  • 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.
  • PURPLE POUNDERS
    NINETY SIX -- There were about eight minutes left in the third quarter, and Ninety Six was trying to comeback. Down to Emerald 24-7, the Wildcats attempted a hand off to Rod Johnson.  
    The ball was fumbled and Johnson recovered.

    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.

    FRESHWATER
    Lake Jocassee
    Largemouth and Spotted Bass: Slow to fair. Guide Brad Fowler reports that bass fishing has slowed on Lake Jocasse as water temperatures have warmed, although the general pattern remains pretty similar. Early in the morning fish are chasing bait pretty well around shallow, flat points, and throwing topwater lures around shallow water has been producing. During the day fishing turns into a slower grind where fish can be found in 20-30 feet of water off the ends of places where they were schooling earlier. Shakey head worms, drop shot rigs and Carolina rigs can all catch bass.

    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.

    I knew Greenwood attorney Don Long was a music fan. I’ve seen him at different music events in and around Greenwood including Music on Maxwell and the Greenwood Blues Cruise portion of the annual South Carolina Festival of Discovery in Uptown Greenwood.
    What I didn’t know was that he was a fan of Barry Manilow. At least I think he is. He probably didn’t know that about me, either. That is until I wrote my column on Aug. 17 about a card and a note my mom included with a Christmas present once many years ago. It explained how she loved me because she was my mother, but liking me was something totally different, and she didn’t have to do that. The note let me know she did love me... and like me.
