Reassessment inconsistencies

Most people are very upset about the recent property tax assessments including myself. After reading the comments of County Assessor Randy Roberts and Deputy Assessor Mark Griffiths it sounds like the excuses have already started to justify the increases. Their comments of " location, location, location" and "having unique housing markets in Camden" must be very specific in these markets.

Got game?

I am not ashamed to admit that, at the instant the ref blows his final whistle and the scoreboard flaunts her last digits, a palpable degree of sadness, of disappointment comes over me like a dark cloud stealing the sun's warmth on a winter day. Reality sets in. Football season is over. The rivalries and intensity, the festivities and friends, the tradition -- all will be missed until next season. And I'm not alone. For many, it's about playing the game but, in more, watching the game. The game, defined one way as "a physical competition conducted according ...

Medical marijuana

Both Democrats and Republicans in South Carolina will have advisory questions on their June primary ballots -- votes that will not be binding but are intended simply to provide some feeling for what Palmetto State residents are thinking about particular issues. As you would guess, such questions often revolve around issues particularly important to one party or another, and they're sometimes done to help provide leverage for the parties to push certain projects.

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 ...
