    RICHBURG – The Lancaster Bruins got offensive and got back on track.

    INDIAN LAND – Comfort is something everyone wants. No one wants to feel nervous, or as if they do not belong.

    The Indian Land Warriors are clearly comfortable playing at home, a stadium they call The Reservation.

    BUFORD – North Central’s Knights took away Buford’s game plan Friday night, Sept. 26 and used it for themselves.

    PAGELAND – Central of Pageland continued its mastery over Andrew Jackson, thumping the Volunteers, 39-6 in a Region IV-AA football tilt at Pageland on Friday, Sept. 27.

    Central’s Daquan Baker-Moore and DeVonte Robinson each rushed for over a 100 yards as the Eagles rolled to a 33-6 halftime lead for their 19th straight win over AJ.

  • Pope now part of the heavenly football game

    Some four years ago, a book, with Pope as the subject, was written and entitled “Do They Play Football in Heaven?”

    Pope envisioned a lofty place where the game is about the offense always producing and the defense always making the key stop.

    I recall that’s how Mike explained his thinking during a book-signing back in the spring of 2010 at Wingate University, his final coaching stop as a volunteer assistant line coach.

  • Transparency movement sees progress and setbacks

    One of the keys to quality government is the ability of citizens to see how decisions are made and how tax dollars are spent.

    It’s that notion that drove me several years ago to establish a special website showing itemized expenditures by state government, and to later launch an ultimately successful initiative to encourage cities, counties, universities and school districts to publish spending details online.

  • Very strange world of race, politics in S.C.

    In November, South Carolina will make history by electing its first African-American to the U.S. Senate.

    And, if the polls are to be believed, it will be Republican Tim Scott.

    Ironically, he will be elected without significant African-American support on the Republican ticket – the party that is widely perceived to be indifferent, if not hostile, to African-Americans.

    The fourth annual National Missions Day will be at the Lancaster Fairgrounds from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Oct. 4.

    There is still time to register for free tent space and be a part of this large community outreach event.

    Founded by apostle Ollie Alexander, ambassador for international missions, the idea of the event is to not only reach out to the community, but foster and encourage a sense of unity between different churches, outreaches and ministries that participate.

    Carolyn Taylor describes herself as “just a wife, mother and grandmother,” but even she admits her life has certainly not been dull or boring.

    Her lifelong interest in drama and history has led her down an interesting career path that influenced countless students in her 25 years of teaching.

  • The power of prayer

    See You at the Pole became See You in the Gym foyer for almost 50 Buford High School students on Wednesday morning, Sept. 24.
