    You're right SS isn't the answer. His Offenses are so predictable, the Defense doesn't have to do much guessing as to what we're gonna do. We need a coach who is up to date in this era of college football. Alabama has Saban, GA has Richt, LSU has Miles, Florida has Myer, etc. Tenn is on it's way down with Fulmer another one who has seemingly lost touch with the modern game. Schemes and adjustments wins games and we don't do a very good job at either of them.

    Our D returned almost all of it's starters from last season, so I expect them to be stout all season long. The O is where I have concerns, but Clemson shouldn't have remained in the polls after Bama soundly thrashed them at the GA Dome. I don't want us ranked too high, even if we beat the Dawgs next week because we appeared to have gotten a swollen head last year when we went 6-1.

    I agree krazee. When I visit Lake City and ride through Lower Florence, Clarendon, Williamsburg Counties, I'm sadden by the lack of opportunity for those who still live in those areas. SC has a challenge ahead, I just hope that the state take heed to some of the mistakes that other states have made relative to the haves and have nots.

    Atlanta's Regional Rail and Transit Systems.

    A more DC like transit system would require money from the state and other counties in the metro. Dekalb, Fulton and the City of Atl foots the bill for the system. MARTA is the only major transit system in the nation that doesn't get any funds from the state.

    Flo, I only responded to what you posted. You're the one who inserted race into this discussion with your assessment of and displeasure for Ed Robinson. His contituents reelected him because they appreciate the job he's doing for them. You also posted the above which envoked race into a discussion regarding the tax issue. BTW, I don't know Ed Robinson, so he and I are not friends as you have assumed. You're the one attempting to discredit others with a different viewpoint.

    Sounds like you've got a problem with Ed and the people of his district. Your mention of Williamsburg and Marion in your previous post and now you ref this district and it's problems says a lot about you. I would think that the whole city council would be responsible for citywide progress, but your reference seems to suggest otherwise, relative to Ed's district. BTW, why did Ed compare the FPD to the KKK?

    Could this be because some regions in SC only focus on a small number of areas for job growth. For instance, in Florence County all the focus for creating jobs and other econ developement has been in one area. If the rest of the state thinks in this manner, then I can understand the gloomy outlook. There needs to be a sense of building up on a more broader scale. The city of Florence is definately experiencing growth, but the rest of the county is not fairing very well. While I can understand the creation and mataining of an econ base, I don't see where neglecting other parts of a region is benefitting the whole. Is this kind of thinking prevelent throughtout SC?

    This tax isn't good for the county and passed by a narrow margin. When I was home for Thanksgiving last week, I found out that Rep. Clyburn had already gotten the money for the Pineneedles Road project before the election, yet it remained on the list. And I don't understand why the county is responsible for funding the widening of US 378. Shouldn't U.S. roads be funded with Federal dollars? What will they do with the funds that were allocated for the Pineneedles project? Will any of this money be used for other roads, such as SC 341? Rep. Clyburn has done an excellent job over the years, at bringing the bacon home to his district and now that he has a very powerful position in the congress, he should be able to meet the needs of some of these projects with Federal dollars. I will be watching to see how and where this new found money is spent by Florence County.
