Jurisdictions and responsibilities of law enforcement agencies have been pretty well defined in our area and, of course, we seek perfection in protection of citizens. It bothers me somewhat, however, that we have not reached perfection in Kershaw County in the areas of present responsibility of our elected county sheriff. I have had responsible positions throughout my long life, and while I wanted and desired extra responsibilities, I had to realize that I couldn't be all things to all people. On the sheriff's desire to move into trooper's responsibilities he has his ideas and thinks he can ...
WASHINGTON -- Failure of political leadership knows no party. The past few days have offered an unfortunate demonstration of this sad maxim: House Speaker John Boehner ducking his appropriate role in countering the belief that President Obama is a Muslim, and the president himself, once again ducking a leadership role in dealing with the nation's fiscal crisis.

• The news that the city of Camden plans to install an elevator at Camden City Hall is quite welcome. It is especially so to the city's disabled citizens who have found it difficult to come to court or attend Camden City Council meetings, both of which take place on the second floor. Many years ago, the city installed a chair-lift system attached to a railing of the building's main stairwell. It hasn't always worked and some people find its appearance a bit daunting. Installing the elevator -- which will also allow employees and visitors to reach offices and ...
