Noted and passed for Oct. 3, 2011

• We've commented all along that a pending bill to require South Carolina voters to present a photo ID at the polls was no big deal, though some opponents claimed it would be unfair because some people don't have ready access to such identification cards. The state has offered the estimated 178,000 Palmetto State residents without a card free transportation to a DMV center to have one made at no cost. Only 600 people have taken the state up on the offer, indicating to us that the rest don't have much interest in voting, anyway.

During the 1730s, when the Township Plan was devised to entice interior settlement via offers of free land (Fredericksburg, later Camden, being one), a group of Welsh Baptists from New Jersey were granted land to settle either side of the Pee Dee River. The settlement became known as the Welsh Tract. Johannes Kolb, a German farmer who had emigrated to New Jersey in 1704, was among those who acquired land in the tract in the late 1730s.
