Reggie Lloyd

Kershaw County resident Reggie Lloyd has had an impressive -- some would say meteoric -- career run in his public life. After practicing law for a prestigious Columbia law firm, he was elected a circuit court judge, and then he became U.S. Attorney for South Carolina, the first African-American to serve in that post since Reconstruction. In 2008 he was appointed by then-Gov. Mark Sanford to head the State Law Enforcement Division.

Ariail cartoon misrepresents Obama's role in Shuttle's demise

For Robert Ariail to conflate the end of the Shuttle program with the end of U.S. leadership in space and to place the blame on President Obama gets the facts wrong: it was President Bush who announced the end of the Shuttle program on April 1, 2005. President Obama proposed the cancellation of the successor to the Shuttle program, the Constellation program. But in convoluted Washington fashion, that program's full cancellation is, by statute, actually up to Congress.

Letter: Reader appreciates Tucker follow-up story

I applaud the Chronicle-Independent for front page coverage of the dropping of charges against Mr. Sammie Tucker. All too often, especially in larger media markets, good news is relegated to the back pages, while sensational news makes the front page. I believe our community newspaper makes a concerted effort to report the news as it happens and, more importantly, reports good news.
