Thomas Heyward continues to impress

First Byline: 
Anthony Garzilli

The coach is always looking for a source of motivation. He seeks the simplest slight that might be used to invigorate his team.
Thomas Heyward coach Nic Shuford talked this summer about the Rebels being underdogs and how the assumption is this is a rebuilding year. Part of his motivation was to exceed the low expectations. But even he was a bit unsure about the young team (12 underclassmen). Shuford didn't know how the team would react to adversity or if it was ready to really compete at the varsity level.

Press Association's Rogers: We don't need backroom politics, secrecy

First Byline: 
Bill Rogers

Three school board members in the Lowcountry took a courageous step last week when they refused to attend an executive session they felt was illegal.
If more public officials refused to participate in improper or illegal secret meetings, we would have far more transparency in government.
The secret meeting was to view proposals to renovate an old school into district administration offices to the tune of $1.6 million.
So what is the need for secrecy? Shouldn't the public be privy to this presentation and discussion?


How was your back to school shopping experience?
