Look in the mirror

While President Obama and House Speaker John Boehner continue negotiations in an attempt to avoid the so-called fiscal cliff, Americans across the country -- including, of course, many right here in Kershaw County -- are voicing their concerns about the irresponsibility of the federal government. But surveys of voters show a curious trend, and if we Americans want to look at one cause of the huge national debt and the dysfunction of Uncle Sam, we need look no further than ourselves.

Ariail for Dec. 12, 2012

December 12, 2012 | | Ariail


The U.S. government has never been known for efficiency, as indicated by the staggering amount of red ink under which Uncle Sam is struggling. And there's no easy way to reconcile changes that will bring the deficit under control. But there's one action that's extremely simple and effective: changing the way the government measures inflation, which affects how fast government payments rise under a variety of programs.

Graham has great future

One of the great political highlights of the 2008 elections did not take place in Washington, DC or Columbia, South Carolina, but in the City of Camden, South Carolina. The election of 26 year old Jeffrey Graham brought a pleasant spin to local politics. Many of us saw Jeffrey Graham as a "fresh, interesting, and inspiring" young man who epitomizes the spirit of a new breed of politicians. We looked forward to his leadership. He did not disappoint us.

Town Green is a gift

Have you taken the time to walk behind the center of town to the "Town Center" (editors note: Town Green)? My husband and I parked on Broad and walked the alley to the new town square and were confronted with a breath-taking view of King Hagler and Joseph Kershaw -- if you listened very quietly, you could almost hear them speaking. From the top of their heads to the beadwork on King Hagler's moccasins, this statue is wonderfully realistic. Just behind the statue is another beautiful Christmas tree with the blue and red and green lights of Christmas. What a ...

DeMint served S.C., U.S.

It saddens me to read (Editor Martin L. Cahn's) views regarding Sen. Jim DeMint relating to his service in the U.S. Senate. He served faithfully and honorably, completely the opposite of what you alluded to in your editor's piece. It gladdened my heart to have a truly righteous man as a senator from our state. I am a "Southern boy," born and raised in the South, and still rejoice that we elect people of character who you say "hurt this country." The values that many of we Southerners hang on to, which apparently you "progressives" believe are ...
