  • String music becomes a symphony on the basketball court

    Joe Dean called it “string music.”

    Cawood Ledford – and I humbly apologize for juxtaposing those two names – described it by many melodic monikers, such as “rambling the ropes,” “tickling the twine” or “nothing but nylon.”

    Wannabe athletes have for decades created catchy calls, but ultimately they wind up with a simple, elegant word: “pure.”

  • EARLIER: What we think: Simpsonville, SCHS should honor Casey

    Triple S had been after Ethington Auto Sales since late last year to clean up two lots full of junk cars, which by zoning rules defined the car lot as a junkyard.

  • Color by the numbers

    Jackson Pollack, Grandma Moses, Andy Warhol and Ben Bernanke?

    Combining art and economics isn’t an everyday occurrence.

    Unless you are a student at Southside Elementary.

    Third-grade teachers Amanda Dungan, Andrea Gohmann and Krista Armes designed a project that combined all those subjects and ends up as a benefit for the community.
