Here in Kershaw County, we're like other Americans who live in a world in which we have to prove who we are.

Yet U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder has blocked a South Carolina law requiring voters to show picture IDs when they go to the polls to ...
Recently, my mother-in-law passed away. On Jan. 1st, we had her funeral at Powers Funeral Home in Lugoff.

I grew up in Camden and as long as I can remember, our policemen stood with ...
