S.C. ranks near bottom again

South Carolinians shouldn't be surprised to see the state rank poorly in yet another survey. It seems the Palmetto State is forever being relegated to the bottom tier in all kinds of indicators. Some of them, of course, don't have much validity. But the latest one, in which only five states are ranked lower than South Carolina in susceptibility to political corruption, is particularly unnerving because it's one that could be avoided with a modicum of care from legislators.

C-I in step with mainstream media

As with much of the mainstream media, your edition March 9 is a poster child for what is wrong with the mainstream media and possibly a plausible explanation as to why printed media has fallen onto hard times. A previous editorial by Martin Cahn wherein he rather pompously pronounced that his opinion -- he is a journalist whatever that is -- is vastly superior to the great unwashed's opinion. A fair presumption would be those that are not "journalists."

Noted and passed - Feb. 23, 2015

• We're sad to learn of Joseph Bruce's pending retirement from KershawHealth and the KershawHealth Foundation (see our front page), but happy for him as he reaches that point in life where he can choose do what he appears to enjoy: namely traveling to the United Kingdom and other points abroad. Bruce had the difficult job of following foundation founder Vern Ketchem, who died just months before Bruce joined KershawHealth in late 2007. When we consider all the foundation has done since then, we believe Ketchem would be proud of Bruce's work. He and the foundation board launched ...

Editorial: FOIA steps

Legislators in Columbia have taken a couple of nice steps towards making government in South Carolina more open and accessible. Transparency is the word used most often these days, and while it's a bit overused, it's pretty accurate. The House of Representatives passed on second reading a bill requiring agendas at public meetings, setting up a Freedom of Information (FOI) Appeals Office and cutting the time for a response from 15 days to 10. None of them are earth-shattering, but they're solid.
