First, let me say there are some good politicians out there, but I'm not sure they overweigh the poor ones. When you speak with me, you know where you stand. I don't sugarcoat and I'm not going to tell an untruth. However, the folks from the Kershaw County school board seem to forget there is more to Kershaw County than Camden and Lugoff. They need to learn more about the rest of the county they represent.

Most of us are ready, willing and able to take politicians and other leaders to task when things are less than our expectations would have them be. Unfortunately, all too often the criticism is warranted. Unfairly, we are less willing to be complimentary when plaudits are due.
