The kings and queens who rule over the education of our children and spend 42 cents of every dollar they receive on them are building a new and wonderful palace. Their kingdom is vast as they are the largest employer in all of Kershaw County. They purchase property across this land, sometimes at higher than market value. The kings and queens lay off teachers first while keeping the palace staff; after all, they must ...

Dear Annie: My wife and I are in our mid-60s. For most of our lives, we have done pretty well, but lately we’ve had financial difficulties because our incomes have been significantly decreased while our debt has not. My health is failing, and I don’t know how much longer I can continue to work.
"You want to do what?" I said. Although I asked the question, I fully understood what the boy had just asked. He is my son, after all, and since he has not yet reached high school, we still speak the same language although the dialect is becoming more and more, let's say, strained. His question was short and to the point and he knew I understood, but asked again anyway with perfect clarity: ...

Any noise nuisance noise cases should be handled on an individual basis, ...
"We are Camden, a place surrounded by history. Long a home of Native Americans, we were founded not long after Carolina was separated into North and South. Here, King Haigler, the Catawba chief, worked for peace among natives and colonists along the banks of the Wateree. Here, Patriots suffered one of the worst defeats in the Revolutionary War.

One of the many problems in politics today is that many elected officials begin to believe they are smarter than the electorate and feel they should be able to make decisions that contravene public attitudes. They justify this, of course, in a myriad of ways. The recent resignation of a Colorado state senator is the ultimate in arrogance when it comes to ignoring the voters and trying to circumvent ...
