Looking for 'good junk'

Cassandra Mickle (center), an art teacher at Stover Middle School, has been collecting "good junk" for years. The "good junk" includes Styrofoam meat trays, egg cartons, old magazines, containers with lids, toilet and paper towel tubes and other items. During the past few years, students have used "good junk" items to make creative pieces of art. Due to recent budget cuts, Mickle said she has relied more and more on these items – much of which is donated by the community -- for her art classes. Most recently, a large donation of art sketch pads was given by Dan and Lisa McDonald ...

More spending by public, private sectors would stimulate economy

In August you ran an enlightening editorial on the U.S. government's revenue, appropriations, deficit, and debt levels for fiscal year 2011. By eliminating eight zeroes from each figure, thereby reducing trillions to tens of thousands, you brought the picture down to a scale the hypothetically typical Smith family could relate to; and you reasonably concluded that the unfortunate Smiths would "be headed for financial oblivion."

Does TIF district include train station?

According to an article by Martin L. Cahn in the Chronicle-Independent dated Oct. 26, 2011, Councilman Walter Long, in reference to the TIF district, stated to Councilman Willard Polk: "This even includes a piece of property that you and your wife have asked about and that is the old railroad station." Asked about? Perhaps he should be more accurate. I -- not my husband -- worked for approximately two years to acquire "that old railroad station" for the city, and CSX agreed. However, when it came down to a final agreement, our City Council at that time (which included Long) did not ...

Gene Rollins

Kershaw County has all sorts of unique things that make it a good place to live. One of those is the series of lakeside worship services that's held each summer on the shores of Lake Wateree. The project was begun more than 30 years ago as an outreach of Liberty Hill Presbyterian Church; Gene Rollins was not yet the pastor there, but he came to the church shortly afterward and helped spur phenomenal growth not only at the church itself but at the lakeside services.

Sour grapes and the law

After learning of the four civil lawsuits filed against our newly elected Sheriff Jim Matthews I decided to research some of the facts. I discovered that Sheriff Matthews has a very distinguished career in law enforcement serving this state and this country. He was a peace officer with the city of Columbia, Lexington County and Richland County, and was one of the first three South Carolina law officers to be selected to serve with the Federal Drug Enforcement Administration. He was an instructor for many years at the FBI academy on several subjects; he taught classes on surveillance, undercover surveillance ...

The Harrell case

It was another black eye for South Carolina last week when Rep. Bobby Harrell, speaker of the House of Representatives, was indicted by a Richland County grand jury on nine counts, including illegally using campaign money for personal expenses, filing false campaign disclosures and misconduct in office. Harrell suspended himself -- how's that for an oddity? -- and will now face his government accusers. South Carolina certainly doesn't have a monopoly on political malfeasance but the Palmetto State has had more than its share of governmental scandal. We say that fully recognizing that Harrell is innocent until proven guilty.

Looking for an ‘angel’

On Sunday afternoon (Sept. 7), my friend was driving south of Jefferson Davis Highway. It was raining, with lots of thunder and lightning. When she got past the BP station, a transformer must have exploded. Her car hit the pole. She suffered some bad injuries.

More on S.C. snakes

Though the calendar has now been flipped to the month of September and autumn is right around the corner, here in South Carolina it is still very much summer according to the thermometer. Days are getting shorter, but lower temperatures don't usually make it to South Carolina to signal the end of summer until well into October. Birds have begun their annual migrations south, but the heat and humidity that still lingers continues to keep snakes very active. Being exothermic, or cold-blooded as I was taught in elementary school, snakes take environmental warmth and warm themselves to activate processes ...
