Letter: Use KH FILOT funds for school safety

With the start of a new school year, the topic of school safety has again come to the forefront in our community, in our state and across the nation.

Letter: Fairfield Electric Cooperative committed to transparency

I am extremely interested in economic development and the furtherance of economic development in Kershaw County for revenue and jobs. One essential component of economic development is providing affordable utilities for residential, commercial and industrial. A major utility provider in Kershaw County is Fairfield Electric Cooperative.

Letter: Labor Day is a special time of year

Labor Day is a special time of year for this former union worker that made my working and retirement years with Jesus, the Messiah, name above all names blessings over and beyond my dreams.

Letter: Eating an elephant

The issue is how to eat the elephant. Conventional wisdom has it you do so one bite at a time.

Letter: Difficulty reaching across the aisle

On Aug. 8, I joined my South Carolina 5th District telephone town hall to engage with my Washington House of Representatives congressman, Ralph Norman. I pressed the button early on to ask a question. I was not called upon. Perhaps there were simply too many concerned citizens. Perhaps his helpers know of my differences with him because of my many telephone calls to his office regarding my concerns or my letters to the local papers. Regardless, I wish to ask Mr. Norman my questions. The town hall topic was how to deal with violence in the schools. He had on ...

Letter: Tired of whining news media

It seems that some editorial writers do not like the fact that Trump will tell it like it is about the news media. They have been after him since he had the nerve to win the election. The fact that we, "the deplorables," did not even listen to them and vote like they were telling us to do galls them even more.

Letter: Questions for House District 52 candidates

It is an extremely positive reflection on our community that we have two very qualified and purposeful candidates for the House District 52 seat in the South Carolina General Assembly. Contested races give voters a choice and promote healthy discussion and debate about the issues that impact our community.

Letter: Dollar General rezoning puts county at crossroads

At its meeting on August 14, Kershaw County Council (KCC) will vote on whether to rezone 10 acres at the intersection of Longtown Road and Wateree Dam Road. The rezoning request has come from Dollar General so it can build a store at this location. So far, after 2 readings, KCC has voted 6 to 1 (the councilman from the district, Al Bozard, is against) in favor of this request. For the reasons expressed, this rezoning would be a mistake.

Letter: Congrats to All-America City crew

More than 10 years ago, we, as mayor of Camden and executive director of the Kershaw County Chamber of Commerce, tried to develop support and interest in pursuing All-America City status for Camden or for Kershaw County. We failed completely! We could not generate the support for the tremendous effort from many people this would require.

Letter: Grant program could be excellent opportunity

I have learned that the federal government now has grant opportunities to address school safety. One of these grants, a COPS school safety grant, is due on July 30, although I'm sure there will be other grant opportunities.

Letter: 29020 -- A construction zone?

What with all of the orange safety cones, drums and netting which proliferates throughout Camden, our city resembles one gigantic construction zone and will become more so as "improvement projects" continue. It seems that the S.C. Dept. of Transportation digs one hole, then moves on to dig another hole without completing the first hole. Witness the supposed truck route or truck improvement route that was begun several years ago along Springdale Drive and Boykin Road. That project was reportedly to be completed several years ago. I witnessed contractor after contractor move piles of dirt around and tear up pavement ...

Letter: U.S. holds protestant work ethic close

Recently, the United States Labor Chief stressed training during a visit to the Boeing plant in South Carolina. He stressed training to highlight a new President Trump administration commitment to workforce development.

Letter: Who is responsible?

I would like to know who is responsible for the digging up of the front yards of hard working people. We try to keep our yards looking presentable by cutting the grass and picking up the litter.

Letter: What about the ad hoc committee recommendations?

Last fall, county council authorized the formation of an ad hoc committee, which included representation from council, the school board, the business community, the city of Camden, and the towns of Elgin and Bethune. The committee, which was very ably chaired by Mr. Sammie Tucker from county council and Mr. Todd McDonald from the school board, was initially charged with developing recommendations for council concerning funding for enrollment growth and for school resource officers (SROs).
