    Ninety Six School District 52 will continue to strive for excellence in the 2014-15 school year, focusing on creating a school climate that celebrated various forms of student achievement -- academic and athletic.
    One of the major strategies used to create such a climate is through the introduction of the Renaissance Program. The program affiliated with Jostens, celebrates academic achievement, and seeks to reward and recognize students in creative ways for their academic gains.

    Yes, we have the freedom to congregate essentially as we wish on private property, but we’ll still give the New Empire Knights of the Ku Klux Klan a thumbs down for its gathering in Abbeville County last month and its plans to come back next year. Abbeville doesn’t need that, really.
    On its blog, the group claims to have had 116 members attending the weekend gathering. That’s about 116 more than we’d like to have had show up, but ... While enjoying a time of fellowship, which included a wedding (bet the bride looked great in white -- white sheet, that is!) the group voted on a few matters, such as whether to allow women and non-Christians to join or form youth groups. All were voted down, by the way, which is fine. And interesting.

    It’s one of those good news, bad news tales.
    The City of Greenwood now has the ways and means of addressing some of the most hazardous situations, meth lab cleanup. Equipped with a trained crew and a $400,000 HAZMAT response truck, the city’s fire department is ready for a variety of emergency situations, from chemical spills to train derailments to gas leaks. Its response list includes meth lab duty, the hazardous task of cleaning up those places where the drug is manufactured once law enforcement has done its duty and broken up the meth manufacturing operation. And sadly, it seems, the meth cleanup muscle will get the most flexing.

    We like it when Greenwood’s county manager, Toby Chappell talks trash. After all, it’s led to some cleaner roadsides throughout the county.
    As detailed in a front-page story Monday, the county has seen more than 10 miles of roadside litter cleaned up and stowed in 169 13-gallon bags within the last three months -- all at minuscule cost to the county taxpayers. Chappell and Richard Williams, an agent with the state Department of Probation, Parole and Pardon Services, developed and launched a plan that puts parolees and those given community service sentences to work cleaning our roadsides.
