A post on The Pickens County GOP website gained national attention on Comedy Central’s Colbert Report. The screenshot was taken from the Comedy Central website.
A Thursday, July 25 post on the Pickens County GOP website caught the eye of Comedy Central’s Steven Colbert, who on the Thursday, Aug. 1 edition of the Colbert Report chaffs the local political party.
But a representative with the local GOP says the comments weren’t originally theirs, and that they simply reposted a story from another website to “provide information and to educate people about news going on in the country.”
Two employees of the Younglife Camp in the Grandview area were rescued by a Forsyth County Swiftwater Rescuse team this morning on the access road leading to the camp. See full rescue of first stranded person from YouTube.
The two employees were in a truck that washed downstream lodging on a formed island that developed after a flash flood swept through the narrow creek channel, blowing out culverts.
