OUR VIEW: Expanding History.       Congratulations are in order to the Rosemont Preservation Society for earning a $350,000 SC Conservation Bank grant that allows for land purchase at the Waterloo historic site. It’s a bit “raw” right now; but brush cutting has been going on, so there could be a...
