Matthew Perry

It is difficult for children in Kershaw County today to even imagine the Jim Crow era, when African-Americans had to use separate bathrooms, couldn't eat in most restaurants, endured poor facilities and often had a difficult time even voting. That was just a bit more than a generation ago, and one of the towering figures who fought such injustices was Matthew Perry, who died earlier this week at age 89.

YMCA not county's concern

I have taken no position regarding the YMCA controversy because I don't live in the city limits. I do pay taxes to the city by virtue of shopping and frequenting restaurants in the city, and while I believe purchasing property and constructing a YMCA facility is a far cry from the highest and best use of the citizens' dollars and is as unwise as the Town Green, still I felt objection should come from residents of the city.

Sweet ride

Randy McCoy, with Randy's Tire and Lube in Lugoff, is the new owner of a 1972 Chevelle SS 454. Famed NASCAR driver Mark Martin surprised McCoy with the car during a July 20 celebration at CarQuest Auto Parts in Lugoff.

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 ...
