Personally I don't like lying! I made remarks to my brother (now deceased) about Obama lying during the last presidential campaign! His answer was politicians have been lying since the very beginning of politics! This may be true! My mom told me many years ago, (be sure your sins will find you out). I don't like lies or lying and would not vote for a Democrat often as I know now!
Among other "awesome news" about Paul Ryan, as my son would call it, we have learned that Mitt Romney's running mate was voted prom king and "biggest brown noser" by his high school classmates. Obviously, he was destined for success in politics.

It all began with a letter penned in 1953. By then the writer was 70 years old and he was answering an inquiry from Judge Allison P. DuBose of Camden. The letter from Inman F. Eldredge (1883-1963) was in the Camden Archives and Museum's vertical file on the Hobkirk Inn. I was working on the Camden Gardens exhibit and the Hobkirk Inn was one of the gardens in the exhibit -- so I "found" Inman on the way to looking for other things. His father and mother owned and operated the Hobkirk Inn during the heyday of the "Winter Colony ...

What does is a commitment to community involvement, which Deal has in spades, working with the Camden Jaycees, Kershaw County Chamber of Commerce, Community Medical Clinic, Fine Arts Center of Kershaw County, the United Way and more. As for volunteerism, we can't imagine a more worthy recipient for the Dallas ...

When the Joint Replacement Center at KershawHealth opened last month, it was a truly collaborative effort resulting in significant benefits for those having total joint replacement surgery.

They will return to the things that mean the most to them -- home, family, work, and favorite activities -- sooner and further along in their recovery than before. Already, those who have been through the new program are excited about the change. They recognize the ...
