Sheriff should have councilman's support

As a concerned citizen of Kershaw County who wants and expects strong law enforcement, I am extremely disappointed in Kershaw County Councilman Sammie Tucker's actions toward our newly elected Sheriff Jim Matthews. Not only has Councilman Tucker voted against everything our new Sheriff has requested, he has recently taken his animosity towards Sheriff Matthews to a new level by blaming him and the Kershaw County Sheriff's Office as the culprit behind the necessity for the countywide pay scale. If I recall correctly, Sheriff Matthews instituted his own pay scale prior to the development of the pay scale now ...

The reality of free speech

Newspapers are generally in the forefront of free speech issues; along with trying to keep government meetings open and accessible to the public, first amendment rights usually are pretty sacrosanct in the newspaper business. Yet as the Supreme Court pondered the case of Kansas' Westboro Baptist Church a few weeks ago -- those are the kooks who show up at military funerals with all sorts of distasteful protest signs -- we had settled into a feeling of, "If the justices can find a way out of this without allowing those horrid people a right to spew their venom, we'll be fine ...

Scrapbook -- April 4, 2011

I hear that cicadas are back. My children used to collect the shells they leave on tree trunks. The ones we are seeing now are a species that appears in 13-year intervals. They are probably best known for their buzzing and clicking noises. Their sound is one of the "summer sounds." The males make this noise with a "built-in drum."

Why a hike in the gas tax is a terrible idea

The issue of road funding -- or, to put it slightly differently, the question of how South Carolina should fix its broken road system -- is now a constant topic in politics and the media. A fair number of state lawmakers have therefore begun to advocate what politicians always advocate when they don't want to make tough decisions about the budget: raising taxes, specifically the fuel tax.
