DeMint served S.C., U.S.

It saddens me to read (Editor Martin L. Cahn's) views regarding Sen. Jim DeMint relating to his service in the U.S. Senate. He served faithfully and honorably, completely the opposite of what you alluded to in your editor's piece. It gladdened my heart to have a truly righteous man as a senator from our state. I am a "Southern boy," born and raised in the South, and still rejoice that we elect people of character who you say "hurt this country." The values that many of we Southerners hang on to, which apparently you "progressives" believe are ...

Solving the fiscal cliff

We, the taxpayers could halfway solve the fiscal cliff if we demanded the Washington, D.C., group to live on minimal wages. Let them be stressed out with paying taxes, taxes and more taxes, buy their own high-priced gas, pay all their medical expenses and benefits, struggle to keep a roof over their head, food on their table, shoes on their feet, anything to keep warm or beat the heat, and wonder where the money will come from to maintain their vehicle or pay their electric bill, for the month.

Editorial: An eyesore

In the most recent installment of our "Is Kershaw County being left behind?" series of articles on economic development, we looked at some non-industrial pieces of the puzzle.
