My quest for 'commonsense' gun laws

In the wake of the Colorado catastrophe, in which a maniac shooter killed at least a dozen people in a theater showing the latest Batman movie, everyone seems to be calling for "commonsense" gun laws. Unfortunately it's hard to tell whose sense is common enough these days.

Haul out the rail, tar bucket and feathers

The taxpayers of Kershaw County have been given another "sewer" tax bill to pay until the end of time. A "solid waste" fee. This was a "slam dunk" proposal for the citizens of our county just like the sewer fee that is most certainly and can be called an illegal tax. This was introduced by the former council chairman. He left before the 1-cent tax was introduced. The fee for solid waste was not established before a vote was taken. This question was a foregone conclusion before a vote was taken. A question was asked some time ago to the ...

Olympic spirit

The 2012 Olympic games begin today in London, and while there's always a touch of politics involved, the event still is inspirational as an example of international goodwill among all those who participate. The opening ceremonies have become an extravaganza over the years, but the best part is still the entrance into the stadium of the athletes from around the world, all there to compete against each other in the best tradition of sportsmanship.

Tax tips - July 27, 2012

If you adopted a child last year and requested an extension of time to file your 2011 taxes, you may be able to claim the expanded adoption credit on your federal tax return.

Computers are available

This is in response to the article in the Chronicle Independent on Friday, July 20, 2012. County Council Vice Chairman Sammie Tucker Jr. was quoted as saying he did not have "ready access" to a computer. Thus the reason he had not filed appropriate paperwork for his position on Kershaw County Council. I would like to take this opportunity to inform Mr. Tucker that we, Kershaw County, have a public library with "ready access" to computers. The hours are as follows:

Editorial: Sen. Graham

Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina and Sen. John McCain of Arizona have been buddies for a long time, and they're cut out of the same cloth: moderate Republicans who are willing to cross the aisle to get legislation passed. The far-right wing of the GOP makes a lot of noise about whacking Graham down to size, but he keeps winning elections by sizeable margins. That suits us fine. We'll have to admit we thought it was pretty funny recently when McCain said he'd like to see his "illegitimate son, Lindsey Graham" make a run for the ...

Reader: Diversification not needed at Clemson

I have been a member of IPTAY (Clemson University's athletic fundraising organization) for the last 26 years. Needless to say, I support and generally agree with the manner in which Clemson is operated. Recently, however, I am in disagreement with its president's call for more diversification. Generally, when someone makes such a call, they simply want more hyphenated Americans.
