  • Once, twice, sold

    It was a typical adrenaline-filled scene in the auction business – auctioneers rolling numbers off their tongues at unintelligible rates, and the audience shouting out bids in rapid succession.

    Except this time, those bidder’s yells came from second graders at Brooklyn Springs Elementary School.

    Auctioneers Larry Cauthen and Richard Patterson managed the rambunctious crowd in Teresa Guenther’s classroom, and Doug Barfield, from the Lancaster County Sheriff’s Office, kept all the bidders civil.

    For years, S.C. officials have repeatedly tried – and failed – to convince the federal government to allow jamming of signals in prisons from contraband cell phones routinely used by inmates.
    But officials haven’t worked nearly as hard to try to persuade wireless carriers to voluntarily block their own signals in prisons, which, according to corrections officials, the companies are permitted to do. It is against federal law for states or local governments to do it.

  • Leap of faith: 22-year-old fills the pulpit at Crestview

    In some ways, Casey Swails is a typical 22-year-old. He just graduated from college and plans to get married in June.
    But few people his age step into the pulpit and preach to their very own congregation every Sunday, as he does at Lancaster’s Crestview Baptist Church.
    Born and raised in Lugoff, Swails grew up in church but never imagined as a child that he would end up in this position.
