It's a slow news day. I went hunting for some interesting news we can use, and the best I could come up with was an item about voting results from Tuesday's elections in a number of South Carolina towns. One of the issues on some local ballots was whether Sunday sales of adult beverages should be permitted. The town of Clemson, 21-year-old students at the local university will be glad to hear, voted 'Yes" on the issue; some residents of the golf communities Keowee Key and The Reserve at Lake Keowee, about 25 minutes from Clemson, may also cheer the news. In Greer, located between Greenville and Spartanburg and home to Thornblade, a fine family community with a Tom Fazio golf course at its heart, voters also accepted Sunday alcohol sales. Ditto for residents of Greenwood County, home to Grand Harbor and Stoney Point, and Oconee County, close to some of The Cliffs Communities in the Lake Keowee area.
Statewide, voters also approved the legalization of charity raffles. Before the vote, only the South Carolina state lottery was considered a legal raffle. Having been the recipient of a raffle prize or two at charity golf events (e.g. a sand wedge that helped my bunker play), I know that such charities support good causes.
Bravo, South Carolina.
