Column: YOU have the right to know
Placeholder Image
It’s Sunshine Week across the U.S., including right here in Kershaw County, S.C. This is the week the media -- newspapers, especially -- devote to reminding you, the public, that government information is yours to seek, not just ours in our professional lives as journalists. You have the right to know how much taxpayer money is being spent on particular projects. You have the right to know whether a public body is going into an executive, or closed-door, session to discuss something the S.C. Freedom of Information Act allows to be discussed in such sessions.
