Member of the Year

Great things are accomplished one task at a time by one American Legion Auxiliary member at a time: one offer of help to the wife of a deployed serviceman; one volunteer assisting with a community blood drive; one friendly invitation to another woman to join the Auxiliary. The efforts of our members add up to millions of hours and millions of dollars annually in service of the Auxiliary's mission. Those members whose extraordinary dedication energizes their units -- and thereby the organization as a whole -- are honored with the Unit Member of the Year Award.

Weeding out phony warriors

Bragging about military honors you didn't receive is despicable yet still constitutional, says the Supreme Court. I agree. But help is on the way for those who want to weed out the fakers, if Congress can put aside its own battles long enough.

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.

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.
