Texting ban

South Carolina is now one of 16 states which don't ban sending text messages while driving. In recent years, more and more states have prohibited the dangerous practice -- 13 since the beginning of last year. It's time for the Palmetto State to step forward and join what is a common-sense practice by banning texting while behind the wheel. Republicans who control the General Assembly will sometimes say they don't want to add any more government regulations, but a ban on texting makes just as much sense as a speed limit or a law to prevent passing on ...

Forgiveness and a promise

On Sept. 15, I had the misfortune of falling in a parking lot. I tripped over some broken pavement. I damaged both knees, knocked my front tooth out (partially, which required a root canal), busted my nose, injured my right hand which required stitches, and bruised my arm. I was bleeding profusely from my nose and hand. Two ladies came to my aid. They called an ambulance. We waited 25 minutes for its arrival.

Back to basics

If you suddenly lost electric and gas power, could you cook? A group that gathered at the Camden Archives and Museum recently for an open fire cooking demo could. A demonstration led by Katherine Richardson, newest staff member at the archives, netted roasted chicken, venison burgers, steamed root vegetables, corn fritters and an apple pie by the hands of Deborah Watts and Mel Welch. The visiting, open fire chefs from the Sumter County Museum delighted the gathered crowd of more than 50 spectators with their clothing, preparation and tastings. School children made butter in an old-fashioned crock churn. They made ...

A disturbing trend

We wrote recently of the disturbing trend in the White House of spinning every issue through press spokesmen rather than engaging in open questioning about issues of interest to Americans. A lack of transparency isn't limited to the federal government, as the S.C. Supreme Court has recently issued two troubling rulings which limit public access in the Palmetto State.
