Female breadwinners to cause downfall of society?

I'm not typically one to really keep up with the happenings on FOX News or really any other news type channel for that matter. I don't really watch TV all that often so I tend to get my news from a variety of websites. However, sometime Friday as I scanned my Facebook newsfeed I began to see a trend. There appeared to be some sort of hullaballoo regarding comments said on FOX News. The thing that caught my attention were the variety of people who were posting about what happened. It wasn't just those that refer to ...

Wiley Kelley’s role in filling CSA ‘bread baskets’

Along the eastern edge of Kershaw County flow the Little and Big Lynches rivers. European settlers received land grants along these two rivers in the three decades preceding the Revolutionary War. They began to plant and cultivate crops in the rich bottom lands bordering these rivers and during the next half century, several large plantations developed. One such plantation was that of David and Elizabeth Tyner Kelley and their son Wiley Kelley (1795-1873).

Smiling faces. Beautiful places.

A friend of mine came through town the other week to stay with me for a night as a sort of rest stop on his current road trip. Naturally, he wanted to see all the many sites and attractions that the area has to offer. As we drove through downtown Camden and I pointed out all the historical houses and then crossed over the bridge separating Camden from Lugoff, he said to me "everyone waves here." I was a little confused by this statement. So I asked him what exactly he meant by that. I mean, I understood the words ...

Input from home

I know I should probably write about the current multiple scandals in Washington. And with the investigations into the Benghazi terrorist attacks, the revelation of the Department of Justice pulling the Associated Press' phone records, and the outrageous political vendetta being revealed at the IRS, there would certainly be no shortage of material.

I-5 bridge collapse a warning for S.C.

I didn't get a lot of sleep Thursday night and not because I wasn't feeling well or had a lot of noise to keep me awake. In fact, I actually fell asleep in an office-type chair in front of my computer trying to watch online, live video from a Seattle, Wash., TV station covering the partial collapse of an I-5 bridge over the Skagit River.
