Superintendent, school board turn deaf ear to citizens

In the Jan. 31 Chronicle-Independent top story about the school district office move, the Kershaw County School District superintendent seems to make a mockery of frugality. When asked if new furniture will be purchased, Dr. Frank Morgan says he will even keep his "$69.95 state surplus conference table." The superintendent doesn't seem to understand that the people of this county, who purchased his conference table, stretch their dollars in every way they can. Most of us are average people of moderate means.

Sunday changes

Recent legislation allowing Sunday alcohol sales in Camden is just one example of how lifestyles are changing across the United States. For many years, alcohol could not be sold in any form on Sunday in South Carolina -- except, of course, in Charleston, which for decades winked slyly not only at state bans on Sunday sales but also at the state's prohibition on mixed drinks, which were officially prohibited across the Palmetto State but readily available in nearly every restaurant in the The Holy City.
