Veterans Day: 10 best cities for vets to live in

Veterans make an average of $36,381 a year, according to the U.S. Census Bureau. And while that is a higher average than the rest of the population -- $25,820 -- it doesn't mean they can afford to be frivolous.

Veterans Day: Sweet Liberty

The dog is about 39 pounds, low to the ground and well-muscled, her fur a mottle of patches and spots. At a guess, she's a heeler mix, a shelter refugee, maybe 4 years old.

Drinking age

Picture this: a young man from Kershaw County graduates at the top of his high school class and turns down academic college scholarship offers in favor of joining the Navy and pursuing his dream of becoming a Seal, the most elite fighting corps. He makes it through the rigorous training, attains his dream and distinguishes himself in combat during two tours of duty in the Middle East.

Early forecast: More gridlock

WASHINGTON -- Is the government's gridlock about to be dislodged? Imagine the capital as a giant set of pulleys and levers, operating at cross purposes. In the end, the forces tugging President Obama and Republican leaders apart may be more powerful than the ones pushing them together.

The night shift

One of the most common reactions I get when people find out what I do is most people think I get paid to play. It's quite true that I enjoy my work and I never wish to go back to punching the 9-to-5 clock anymore than I wish to go to the same old boring place to work over and over again. Looking across the boundaries of genus and species, our representatives in nature all have a job to do that we call a niche. The jobs that are done in the natural world are as varied and as ...

Transparency

Operating under the simple premise that citizens have a right to know as much as they can about how their government officials operate, and how that affects governmental agencies as a whole, we almost always favor laws and regulations which require transparency in government. Transparency, of course, is an overused word, but it basically means that government agencies must operate in a way that allows citizens to observe what's happening, and even to have input about what's taking place.

Sheriff responds to firearms discharge ordinance decision

The committee to study whether or not Kershaw County should enact some type of firearms discharge ordinance finally came back with its finding. As I fully expected, there will be no ordinance of any kind to deal with this growing problem. William Tetterton, a criminal defense attorney, former prosecutor and friend of mine chaired this committee. Mr. Tetterton was against any kind of firearms discharge ordinance from the beginning, so it seems a little disingenuous that a man who was strongly opposed to any firearms discharge ordinance would chair a panel deciding on whether or not one should be enacted.
