Hello everyone, local news and events coming up after we do our birthday greetings.

Gottrocks The Birthday Fairy says he can’t get used to football season openers and this South Carolina sweltering weather. Tailgating with summer clothes on, folks plunge into fall football games with enthusiasm, despite the 95 temps. Oh well, maybe Gottrocks can fit in as a water bottle fairy, making sure folks stay hydrated at tailgating parties.

So now that we have a plan for hot weather games, lets get our birthday greetings going.


Happy Birthday to Matt Felker, Michelle Milller, Fred Sligh, Vicky H. Millwood, Jackson Wix, Jamie Garner, Robbie Lominick, Ryder Thompson, and Jackie T. Duncan.

Best Feel Good Wishes

We send our best feel good wishes and speedy recovery to Edgar Baker, Brandon Alexander and Wallace Alexander, and Coach William “Lefty” Johnson.


On a sad note, we send our sympathies and best wishes to the families of Mrs. Dot Grant Miskelly and Mrs. Mary C. Anderson.
