It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas!

Our Public Works Department Street and Electric crews have been diligently working to decorate the city for Christmas. I know it's not even Thanksgiving yet, but it takes time for us to deck the halls for December. Thanks to their efforts we'll have decorated light poles throughout the downtown and several lit Christmas trees.

Business, innovation and the four states of South Carolina

This week, I had occasion to be in all four parts of South Carolina, talking with a wide variety of business people about innovation, our state and its future. What they said was both extremely encouraging and extremely discouraging.

Sharing the roads

Safety seems to be one of those things we talk about and know to be important, but don't really consider until it has been compromised. At least, in my experience, that tends to be the way it goes. This summer, when I was living in Mount Pleasant, a close friend of mine was part of a situation where his safety was really compromised. I was recently reminded of this situation and wanted to share it with others.

The White House mess

WASHINGTON -- Let's recap: if you like your insurance policy, you can keep it. No, wait. If you liked your policy, it was probably worthless anyway. Scratch that. If your junk policy was canceled and you still want it, you can keep it. Er, get it back.

‘Flexibility,’ or throwing the baby out with the bath water?

I've been doing this work for a long time, almost 39 years. I've seen probably every educational fad, movement, silver bullet, innovation, reform, program and change you can think of, and then some. The flavor of the month in South Carolina is elimination of minimum standards and quality control in the name of "flexibility." This "reform" comes up every so often as the grand solution to solve all of our problems. On the surface, it's not a bad concept. But because it's rarely done with some level of measure or common sense, it usually falls on ...

Payments deferred

Many of the most important occupations receive the smallest salaries. For example, policemen are notoriously underpaid, as are firefighters. Teachers, entrusted with children, the most valuable items for both the parents and the world, receive the least for the most. I remember my first salary to be $2,785 a year! In spite of the fact that I was certainly better looking, more energetic, idealistic and gullible enough to think all students wanted an education and bringing an "A" diploma and teaching certification, the payment was small in terms of money. However, little did I expect or anticipate that the ...

Obamacare’s gift to the GOP
