Keeping with the holiday season and being thankful, Clarendon County Council on Aging has several people we are thankful for.

Contrary to popular belief, we are not a department of Clarendon County, nor do we receive funding/in-kind services from the county. Clarendon County Council on Aging is a nonprofit agency providing services to seniors older than 60. Currently, we have 92 Seniors … Read the rest

Christmas time is here

Posted on November 27, 2017 10:10 am by Bobby Jonté

Thanksgiving just blew by. Can you believe it? The impossible has happened, also. The tree is up. I can’t believe that. We got the Christmas up without destroying the ceiling. Usually, we have already lined up a painter to repaint the ceiling.
This year, we got the tree up without destroying the ceiling. Now we are putting the additional ties on the tree that keep it attached to the wall. How else can you keep it from falling?
There are a couple of things to do before we can be over Thanksgiving and fully into the Christmas spirit. I’ve been … Read the rest

Letter: Stop calling Gamecocks ‘classless’

Posted on November 27, 2017 6:06 am by Submitted via Facebook

A couple of points to rid my chest of this afternoon. First, congrats to Clemson on the win. Clearly your team (has) one of the most talented rosters in the country, and it shows. Dabo and staff have recruited and developed at a high level and that is undeniable.
Second, stop it with the “holier than Thou” attitude as it relates to fan behavior. There were possibly 30 to 40 items thrown onto the field (Saturday) night. (And that’s 30 to 40 too many).
Stop with trying to make it sound as if all 70,000 or so Gamecock fans that … Read the rest

Prayers for Guinny

Everybody has a story to tell, and all you have to do is listen.

However, I digress.
A few years ago I became enthralled with a local Facebook story of a woman, Read the rest

Poll: What should be done to fans who throw objects onto the field or at players during football games?

Posted on November 26, 2017 9:09 am by Manning Live

Clemson head coach Dabo Swinney was furious that South Carolina fans were throwing bottles at his players in the first half of Saturday’s Palmetto Bowl. During a halftime interview with ESPN sideline reporter Holly Rowe, Swinney expressed his concern for his players’ safety, saying the incident was “an embarrassment.”

“I didn’t know it was in the rules to throw stuff from the stands. I didn’t know it was part of the game,” Swinney told Rowe at halftime. “I’m just trying to protect my players.”
