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.

What companies look for

An article in your March 28 edition covered (Ben) Connell's entry into the Kershaw County Council chairmanship race. He seems like a respectable, capable and credible young man. However, I would like to reflect on a statement credited to him in the article. He supposedly said premium recreation areas attract industries and the professionals who operate them. Further, these young professionals would be drawn to the area because you have something for their kids to do.

Bush v. Clinton?

In a political era in which presidential races drag on for years, not merely months, Kershaw County voters could well find themselves by the end of 2014 looking at a race between two recycled political families -- the Clintons and the Bushes. News reports indicate that Jeb Bush, former governor of Florida, is seriously considering a bid for the White House, inching away from the coy stance he's been taking.
