Let's find a solution together

I always thought hospitality was freely given without even thinking about it by the one who gives. It seems odd to me that the word tax would even be combined with it. Sadly, taxes have become burdens that we pay out of a grudging obligation to governments who would have us believe they know what's best. We vote, hoping those we elect will help change things for the better and represent all fairly and judiciously.

Food for the Soul receives generous community support

On behalf of Food for the Soul, its executive committee and board of directors, thanks to all who participated in our "Pass the Plate" summer fundraising campaign.

Hurricane Irene

With Hurricane Irene having come and gone, and with Kershaw County and South Carolina having been spared, the second-guessers in other parts of the country are coming out of the woodwork. When it comes to hindsight, there's perhaps no area more fertile than weather -- specifically, severe storms. It's easy to assess blame after the fact, whether it's for lack of preparedness or over-reaction, and there is no shortage of people who are willing to do so.

• Here in Kershaw County, we don't think about bridges much, unless it's the spans crossing the Lynches and Wateree rivers on U.S. 1, I-20 and other roads. Many bridges in our county are small, made of wood or pipes used as culverts. They cross streams and branches of creeks and -- according to our recent two-part story -- not in the greatest shape. Some state-owned bridges are in the process of being repaired or replaced with state and/or federal funds. But many others are owned by the county. All but two currently open bridges that cross bodies of ...
