There’s a new sheriff’s office in town

Tuesday night I attended the Kershaw County Sheriff Office's community update in the West Wateree area. I want to echo what one of your readers expressed some time ago. We are indeed blessed to have Sheriff Matthews and his committed deputies protecting us. I have lived in Elgin for 13 years. Several of my neighbors and I have been victims of home invasions or car break-ins. Over the years, I have watched little, peaceful Elgin begin an evolution into the Wild, Wild West, but there is truly a new sheriff in town!

Noted and passed -- Feb. 27, 2012

• A recent news story indicated that this year's mild winter had confused plants and animals alike. Flowering shrubs and trees seem to think that it's already spring, and humans are sniffling with allergies which don't normally show up until late March or April. But we'd wager that nearly everyone in Kershaw County has taken great pleasure in the lack of cold weather and the unseasonably warm days which have allowed people to be outdoors and enjoying themselves. By this time in February, we're usually weary of scraping frost off windshields and wearing heavy coats, but ...

House busy with budget, bills

This past week the House of Representatives returned to Columbia following a week of furlough. Each week the House takes on furlough saves the state $50,000. The House will take two more weeks of furlough in April. The House has repeatedly passed bills to shorten the legislative session only for them to die in the Senate. The House has taken upon itself to effectively shorten its session through furloughs because House members believe that we can accomplish our objectives in fewer weeks and save taxpayer money.

Editorial: Fringe groups

We're not too high on elected officials who hew to positions on the fringes. Like many, we believe adherence to strict political philosophies is one of the primary reasons for the polarization in American politics today. There just aren't many lawmakers in Washington today who are willing to sit down and work things out despite their political differences, as there were for decades.
