Matthew Perry

It is difficult for children in Kershaw County today to even imagine the Jim Crow era, when African-Americans had to use separate bathrooms, couldn't eat in most restaurants, endured poor facilities and often had a difficult time even voting. That was just a bit more than a generation ago, and one of the towering figures who fought such injustices was Matthew Perry, who died earlier this week at age 89.

YMCA not county's concern

I have taken no position regarding the YMCA controversy because I don't live in the city limits. I do pay taxes to the city by virtue of shopping and frequenting restaurants in the city, and while I believe purchasing property and constructing a YMCA facility is a far cry from the highest and best use of the citizens' dollars and is as unwise as the Town Green, still I felt objection should come from residents of the city.

Editorial: Thanksgiving

On Sept. 28, 1789, according to a government website, the First Federal Congress passed a resolution asking President George Washington recommend to the nation a day of thanksgiving. The site goes on to describe what happened: a few days later, Washington issued a proclamation naming Thursday, Nov. 26, 1789, as a "day of public thanksgiving" -- the first time the holiday was celebrated by our fledgling country.

Letter: Treat them like one of ‘us’

It has been said practically every major issue that passes through our GOP-elected officials' state house -- from education to healthcare to the selection of judges -- has racial undertones. And our GOP-elected officials may have passed the crossroad beyond which to get these evil spirits that loom over our state house in order.
