Humorist Will Rogers once said he didn't belong to an organized political party; he was a Democrat. That appears particularly true now that the S. C. Democratic Party's primary for the new seventh Congressional District seat is mired in controversy over whether or not the votes for a candidate who had withdrawn should be counted. Complicating the situation is that the fate of the favored son of the party's hierarchy hangs in the balance as officials – and, later, probably lawyers – try to unravel the mess.
Anyone who boasts of the slightest degree of compassion must pray for the president of these United States, whose plight is beyond description.

Without increasing your property taxes, the city has made significant progress by assessing requirements and strategically planning without taxing and spending.

Every day I ride down Hwy. 1, I see a helpless dog on the side of the rode with its ribs sticking out from lack of nutrients.
We've always believed the United States government works best when power is divided -- that is, with a president from one party and a Congress controlled by the opposite party. As of now, of course, we have a Democratic president and a split Congress, with the House of Representatives controlled by Republicans and the Senate dominated by Democrats. There are multiple forecasting models out there for the upcoming election, with most of them giving the GOP a better-than-even chance of gaining a majority in the Senate while retaining control of the House.
