  Just outside the North end of Winnsboro, SC you can find a small area amid a residential neighborhood known as Fortune Springs Park. A small pond with paved walking trails invite you to stop by and enjoy the quiet, serenity of the outdoors as you soak up some rays along side some of the residents, which typically includes geese, ducks, and of course the turtles that accompany any body of water in the Southeast.

 The other day a I wrote a post about the Fairfield County museum in Winnsboro, SC. Currently they are holding a special exhibit for one of their native Sons, William Belk, that displays many of the artifacts that he has saved and collected over the years and through his travels. To the left is a picture of one such artifact that is currently on display during the exhibit.  It's the blindfold that William wore when he was a hostage in Iran. He was one of more than 60 Americans who spent 444 days in captivity when the US Embassy in Tehran was overrun. I can't imagine what the experience must have been like or how frightened those that endured this ordeal must have been.  Luckily, William was returned and finished out the rest of his career serving the U.S. He like many of the people thos...
