HeartstepVirtually every family and business in the Upstate is impacted in one way or another by addiction. Law enforcement leaders have said that alcohol and other drugs are factors in a majority of traffic fatalities and serious crime in our community.

Christians know that “All things are possible through Jesus Christ.” They know that the answers to all their problems are contained in their Bible but they don’t always know where to find them.

When Christians are faced with an addicted family member who is being abusive, committing crimes, unreliable as a worker and eventually facing prison, they will usually seek advice and help from their pastor. Unless pastors are familiar with Wisdom in Living Life Ministry, they have little choice but to refer them to a private or government operated treatment facility where they are “treated” and released into the environment they came from. There is an alternative. There is a Christ-Centered, Bible-Based method for ending addiction once and for all that has proven successful for more than a decade. We need it and it needs us. We have an opportunity to take part in a proven effective Bible-based method of changing lives.

Kendall-Daughters-Marry

“I Do’s” come in “Twos” for sisters Prentiss Elisabeth and Lisë Marie Kendall. Due to the logistics of getting two of their siblings here who are currently in Nevada and Hawaii the sisters and grooms opted for back to back weddings December 3, 2011, at Hampton Park Baptist Church in Greenville, SC. Prelude music by area harpists, Aubrey Elliott and Sarah Northrop, began at 10:30. As the mothers, Jan Kendall and Valerie Allen entered, Mark Jeffords and his mother, Barbara Jeffords, sang “O Holy Night,” followed by the chiming of the eleventh hour from Dr. Ed Dunbar, organist. Paton Kendall, nephew of the bride, came down the aisle ringing bells announcing repeatedly “the bridegroom is coming!” Hunter Kendall, brother of the bride, sounded forth the fanfare announcing the appearance of the bridegroom, James Chandler Allen of Knoxville, TN, and his groomsmen.

The Government Has Never Released Coyotes into South Carolina For Any Reason

Coyote-MugCoyotes were trapped and killed near Wade Hampton High School and fire department recently. This raised the question as to the legality of trapping and shooting coyotes in South Carolina. A call to the Sheriff’s Office led to the Department of Natural Resources in Clemson.

Coyotes have been present in Upstate South Carolina since 1978. They are now present in 46 South Carolina Counties. DNR has never released Coyotes in South Carolina for any purpose, although an unfounded rumor alleges they were released in SC to help with deer

The TD Convention center filled quickly tonight, as more than 1000 invited guests, staff, friends and family gathered for Piedmont Women’s Center’s annual Banquet for Life 2012, “Righting the Wrong.” Lenna Fox Neill welcomed the crowd with her spontaneous enthusiasm and sparkling personality. She took the stage and grabbed the attention of everyone in the room with a simple statement, “We have saved 243 babies.” That simple remark underscored the complete purpose and mission for the Piedmont Women’s Center and the evening itself.
