Noted and passed -- Jan. 30, 2012

• The concept of youth and job shadowing has been around for years now, and its merits are as valuable as ever. Kershaw County middle-schoolers will be allowed to accompany a parent, relative or neighbor on the job Thursday to learn more about the workplace. The primary goal is to allow these seventh- and eighth-graders to find out about careers and jobs and the expectations that come with them. For students who are unable to participate, the Kershaw County School District provides virtual job shadowing activities in the classroom. The job shadowing experience can be an enriching one, and we hope ...

Gingrich’s ‘umbrage card’ trick

What do you do when you're a presidential candidate like Newt Gingrich who lugs so much baggage that your baggage has baggage? That's easy. You reach up your sleeve and.... Oh, yes. You play the umbrage card. You fume and fuss with outrage over the question and hope no one demands an answer.

Letters: Reader says Democrats ‘confessing’ torture is distraction

I'm sure everyone is abreast of all the hullaballoo over interrogation techniques used by the CIA to get information from the Guantanamo detainees to assist in avoiding another World Trade Center disaster. Dianne Feinstein, along with Obama and most of the congressional Democrats, insisted on "confessing," as they put it, despite the secretary of state urging against it, terming it detrimental to our interests and safety abroad. So, immediately, China and Korea termed us "bad boys," and why not -- didn't the current administration essentially say that?

Editorial: Police officers

With police behavior having been in the news recently because of incidents in which white officers killed unarmed black citizens, there has been much discussion -- rightfully so -- about whether some officers are acting recklessly.
