Phillips: Take the money and run

Here in the Chronicle-Independent newsroom, we’re kind of shaking our collective head about the news which broke Tuesday about the early-morning heist of a complete automatic teller machine (ATM) from Mid Carolina Credit Union in Lugoff. The thief or thieves apparently used a large, stolen piece of equipment to rip the ATM from its concrete base and load it into or onto some sort of vehicle, almost surely a truck, given an ATM’s size and weight.

Wilson: Fighting back against food stamp fraud

Every day, in every area of our state, hardworking South Carolina taxpayers are being robbed. They are not held up at gunpoint and their homes are not burglarized. But, they are the victims of theft just the same. Criminals are stealing federal funds and using that money for their personal benefit. They are committing fraud against the food stamp program. In fact, they pocket more than $2 million of your tax dollars every year in South Carolina alone.

Cahn: ‘Madam Secretary’ is terrific TV

From 1999 to 2006, I tuned in to every episode of “The West Wing” starring Martin Sheen. It was one of the smartest shows I’ve ever watched with a superb cast and excellent writing. Like every television show, it had its ups and downs. Its detractors felt it was too idyllic and -- being an Aaron Sorkin product, like “The Newsroom” in more recent years -- too preachy.

Phillips: The times, they are a-changin’

OK, so the time changed nearly two weeks ago, but this week’s installment of my thoughts and musings is about the recent time change and the proverbial “extra hour of daylight” we get to enjoy from now until autumn.

Richardson: Spring fever brings summer bounty

The daffodils are nodding their pretty yellow heads all over town. To me, they are the harbingers of spring, blooming long before the weather is really warm. They give us hope the warm days really will return soon. In my yard, they pop up in the bed by my yard’s Victorian cast iron fence -- in the bed I meant to transform into a perennial cottage garden wonderland. Twenty-one years ago, when we moved in, I dug a vegetable plot in the back yard and the long border bed out front. Back then, when I was doing historic preservation consulting ...
