Youth Arbitration Program brings fresh start

The voucher scam

The beginning of the new session of the South Carolina General Assembly will undoubtedly bring renewed efforts to pass school voucher legislation.

Proponents package it differently from year to year, but the basic premise when you strip away the slick marketing is that public funds would be used to support private schools.

The sound of (mostly) silence

Last April, I wrote an article called "Switching frequencies" about how local agencies were on track to meet federal emergency communication mandates. In short -- and this is a somewhat complex issue -- local agencies all across the country needed to meet "interoperability" and "narrowbanding" requirements by Dec. 31.

Stop the virus of Chicago violence

For once, Chicago has beaten New York in a competition that the Windy City had no desire to win. Chicago ended 2012 with more homicides than the Big Apple. No cheers for that.
