School funds have specific uses

If people are going to criticize the school board and school district superintendent for how money is spent, researching first is in order. In South Carolina, facilities and personnel are separate "pots" of money and cannot be mixed. Spending money to build does not affect money for teachers.

NEW YORK -- It befalls the columnist this time of year to look back and recap; to assign blame and shame, while offering the obligatory mea culpa; and, of course, to resolve.

Noted and passed

• Country music fans in Kershaw County and across the country might get a special treat in the coming year. Superstar Merle Haggard, who's one of the only country stars who really did serve time in prison, was recently honored at Washington's Kennedy Center with a lifetime achievement award for his work. While there he got together with old buddies Willie Nelson and Kris Kristofferson and the three are contemplating getting together as a new singing group. There aren't many better than those three, and any work coming out of their collaboration will be a treat.
