Fine -- no points

The state appears on the verge of legitimizing a traffic ticket system that has existed on the gray market for years in many municipalities -- writing tickets and collecting fines while not counting the violations against people's traffic records, thus saving them the higher insurance premiums that often result with speeding violations. A bill in the House of Representatives would allow police to write a warning ticket to speeders who are going less than 10 miles per hour over the limit, with the state and cities sharing the revenue.

A story of praise and thanks

Our news media is so full of negatives, hopelessness and tragedy. This is a story praising the goodness of God through others. On Jan. 12 about 7:30 p.m., my husband came in the den and announced that he wasn't feeling real good. In questioning him all he could tell me was a bad case of indigestion -- no nausea, no pain or no sweating. We live at Lake Wateree next door to Vince (a Methodist minister) and Nancy (a nurse) Halter. I called Nancy, and Charles described his symptoms. Calmly she told him that it could just be ...

Fox's revolving-door pols

Would I ever consider running for office? Amazingly, I sometimes have been asked. No way, I respond. Why would I want to put myself through all of the abuse that I put candidates through?

Kershaw County is at a crossroads

Several weeks ago, while at the ALPHA center talking with Paul Napper, we discussed the problems his agency and the Sheriff's Office deal with, with regard to substance abuse. We talked about the families in our county that are being destroyed by drug abuse. We talked about the rise in incidents of criminal domestic violence caused, in part, by drugs. We also talked about the dubious distinction Kershaw County has in that we have the highest DUI fatality rate in the State of South Carolina. I brought up the issue of the extreme number of housebreakings and overall stealing ...

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.

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 ...
