Ariail for Sept. 28, 2012

September 28, 2012 | | Ariail


Football refs

People here in Kershaw County and South Carolina take their football seriously. Though the Carolina Panthers are based in nearby Charlotte, the college game still reigns supreme here, but Sunday afternoons still attract plenty of fans who like to watch the National Football League games. Some of those contests have been thrown into disarray by substitute officials who have taken the place of the league's regular officials, who were locked out by team owners in a labor dispute.

Dail Dinwiddie: Once upon a disappearance

WASHINGTON -- I've written variations of this column a couple of times during the past 20 years, but certain occasions bear revisiting -- and surely the disappearance of a friend is one.

Arbor Day: a 25-year local celebration

With the official start of autumn last week and the holidays soon upon us, my thoughts turn to a truly unique American holiday. No, not Thanksgiving but Arbor Day. Perhaps you may recall celebrating Arbor Day in elementary school, perhaps you remember hearing John Denver singing "Trees for Your Tomorrow" on television or radio on behalf of the National Arbor Day Foundation or perhaps you've seen an article about it in The Chronicle Independent with a photo of people standing around a newly planted tree.

City earned it’s ‘A’ rating

Recently, you received a letter which discussed the city's recent announcement of its "A" bond rating.

The writer implied that this amount came from recent increased utility rates. Yes, there have been recent increases, but that is solely caused by (the) increased cost of the purchase of electricity from Progress Energy because of their increased ...

Mitt in Fantasyland

WASHINGTON -- In Mitt Romney's Fantasyland version of the American Dream, all it takes to succeed in this country is determination and hard work. Government merely needs to get out of the way, roust the Entitlement Society slackers, and let the Opportunity Society strivers go for it.
