  • Back in service
    In a dedication ceremony Sunday afternoon, Caboose No. 5759 officially returned home fully restored since commissioned in 1963.
    The caboose primary served the line between Richmond and Birmingham, staffed by an Abbeville crew during its first five years.
  • A double life
    For many, excelling in two different careers simultaneously would be a juggling act, one in which the balls or pins we were throwing would crash to the floor in a din within seconds.
    For Wally Hall, director of special projects in Greenwood School District 52 and a colonel and deputy commander of the National Guard’s 228th Theater Tactical Signal Brigade, however, such success seems to have come naturally through hard work, setting priorities and taking assignments in stride.
  • Emerald beats Abbeville through air
    The temperature was sweltering. The competition was brutal. And the players on both the Abbeville and Emerald sidelines had to be gassed.
    But as the Vikings were down 7-0 with about two minutes left until halftime, Emerald was on the Panthers’ 35-yard line. After throwing two consecutive incompletions, Isaiah Brown hit Justin Watson in the back of the end zone. The throw was the first of three for Brown, who led the Vikings to a 21-7 victory.
  • Northwestern cruises past Greenwood
    A couple bad plays and a few bad bounces have made the difference in the Greenwood High School football team’s first two losses against two of the best teams in the state.
    And those same woes plagued the Eagles Saturday afternoon against defending Class AAAA Division II state champion Northwestern.

    I once was an over-the-road truck driver. I paid a fuel tax for every mile I drove across every state. When I filled up my saddle tanks in a state with low fuel prices and drove to any state and didn’t buy fuel, I still had to pay that state the tax on as many gallons of fuel it would have taken to cross that state according to the miles per gallon the truck gets. Read More...

    It was written 200 years ago and later put to music. In 1931, it took an official place of honor in our nation. It is played and sung at nearly every major sporting event and Fourth of July celebrations. Few who sing it can do it justice and give it the honor and respect it deserves -- even today. Dare I remind readers of the horrid rendition performed some years back by comedian and actress Roseanne Barr? The list is long, but hers is one of the more memorable. Or one most of us would rather not remember at all. Read More...
