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 ...

Feature photo: In another time

Students in Sharon White's second block World History class at Lugoff-Elgin High School concluded their study of the Enlightenment Period by attending White's Chocolate House.

Rec alternatives accomplish same goal

For several months I have followed the debate about a new YMCA in Camden. To date, however, only City Council and the director of the YMCA in Columbia have formulated a plan to build and operate a new facility here. There are possible alternatives. Therefore, I am proposing the following as a means to accomplish the same objective:

Gullible and guilty

Those of us who jump for joy when we hear that Governor Haley is deeply concerned about education and is planning to dedicate $160 million in new spending for education might consider, as we bow heads in hope and tenuous gratitude, that such concern on her part is coming awfully late but just in time for her possible re-election. Better late than never? Perhaps! But better earlier, for sure. The S.C. education budget has been reduced for the last three years by more than the proposed budget raises -- $110 million in her first year and $140 million stimulus money ...
