    The Orangeburg Festival of Roses is wonderful! If you love the outdoors, and the beauty of flowers, I highly suggest it! If you suffer from seasonal allergies like I do, I also highly suggest taking your Zyrtec, Claritin, etc... before you head over. 🙂 I learned that lesson the hard way.

    Hello Kyra Phillips, this is David from Martinsburg, WV I am a ex-marine. I am tried that those higher up get a pass. The soldiers, sailors and marines mostly enlisted personnel get shewed as always. Those that are in power set the tone for the men and women, who do the things that they shouldn't do. No way in hell will these guys do what they have done ,if they didn't think it was ok. Thank for letting me share my thoughts.

    I think that the best position for the High Court will go to either a female or a gay male or female. The President said he wants it to be someone that has been "left out" so to say, then I would agree with picking a gay male or female. Being gay myself we don't have many openly gay people in office and I think now would be the best time to have a voice in America. It's been a long time coming. 🙁

    I just finished listening to Mr. Sharpton and his group talking about minority education. When will these people sstopp scamming the public. You cannot force a child to has to start at the family not the school.
