Noted and passed for Oct. 17, 2011

• If you don't think things change rapidly in the political world, you need look no further than Herman Cain, who was a mere blip on the Republican radar a few weeks ago and is now leading the polls. Only time will tell whether his star will fade, and there are many who criticize his "9-9-9" economic plan, advocating 9 percent income tax, 9 percent corporate tax and 9 percent sales tax. But one thing's for sure: the U. S. tax code is so burdensome and unwieldy that it needs a complete revamping. We wish other candidates would give ...

Visiting artists in the schools are sponsored by the Fine Arts Center of Kershaw County's ...

Vanity plates

Years ago, when non-traditional license plates were first authorized in South Carolina, they were called "vanity plates" because many people who bought them put their initials on them. Since then, the specialty plate trend has grown to the point that the Palmetto State has more than 300 different varieties, ranging from NASCAR fans to Boykin Spaniel owners to Jimmy Buffett mavens. Law enforcement officers are finally starting to say enough is enough, the problem being that the plethora of plates is aborting the original mission of having them: to identify cars.

Editorial: Traffic light needed

Most, although not necessarily all, people in Bethune appear to want an actual traffic light at the intersection of U.S. 1 and S.C. 341 rather than the blinking red and yellow lights there now or a proposed four-way stop. We happen to fall into the traffic light column on this issue. First, if set up correctly, with sensors to alert the system someone on U.S. 341 wants to cross the intersection, the light can be set to green most of the time for U.S. 1 traffic. This will allow truckers and others to, slowly of course ...
