  • Column: GOP support for Moore reveals party’s true character

    As we all know, the party dominates a large majority of statewide and local offices. In my opinion, many of our local politicians joined the party not as a statement of their ideology but as a means of easily being reelected to positions they had enjoyed as Democrats.
    The Republican Party has wrapped itself in the American flag, thumped Bibles and promoted itself as the party of family values.

    Something remarkable happened in S.C. legal and political circles this past Tuesday. A sitting circuit judge running unopposed for reelection withdrew her candidacy before the Judicial Screening Commission.
    News reports have focused on the unfavorable comments made by lawyers regarding Judge Kristi Harrington in an anonymous survey. The surveys revealed that many lawyers who had appeared before this judge thought she was unqualified by temperament to serve.

  • IL wrestlers top AJ, fall to RHHS

    For a coach who saw his team split a road match, Indian Land High School wrestling coach Leon Boulware was pretty pleased.

  • Bruins down FM Jackets

    Lancaster took different routes, but the result was the same – two LHS trips to victory lane Tuesday night in the Bruins gym.

    The Bruins, in a home twin bill with Class AAAAA foe Fort Mill High School, took two from the Yellow Jackets.

    The Lady Bruins, 3-2, rolled to a 49-32 win over the FM Lady Jackets, and the LHS boys completed the sweep with a close 33-31 win.

    In the nightcap, Fort Mill, which trailed for most of the game, had the final shot to tie, or possibly take the win on a trey, but Lancaster held on for the two-point win.
