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.

Thanks from Historic Camden

The governing board of Historic Camden Revolutionary War Site would like to express its sincerest appreciation to Mayor Tony Scully and the members of Camden City Council for approving recommended changes to a much needed sewer project that crosses portions of our historic site. City Manager Mel Pearson, Public Works Director Tom Couch and Deputy Director Sam Davis are to be commended for working tirelessly with numerous individuals to find a solution to installing the sewer lines in a timely manner while protecting parts of the archaeologically rare and nationally significant colonial site of early Camden.

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 ...

What companies look for

An article in your March 28 edition covered (Ben) Connell's entry into the Kershaw County Council chairmanship race. He seems like a respectable, capable and credible young man. However, I would like to reflect on a statement credited to him in the article. He supposedly said premium recreation areas attract industries and the professionals who operate them. Further, these young professionals would be drawn to the area because you have something for their kids to do.

Bush v. Clinton?

In a political era in which presidential races drag on for years, not merely months, Kershaw County voters could well find themselves by the end of 2014 looking at a race between two recycled political families -- the Clintons and the Bushes. News reports indicate that Jeb Bush, former governor of Florida, is seriously considering a bid for the White House, inching away from the coy stance he's been taking. And Hillary Clinton has virtually paralyzed the Democrats' primary process, as nobody is willing to jump into a race until she decides whether she's going to run. If she ...
