Term limits

There are countless reasons that our system of government in Washington is broken so badly, but there's one concept -- it's in effect in many states, already – that would effect immediate change and would help solve our crisis in government: term limits. Of course it's not a new concept, but limiting people to a particular number of terms, whether in the House of Representatives or the Senate -- would help free many elected officials to make decisions based on what's best for the country rather than on getting re-elected.

Politics and law enforcement don't mix

I, along with most other Kershaw County residents, was surprised and stunned by Kershaw County Council's recent idea to shift control of the Kershaw County Sheriff's Office from the voters to themselves. I thought the idea alone was ridiculous. Then some councilmen raised the bar from ridiculous to ludicrous with explanations that their intent was to "…take the politics out of county law enforcement…" What?! Take the politics out of county law enforcement by having county politicians run it? And make no mistake, whatever is said now about control of the proposed county police department, it would be ...

The CNG

We're glad to see that automakers in the United States are getting serious about producing vehicles that run on compressed natural gas (CNG), a fuel that is readily available in this country and much cheaper than gasoline. It's estimated that the U.S. has more than a 100-year supply of natural gas presently on hand, and prices have been falling, as opposed to the costs of gasoline. And, of course, running vehicles with a native fuel lessens dependence on the Middle East and its volatile politics. As we pointed out recently, we're enthusiastic about the fuel-efficient diesel-powered ...

Parker: The mourning after

CHARLESTON, S.C. -- By all appearances Friday morning, as thousands lined the street waiting (and wilting) for hours in 90-degree heat to enter the funeral arena where President Obama was to deliver a eulogy for state Sen. Clementa Pinckney, racial unity seemed a comfortable fact of life.

Reader, wife support removing Confederate battle flag

Several years ago, my wife and I, along with our youngest son, his wife and their children, attended a Fourth of July celebration in Bath, Maine. Bath is a picturesque little city which only Maine seems capable of providing. It is also a seafaring town, home to the Bath Iron Works, where ships have slid down the ways for close to 200 years.

Reader: take advantage of 'living history'

I was browsing the internet looking at different sites listing historical events of the past 100 years and was surprised to see how much of history had been left off. So many events which have taken place during the past century which have been instrumental in the growth of this country have been left out of our history books and articles of today.
