A starting point

Rep. Paul Ryan has issued a plan for returning this country to fiscal sanity, and it includes cuts to Medicare and Medicaid. The Wisconsin lawmaker's proposal would slash about $5 trillion in spending over the next decade, making it by far the most intensive plan presented to date to try to deal with the country's unsustainable spending practices. But predictably, potential presidential candidates have had little to say, recognizing the political volatility of cutting entitlement programs that people have come to rely on.

She wrote many gardening columns for various newspapers, including Kershaw County's Chronicle-Independent, and authored two books, "Earthly Delights" and "Down to Earth: Practical Thoughts for Passionate Gardeners." She was also a very special friend to me. We would often visit public and private gardens together. Every flower she saw was her "favorite," and she just had to have it in her garden. Because she lived close to me, I visit her garden often. Walking through her garden ...

It's the women, stupid

Transparency

Operating under the simple premise that citizens have a right to know as much as they can about how their government officials operate, and how that affects governmental agencies as a whole, we almost always favor laws and regulations which require transparency in government. Transparency, of course, is an overused word, but it basically means that government agencies must operate in a way that allows citizens to observe what's happening, and even to have input about what's taking place.

Sheriff responds to firearms discharge ordinance decision

The committee to study whether or not Kershaw County should enact some type of firearms discharge ordinance finally came back with its finding. As I fully expected, there will be no ordinance of any kind to deal with this growing problem. William Tetterton, a criminal defense attorney, former prosecutor and friend of mine chaired this committee. Mr. Tetterton was against any kind of firearms discharge ordinance from the beginning, so it seems a little disingenuous that a man who was strongly opposed to any firearms discharge ordinance would chair a panel deciding on whether or not one should be enacted.
