REMEMBERING PRESIDENT GEORGE H.W. BUSH - When George H.W. Bush, who died Fri., Nov. 30, ran for president in 1988, he did not campaign in Saluda County,but he sent his son, a little known Texas oil company executive, to campaign instead. Of course,that little known Texan would also become the President of the United States (George W. returned to Saluda County to campaign when ran for president in 2000, with a rally at the National Guard Armory).
