When our community chooses to come together

I had been in Kershaw County just a few months when I got one of the worst phone calls of my professional career.

Who’s afraid of the fiscal cliff?

Two years after the Tea Party radicals hit their high point with a wave of mid-term House elections, Republicans are pointing fingers at one another and bickering so much that it is hard to tell them from Democrats.
