I have enjoyed the Chronicle-Independent for years, especially the editorial pages. Our local paper has some very talented writers and I look forward to reading these columns each issue. I was appalled with Trevor Baratko's column in the April 13 paper. He is a very talented young man; however, my opinion of him as a person is completely changed now. Does he really think that the rules don't apply to everyone and that it is OK to lie as long as you "lie convincingly"? And the sarcasm of the article referring to the Masters did not go unnoticed ...

Across South Carolina, Democrats have had a tough go of it during the past decade. The party holds only one congressional seat and has no constitutional officers. Republicans control both houses of the General Assembly. It's a different story here in Kershaw County, as Rep. Laurie Slade Funderburk and Sen.
