Noted and passed - July 9, 2012

• Having watched and participated in July Fourth celebrations, we are struck by the same thought that hits us each year on Independence Day: that despite this country's problems, even with the bipartisan wrangling that threatens to upend our political process, considering the economy that is having a hard time gaining traction, the United States is still far and away the greatest country in the world. We join others across Kershaw County in celebrating the magnificent heritage and promising future of the good old U.S. of A.

Words of a fool

For reasons unbeknownst to me, I've not been completely familiar with the hateful motives of the Westboro Baptist Church (WBC) of Topeka, Kansas; perhaps I've chosen to ignore the disturbing; I'm not exactly sure -- until now -- when last week I received an email from a member of my boys' soccer club in Lexington. It was this communication that brought the odium-filled beliefs of the Westboro Church in to my view. My findings were so unsettling; it was inevitable that I impart them to others. In the email, those who could were asked, "if your conscience guides you ...

Transparency

Operating under the simple premise that citizens have a right to know as much as they can about how their government officials operate, and how that affects governmental agencies as a whole, we almost always favor laws and regulations which require transparency in government. Transparency, of course, is an overused word, but it basically means that government agencies must operate in a way that allows citizens to observe what's happening, and even to have input about what's taking place.

Sheriff responds to firearms discharge ordinance decision

The committee to study whether or not Kershaw County should enact some type of firearms discharge ordinance finally came back with its finding. As I fully expected, there will be no ordinance of any kind to deal with this growing problem. William Tetterton, a criminal defense attorney, former prosecutor and friend of mine chaired this committee. Mr. Tetterton was against any kind of firearms discharge ordinance from the beginning, so it seems a little disingenuous that a man who was strongly opposed to any firearms discharge ordinance would chair a panel deciding on whether or not one should be enacted.
