Letter: Was land purchase a mistake?

Kershaw County property details are a matter of public record. One can go online and find a lot of interesting facts. In the matter of the proposed purchase by Kershaw County Council of the 35.23 acres in district 277F, parcel Number 283-00-00-016, bordering U.S. 1 north of the Wateree River bridge, I am inclined to believe that a clerical error may have been made in an entry of selling price several years ago that has been brought forward under normal process and that entry may have clouded or confused the issue.

Letter: Pickleball is a great game

Pickleball, if you haven't heard of it, you most likely will. It's the up and coming racket ball game for all ages and abilities. I've heard many different stories as to how the game began; so, I won't go there. What I do know is that pickleball is a racket ball game that may be less demanding to participate in as the body gets older.

County is an efficient team

I write to commend our fine county staff. Team Kershaw, led by Mr. Carpenter, delivered a formidable one-two punch Tuesday night that foretells good things yet to come. It was clear that county staff stepped up to the task in budget years 2016-17 as challenging "years of project execution".

Education Oversight Committee needs major reality check

Imagine if the teacher of your child or grandchild or some other young person in your life told the class that no matter what grades were made on a given test, 30 percent of the class would fail. I feel very certain in saying that this would be viewed as unfair and arbitrary, and with good reason.

Eliminating corruption best way to stop violent tragedies

Tragic incidents such as just happened in Las Vegas will not nor cannot be solved by more gun control laws. It can and will only be solved until eliminating corruption in politics, which is visible in any job profession, within churches, schools, work places, and all types of government. It starts at the lowest level and goes all the way to the top, in cities, in countries and at state and federal levels.
