The house has always been there. She will, most likely, always be there. She has never wavered from her foundation or from her purpose. She has always endured. She has reared our children, celebrated our joyous occasions, wept for our unfortunate circumstances, helped us bury our dead.

Mr. Sheheen has not answered questions regarding his positions on two critical issues: 1) How would you treat the attorney general's lawsuit to challenge the Obama health care issue? Would you de-fund the lawsuit moving forward or support it? and 2) Are you planning to reapply for the TARP funds that Gov Sanford refused? There are strings attached to the TARP funds: the states must spend it according to federal government prescription causing South Carolina to be "owned" by the federal government, thereby giving up states' rights?

Paul, a free-market advocate, wants to do away with the Internal Revenue Service and simplify the tax code.

But he is exactly right in saying the federal tax code is impossibly complex and onerous.

• It was good, if still mixed, news from KershawHealth a week ago that January's financials looked a bit better than they have recently. The healthcare organization still posted a loss for the month -- as it has every month for some time now -- but only of $84,000. Compare that to $902,000 in losses for October 2013 alone and that is very good news. KershawHealth has a long way to go to combat a projected $32 million in operational losses by Fiscal Year 2018, less than five years away. However, last week's meeting also revealed that the KershawHealth ...
