Dr. Lois Eargle, author of DOUBLE STANDARDS, will be at SHOE CENTER, North Myrtle Beach, SC, Wednesday, July 8, 11 am - 2 pm, to sell and sign her book, as we continue to celebrate Independence Day. Stop in to meet Dr. Eargle (and of course, if we can help with a great shoe selection we will do that too!) Lois Eargle is a representative of the people of Horry County, SC, and has enjoyed that distinction for over five decades. A woman of firsts, she was the first woman (not to mention first non-lawyer and non-jurist) to be selected to the Board of the American Judicature Society. She was the first woman elected as Horry County Auditor as well. In between, she served four terms as the elected legislator to the South Carolina House of Representatives, was appointed to President Ronald Reagan's Mental Health Commission, held an appointment as South Carolina Highway Commissioner, and served as assistant to the Secretary of State of South Carolina. Married in 1952, she and her husband, Jack, live in Conway, where she continues to serve the public, takes care of her family, and works on all the various projects God has set for her to do. Double Standards is her first book, written with the hope that there will one day be only one standard – in the political arena and among us all.
