Sidewalk Survey -- May 4, 2011

Sheriff should have councilman's support

As a concerned citizen of Kershaw County who wants and expects strong law enforcement, I am extremely disappointed in Kershaw County Councilman Sammie Tucker's actions toward our newly elected Sheriff Jim Matthews. Not only has Councilman Tucker voted against everything our new Sheriff has requested, he has recently taken his animosity towards Sheriff Matthews to a new level by blaming him and the Kershaw County Sheriff's Office as the culprit behind the necessity for the countywide pay scale. If I recall correctly, Sheriff Matthews instituted his own pay scale prior to the development of the pay scale now ...

The reality of free speech

Newspapers are generally in the forefront of free speech issues; along with trying to keep government meetings open and accessible to the public, first amendment rights usually are pretty sacrosanct in the newspaper business. Yet as the Supreme Court pondered the case of Kansas' Westboro Baptist Church a few weeks ago -- those are the kooks who show up at military funerals with all sorts of distasteful protest signs -- we had settled into a feeling of, "If the justices can find a way out of this without allowing those horrid people a right to spew their venom, we'll be fine ...

Scrapbook -- April 4, 2011

I hear that cicadas are back. My children used to collect the shells they leave on tree trunks. The ones we are seeing now are a species that appears in 13-year intervals. They are probably best known for their buzzing and clicking noises. Their sound is one of the "summer sounds." The males make this noise with a "built-in drum."

She’s back

No couple in America stirs emotions like Bill and Hillary Clinton, so when she showed up at an Iowa political festival acting more and more like a presidential candidate, it caused quite a flap among those who have begun such movements as "Ready For Hillary," and also among those who'd rather see anybody than her become president. But it proved one thing: that even after decades in the spotlight of the political arena, she still commands attention.

Give me air!!

Hot, hot, hot! We're on the second day of 99 degrees-plus-the-heat-index weather. I'm on my wide front porch on the shady side of the house with a woven Palmetto frond fan in my hand. Back and forth, waving steadily. It helps a little -- fanning my sweat glistened cheeks and neck. The ladies a century ago would have said they were "glowing." They used these fans too -- in fact my older friend bought dozens of them for her daughter's summer wedding at Salem Black River Presbyterian years ago -- before they put in air conditioning. She gave me this ...
