Guilty

The conviction earlier this week of Michael Jackson's physician on a charge of involuntary manslaughter brings to an end one of the most spectacular-yet-bizarre careers ever witnessed in the glitzy world of show business. Jackson was an immensely talented individual whose life became increasingly eccentric as time went on, with well-publicized incidents which highlighted his abnormal behavior as an entertainer and in his private life.

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.
