Who’s afraid of the fiscal cliff?

Maybe the Tea Party folks were right about the corrupting influences of Washington. Two years after the Tea Party radicals hit their high point with a wave of mid-term House elections, Republicans are pointing fingers at one another and bickering so much that it is hard to tell them from Democrats.

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.

Inflation

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.

Editorial: James Metts

In the last 42 years, Kershaw County has had a number of sheriffs, some of them who performed more efficiently than others. Over that entire period, nearby Lexington County had only one -- James Metts, who was sentenced to prison Monday after pleading guilty to taking money in return for letting two illegal immigrants out of jail. Though he had no direct connection to Kershaw County, many here were familiar with him through his long service in another Midlands county and a great deal of publicity he received.

Letter: ‘The hearts of the Old Armory’

On April 14, I was getting ready for work when I received a phone call stating that I did not need to come to work because we were closing for good. I thought my friend was joking. After realizing he wasn't, I got in my car and drove to the restaurant. What I witnessed was truly shocking and devastating. All of the daytime employess were sitting on the patio, banned from going inside. One employee was sitting in her car, just crying. The police were at every entrance and the IRS swarmed inside. I can't even tell you ...
