Bill Clinton at the UN applauds Ebola success

“As of today, I am officially Ebola free,” declared former President Bill Clinton before the Economic and Social Council of the United Nations (ECOSOC). Clinton recently visited Liberia, but he arrived three days before the country was officially declared free of the Ebola virus (May 9), and so he had to go through all the official protocols to be sure he was Ebola free before being allowed in public.

Editorial: S.C. highways

If you've done any highway driving in South Carolina recently -- and most people have -- then you're aware of the pathetic condition of many roads throughout the Palmetto State. In numerous places, they're literally crumbling, with chunks of concrete or asphalt falling off onto the shoulders. Potholes, which are not only dangerous but also have the potential to cause expensive damage to cars, are common. Everybody agrees something needs to be done to repair the state's highway system, but the government in Columbia is as dysfunctional on this issue as Washington is on many matters.

Issues with airplanes

This weekend, I will be traveling via airplane for the first time alone. Needless to say, I'm pretty nervous about the whole ordeal. For starters, I'm terrified of heights. I'm talking, if I see a photo of someone skydiving or one of those "cool" pictures in National Geographic where a person is scaling a cliff, my heart rate automatically speeds up and I feel nauseous, bordering on a panic attack, and have to turn the page as quickly as possible. I get nervous looking out the window of a third-story building window. If I ever went to ...

End the lifeline

If you'd like a specific example of a federal program run amok -- and there are too many to count -- you need look no further than Lifeline, which was begun during the Reagan administration to provide free phones to people. It was originally envisioned as a method of subsidizing landline phone service for low-income Americans. But in the way that federal programs seem to always do, it has ballooned beyond all reason, now providing free or reduced-price cell phones to millions of people. From its humble beginnings, the program's annual cost has swelled to $1.6 billion. It has ...

State needs to meet legal obligations

I was very interested in the issue raised by Camden City Council member Alfred Mae Drakeford at the recent (Kershaw County) Chamber (of Commerce) legislative forum. Ms. Drakeford correctly stated that the state of South Carolina is not providing the legally required level of funding for local governments. I would point out that our state is also falling well short in terms of its legal obligation for the funding of public schools.

Immigration discussion begins

By the time you read this, a group of United States Senators will likely have introduced the first significant proposal on immigration reform in more than 20 years. While it is far too early to comment on its content -- the group has been fairly secretive as to details -- the simple fact that such a high profile group will be offering a proposal is noteworthy. And it offers a good opportunity to talk, generally about immigration.
