenters and heating contractors were busy at their task of building Camden’s first city library. It had been an arduous journey getting to that point. That journey began in 1914, as best we can reckon, at a lecture to the Kershaw County Teachers Institute. In all of the factors leading up to the acquisition and completion of the Camden Public Library there is one constant: Sarah “Sadie” Kennedy Von Tresckow.

Owens: Year in review

 

To say that 2014 has had its ups and downs would be an understatement. Honestly, I don’t know what words or phrases I would use to describe how my 2014 played out. It wasn’t the worst year ever, but it definitely wasn’t the greatest.

Noble: It all started with BBQ

Recently, I had lunch with three old friends. All of us are proud South Carolina natives, amateur history buffs and great fans of barbecue (BBQ). We decided to meet at a new BBQ joint that we were all anxious to try.

Editorial: Court decisions

Two prominent decisions in South Carolina courts this week have been just and fair -- exactly the way most people would like to see the legal system work. The first was a decision by Circuit Court Judge Carmen Mullen to overturn the 1944 conviction of a 14-year-old boy who was sent to the electric chair back in the Jim Crow days of this state for the murder of two girls.

Editorial: Police officers

 

With police behavior having been in the news recently because of incidents in which white officers killed unarmed black citizens, there has been much discussion -- rightfully so -- about whether some officers are acting recklessly. Racial profiling, of course, has been a part of this discussion, as it should be. It’s interesting, then, that the U.S. Supreme Court handed down an opinion earlier this week giving some leeway to police who make “reasonable mistakes” in enforcing the law. Of course, reasonable mistakes don’t include the right by officers to act without provocation or to use undue force. And ...

Noted and passed - Dec. 15, 2014

• A tip of the C-I hat to Kershaw County Deputy Fred Tiah, a school resource officer at Stover Middle School in Elgin. Tiah, as we reported Friday, is from Liberia, one of the hardest-hit countries in this year’s Ebola crisis. Recognizing he has been welcomed to and is finding success in America, Tiah says he wants to help children in his native country who have been orphaned by the deadly disease. He’s put his idea into action, raising money to help pay for the children’s education and medical supplies. Tiah also wants to be a role model ...

Letters: Reader proud of vets, kids, county council

Anytime we, as a county, can truly honor something or someone, a warm feeling can overcome you. This is good. This experience happened Dec. 9, the final (regular) Kershaw County Council meeting of 2014. One had to be there to witness this “proud of you” feeling obviously everyone certainly felt.

Letters: Reader says Democrats ‘confessing’ torture is distraction

I’m sure everyone is abreast of all the hullaballoo over interrogation techniques used by the CIA to get information from the Guantanamo detainees to assist in avoiding another World Trade Center disaster. Dianne Feinstein, along with Obama and most of the congressional Democrats, insisted on “confessing,” as they put it, despite the secretary of state urging against it, terming it detrimental to our interests and safety abroad. So, immediately, China and Korea termed us “bad boys,” and why not -- didn’t the current administration essentially say that?

Letter: Reader appreciates Tucker follow-up story

 

I applaud the Chronicle-Independent for front page coverage of the dropping of charges against Mr. Sammie Tucker. All too often, especially in larger media markets, good news is relegated to the back pages, while sensational news makes the front page. I believe our community newspaper makes a concerted effort to report the news as it happens and, more importantly, reports good news.
