  • Opera house’s Smith calls Newberry home
    Deborah Smith is hard to miss by the patrons who attend a show or visit Newberry Opera House. It could be because of her flowing white hair, her infectious smile or her bubbly personality.
    There’s no telling where she’ll be at any given time on any given day. She could be whirling around the lobby exchanging pleasantries with guests.
  • Taste of July for Labor Day
    NINETY SIX -- It was a make-up event, but nothing felt made up about this event.
    The Town of Ninety Six came in droves Sunday night to the Town Park for a Labor Day spectacular, compliments of inclement weather canceling a portion of the Festival of Stars celebration for this year’s Independence Day.
    “We’re happy to be able to put this on since the cancellation,” Ninety Six Mayor Arvest Turner said. “I’m happy with the turnout.”
  • Day of unity, day of fun

    Filled with inflatable amusement, food vendors, area businesses and nonprofits, Brewer Field became a sanctuary for residents seeking time away, some sunshine, a lot of fun and helpful information for those seeking assistance.

  • Christ Church outlasts Abbeville
    GREENVILLE -- With the state’s record for consecutive wins in a row on the line, Christ Church nearly blew Abbeville High School’s football team off the field in the first half. Cavaliers’ quarterback Andrew Slade threw four touchdowns, and Christ Church led 28-7 at the break and were two quarters from a blowout win to set the record at 42 wins in a row Friday.

    This is going to be a special season for Lakelands fall college sports programs.
    At 5:30 Sept. 22, the 550-seat soccer facility at the Jeff May Complex will be named “Van Taylor Stadium,” for the coach who is leading the Lander men’s soccer program for the 30th year.
    During that time, Taylor’s Lander program has won almost 70 percent of its matches. Last season, the Bearcats were a top regional seed and reached the NCAA Division II Sweet 16. Taylor, who actually was a star goalkeeper at Erskine, is the reigning region coach of the year.

    There is a certain irony about today. The whole weekend, actually.
    Today is Labor Day, a day set aside to recognize the achievements -- economic and social -- of our country’s workers.
    A brief history of the holiday on the U.S. Department of Labor’s website tells us the day was created by the labor movement in America. Eventually, state governments picked up the banner, passing ordinances in the 1880s to recognize the day. That led to a more organized movement to get state legislation passed in recognition of laborers’ achievements, and in February 1887, Oregon was the first state to pass a law recognizing Labor Day.

    Carolina! Clemson!
    Clemson! Carolina!

    Some of you have probably already geared up, ready to make your attack and tell us just how biased we are. At no other time of year, not even the political season, do we hear claims the likes of which we hear during football season. In fact, the claims about our bias make me think the crew at MSNBC, CNN, CBS and FOX have it easy.
    Granted, there are quite a few folks in the office who have garnet and black running through their veins, but that stands to reason. Clemson is not known for spitting out too many journalists anymore than Carolina is known for spitting out agriculturists and engineers -- although, both probably have their fair share of students who have extensively studied one form of agriculture, cannabis. Still, the truth is the newspaper has a healthy crop of Clemson fans.

    There is more afoot than an exchange of pleasantries and jovial back-patting between the leadership of Greenwood city and county. That was evident, but was made more clearly evident during last week’s State of the City and County address hosted by the Greenwood Chamber. And it is more than just encouraging. It is to be lauded, it is to be nurtured.
    We are not suggesting the city and county have been sworn enemies; there is no likening their relationship to that of Israel and Palestine, for example. But the truth is the city and county did, in years past, operate as though they shared no borders and no common purpose. The truth also is that there was a distinct and noticeable shift from that position. Truly, this is a good time for Greenwood as a whole.
