My good friend, Pete Landis, owner of the Corner Bagel Shop (corner of Boulevard & Greenville) placed a “Bryant” window sticker on his van 4 years ago. Knowing Pete to be a conservative, I’m sure he wanted to allow the sticker to complete its full lifetime until replacement. These are the types of supporters I have; hard working, frugal businesspeople. Folks that hate to see wasteful spending of any kind. A Christian family man, Pete's an elder in our church and a real asset to our community. I really appreciate Pete’s support, but I think he needs an upgrade. Anyone else that wants free window sticker replacement, please give me a call. I do onsite service!!

This experience was reminiscent of my physics class back in ‘89 with the late Mr. Phaille (the name fits).

Got this e-mail recently from a pastor expressing his support in praying for me.
Dear Senator Bryant, As one of your constituents from the Powdersville area, I pray for you on a regular basis. However, today, God impressed me to let you know that someone was praying for you particularly. I am able to keep up with you on a personal basis through Dr. Steve Ellis who is a part of the church here at GCC where I pastor. We are proud of the effort you invest in our state and community. Thank you for serving us well. In the church, I know that it is very easy to get distracted by good things, as well as the challenges of the day. I pray that God will help you to focus on the best things where He could use you to have the most effective Kingdom impact. May He protect your family and guard your mind. May your grow in favor in His sight and the sight of men. May He give you discernment and courage to stay on the wall for a His great purpose (Nehemiah 6:3).

The SC Department of Corrections evidently has a problem with inmates publicly exposing themselves in manners not appropriate. There is a court challenge to the 2 year old policy that punishes these offenders by making them wear pink jump suits. Naturally, a few nuts are clamoring to defend these inmates. I don't get it. Seems like to me the inmate has a choice. Follow the rules and choose your color.

I had the pleasure of greeting the students at Riverside Middle School Wednesday morning in Pendleton. I was impressed immediately by the atmosphere of discipline and commitment towards learning. We all know even the best behaved middle school students are full of energy and harnessing this energy towards learning is no small task. Principle Kevin Black and staff apparently have found the necessary innovation to create an impressive learning environment. I'll be back in October to speak to the students as they recognize Constitution Day. I'd better do my homework because I'm sure these students will be ready with some tough questions.
