Head to the polls

Politically, it's a bit of an unusual year here in Kershaw County and South Carolina. Lieutenant Governor Glenn McConnell is stepping down to become the president of the College of Charleston, and those in line to succeed him say they don't want the thankless and mostly meaningless job. But in the meantime, there are four candidates running for that post in the June Republican primary, so it obviously appeals to somebody. We suspect there is the lingering hope that becoming lieutenant governor is a stepping stone to the governor's office, although it hasn't been so in ...

Noted and passed - May 19, 2014

• Polo. For many, the word immediately conjures up the phrase "the sport of kings." It's origins date back to, possibly, as early as the 6th century B.C. in Persia, apparently used as a training game for the king's guard or other elite cavalry units.

Visitors from around the world gathered to watch polo matches on that field for the next 50 years. Interest waned in the latter half of the 20th century ...
