  “There’s a lot of pressure on those guys over there.” That was the sad response of someone close to the athletic department at Presbyterian College when told last Wednesday that Gregg Nibert had resigned as men’s basketball coach. Presidents have come and gone from PC since Nibert took the head...
  There are few things more representative of spring than baseball (or softball)…allergies withstanding. If you have ever attended a Greenville Drive, Columbia Fireflies, USC Gamecocks, or Clemson Tiger game, you know the the time-honored, Harry Caray-inspired ritual around the 7th Inning Stretch…...
  I have had the privilege to live in multiple communities.  I have worked as a member of a large Upstate municipality and I have worked closely with leadership on all levels.  I have come to know that there are many types of leaders and leadership styles.  Some leaders and their models of...
  The editor: Hang Up Your Guns… Do you remember seeing the old western movies where the sheriff had people check-in their guns while in town? They did so because it seemed to create a safer and more civilized environment for all citizens.  Now we have legislators calling for “open carry” laws and...

The most important event in all of history. Or the biggest hoax of all. One of those statements describes the resurrection of Jesus Christ. Christians world-wide will celebrate, as they have for 2000 years, on Easter weekend. What do Josh McDowell, Lee Strobel, and C.S. Lewis share in common? All...
