Romney's pre-emptive strike

PALM BEACH, Fla. -- Sitting under the lush palms and blue skies of the richest Americans' favorite resort -- during off-season when the rich wouldn't be caught dead here, I hastily add -- I naturally couldn't wait to watch Mitt Romney's PowerPoint presentation on health care.

Late session business

Usually around the end of May the House and the Senate prepare for the end of session. Before the General Assembly can leave for the year, a budget must be passed. The State Fiscal Year ends on June 30. The Senate is currently working on its version of the budget. The House and Senate versions will be worked out in conference committee and brought before both chambers for a vote. The budget will then go to the Governor. The General Assembly makes arrangements to be in session in order to receive and act on any gubernatorial vetoes. In addition to ...

A plea for better junk on TV

Fifty years ago this week, then Federal Communications Chairman Newton Minow famously skewered the nation's daily television programming as "a vast wasteland." Today it is still largely a wasteland, in my view, because that's mostly what people want.

What bin Laden, Geronimo shared in common

Native American leaders are upset that Geronimo's name was used as code for Osama bin Laden. I respect their concern, but I don't think this particular reference is the insult that tribal leaders think it is.

City budget process: look back, look ahead and plan

As Camden City Council moves past first reading of the 2011-2012 budget and on to second reading May 24th, it is important for our community to understand how we budget and where our priorities originate.

A time for optimism

It seems you can't open a newspaper or turn on the television these days without being clobbered with "bad news" -- news about tragic natural disasters, sky-rocketing gas prices, national unemployment rates that continue to climb, and political strife in Washington. It's an unfortunate fact that positive things are overlooked too often.

A government union shakedown

"Raise our taxes!" Can you imagine chanting such a slogan at a public rally? Neither could most Americans.

The banality of triumph

NEW YORK -- It seems nearly heretical to say so, but the termination of Osama bin Laden feels oddly anti-climactic.

Welcome to Paybackistan

It was a bit startling to watch crowds of mostly college-aged youths raucously celebrating in front of the White House after President Barack Obama reported the death of Osama bin Laden.

bin Laden takedown victory for all Americans

For those of you saying that the bin Laden takedown was not an "Obama" win, you're right. It was an American win. However, former President Bush, former Vice President Cheney, senators Graham and DeMint and even Rush Limbaugh have all congratulated Obama. He should be credited for maintaining the policies that continued the search and giving the order that resulted in Sunday night's win for the American people.

A very good year!

A few weeks back, I heard two high school students talking about the upcoming prom and other end-of-the-year activities. It doesn't seem possible, but the year has flown by. In spite of all the challenges our community, state, and nation continue to face because of the economy, it's been a very good year in the Kershaw County School District! I thought I'd spend a little time this month touching on a few of the countless highlights of this year.

Pride and humility

It has become somewhat of an art for me, that of studying Southern culture and deciphering what makes us different from others as well as downright peculiar among ourselves.

The storytellers of Dillon County

Our family has spent many a pleasant summer day with several families from the Dillon area and the experience is always enjoyable and the manner in which they address their friends, neighbors and kinfolk is like taking a step back in the "Old South." Everyone seems to have a prefix or you are a tourist just stopping by.

America still has a long way to go

There is no longer any doubt that America still has a long way to go before it can say that it has grown beyond the prejudices and fear and tragic cycle of action and reaction when it comes to relations between blacks and whites.
