That literally was true since I planned to scan four years of a newspaper to search for a single fact. Since that time the staff's standard question to me is, "which haystack do you want to examine today?"

An article in your March 28 edition covered (Ben) Connell's entry into the Kershaw County Council chairmanship race. He seems like a respectable, capable and credible young man.

Further, these young professionals would be drawn to the area because you have something for their kids to do.
