In the first round, Wofford played BYU valiantly before falling; nevertheless, it was another great season for Wofford and we offer ...

House passes short-sighted budget

Last week, the House of Representatives approved a proposed state government budget for Fiscal Year 2011-2012 by adopting and sending to the Senate H.3700, this year's general appropriations bill, and H.3701, the joint resolution making appropriations from the capital reserve fund. The proposed $5.4 billion budget includes widespread cuts for state government agencies made necessary by the declines in state revenue in recent years and by the absence of federal stimulus funds that have been used to help offset shortfalls. Evidence of economic recovery can be found in the availability this year of $350 million above ...

Reader: focus on dog owners, not breeds

Regarding your editorial in the Nov. 14 C-I regarding "Pit Bulls," I was disappointed that you chose to use the two recent incidents in Kershaw County as an opportunity to condemn a particular breed of dog, instead of focusing attention on the actual problem, which is the lack of responsible pet ownership.

These include measures that hold owners of all dogs accountable for properly housing, supervising and controlling their dogs ...
