Why a Y now?

I, like many others, have listened, watched and read about this YMCA/sports complex. It all started with a real estate listing on 1/7/2011, a contract on 2/7/2011 and a closing date later in March. Wow! That was a fast real estate transaction. Discontent and suspicions started then and have continued. Shortly after the closing, there was talk of a possible YMCA partnering with Columbia.

Braves out

The many thousands of Atlanta Braves fans here in Kershaw County are no doubt hanging their heads in despair after the team blew a 10-and-a-half game wild-card lead in little more than a month to end up missing the National League playoffs. Ironically, the Boston Red Sox had a similar run of futility, failing to hang on to a nine-game wild-card lead they held Sept. 4. The Braves and the Red Sox share one common thread: they're both regional franchises, with Atlanta commanding huge hoards of fans in the South and the Red Sox the favorite of nearly every ...

The issue of road funding -- or, to put it slightly differently, the question of how South Carolina should fix its broken road system -- is now a constant topic in politics and the media. A fair number of state lawmakers have therefore begun to advocate what politicians always advocate when they don't want to make tough decisions about the budget: raising taxes, specifically the fuel tax.
