Haul out the rail, tar bucket and feathers

The taxpayers of Kershaw County have been given another "sewer" tax bill to pay until the end of time. A "solid waste" fee. This was a "slam dunk" proposal for the citizens of our county just like the sewer fee that is most certainly and can be called an illegal tax. This was introduced by the former council chairman.

This name became prevalent as it was noticed that mistletoe would appear where many birds had landed on branches and deposited their excrement, nice. This puts a whole new context on the ...
