I'm not much of a movie-goer -- maybe one a year, or two at the most. But I intend to see "True Grit." First of all, westerns are my favorite type movie, though they don't make many of them anymore. And second, Jeff Bridges is a good actor. I'm not a sophisticated enough movie maven to truly appreciate fine acting, but his performance as the down-and-out country singer in "Crazy Heart" was ...
My first Saturday night in office started at 8:00PM in the training room at the Sheriff's Office. I joined Sheriff's Deputies, Camden Police Officers, a couple of 16-year-old minors and two of my captains for a briefing by a Sheriff's Office investigator. He briefed everyone on our operations for the night. We were going to target stores in Kershaw County that could legally sell beer just to see if they would sell to these ...

Here is my take on the law escort fee for funerals. I agree there should be a fee, just not as much as proposed. It was stated that it takes deputies away from their patrol. If this is the case the school board has to be charged for the traffic control before and after school, because we have more schools in this county than SROs to handle this task so that takes deputies away from their patrol. ...

WASHINGTON -- We have reached a new level of political absurdity when the right is mad at the pope and the left wants to anoint his head with oil.
The state of Alabama recently took a step towards righting one of the most egregious miscarriages of justice ever perpetrated in this country, issuing posthumous pardons to three members of the "Scottsboro Boys," who were wrongly accused in 1931 of raping two white women on a train. Eight of the nine charged were swiftly convicted and sentenced to death by an all-white jury, with a mistrial being declared for ...
