    As if we needed another reminder that the free market is no place for big government, along comes another government loan failure—Open Range. This Greenville, Colorado company received $267 million in federal loan guarantees from the Department of Agriculture in an effort to bring broadband service to unserved or underserved rural areas. Along the same vein as Solyndra, Open Range was purported to provide cutting-edge technology, but worked under an extremely questionable business model. In early October, Open Range declared bankruptcy, leaving taxpayers to foot a $74 million bill for unpaid loans. The government picking winners and losers in the...

    Stop Obama Now!! - San Diego ^ | 8/9/2011 | roger-sd
    In October of 2007, Obama declared at a Apostolic Church in Greenville, South Carolina that he would create a millennial kingdom of God on earth. The church is Redemption World Outreach Center and is reported to be a part of the Pentecostal Holiness movement, according to some websites. Some Pentecostals believe that the kingdom will be a real physical kingdom, a theocracy ruled by men, and this appears to be such a sect. The doctrine that the millennial kingdom will be a man-made physical kingdom on earth created by political or military means is called Dominion Theology. The doctrine of...

    GREENVILLE, S.C. -- An abandoned dog is recovering after his eyes were gouged out. The North Greenville Animal Hospital had to remove both eyes of the 2-year-old dog. "This dog really didn't have any other injuries, so we wonder if it's an abuse situation where someone actually traumatized the eyes," said Dr. Ann Malphrus of North Greenville Animal Hospital. Malphrus works with Noah's Arks Rescue, an organization that adopts injured and abused animals in order to get them care and help them find permanent homes. The spitz, who has been named Gandolf, was picked up by Greenville Animal Control officers...

    Greenville, South Carolina is a great city in a great state. The area across Caesar's Head Mountain to Brevard, North Carolina is one of the most beautiful places on earth. The people in South Carolina are hard-working, down-to-earth folks who appreciate their freedom, and their private property rights. Few of the folks know that back during the 1970s, South Carolina was one of a handful of states that yielded to the Progressive push to require comprehensive land use planning. Senators "Scoop" Jackson and Morris Udall tried unsuccessfully to get Congress to adopt a National Comprehensive Planning Act. The same national...

    131 EXPOSED IN GREENVILLE The number of workers exposed to tuberculosis at a Greenville, S.C., chicken plant has grown to 131, but state health officials cautioned Tuesday only one is suspected of having an active form of the infectious disease. The S.C. Department of Health and Environmental Control began testing employees at the House of Raeford Farms plant late last month after the agency was told about the infected worker. So far, 286 employees who have been in contact with the worker have been tested. The percentage of positive cases is believed to be high because many of the plant's...

    Republican Sen. John McCain says he would consider speaking at Bob Jones University, a school he criticized during the 2000 presidential campaign for its ban on interracial dating and anti-Catholic views. "I can't remember when I've turned down a speaking invitation. I think I'd have to look at it," McCain told The State newspaper in South Carolina. The potential 2008 presidential candidate and Arizona senator said he would have to look at Bob Jones University's latest policy statements. "I understand they have made considerable progress," he said. In 2000, McCain assailed the Christian fundamentalist school for its policies and rival...

    I'm thinking of the Carolina mountains as my next place to live. Would you consider Asheville, with its art deco feel as the place to live or would you go for Greenville with its more settled ambience? I've lived in California on the coast all my life and I'd like to try something different. Low cost of living, affordable housing, a safe place to live and having that view outside the window without the price tag. I know Colorado is expensive because every one goes there but no one seems to know the Blue Ridge Mountains are just as stunning....

    The town of Greenville is fast becoming an unlikely source of political debate. After returning from a golf trip to the city, a U.S. senator from Wisconsin criticized the city in an article on-line. Democratic Senator Russ Feingold wrote that the city made the wrong choice for president based on its economic troubles. "I wonder why people sometimes don't vote on the basis of that issue as opposed to issues that might divide us - issues like abortion and gay marriage, which I'm told some people made the basis of their decision for president." Of course, the senator's sentiments aren't...

    Council Refuses To Revisit King Day Decision Two weeks after voting to reject a paid Martin Luther King Jr. holiday, Greenville County Council voted even more definitively Tuesday night not to revisit that decision. Councilwoman Lottie Gibson's motion to reconsider a vote against two proposals for creating a King holiday was rejected 8-4. On April 1, seven of the council's 12 members voted against a council-appointed committee's recommendations for a King holiday and voted instead to approve wholesale changes in the county employees' holiday schedule. Tuesday, Council Chairwoman Phyllis Henderson joined the other seven Republican members in upholding that decision....
