S.C. ranks near bottom again

South Carolinians shouldn't be surprised to see the state rank poorly in yet another survey. It seems the Palmetto State is forever being relegated to the bottom tier in all kinds of indicators. Some of them, of course, don't have much validity. But the latest one, in which only five states are ranked lower than South Carolina in susceptibility to political corruption, is particularly unnerving because it's one that could be avoided with a modicum of care from legislators.

C-I in step with mainstream media

As with much of the mainstream media, your edition March 9 is a poster child for what is wrong with the mainstream media and possibly a plausible explanation as to why printed media has fallen onto hard times. A previous editorial by Martin Cahn wherein he rather pompously pronounced that his opinion -- he is a journalist whatever that is -- is vastly superior to the great unwashed's opinion. A fair presumption would be those that are not "journalists."

Ariail for September 1, 2014

September 01, 2014 | | Ariail


Noted and passed - Sept. 1, 2014

The jury found Starnes guilty of deliberately using his vehicle a year ago to knock Alan Thomas Robinson, 67, also of Bethune, off his moped, stealing and loading that moped onto his vehicle and then turning around and running Robinson over. Robinson died the next day. Starnes is then accused of selling the moped for money he used to buy drugs. In fact, Starnes was under the influence of drugs ...

A while back, a messy problem loomed ahead. I don't like confrontation. If that makes me less than a person then consider me to be itty bitty. Life, I figure, is too short for squabbling. My motto is "whenever possible, step out of the way."
