Back in June, I told you about a S.C. Supreme Court ruling in a North Augusta case concerning public bodies entering executive sessions. As I've mentioned time and time again in this space, we still have a problem with the way certain public bodies here in Kershaw County go into executive session.
WASHINGTON -- Forget Jeb Bush's bold promise of 4 percent economic growth, which Chris Christie subsequently matched. Never mind Scott Walker's attempt to one-up them both, with a pledge of (wait for it) 4.5 percent growth.

Catawba Chief King Hagler is a beloved symbol of Camden. His image made in iron has crowned the town's successive clock towers since 1824. Today, he stands atop the third clock tower in the center of downtown. He also graces the cupola on city hall and the numerous historical markers at historic sites around town. His image has pointed the direction the wind blows in Camden for 191 years.

So, another video of an elusive, mythical creature has hit the internet, this time someone's cellphone video of a possible Sasquatch, shot not too far away in the North Carolina mountains.

A special delivery for Hailey recently showed up at the Kershaw County Sheriff's Office (KCSO). A $100 check -- in the form of a donation -- for Hailey the bloodhound.
It's been a week, and my forehead is still peeling.
WASHINGTON -- It is perhaps time to stop wondering what The Donald's got the others ain't got.
About this time every year, there are three words that mean different things to different people: "Back to school!" I noticed several days ago where someone on Facebook posted that very amusing Staples' back to school commercial, "The Most Wonderful Time of the Year." I have to say it's one of my favorites, though not necessarily because of the obvious. It's because of the manner in which the dad is frolicking through the aisles of Staples as he tosses miscellaneous school supplies into his shopping cart as his rather unhappy kids stand by and watch. Their faces are ...
CLEVELAND -- Not to diminish the importance of the first Republican debate, but it felt like the first in a political survivor series.
I guess I'll have to admit I am a living contradiction. That could apply to a lot of aspects of my life, but what I am specifically referring to here is my love/hate relationship with modern technology. My regular readers are well aware of this.
