My husband and I would like to thank Dr. Tommy Joseph for his many years of selfless service to the children of Kershaw County. We both saw Dr. Joseph as children and then took our own two sons to him for the past 14 years. He was a gift to our family and the community. He calmed our many "new parent" fears and reassured us while providing the best medical treatment available. He is one of a kind and we will miss seeing him at the doctor's office. Congratulations on your well-deserved retirement!

On Nov. 29th I was on my way home for lunch and saw the Lugoff Fire Department in front of my neighbor's house. After parking in the road and walking over to where my neighbor was standing I found out that, fortunately, the house was not on fire but a scene was taking place that looked like it should have been on television.

The term "flip-flop" has come to be one of the most caustic charges that can be thrown at a political candidate, and rightly so. It's hard to like a candidate who appears to bend his views to suit whichever audience he's addressing, and candidates who insist on taking one position one day and another the next day don't appear to be serious. But sometimes we as voters and political observers take this position to an extreme, pushing people into never changing their positions lest they be termed flip-floppers.
