  • Column: S.C. must start expecting more of itself

    Recently, I was talking with a Columbia woman who works with government contracting on the local, state and national level. She has built a multimillion-dollar business, and she runs it with honesty and integrity.
    In talking about her work with S.C. state government, she said something that stopped me dead in my tracks. “State government has become so corrupt on every level,” she said, “and it’s been that way for so long that people just accept it as business as usual – just the way it is.”

  • Warriors top Jackets, 41-35

    INDIAN LAND – Rivalry games can often take strange turns, given the major stakes and bragging rights. Friday night, when Buford battled old rival Indian Land, was a perfect example.

    A play that wasn’t even supposed to be run.
    Host Indian Land, which held a 35-13 lead at one point, found itself at regulation’s end in a 35-all stalemate with the late-surging Jackets.

    Indian Land High School junior Shawn Miller was promoted from ninth grade to 11th grade this year, and he credits the school’s I-Succeed program for that success.
    Miller said when he started the program, led by Assistant Principal Brenda Ishmael, he was a struggling second-year freshman.
    “I was kind of feeling down, but Mrs. Ishmael checked in with me every week and helped me to stay motivated…. Because of the program’s help, I was promoted from being a freshmen to a junior.”
