KCSO creates internet exchange safe zone

Too often, people read about Craigslist or other internet sales resulting in armed robberies, assaults and even murders. These crimes happen when people show up with large sums of money or items of value and there was never any intention on the part of one of the parties to consummate a sales transaction, according to the Kershaw County Sheriff's Office (KCSO)

Stop the lunacy

A community ball field is easily the last place one would expect shots fired in blind malice. Such a thought in such a setting is about as far removed from American ideals as it gets. The fact that the victims were targeted because of their political affiliations is beyond insanity and yet in some ways it's a sad and logical conclusion to the mindless vitriol that seems so prevalent these days. Indeed, it can easily feel like another harbinger that our society -- the greatest society ever conceived on the face of and in the history of the earth – are ...

The role of business in legislative affairs

Recently, I've been thinking about the role of businesses in legislative affairs. My perception has been that larger businesses are the ones who get involved and have the most influence. They have seemingly unlimited funding and resources to make sure their voice is heard by local, state and national elected officials. This perspective ignored small business, who generate 54 percent of sales in the U.S. and provide 55 percent of all jobs (according to the Small Business Administration's small business trends website: https://www.sba.gov/managing-business/running-business/energy-efficiency/sustainable-business-practices/small-business-trends). Where is the voice of the ...
