Memorial Day weekend safety

The Memorial Day weekend is approaching and drivers should expect more traffic on the road. Memorial Day is the start of the "100 deadly days of summer." Our fatalities tend to rise during this time because of more vehicles traveling across our state. This year alone in Troop 1 which covers Richland, Lexington, Kershaw, Lee, Sumter and Clarendon counties, our communities have experienced 63 traffic fatalities. These fatalities are the result of speed, alcohol, and occupants not wearing seatbelts, pedestrians and motorcyclists. Memorial Day weekend of 2011 there was one fatality in Troop 1.

Right-wing rage trips itself

I'll say this for the Supreme Court's decision to open the floodgates to big money by independent groups in political campaigns. It will be illuminating and, I am certain, often entertaining to watch the big money trip over itself.

Term limits

There are countless reasons that our system of government in Washington is broken so badly, but there's one concept -- it's in effect in many states, already – that would effect immediate change and would help solve our crisis in government: term limits. Of course it's not a new concept, but limiting people to a particular number of terms, whether in the House of Representatives or the Senate -- would help free many elected officials to make decisions based on what's best for the country rather than on getting re-elected.

Politics and law enforcement don't mix

I, along with most other Kershaw County residents, was surprised and stunned by Kershaw County Council's recent idea to shift control of the Kershaw County Sheriff's Office from the voters to themselves. I thought the idea alone was ridiculous. Then some councilmen raised the bar from ridiculous to ludicrous with explanations that their intent was to "…take the politics out of county law enforcement…" What?! Take the politics out of county law enforcement by having county politicians run it? And make no mistake, whatever is said now about control of the proposed county police department, it would be ...

The CNG

We're glad to see that automakers in the United States are getting serious about producing vehicles that run on compressed natural gas (CNG), a fuel that is readily available in this country and much cheaper than gasoline. It's estimated that the U.S. has more than a 100-year supply of natural gas presently on hand, and prices have been falling, as opposed to the costs of gasoline. And, of course, running vehicles with a native fuel lessens dependence on the Middle East and its volatile politics. As we pointed out recently, we're enthusiastic about the fuel-efficient diesel-powered ...

The aviator's helmet

Bob Clithero displays a vintage leather pilot's helmet of a type that would have been used by aviators in the early 20th century. Clithero spoke about Winston Groom's book, "The Aviators," during a recent meeting of the Golden K Club. The book is about three giants of aviation -- Jimmy Doolittle, Charles Lindbergh, and Eddie Rickenbacker -- and their enormous influence and contribution to aviation and to the world. All three, Clithero said, were raised in relative poverty and estranged from their fathers, but had strong relationships with their mothers. All three were innovators and mechanical geniuses. All three survived ...
