Sen. Graham

We often bemoan the lack of bipartisan effort in Washington these days, a sad set of circumstances that leads to gridlock. Partisanship is at an all-time high now, and there are only a few people in Washington who are willing to reach across the aisle to help forge compromise. Now, because Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina is one of those people, some in the Palmetto State's Republican Party want to mount a primary challenge to him. Some in the right wing of the party want to see no compromise whatsoever, which is basically like saying, "We really like ...

Ariail for July 15, 2013

July 15, 2013 | | Ariail


Noted and passed - July 15, 2013

• With all the hoopla over online retailing, it's surprising to see figures indicating that of all 2013 first-quarter sales, only 5.5 percent of them involved e-commerce; further, many companies which started selling products on-line are now starting to build brick-and-mortar stores. The predictions of the death of traditional retailing have obviously been overblown.

Technology and ‘bang for the buck’

While I was wandering around the Kershaw County Farmer's Market on a recent Saturday, I struck up a conversation with a community member about technology in schools. Our conversation mostly had to do with whether or not our district is getting a "bang for the buck" for its investment in technology. We had a pretty interesting discussion, but I did walk away wondering why I've never had the same discussion with anyone about textbooks. The taxpayers of South Carolina spend about $4 million in Kershaw County for textbooks. It's more than a little surprising to me that ...
