Another 'good ole boy' lawsuit

Well let's get these ridiculous and embarrassing law suits going again. Get them back on course! They are such a good use for our country's image and above all, a great way to spend our tax dollars. Our county needed a sheriff change and now that Jim Matthews has become our sheriff and seems to be doing all the right things for all of us, he seems to have upset our country's "good ole boys."

Alzheimer's

More than five million Americans have Alzheimer's Disease, the tragic malady that robs people of their ability to function mentally. Countless others -- family members and friends -- are affected by the dread disease, and researchers have been unable to make significant progress in fighting Alzheimer's. It has long been suspected that a build-up in the brain of a sticky substance called beta amyloid plays a part in the disease, but such hypotheses haven't been proved and treatment and prevention options haven't improved much.

A sad day

It is a sad day in America, which is supposed to be land of the free and home of the brave when so many people have voted for no prayer in schools and no National Anthem and if they do they wind up getting sued by someone has never had a personal relationship with my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. We even have a book, The Holy Bible, to go by, and I want to say to the people who deny him in front of other people. The Bible says and this is Jesus speaking "If you deny me, I ...

Campaign ads

It should come as no surprise to Kershaw County voters that when it comes to November's presidential election, money is going to be the name of the game -- specifically, money to spend on advertising, much of it negative attack ads denigrating either Mitt Romney or President Obama, whichever the case may be. Ironically, voters here in South Carolina are being largely spared the endless spate of advertising drivel because the Palmetto State is considered firmly in Romney's camp, with Obama given little or no chance of winning here. Similarly, voters in states like Vermont and Oregon, where the ...

Transparency

Operating under the simple premise that citizens have a right to know as much as they can about how their government officials operate, and how that affects governmental agencies as a whole, we almost always favor laws and regulations which require transparency in government. Transparency, of course, is an overused word, but it basically means that government agencies must operate in a way that allows citizens to observe what's happening, and even to have input about what's taking place.

Sheriff responds to firearms discharge ordinance decision

The committee to study whether or not Kershaw County should enact some type of firearms discharge ordinance finally came back with its finding. As I fully expected, there will be no ordinance of any kind to deal with this growing problem. William Tetterton, a criminal defense attorney, former prosecutor and friend of mine chaired this committee. Mr. Tetterton was against any kind of firearms discharge ordinance from the beginning, so it seems a little disingenuous that a man who was strongly opposed to any firearms discharge ordinance would chair a panel deciding on whether or not one should be enacted.
