Letter: Vote for third party is vote for Clinton

Posted on November 7, 2016 3:03 pm by Submitted by Reader

I have been asked a lot about who I am supporting for president, as if it were any doubt about who.
I have really lost some Facebook friends and others that I thought were my friends over my support of Donald Trump. It ain’t like I started out supporting Trump. In fact, he was down near the bottom of my list of Republicans, but I said in the beginning that I would support the nominee and I am a man of my word.
This is unlike some of our candidates. Yes, you know who they are, and you can make … Read the rest

Fall colors begin to appear throughout SC

Posted on November 7, 2016 5:05 am by Submitted via Email

With the arrival of fall, many of the brilliant colors associated with the season are beginning to appear.

Trees initiate physiological changes that will help them cope with the much lower winter temperatures. One adaptation is to drop their leaves. Leaves have been producing energy in the form of sugar all spring and summer, but now they are a liability; the freezing temperatures will kill them, and they can be an important source of water loss if they stay on in the … Read the rest
