The just-no-vote crowd

Washington -- A debt crisis is a terrible thing to waste in a presidential election season, and Democrats and Republicans alike are responding on cue.

Veto session reveals differences

At the Governor's budget veto briefing, her Deputy Chief of Staff was tasked with explaining to the members of the legislature why the Governor vetoed roughly $105 million from the $5.8 billion General Fund budget and the entire $107 million Capital Reserve Appropriations bill.

A response -- Author Chris Crutcher

Some scandals won't sit still

It's hard for a social commentator to keep up with all of the legal, moral and political lessons offered up by the still-unfolding Dominique Strauss-Kahn sex mess. But the most important is this: Don't rush to judgment.

Obama's uncommon scold

An MSNBC commentator is in the doghouse over a mildly obscene on-air criticism of President Barack Obama. Fair enough. But, to me his language was less obscene than his suggestion that Obama was getting a too uppity with GOP budget negotiators.

Justice for Caylee in mother's hands now

I'm not God, so there's no way I can sit here and unequivocally say that I know Casey Anthony murdered her 2-year-old daughter back in 2008. No one really knows that, aside from Casey Anthony, little Caylee Anthony and God.

Colbert proves campaign laws a joke

Comedian and S.C. native Stephen Colbert has gained national fame from his unique brand of political humor on his Comedy Central TV show "The Colbert Report." His satirist style, however, sometimes crosses over from behind the television screen to the realities of American politics. One of Colbert's most notable forays into politics came in 2008 after he decided to run for president, but only in the S.C. primary. Colbert's intentions were to half-jokingly run as a "favorite son" of the state on both the Republican and Democratic platforms, but he eventually dropped out of the race.

Put these FTAs to work

Some Americans act as if Congress and the president have a jobs-making switch somewhere they can flip to help the economy. If only. No modern economy is that simple. And the factors that affect employment can be complex.

Legislators foil 'Trikki's' real intentions

Well, it wasn't Independence Day for Nikki Haley. Could there have been any harsher repudiation of the governor's agenda and tactics than what happened Wednesday night at the State House?

Listening to Dale’s advice

A while back, a messy problem loomed ahead. I don't like confrontation. If that makes me less than a person then consider me to be itty bitty. Life, I figure, is too short for squabbling. My motto is "whenever possible, step out of the way."

Photographer Edward T. Start

Recently an inquiry came to the South Caroliniana Library from the Adirondack Museum in Saranac Lake, N. Y., concerning an Edward T. Start (1867-1952) photograph in their collection. Along with the inquiry came a copy of the photograph and Start's obituary from the February 5, 1952, Adirondack Daily.

This is journalism?

I love my job. As harried as I can be sometimes, I really do love it. I think long-time readers of this column know that by now -- that I love to write stories about Kershaw County, especially in Camden, which has been my primary beat (along with healthcare) for 14 years. You know that I'm passionate about the S.C. Freedom of Information Act and that I truly believe it doesn't just benefit journalists like myself, but individual citizens like you.

Our local heroes

I was truly proud to be able to report during the past week an historical event right here in Camden. It was the naming of the I-20 bridge that crosses the Wateree River for Kershaw County's three Medal of Honor recipients. The Medal of Honor is the greatest and most prestigious award bestowed on those serving in the United States military and to receive it means you've done something exceptionally special, often at the cost of your life.

Who are those guys?

One of my favorite movies is the 1969 classic Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid; since it came out I've watched it probably 20 times.

Corporate tax returns should be public
