‘Your hometown newspaper’

It’s been said, with some degree of accuracy, the newspaper business is dying. At the Chronicle-Independent we’re inclined to disagree with that, at least when it comes to this paper, and I’ll tell you why. Let me assure you, it’s not because it’s where we work and where our paychecks come from, although we do honestly appreciate it. It’s because we simply are the only source our readers have for the news that really matters to them on a local, personal level.

Gators, politicians and oil

As I write these words, I’m sitting on a rustic dock overlooking a beautiful, placid pond on a coastal South Carolina island. I’m surrounded by nothing but God’s creations and natural beauty.

Elgin’s spirit

Elgin is certainly not the same community that it was a few decades ago. The sleepy little crossroads that existed then has now become the primary growth area in Kershaw County, with housing developments having sprung up all over West Wateree. The area is populated not only with citizens who were born and raised in Kershaw County but many who have moved across the county line from neighboring Richland County, and others who have found their way there from throughout the United States.

Truett Cathy

Folks in Kershaw County were excited a year or so ago when Chick-fil-A opened a store between Camden and Lugoff. The fast-food restaurant is one of the favorite quick eateries in the United States, especially in the South, where fried chicken has been a staple for centuries. We note that Truett Cathy, the founder of the 1,800-outlet chain, died recently at the age of  93.

Noted and passed - Sept. 8, 2014

• On the opposite page, you will see a column from S.C. Press Association (SCPA) Executive Director Bill Rogers on how two Lowcountry school board members left a meeting early and another one decided to not attend at all because of what they felt was an improper and possibly illegal executive session to discuss proposals to renovate an old school into district offices. We applaud those Jasper County school board members as well. However, we are also concerned with other recent S.C. Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) violations. For example, and also from the Lowcountry: Beaufort City Council failed ...

Kershaw treasure

About two weeks ago, my son was married in Kershaw County. The Southern hospitality that was extended to our family was exceptional. I have been to weddings in many states and this location here was one of the best venues I have ever seen. The location was Rock Bottom Pond -- they have a great website (rockbottompondadventures.com) that shows what they have to offer. Instead of people going to Columbia, Florence or Charleston, spending their money in another county, I believe they would find it right here. George Speedy and his lovely wife, Donna, streamlined the process with Donna coordinating ...
