Nikki Haley was solid in Wednesday's inaugural address, and she appears determined to avoid the contentious relationship that existed between the General Assembly and the governor's office for the last eight years.

And second, Jeff Bridges is a good actor. I'm not a sophisticated enough movie maven to truly appreciate fine acting, but his performance as the down-and-out country singer in "Crazy Heart" was ...
My first Saturday night in office started at 8:00PM in the training room at the Sheriff's Office. I joined Sheriff's Deputies, Camden Police Officers, a couple of 16-year-old minors and two of my captains for a briefing by a Sheriff's Office investigator.

That was until last night, when Phoebe approached another dog that was on a leash and that dog attacked her.
