County council salary increases

A the Kershaw County Council meeting Tuesday, June 14, Sammie Tucker – who represents the Charlotte Thompson precinct in which I reside -- made a motion to "adjust" council's salaries from $10,000 to $13,000 a year. It included "adjusting" the vice chairman's salary (his own position) from $11,000 to $15,000 a year. Do the math – that amounts to a 30 percent increase in salary, plus benefits. The motion passed by a 4-3 margin. The three opponents were Stephen Smoak, Jimmy Jones and Chairman Gene Wise. These three members considered the citizens' pocketbooks more than their own.

Remembering the trains

"Down in the valley, the valley so low, for late in the evening hear the train blow." Who of the pre-World War II generation does not remember that old folk song or sang it? And who of that generation does not remember the plaintive wailing of a distant train whistle? Those are a few of the nostalgic memories most of my generation have as we look back on the bygone times when trains and railroads played a much more prominent role in our lives.
