Editorial: Alternative power

Older Kershaw County residents will remember the oil embargo of the 1970s, when there were long lines at service stations here and across the nation. Since then, there's been a never-ending quest for the United States to become more energy-independent and to develop clean, alternative sources of power.

Letter: Chamber survey critic responds
