Last month, our column dealt with a sound from the late 1860s in Kershaw County, the sound of the auctioneer's gavel at a tax or bankruptcy sale as he hammered it down and said "sold" for a piece of county property. It was an unforgettable sound, especially if it were your property being sold.

Scully: The glass is more than half full

In the last few weeks I have listened to so many crepe hangers telling me the world is falling apart (or is it the sky that's falling?) I want to talk about the good news, at least in our state.
