Some Travel Notes

A brief break from Pennsylvania politics: To those going to South Carolina for the GOP presidential candidate events this weekend and in the future for the South Carolina primary, let me recommend a few places to visit. Belk is a regional department store and a great place to shop. There are stores throughout the south including a number in South Carolina.

In the greater Columbia area, Sammy Jo's in nearby Winnsboro (Fairfield Co) has wonderful pizza, sandwiches, etc. My favorite item on the menu are the raw fries. It is sort of a lightly fried potato slice. You can't get them here. To those hanging around Iowa for the caucus, if you are on the western border of the state, slip across the state line to Nebraska City, Nebraska. There is a Pendleton's Outlet there. Across the square there is (or at least there used to be) a diner (Shirley's? Sylvia's? something like that) with a great chocolate cream pie on the menu. After a few hours of shopping there is nothing better than a good slice of pie. We now resume our regularly scheduled programming.
