#60 Jamir Stukes, wearing the new football pants prior to the game on October 5, stands with Coach Keith West, Dwayne Stukes and his wife, Lena, and Jarrett Williams.
The Manning Monarchs varsity football team is seven games into the season, and for the last four of those games, they’ve had new pants, thanks to one player’s family. Dwayne Stukes often comes from Charleston to watch his son, Jamir, play tackle and defensive end as #60. As a senior, Jamir will play one last season at MHS, and Stukes wanted to do something special for the team.
As a graduate of MHS and a former football player for the Monarchs, Stukes understood how important confidence can be when playing a game. Stukes played offensive tackle and defensive tackle.

The coalition asks the United States Supreme Court to consider the permitting scheme’s burden on Second Amendment rights, the full extent of those rights, and the applicability of those rights to self-defense outside the home.
“We think New York’s restriction clearly violates the Second Amendment,” Wilson said. “As our states’ top prosecutors, we’re all in favor of making our communities safer, but these restrictions… Read the rest

Duke Energy spokesman Theo Lane said in an email Wednesday that although Hurricane Michael will touch the midlands as a tropical storm, it could still cause massive power outages in the Carolinas.
“The combination of heavy rainfall (3 to 6 inches, with locally higher amounts possible) and the threat of wind gusts 40-60 mph will lead to significant power outages across the entire Carolinas service area,” said Lane. “In addition, there is a risk of isolated tornados on Thursday, mainly along and east of I-95 as the hurricane remnants track through the region.”
