It’s time for labor changes

Our Republican elected representative in our state and across American is not a friend of the working class. The sad truth is that our state is a place that assures workers cheap labor and the freedom not to join a union. As a condition of employment, it is a state where workers work for less and depend on the "good will" of their employer for a decent pay.

'Purity pledge'

There are Republicans in South Carolina -- and across the nation, for that matter -- who are amazingly adept at finding new ways to shoot themselves in the foot. But GOP officials in Laurens County went to a new level of innovation when they passed a "purity pledge" requiring those who plan to run in this year's primary to adhere to a set of rules governing their social behavior and mores.

Let court resolve hospitality tax issue

It seems that the City of Camden wants to have a "Y" or a sports complex that is against the will of a good many voters. Not only does the City Council want to disregard the petition of these voters after all criteria was met and the proper fashion of following the request of the council, these petitioners are being ignored as if there was never a mention for scrapping it by anyone having a disagreement. And now there's the enlistment of the County Council to join with the City Council and build such an endeavor and ignore all ...

Now the rubber meets the road

November 4 is past, and statewide elections have been decided. As I have discussed in earlier columns, I am always intrigued, and even a little amused, with the amount of rhetoric that is aimed at education during election time. Now that the votes have been cast, there are a lot of important educational issues hanging in the air that will need to be resolved by newly elected office holders. The decisions made will have significant and lasting impact.
