The trials of Saint Santorum

WASHINGTON -- You've likely heard by now that the presidential election may pivot on the unlikely "controversy" of birth control.

Tax system reform

It's ironic that after years of declaring the United States' antiquated tax system needs overhauling, members of Congress now appear ready to effect substantive changes -- in the midst of the most partisan rancor that has been seen in Washington in years. President Obama has already proposed a cut in the corporate tax rate to make U.S. companies more competitive, offsetting some of the cuts with an elimination of specialized tax breaks that have been ludicrous over a number of years.

There’s a new sheriff’s office in town

Tuesday night I attended the Kershaw County Sheriff Office's community update in the West Wateree area. I want to echo what one of your readers expressed some time ago. We are indeed blessed to have Sheriff Matthews and his committed deputies protecting us. I have lived in Elgin for 13 years. Several of my neighbors and I have been victims of home invasions or car break-ins. Over the years, I have watched little, peaceful Elgin begin an evolution into the Wild, Wild West, but there is truly a new sheriff in town!

Noted and passed - May 18, 2015

• Depending on one's point of view, it may feel like years or just yesterday since the name "Beechwood" was part of a headline in this newspaper. Nine years ago, an entire movement formed to block the 65-acre Knights Hill Road property's annexation into the city limits of Camden. Later, the same group, Preserve Camden for Responsible Growth, fought against some aspects of the plans to subdivide and develop Beechwood. In 2009, Camden Community Properties (CCP) purchased the property, promising to, eventually, create a retirement village at Beechwood under Planned Development District (PDD) zoning. After six years, it appears ...
