    Cheraw, 5-1, only held a 7-0 lead midway through the second quarter, but you could sense it was only a matter of time before the Braves’ athleticism took over.

  • Column: Constitution protects vile speech, with some limits

    Most reactions to the march by white supremacists in Charlottesville, Va., last month condemned the marchers, their message and their use of swastikas, chants and Nazi imagery. But there were also questions about why they were allowed to hold their march and spread their vile message of hate.
    The latter question is just one of the latest examples of a recent trend in which some are asking whether certain groups and individuals should be permitted to express views that offend others.

    Just when you thought it was time to dismiss defending Picks champ Ernie Rowell from 2017 contention, he deals a winning hand.

    Rowell, the “Big E,” was singing a victory song last week with a stellar 17-3 effort in the Picks.

    He still has ground to make up, but he said he’s making headway.

    “Yep, I’m picking with my head now, not my heart and I’m moving north instead of south in the Picks,” Ern said. “Going south in the picks is getting way to close to Eddie Land.”
