  • Horne Twitty Road bridge to be replaced

    The S.C. Department of Transportation (SCDOT) Maintenance Division is replacing the bridge over Little Creek on Horne Twitty Road approximately 3.8 miles northeast of Heath Springs.

    According to a SCDOT release, a routine inspection rated the bridge as structurally deficient.

  • Societies’ ills within people, not objects

    Given recent, tragic events, we think it is time to take a look at some statistics. If these numbers don’t grab your attention, nothing will.
    More than 42,000 Americans were killed in 2006, more than 41,000 in 2007, 37,000 in 2008 and about 33,000 in 2009 and 2010. That totals out to more than 185,000 lost lives in a five-year period. That is enough national deaths to wipe out the entire population of Chester County six times over. It’s understandable that people are outraged and want the government to take action, regardless of whatever rights people possess.

  • Test Kitchen: Going bananas for sweet dessert treats

    An apple a day may keep the doctor away, but bananas were always what kept us kids coming back for more! Mom would buy them by the bunches to keep us in the yellow. In fact, I never saw a brown banana until I was an adult...because us kids would gobble them up as soon as she brought them home!
    Well, it seems that I’m not alone in my fruit fancying.
    “I’ve got two favorite ingredients – bananas and peanut butter,” says home cook Lorie Roach on www.justapinch.com.
