Editorial: Homelessness

Our recent front page story on homelessness in Kershaw County highlighted a part of our community we sometimes don't want to think about, much less see. We suspect it's because of homeless stereotypes: those who live on the streets or in their cars with no job or prospect of one whether due to poor life choices or ill luck.

Morgan: Education -- A catalyst for economic development

Economic development is undoubtedly the front burner topic in our state and in Kershaw County. For good reason.

Joseph: It’s in the numbers…

The grumbles resonated from the kitchen. The sound wasn't particularly loud or piercing at least in the beginning. I guess you could describe it as a low, irregular whine of sorts. I walked in and there he was -- my 11-year old son slumped over his math sheet looking as if the world would end if he did not finish the problems before him. Of course, he was absolute in the fact his mom could not help him with this "math Armageddon." He insisted he would fight this battle alone. I thought to myself, "Does anyone like math? He must ...

Editorial: Alternative power

Older Kershaw County residents will remember the oil embargo of the 1970s, when there were long lines at service stations here and across the nation. Since then, there's been a never-ending quest for the United States to become more energy-independent and to develop clean, alternative sources of power. Wind and solar have been touted for decades, by some as a cure-all, but they still remain a tiny percentage of all the energy created.

Editorial: Tone it down

There are many things we like about Gov. Nikki Haley, chief among them being her determined focus on economic development. Haley has been a tireless campaigner for South Carolina when it comes to attracting business to the Palmetto State, and it's paid off in lots of jobs and significant tax revenue. We also like the fact she's a female of Indian descent who helps the diversity picture in South Carolina.

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. But earlier this week, as Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas kicked off his 2016 presidential campaign, Rep. Peter King of New York, a Republican just like Cruz, was free in dismissing Cruz as "a guy with a big mouth and no results." Going on to liken Cruz to a carnival barker, King verbally eviscerated the Texas senator. Of course, there's ...
