  • Business owner thanks patrons

    Kershaw is a wonderful beautiful small southern town with folks from all walks of life.

    For me what makes Kershaw so special is its people. They are straight-forward, kind, caring and friendly.

    The pride of the south has left a record of courage and audacity that endures to this day.

    The American Dream I believe in is a good work ethic my grandpa taught me to work six days a week and go to church on the seventh day.

  • Younger generation vote way they want

    I have tuned in to both conventions. One thing the Republican Party truly does not seem to understand is that a lot of the younger generations, those who are 18-40, do not want a politician who has a big military- and political-experienced resume. It's not working for the United States.

    And we'll vote in whatever way will lead the USA in a new approach to the world.
