Noted and passed

• We're glad to see that Pee Dee native Cale Yarborough has been voted into the NASCAR Hall of Fame. Yarborough and his hard-driving style helped popularize auto racing decades ago, and back in those days, when drivers were often former moonshine runners, he was also pretty good with his fists. His brouhaha with Bobby and Donnie Allison is still the stuff of legends. Yarborough, short in statue but tall in skill, is a deserving member of the Hall of Fame.

County council salary increases

A the Kershaw County Council meeting Tuesday, June 14, Sammie Tucker – who represents the Charlotte Thompson precinct in which I reside -- made a motion to "adjust" council's salaries from $10,000 to $13,000 a year. It included "adjusting" the vice chairman's salary (his own position) from $11,000 to $15,000 a year. Do the math – that amounts to a 30 percent increase in salary, plus benefits. The motion passed by a 4-3 margin. The three opponents were Stephen Smoak, Jimmy Jones and Chairman Gene Wise. These three members considered the citizens' pocketbooks more than their own.

Remembering the trains

"Down in the valley, the valley so low, for late in the evening hear the train blow." Who of the pre-World War II generation does not remember that old folk song or sang it? And who of that generation does not remember the plaintive wailing of a distant train whistle? Those are a few of the nostalgic memories most of my generation have as we look back on the bygone times when trains and railroads played a much more prominent role in our lives.

A case for Zemp

I never played high school football. My glory days ended with the little league Lions and the gridiron of my youth is now a stand of depressingly mature pine trees across the old, worn foot bridge in Woodward Park. Like many, I now enjoy the pleasure of watching and cheering on younger generations and look forward to each new season as it plays out on our home field at Zemp Stadium. It is my opinion that we, as a community, should keep Zemp and prepare the old facility for the future.

Vote ‘no’ for taxes

While it may be overly ambitious to tackle academia and government at the same time, to some extent, that is what I'm going to do. And in doing so, heaven forbid I assume an Obama level of arrogance required to advise you what to do. I simply am saying what I am going to do and give reasons for my decision.

Workforce act doesn’t work

The unemployment rate here in Kershaw County and across South Carolina, as well as the rest of the United States, remains disappointingly high. The economy is still mired in slow growth, and too many people are out of work. Yet a recent study by a national newspaper shows how ineffective government jobs programs can be and points out that many people who have tried to take advantage of them end up worse off than they were before starting them.
