But an analysis of voting trends in the recent New Hampshire primary and in the rest of the country, enumerated by a column in The Wall Street Journal, has helped shatter that image.

Reader: Zemp answer raises questions

The Kershaw County School Board response in Monday's Chronicle-Independent to Scott Jordan's statement on Zemp Stadium is nothing if not informative.
