  • Country ham is country gentleman of Southern cooking

  • Smart car turns heads

    Although gas has dropped below $2 a gallon again in some places, the Zarrellis are still in love with their little yellow car.

    The 105-year-old Lancaster County man said he's been called the "N-word" more times than he can count. For a long time, he felt like a second-class citizen.

    While conditions for blacks have improved considerably during his lifetime, Truesdale never thought he'd see the day when a black person was elected president.

  • Mick Mulvaney talks election, issues, his future

    Mick Mulvaney began his journey into politics years ago.

    Long before the discussions about school vouchers or housing developments and before his run two years ago for the S.C. House District 45 seat, Mulvaney was interested in the political process.

    "I worked on Ronald Reagan's 1984 campaign. I stuffed envelopes for Reagan in Mecklenburg County," Mulvaney said. "I've been close to politics since I was young."

    The keynote address from former Gov. Jim Hodges resonated with Stroud.
