During Gov. Mark Sanford’s recent State of the State address, he cited the sterling example of Landsford Canal State Park superintendent Al James in neighboring Chester County.
James drew Sanford’s praise for saving the life of kayakers on the Catawba River last summer. He noted James “put himself in harm’s way” to perform his duty.
If Sanford was impressed by James’ example, then he will soon learn, if he hasn’t already, that people from this area are known for an all-out effort to save something precious.
