Letter to the Editor

  To all the folks who get a City of Clinton utility bill. Stop complaining and do something about it. The City of Clinton gets over 75% of its income for 2018 from utility billings; the City of Clinton has not increased property taxes enough over the years to pay for its operations so we pay for...
  Two hundred-thirty seven years ago, a special event on the road to American independence from Great Britain occurred at Edward Musgrove’s mill. This special event occurred shortly after a most disastrous event occurred at Camden, SC.   At the direction of Patriot General William McDowell,...
  Reference the Kitch Remembers article on yard brooms in the August 2 edition of the Chronicle: I got quite a chuckle out of this and wanted to comment on my experience with the brooms. Growing up at Thornwell in the early 50's, I got to put these brooms to good use, but we referred to them as "...
  The editor, I would like to thank The Chronicle for printing  my views about the district 55 school bond  referendum. I think it is necessary to clean up some of the messages that are coming from the school district.   In a recent article, The Clinton Chronicle reported that at a  LCDC meeting Dr...
  The editor: I found Vic MacDonald’s editorial and Rob Hicklin’s letter to the editor disturbing because neither stated the facts about council’s decision not to rezone property on Hwy 72. Council was led to believe there is a developer ready to build houses on property owned by Mr. Hicklin. What...
  The editor: I would like to take this opportunity to publicly thank a few people who helped make our recent fireworks display at Victory Worship Center possible. Unbeknownst to almost everyone, there is a state law that requires any public fireworks display to have a licensed shooter as well as a...
  The Editor: The article in the 05 July 17 paper concerning the 48% increase in water costs to the LCWSD needs a follow up since the LCWSD is not being singled out to cover the cost of the electricity. What is this going to do to the costs to students at PC or to the industrial base in town since...
  The editor - Drug overdose is now the leading cause of accidental death in the United States. In 2014, it surpassed both car accidents and gun violence in number of deaths. Those with loved ones who are using opiates or heroin need to be aware that opiates are the main contributors to this...
The editor: Yes, there was a “Hearing in Columbia – Again” before the SC Supreme Court regarding the trial and conviction of Michael Beaty. The State filed a Petition for Rehearing with the Clerk of the SC Supreme Court 01/13/2017.  Michael Beaty’s attorneys also filed a Petition for Rehearing.  ...
  The editor:  The City needs to be more effective in managing the interests of the City. It can easily make many proclamations and select a flag, but cannot seem to get new industry here.  The City should have followed the Zoning Commission and Development Directors suggestions last week to zone...
