I am a CPA and Partner with Grant Thornton LLP in Columbia. The YMCA has had a wonderful influence on my life and career. I am hopeful that City Council will move forward with the plan to bring a Y to our town.

Debt and voting: we should all vote

You have heard every American citizen shares in our national debt. Today -- each of us, newborns, included! Approximately $48,000! How much would you owe when you add a home mortgage, automobile debt, credit card debt, insurance bills, food bill, and energy bill each month? Be this the case, would you or I ever get out of debt? This is not counting the possible raising the national debt that Obama is wanting by another $1.5 trillion in early this year. This president wants to break our country. Do you the taxpayer like this? I do not! This is a ...

Not so transparent

President Obama, who promised the most transparent administration in history, has delivered perhaps the least transparent. Following the trend of other recent presidents, Obama has kept a tight lid on the press, rarely interacting with reporters in a spontaneous fashion and instead relying on the spin of his White House press directors. And it has gotten worse the longer Obama has been in office; one report last week indicated that the administration was denying access on a variety of subjects with increasing regularity. The Associated Press reported, "In category after category -- except for reducing numbers of old requests and a ...

Sheriff doesn’t support firearms ordinance as proposed

I want to go on record by saying that I am opposed to the "firearms discharge" ordinance as it was originally introduced. However, I am in favor of one if it can be revised to better fit Kershaw County. I also want the public to know that I am pro-gun, pro-Second Amendment and a lifetime member of the National Rifle Association (NRA). As sheriff, I have approved hundreds, if not thousands, of concealed weapons permit applications. I am also an avid hunter and gun owner.
