Ex-S.C. Rep. Mike Pitts’ decision this week to drop his quest to become the next director of the state land preservation agency is a rarity compared to the steady stream of former lawmakers who glided into high-paying government jobs.

The Laurens County Republican, who last year was the House Ethics Committee chairman and had been in the House for 16 years, announced his resignation from the Legislature in early December, effective Jan. 3, after accepting an offer from the state Conservation Bank board to become its next director. Under state law, eight of the bank’s 14 board members are appointed by the House speaker and Senate president pro tempore.

Gators at Washington Center

Washington Center welcomed the University of Florida Women’s Basketball Team for an exciting campus visit!  As the school’s penpals through the Bon Secours Playmaker Pal program, the players came to the school to share in fun activities including art projects, music, Q&A sessions and basketball moves in the gym.  Thanks to generous donations of suite seating, several classes were able to attend the School Game Day at the SEC Women’s Basketball Tournament to cheer their Gator pals to a win.

USA Life Launch

USA.Life unites the nation using pro-American views

SAN JOSE, Calif., March 6, 2019 /Christian Newswire/ -- Conservative Internet leader Steven Andrew launched a new social network to offer a choice to people censored by Facebook or are concerned with privacy issues. It is for all who love America. "I was shadow-banned by Facebook and was blocked from 99% of my 5 million person monthly reach, so I decided to make www.USA.Life, the Facebook alternative, where conservative views are openly shared."

For those who have thought that it will take an outrage of global proportions to restore sanity to this spectacle of “feelings-over-science” that is transgenderism, I can’t help but think we are on the cusp of that very moment. 

Last week I wrote about how it was beginning to dawn on an increasing number of gay and lesbian activists that the doctrine of transgenderism completely undermines their own.  If gender is a fluid, social construct with no binding social or cultural value, then the premise behind homosexuality is obliterated.

It looked like your typical reading class. Dozens of kindergarten students sat cross-legged on the floor watching their teacher turn to the first page. It didn't take long for the five-year-olds to realize: this was no ordinary children's book. "I have a girl brain but a boy body," Miss McBride started. "This is called transgender. I was born this way."
