My Brain on NASCAR - June 14, 2016

This week I'd like to say a few words about a guy no one has ever referred to -- in my presence, anyway -- as their favorite driver.

Matthews: Public safety in Kershaw County is at risk

Last month, a Cassatt couple woke up to a man standing over them with a sawed-off shotgun. He robbed them before fleeing. Days earlier he stuck his sawed-off shotgun in the face of a female clerk at an east Camden convenience store and robbed her. In April, he forced his way into a Camden home where he made a woman, with her kids, drive him to an ATM to get money. He threatened to shoot one of her children if she refused.

Noble: Bring Mexican political ethics to S.C.
