Be safe this Memorial Day

Memorial Day is one of the biggest holidays that are celebrated in our state. We saw an influx of traffic this weekend due to families traveling for the holiday weekend and an increase in motorcycles traveling back and forth to Myrtle Beach for the annual memorial weekend bike rally.

Noted and passed - May 27, 2013

On press freedoms, Obama races Nixon to bottom

Despite what you may hear from some of his more fevered critics, President Barack Obama's recent scandal-quakes don't appear to fall anywhere near the level of Richard Nixon's Watergate disaster. But by another Nixonian yardstick, trying to put a muzzle on press freedoms, Team Obama appears to have surged into the lead.

Obama scandals

By now you have probably heard on more than one occasion some representative of the Obama administration -- perhaps Jay Carney, the press secretary; or maybe Eric Holder, the attorney general; or maybe the president himself -- repeat words that have become almost a mantra in responding to the multiple issues that are dogging the White House: "It wouldn't be appropriate to comment on an ongoing investigation."

Moment of Nature - May 24, 2013
