Sparking Trail 

Appalachian Trail Spooners Incur Sparking Probe

Associated Press:
high court says gov's ethics probe is public

COLUMBIA, S.C. — South Carolina's Supreme Court ruled Thursday that an ethics investigation into Gov. Mark Sanford's travel must be made public, clearing the way for lawmakers considering impeachment to review a report on the probe.

Sanford's lawyers had tried keep a report on a criminal investigation by the State Ethics Commission from being released to the House of Representatives as leaders there decide whether to move forward with impeachment efforts.

The commission's investigation was launched after Sanford returned from a five-day rendezvous with an Argentine lover in June that prompted investigations by The Associated Press into his travel practices.

Like hard luck and the itch, automobile spooners know neither the hour of the night nor the change of the seasons. The other night a party of determined sparkers was dislodged from a private lane in this vicinity. They blocked the road and seemed oblivious to the fact that the owner of the road wanted the right of way. It was cold. Certainly an automobile was not the most comfortable place in the world for a petting party but that cut no figure with the occupants of the car, who were making nuisances of themselves. ~ (Altoona Mirror, 1929)
