Noted and passed -- July 18, 2011

• The suit filed by former Kershaw County Sheriff Steve McCaskill against present Sheriff Jim Matthews is a messy situation that will cost county taxpayers money. Libel laws are written so that people who hold themselves up to scrutiny -- in other words, almost all elected officials -- have very difficult tasks in winning such suits; they must usually prove there is malice involved, which is difficult to do. At the same time, Matthews has certainly made uncomplimentary comments about McCaskill. This matter could end up being expensive and unpleasant for lots of people.

Playing GODD again?

Another "done deal"? Is this where we are headed again? I certainly hope not. This YMCA "deal" is another prime example of the "Government of the Done Deal" – GODD! Our city leaders are playing GODD once again. What has happened to a government of the people, by the people, for the people?
