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.

Rahm departs with mixed legacy

"Larger than life." That's how Rahm Emanuel's first grade teacher described him in a written evaluation, according to a March 2009 profile in The New Yorker. Smart teacher. The man widely known as simply "Rahm" or "Rahmbo" today apparently loomed large even then. His looming continues.
