Letters

  • Council does support sheriff's department

    To the Editor:
    On Dec. 1, 2014, I listed as Chester County Sheriff Underwood told the Chester County Council that they are not supportive of the Sheriff's Department with regard to his need for additional personnel. I have since then heard a great deal of additional rhetoric that has not been supported by fact. Because of that, I have written this letter to give a factual basis to this issue.

  • Elections Board mishandled election

    To the Editor:
    I hope all the registered voters of Chester County are aware that we achieved a signal victory Monday morning at the S.C. Election Commission hearing of the appeals of the Chester County Board of Elections' earlier decision allowing the recent election to stand.
    Although Rev. Bill Stringfellow's appeal was denied, Shane Stuart's appeal was granted, and a new election for county supervisor has been ordered.

  • County does have money

    To the Editor:
     

  • Thanks to the rescue squad

    To the Editor,

  • Friends of the animals says thanks

    To the Editor:
    Friends of the Animals (FOTA) has experienced a wonderfully successful summer 2014. This achievement can be directly attributed to the generosity of the citizens of Chester County.  

  • Volunteers, donations for Jordan Diggs

    To the Editor:
    My daughter, Jordan Diggs, is in need of a kidney transplant. When she was four years old, she was diagnosed with fibromuscular dysplasia, or FMD, of the arteries going into her kidneys. This caused extremely high blood pressure, which has led to chronic kidney disease.
    Right now, Jordan is at stage three kidney disease and has been listed on the "inactive" list for a kidney transplant. As long as her labs stay stable she will not be listed as "active."

  • Children's Attention Home thanks Lutz Foundation

    To the Editor:
    The Chester-based Clarence H. and Anna Elizabeth Lutz Foundation has provided much-needed and welcomed support to the Children's Attention Home through the years worthy of recognition by the home and the community.

  • Chester needs a teen center

    To the Editor:
    Having read over the county government's wish list and how they plan on spending $15 million in bond money I felt I should write this. The government is wanting to spend millions on ballfields and constructing and installing lighting on existing ballfields.

  • Chester needs a new high school

    To the Editor:
    Today while reading your article on the sales tax wish list, as a citizen of Chester County, I don't see a problem with paying the penny tax. I do, however, mind about how it is to be used.
    Streetscaping $65,000, refurbish city Activity Center $125,000, renovation of parks $30,000. Are they used that much to spend that much money to renovate?

  • Loss of child is unimaginable

    To the Editor:

    On July 25, 2014, my life took a drastic change for the worse. My 14-year-old son, Jeramie Wayne Coleman, was called home by his Lord and Savior. He was swimming with family and friends on a lazy summer day when events took a turn for the worse.
