What Happens In South Carolina Stays In South Carolina
From Betsy Combier: A funny thing happened when I went to the South Carolina Virtual Library to see what information lay under the link "government opennes". I cannot get any information because my computer is not listed as located in South Carolina. Have a great day, everyone!!

Sunshine Week 2012
Do you think we have a right to know what our government is doing? Are there times when government decisions and actions should be kept secret? Sunshine Week is March 11-17, 2012, but it's not about the weather. It's about the public’s right to information and open government. Freedom of Information Day is part of Sunshine Week and is celebrated annually on March 16th, the birthday of James Madison, the fourth President of the United States.
