Teenage employment

Many teenagers are desperately seeking employment in these times. I joined them many years ago: in fact, I began work at age 11 and was furious when the "powers that be" decided every person under the age of sixteen had to have a doctor certify that the individual was not harming his health. I made the astronomical sum of a dollar a day at the dime store (98 cents when taxes were removed) and hated the thought of having to have the two dollar test to keep my job. My duties included everything from clerking to all types of housekeeping ...

'Curiouser'

Politics is often a curious creature, and few things have been "curiouser" than Kershaw County Council's decision to create a commission to explore alternatives for a penny sales tax to help the county's recreation program, and then do an abrupt about-face, terminating the measure.

Letters: Reader says Democrats ‘confessing’ torture is distraction

I'm sure everyone is abreast of all the hullaballoo over interrogation techniques used by the CIA to get information from the Guantanamo detainees to assist in avoiding another World Trade Center disaster. Dianne Feinstein, along with Obama and most of the congressional Democrats, insisted on "confessing," as they put it, despite the secretary of state urging against it, terming it detrimental to our interests and safety abroad. So, immediately, China and Korea termed us "bad boys," and why not -- didn't the current administration essentially say that?

Editorial: Police officers

With police behavior having been in the news recently because of incidents in which white officers killed unarmed black citizens, there has been much discussion -- rightfully so -- about whether some officers are acting recklessly. Racial profiling, of course, has been a part of this discussion, as it should be. It's interesting, then, that the U.S. Supreme Court handed down an opinion earlier this week giving some leeway to police who make "reasonable mistakes" in enforcing the law. Of course, reasonable mistakes don't include the right by officers to act without provocation or to use undue force. And ...
