District 1 Candidate makes case for candidacy
web posted April 29, 2008
Dear Editor,
I am running as a republican for the Edgefield County District 1 County Council seat.   The residents of Edgefield County have a choice this year.  Four of the five council seats are up for re-election in the upcoming election. Over the past few years I have questioned the reasoning behind many of the county council decisions. The reason I decided to run for this office is that I believe the council needs a new perspective.  The council needs new opinions and members that are not afraid to stand up for what is right, fair and honest. Many times it seems that council votes are based on the good ‘ole boy system and not logical, realistic and factual information.

GUEST COLUMN By: Mike Casey
Edgefield County EMA Director

web posted April 3, 2008
After reading the guest editorial by Bob Ramsey (Edgefield County Process For FY 08-09) I feel compelled to respond. In reference to certain parts of his editorial I find that Mr. Ramsey has in some instances misstated the situation. As Emergency Preparedness Director for Edgefield County I find this inaccuracy alarming. Not only does it misrepresent the true situation but such mishandling of facts only serves to confuse and in some cases unnecessarily alarm the citizens of our county.

Edgefield  County  Budget  Process  For  FY 2008-2009
Guest Editorial By: Bob Ramsey
web posted April 2, 2008
GUEST EDITORIAL – The dogwood trees and azaleas are blooming, the yellow pollen is in the air, and the days are getting longer!  All of these things are “acts of nature” and occur routinely every year.  However, another activity takes place at this time of the year, and it has nothing to do with Mother Nature or the Masters Golf Tournament.  This “other activity” is much more important because it directly affects each of us residents of Edgefield County in a much more personal way!  It is the beginning of “The Edgefield County Annual Budget Process!”  And this “process” has been likened  “to making pork sausage” – a little bit of everything goes into it at the beginning, and what comes out at the end sometimes has no resemblance to the “ingredients” that went in at the beginning -  and it always gives some a bad case of “heartburn!”
