Hello everyone, what about about Old Man Winter breathing cold air down our necks last week? We laugh and joke about South Carolina being one of the few states that we can actually suffer frostbite and sunburn within the same week. Artic air one day, humidity the next. We all know what the old folks are sayin’: “Child, we are living in our last days!”


Gottrocks The Birthday Fairy was even getting his wings and coolant system re-winterized. He also managed to text in the birthdays and news bits, despite being grounded ina garage. Lets do our birthday wishes and then on to local news.

Happy Birthday to Wilhelmina Rice, Jonathan Boyce, Robbie Duckett, Will Bledsoe, Darlene Styles, Lomas Tyrek Davis, Grace Bradley, Nadean Sissy Johnson, Travis King, Connie B. Wix, Asheley Lindler, Bruce Gregory, Emmie M. Yarbrough, Tommy Alverson, John McCarley, Fran G. Rogers, Pattie G. Taylor, “Janie Belle” Woods Coyne, and Dr. T — Terrell E. Fowler III.


On a sad note, we send out best wishes and sympathies to the families of Mrs. Annie Earwood Mars and Mr. Charles “Poppa Charles” Wicker.
