It's a lack -- indeed, a total lack -- of citizen control or influence on road funding. How do we know more money won't produce better roads?

Tatum: Your reputation precedes you

So, I walked into a neat little country store/artists colony thing up in the mountains last week. Having been drawn by the sound of a Martin guitar and an easy-going voice doing old folkie tunes from the hills and hollers, I sat down with a glass of tea for a listen.

Rich: A childhood friend and lesson

Joseph: The sun will shine

After the storm, comes the sun. No matter how dark it gets, the sun will shine again. Or perhaps we should say, no matter how much rain falls, the sun will shine again. And it would shine bright on Tuesday of this week for most of South Carolina. But not after historic rainfall totals were reached; amounts only seen once in 1,000 years.
