• USAirways, which has a major hub in Charlotte, is making a play for American Airlines, which is in bankruptcy, cutting a deal with American's unions that will give USAirways a step up in the merger it seeks. For Kershaw County travelers who choose to fly out of Charlotte rather than subject themselves to the restrictions of Columbia's limited flight schedules, that would be a great improvement, and we hope USAirways is able to pull its deal off.

A century of service

You find them in all walks of life. They might be playing outfield for the Philadelphia Phillies (Shane Victorino). Or hosting the show "Dirty Jobs" for the Discovery Channel (Mike Rowe). Or founding Wal-Mart (Sam Walton). Or even becoming president of the United States (Gerald Ford).

What reality TV doesn’t tell you about home remodeling

Everyone knows reality TV isn't actually reality, right? We know an hour in real life is never that entertaining. There is a lot of editing, slicing and dicing behind the scenes to put those shows together.

• Thanks to I-20, two U.S. highways and several state highways, we have a lot of commercial vehicles passing through Kershaw County on a daily basis. While most of those vehicles are likely carrying goods for sale here and elsewhere across the country, there's also a good chance hazardous materials are being trucked through as well. So, it's a good thing Lugoff Fire-Rescue (LF-R) and the Kershaw County Fire Service have joined forces to create a Special Operations Team (SOT) to deal with any "HazMat" accidents that may occur. According to LF-R Battalion Chief Chris Spitzer, the team ...

The love or hate of air conditioning

It's a funny thing. That's what Mama used to say when something baffled her. Like Mama, I prefer that things make common sense. Otherwise, I'll ponder, figure, study, and try to decipher that funny thing until it's somewhat sensible.

Soft skills

In early September, I attended a meeting of superintendents in Greenville. A major area of discussion was the development of a workforce that would attract sustainable industry to South Carolina and how K-12 education fits into this puzzle. To underscore this discussion, the meeting included a tour of the BMW plant in Spartanburg. Wow! This facility absolutely reflects what a 21st century workplace looks like and what many of our students will need to be prepared to enter. I talk a lot about preparing students for their future and not our past. The BMW tour reminded me why this is ...

Op-Ed: The penny sales tax

On Nov. 4, Kershaw County citizens will have the opportunity to vote on the Kershaw County School District facilities referendum. Because of legislation passed by the South Carolina General Assembly in 2014, voters will be able to decide whether or not a penny sales tax that would be collected for 15 years could be imposed in the county and used by the school district to fund the projects in the referendum.

Camden residents support Graham for city council

I want to voice my support for Jeffrey Graham in his pursuit of a seat upon Camden City Council. I think Jeffrey is a unique candidate with a perspective we need. He is a family man with young children, and because of this I think he can represent the needs of many other young families in the Camden area. While all of the current council members have important and impressive qualities, the direct representation of our younger generations is imperative, and with Walter Long leaving, we do not have such a voice on the council if not for Jeffrey Graham.

Reader supports Reuwer

I am supporting David Reuwer for probate judge in the coming election. In any election, voters must ask a couple of things: does the candidate know what he or she is doing, and does the candidate possess the proper attitude to best serve the people of Kershaw County. Well, Mr. Reuwer is a practicing lawyer and Elgin municipal judge experienced in probate matters including the new, revised probate code. Mr. Reuwer is a hardworking man dedicated to the protection, conservation, and celebration of the historical legacy of Kershaw County. He has a strong need to help others; it seems to ...

Reader: ‘vote no twice’

I see signs appearing throughout the county imploring you to "Vote Yes Twice" regarding the school referenda. If you favor tearing down perfectly good schools and Camden High's football stadium, construction new ones to replace them, to the tune of $130 million plus interest; and if you want to pay higher taxes on everything you buy, then by all means vote yes.
