Andrew Mitchell, a home schooled student from northern Spartanburg County, will continue to play basketball with the Landrum High School Cardinals basketball team.

The SC High School League Athletics Appeals Panel voted 4 to 2 to overrule a decision by the league Executive Director prohibiting Mitchell from continuing to play with the Landrum team after his parents moved into the Chapman High School Transportation Zone.

On September 11, the anniversary of the attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, students at Wood-ruff High School displayed flags from their vehicles.

In accordance with a district policy, apparently designed to prevent the display of Confederate Battle Flags, the high school principal removed U. S. flags from the vehicles resulting in complaints to  WORD Talk Radio’s Russ Cassell Show.

National Guard Helicopters to Train with Sling Load of 25,000 Pounds Concrete

EdPaxton_Page-03A South Carolina National Guard helicopter unit has moved to a facility at the former Donaldson Air Force Base. A spokesman for the military unit has informed Greenville County Council that the facility originally thought to be for helicopter maintenance, will also be involved in training crews to lift and transport heavy sling loads.

It is estimated that 40 or more takeoffs per week are planned. Some of the takeoffs will involve lifting 25,000 pounds of concrete by sling and transporting the loads to several airports, including Anderson, Greenwood, Oconee and Pickens.

The South Carolina National Guard also plans to fly low-level helicopter training exercises at altitudes of less than 500 feet. These exercises will reportedly be flown over the Sumter National Forest in Newberry, Union and Laurens Counties and the DuPont State Forest near Hendersonville, North Carolina.

The original footprint of the two hangars and one office building, located at the former U.S. Army Air Force base, quickly expanded to accommodate the influx of military and commercial aircraft. The inaugural team of 12 employees welcomed a P-3 Orion maritime patrol aircraft to the facility as the first aircraft in work.
