Trust is a very fragile thing.
It is crafted slowly and depends on all parties being honest, open and forthright.
Trust can also be crushed easily and nearly impossible to rebuild.
For the last 18 months (and actually longer) a web of distrust has been woven. It involves threads between members of the Barnwell County Council, former and present members of the Economic Development Commission, the municipalities of our county, and the public. Caught in this web is SouthernCarolina Alliance.
