How WikiLeaks can make us less free

It is symbolically appropriate that among other charges in Sweden WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange is accused of having unprotected sex with two women in Stockholm. I don't know whether the world-famous Internet whistleblower is guilty or not, but the allegation certainly fits his reputation for world-class recklessness.

The school board has plans now to spend $1.25 million of the IPP funds to buy the Howden-Buffalo office building (the old Builders Transport building on U.S. 1 in Camden, near Wal-Mart) for a new administrative office complex. We just have a few questions for the board.

Tax facts

Voters in Kershaw County and nationwide have been bombarded with news during the past few days regarding the compromise between the Obama administration and Congressional Republicans on tax policy. Democrats in Washington, who for nearly two years have been accusing the GOP of obstructionism, are the people in this instance who are throwing up roadblocks. To listen to them tell it, lower-income Americans are being saddled with a lion's share of the American tax burden while upper-income citizens walk away on April 15 scot-free. So here are a few facts:

KershawHeath provides outstanding care

Having recently had surgery at KershawHealth, I would like to compliment our hospital and staff. How fortunate we are in Kershaw County to have a facility that provides excellent, compassionate care. What could have been an uncomfortable Thanksgiving Day was actually a pleasant experience thanks to the staff at KershawHealth. Each person I encountered was careful and caring, and each was absolutely committed to the job at hand, and certainly to the patient. As a matter of fact, several friends and family members visiting from Columbia remarked that when they need hospital care, they will come here … and with pride ...

Christmas carols offer more than just a catchy tune

I love this time of the year! Riding through town, seeing the Christmas Lights, and seeing the hustle-and-bustle of holiday shopping, but most of all, I love the Christmas music. I don't know what it is about that type of music, but it seems to always put people in a better mood. After doing some reading on traditional Christmas music, I found some very interesting facts.

A time to govern

WASHINGTON -- New Hampshire Republican Judd Gregg could reel off a list of problems with the debt-reduction blueprint produced by the president's fiscal responsibility commission -- beginning with the fact that, as Gregg sees it, the plan doesn't do nearly enough to reduce the debt: By 2020, in the unlikely event that all the recommendations are enacted, the debt would still stand at an unhealthy share of gross domestic product, between 60 percent and 70 percent.

Scrapbook for Dec. 8, 2010

Did you ever cut apple slices and a few minutes later find them all turning brown? When an apple is cut, and air gets to the inside, it turns brown. That's what apples do. The apple is probably still safe to eat, but it's not pretty!
