Since I am more connected to local government, I decided to do a little research to see how we compare to our neighbors. Set out below is what I discovered. If you study these numbers, as I have, I think you will be pleasantly surprised.

Political economics

Mitt Romney's selection of Paul Ryan as his running mate will turn the presidential campaign into one centered around economic policy, though Democrats will certainly try to make it about social issues. We hope it will stimulate serious discussion about this country's spiraling deficit and the unsustainability of the economy if the United States doesn't get a handle on its debt. Of course, how to reduce that debt is framed in different ways by the two parties, and so far there has been little effort by either to try to come to compromise. Democrats insist that taxing ...

Editorial: An eyesore

In the most recent installment of our "Is Kershaw County being left behind?" series of articles on economic development, we looked at some non-industrial pieces of the puzzle. One highly visible sign of economic health in a community -- successful or poor -- is the number of active storefronts, whether individual buildings or as part of shopping centers.

Editorial: Social Security

Lawmakers in Washington have long ignored the fact that the Social Security system in this country is broken. On the brink of insolvency, Social Security needs major revamping, whether it comes in the form of benefit reductions, tax increases or both. Congress has refused to consider benefit cuts decades out in the future, even for young adults who are just now starting to pay into the system. They are turning their backs on such simple fixes as delaying the age by a year or two at which people can start receiving their monthly allotments. Bear in mind, we aren't ...
