Super Karate Dreams

It all started with the first James Bond movies. 007 would hit you with a Judo Chop. He could hit you with a chop and kill a man or with a little twist only knock you out for 24 hours. Of course, you could fight for five minutes trading these Judo Chops and never knock your hat off. Ah, the things you can do with a movie. As a kid I had to learn how to do judo. Some of my friends had the same idea. We managed to get a book about judo and started trying … Read the rest

Saturday, August 17, will be a day that Larue Coker and his wife, Barbara, will not forget. When they awoke and began to prepare for the day, they soon found out that their day would be far from ordinary.

That morning at 7am, one of them looked out of the window and noticed an unfamiliar truck parked in their yard. The truck was a newer model Chevrolet Z-71 quad cab. Larue went outside to investigate and determine if the owner was asleep inside the truck. Seeing no one, he turned to go back inside. That was when he saw a … Read the rest

(FINAL) The Monarchs offense was held in check

Posted on August 30, 2019 11:11 pm by Blake

After coming off an explosive all around performance last week, the Monarchs of Manning High School couldn’t keep it going.

The Tigers would score touchdowns in the second and third quarters extended their lead to 29-8.

Manning would punch one in on a 4 yard run in the fourth, but Wilson’s kicker had already made two field goals (37yrd, 30yrd) earlier in the quarter.

Thousands of hopefuls from around the Palmetto State lined up to audition for the first round of American Idol in Columbia Monday. Registration began at 7am, but a line had already begun to wrap around the building by 6am. Auditions at 9am placed these brave and hopeful vocalists on stage to perform for a judge, trying for their shot at stardom. Sadly, less than 100 would make it through. 

Among those chosen was a Clarendon resident, Jake McElveen, 22, from New Zion, who will attend the next level of competition in Nashville.  A bartender in Lake City, he was surprised … Read the rest
