A message to Kershaw County and a victim's son

As we have come to the end of the National Law Enforcement Memorial Week, I wish to let the citizens of Kershaw County know that their law enforcement is one of the most professional and dedicated in the state of South Carolina. This past week, officers have responded to hundreds of 911 emergency calls for service; hundreds of non-emergency calls; served civil and criminal warrants -- 100 plus to be exact in 3 States; and spent, combined, thousands of hours serving the community in which we live.

Editorial: Ted Cruz

In this day of polarized politics, you rarely hear a member of one party criticize a member of the same party, and you seldom hear a compliment thrown towards a candidate from someone who resides in the opposite camp.

Going on to liken Cruz to a carnival barker, King verbally eviscerated the Texas senator. Of course, there's ...

Wilson: Fighting back against food stamp fraud

Every day, in every area of our state, hardworking South Carolina taxpayers are being robbed. They are not held up at gunpoint and their homes are not burglarized. But, they are the victims of theft just the same. Criminals are stealing federal funds and using that money for their personal benefit. They are committing fraud against the food stamp program. In fact, they pocket more than $2 million of your tax dollars every year in South Carolina alone.
