Local American Heart Association reps call for ban on the sale of flavors in e-cigarettes South Carolina lawmakers need to put the health of our residents first by banning flavors in e-cigarettes.

“My mother says the only tent she goes into is a wedding tent,” my friend Carol told me when I said we were going glamping. “But this is glamorous camping,” I explained. “Who doesn’t love glamour?” Under the Canvas near the Great Smoky Mountain National Park was my husband and my first glamping...
I’ll start with the good news: I recently closed the books for the fiscal year that ended June 30, and even after some additional “contingent” spending at year-end the state finished with $350 million in surplus revenues.
