Election 101: How the next U.S. president will be elected

Posted on November 7, 2016 4:04 am by Submitted by Reader

When Americans vote Tuesday, they will pick their preferred candidate for president, but they aren’t directly electing that person.

Huh? How does that work?
In the U.S., they have what’s called the electoral college, and it’s the members of the electoral college who technically elect the president.
They do so based on the popular vote results in each state.

What is the electoral college?
The electoral college has 538 electors.
Every state, plus the District of Columbia, has an allotted number of electors. The number is determined by how many people each state has in the House of Representatives, plus … Read the rest

Proper disposal of deer remains is a rule of good hunter ethics

Posted on November 7, 2016 12:12 am by Robert Joseph Baker

Disposal of deer remains may not be the highlight of a hunting trip, but it is an important aspect of hunting, particularly in maintaining the hunter’s image.

“Hunters should realize that improperly disposing of deer remains is not only illegal but presents a negative public image,” said Jay Cantrell, Big Game Program assistant coordinator for the S.C. Department of Natural Resources (SCDNR). “It provides a legitimate point of criticism that can be used by people who oppose hunting.”

Cantrell said hunters should also remember not to display harvested game where it might offend non-hunting members of the public. When transporting … Read the rest

Horse Branch members help pianist with yard cleanup after Matthew

Posted on November 6, 2016 8:08 pm by Sharon Hall

Turbeville esident Betty DuBose had prayed for more than a decade for the removal of a tree from her rented property.
Though a favorite of her landlord’s and his family, the 100-year-old tree meant nothing but work for DuBose, who had to frequently rake its leaves throughout the spring and winter months.
In early October, the 74-year-old church pianist got the answer to her prayers, though not in the way anyone could have imagined. Hurricane Matthew blew the arboreal atrocity to the ground.

A new chapter starts tomorrow

Posted on November 6, 2016 6:06 pm by Robert Joseph Baker

Nearly seven months ago, when Dr. Cain’s nurse called me just hours after my initial appointment with him and told me my kidney function was 22 percent, I had Stage IV Chronic Kidney Disease and would soon be in End Stage Renal Failure and need dialysis, I was floored and sick to my stomach.
The more they talked about eventual dialysis, the less I wanted to hear. At least for the first month. But then, as I usually do, I decided to educate myself, and I became more and more comfortable with the idea. June 1, I had my peritoneal … Read the rest
