While the Kershaw County School District persistently attempts to squeeze every last dime they can muster from families who struggle to pay their bills, our neighbors in Richland County are getting tax breaks from their local school district.
Most Kershaw County residents will breathe a sigh of relief this morning because they'll no longer be subjected to the constant bombardment of negative political ads which have dominated the airwaves for the past couple months. The so-called political operatives who run campaigns insist negative ads are used because they're effective. We challenge that; such commercials might have worked a few years ago, before they were used by nearly every candidate, but we'd wager that for most voters, they have lost their power.

President Obama, who promised the most transparent administration in history, has delivered perhaps the least transparent. Following the trend of other recent presidents, Obama has kept a tight lid on the press, rarely interacting with reporters in a spontaneous fashion and instead relying on the spin of his White House press directors. And it has gotten worse the longer Obama has been in office; one report last week indicated that the administration was denying access on a variety of subjects with increasing regularity. The Associated Press reported, "In category after category -- except for reducing numbers of old requests and a ...
