The house

The house has always been there. She will, most likely, always be there. She has never wavered from her foundation or from her purpose. She has always endured. She has reared our children, celebrated our joyous occasions, wept for our unfortunate circumstances, helped us bury our dead.

So much more than 'his' highway

If most Kershaw County citizens were asked this question – "Who is John G. Richards? – a few may remember Highway 97 from Camden to Liberty Hill as the John G. Richards Highway but know little else. Perhaps that may be understandable since he died in 1941, long before most of us were born.
