Forecasts call for major tropical weather in SC

Posted on June 2, 2017 7:07 am by Robert Joseph Baker

The Atlantic Coast could see a busy hurricane season this year with 11 to 17 named storms forecast.
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration said that five to nine of those storms are likely to be hurricanes, and two to four of those will likely be major storms.
Hurricane season began Thursday, and the NOAA reported last week a 70 percent certainty that the 2017 season, which lasts through Oct. 31, will at least be near normal to above normal. The annual prediction calls for only a 20 percent chance of a below-normal season.

Posted on June 2, 2017 4:04 am by Staff Reports

South Carolina has for decades been touted as one of America’s top whitetail states, but harvest numbers continue to decline in the Palmetto State, with 11 percent fewer animals collected in 2016 than in 2015. This decline has been ongoing for nearly 15 years, dating back to 2002.

Posted on June 2, 2017 3:03 am by Sharon Hall

Church on Wheels is a ministry that has been bringing Christianity to nursing home residents in Clarendon County for more than a decade. Due to age and compromised mobility, the elderly are often unable to attend church, so the church has been coming to them.
Lillian Wright has served in nursing homes with her mobile ministry since 2005. With intentions of quenching the thirst of spiritual needs in the elderly, Wright felt that there was a need to serve in the facilities.
“God placed me here in the Windsor Manor Nursing Facility to bring the word of God to residents,” … Read the rest

Posted on June 1, 2017 4:04 pm by Leigh Ann Maynard

Air. Cold air.
So often I have taken you for granted. It seems that over the much needed holiday weekend something really terrible happened to both of the air-conditioning units at my office, and neither one of them are currently working.
Mrs. Sharon came in on Monday to “tidy up” as she often does while the staff is away, and it was a scorching 88 degrees in the office. She then texted me, and I, in a panic, texted Bobby because it seemed logical that a man who only walks outside to get in and out of a car would … Read the rest
