today’s news and information gleanings from here and there! 

Quote for today“Government ought to be all outside and no inside  . . .  Everybody knows that corruption thrives in secret places, and avoids public places, and we believe it a fair presumption that secrecy means impropriety.” –
Woodrow S. Wilson

  • The Historic Columbia Market House is open today and tomorrow (Friday)! First opened in 1869, the majestic structure that is the Market House retains the charm of another era as it delivers delights from the fields, orchards, ovens, kitchens, hands and hearts of local stand holders.
  • The deadly enemy US Marines faced at Camp Lejeune from 1957 to 1987! “Camp Lejeune will likely go down in history as the stage of one of the worst toxic contaminations in the country—and one of the most shameful cover-ups by the Marine Corps. Between 1957 and 1987, as many as one million Marines at Camp Lejeune and their family members used and ingested water contaminated by extremely toxic organic compounds. Recently, there has been evidence that the Department of the Navy is still trying to keep some information about the contamination from the public.” – Project on Government Oversight
