Tax facts

Voters in Kershaw County and nationwide have been bombarded with news during the past few days regarding the compromise between the Obama administration and Congressional Republicans on tax policy. Democrats in Washington, who for nearly two years have been accusing the GOP of obstructionism, are the people in this instance who are throwing up roadblocks.

KershawHeath provides outstanding care

Having recently had surgery at KershawHealth, I would like to compliment our hospital and staff. How fortunate we are in Kershaw County to have a facility that provides excellent, compassionate care. What could have been an uncomfortable Thanksgiving Day was actually a pleasant experience thanks to the staff at KershawHealth. Each person I encountered was careful and caring, and each was absolutely committed to the job at hand, and certainly to the patient.

I love this time of the year! Riding through town, seeing the Christmas Lights, and seeing the hustle-and-bustle of holiday shopping, but most of all, I love the Christmas music. I don't know what it is about that type of music, but it seems to always put people in a better mood. After doing some reading on traditional Christmas music, I found some very interesting facts.

A time to govern

WASHINGTON -- New Hampshire Republican Judd Gregg could reel off a list of problems with the debt-reduction blueprint produced by the president's fiscal responsibility commission -- beginning with the fact that, as Gregg sees it, the plan doesn't do nearly enough to reduce the debt: By 2020, in the unlikely event that all the recommendations are enacted, the debt would still stand at an unhealthy share of gross domestic product, between 60 percent and 70 percent.

A first step

Kershaw County voters, like their counterparts throughout the county, should take heart in the fact that Democrats and Republicans finally came together in Washington Monday to forge what looks to be a workable compromise on economic matters. They came up with a measure that will keep income rates at their current pace for another two years and will also extend unemployment taxes; the measure will also reduce the payroll tax on Social Security, instantly putting money into the pockets of working Americans as the country tries to pull out of its long economic tailspin.
