As you're first starting out, we recommend having a guest count in mind as you're searching for the right venue. Try to stick with that number. You may fall in love with a particular venue, but if its max capacity can't accommodate your guest count, it may be time to cross them off your list.

FLORENCE, S.C. – Florence Post 1 coach Derick Urquhart is one of the University of South Carolina’s most accomplished hitters. But even he was taken aback by the offensive production his players delivered in this past weekend’s NC/SC Challenge.

While Post 1 won two of its three games (19-9 over Rutherford County, 19-0 over Cherryville before losing 14-11 to Fuquay-Varina), it delivered 49 runs on 43 hits, nine home runs, three triples and eight doubles.

Parker Winfield went 8 of 12 in the event with three of those home runs, a double and seven RBI. Brody Cook went 4 for 8 with two homers and finished the weekend with seven RBI. Caleb Rogers went 8 of 11 and doubled twice, tripled and had four RBI. Also, Jake Hardee went 6 of 9 with two doubles and four RBI of his own.

“I think it was good timing for the bats to come around, and I think if you had told me at the start of the year that we were going to go there and win two of three games against those three teams, I would have said, ‘Yeah, give me that all day long,’” said Urquhart, whose team is 15-5 overall. “The whole tone of the weekend started in the first inning of the first game; we scored 10 runs in the top of the first. There’s the old phrase that hitting is contagious, and we just got on a roll. Then, in Game 2, we started with an eight-run top of the first inning. And even on Sunday, in the loss, we started out scoring three in the top of the first.”

This couldn’t happen at a better time for Florence, with two weeks left in the regular season. Defending state champion Post 1 (4-3, second place in League 2) will play three games this week against league leader, Horry Post 111 (8-0 in league). They play 7:30 p.m. Tuesday at Conway High School, 7:30 p.m. Thursday at American Legion Field, and then 7:30 p.m. Friday at Marion’s Fox Field.

After Urquhart’s team struggled at the plate the first part of this summer, it appears Florence’s offense has caught up to its defense.

“Earlier in the year, we’ve shown we can win with pitching and defense,” said Urquhart, whose team since 2009 has won every League 2 championship, except for 2020. “Our pitching has carried us through most of the year. Our pitchers, this past weekend, had a rough weekend. But our hitters picked us up. So, it’s good to be able to show that we CAN do that. If we put it all together at the end of the season, hopefully we can try to make a little run.”

Much of the success from this past weekend can be attributed to the mental game.

“We made sure we were not swinging at bad pitches; just make sure we’re swinging at good pitches,” Urquhart said. “Early on in the season, we were taking a lot of pitches right down the middle -- first-pitch fastball down the middle, and we’d take it and not be aggressive at all. We still had some cases of that. But I noticed this weekend that we were definitely a lot more aggressive. We cut our strikeouts down, and we had been striking out a ton throughout the year.”

But that was then, and this is now. Florence will try to take the momentum from this past weekend and carry it as long as it can.

“Hopefully, at the end of this week, we’ll be able to say that the NC/SC Challenge is where it all started clicking,” Urquhart said.

Lake Marion pedestrian bridge slated for restoration by spring 2023

SCDOT plans to start working on the bridge in the fall, and finish by next spring.

ORANGEBURG COUNTY, S.C. — This week, the South Carolina Department of Transportation (SCDOT) announced it will start working on the old Highway 301 pedestrian bridge over Lake Marion.

“There is a real historic nature to this bridge," said State Representative Gilda Cobb-Hunter.

Cobb-Hunter says the history of Highway 301 is deeply rooted in Orangeburg County. She says in the 90's, it was a route connecting New York to Florida.

“We are real interested in people knowing, for example, about the origins in Lake Marion, about the families that were displaced when Lake Marion was created," she said.

The 301 pedestrian bridge crossed Lake Marion, connecting Orangeburg and Clarendon counties. In 2017, it was closed down due to safety concerns.

After five years, the South Carolina Department of Transportation has announced it will begin work to restore the bridge.

“We were discouraged, and we were also helpful so we did what we could to put some petitions together and we had a lot of advocates around here trying to push for that," said Santee resident David Walters.

With the use of the $1.6 million in state funding, it plans to repair its damaged steel hand railings and other breaks in the concrete to make it safer for pedestrians.

“We were discouraged, and we were also helpful so we did what we could to put some petitions together and we had a lot of advocates around here trying to push for that," said executive director of Santee Cooper County Promotions Jane Powell.

Cobb-Hunter says she would like to push for private funding to support this project as well. In addition to supporting tourism for visitors, she says this project is also supportive of local commuters.

“Quite frankly, this bridge, it’s not just about recreation, and access to recreation, for a lot of people on both sides of the bridge, it’s a cheap way, especially with the cost of gas now, it’s a cheap way to get to work," she said.

The South Carolina Department of Transportation plans to start working on the bridge in the fall, and finish by next spring.

When it opens, no motorized vehicles will be allowed.

MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. (WMBF) - Gov. Henry McMaster said Friday the state will file motions by the end of the day for the Fetal Heartbeat Act to go into effect.

The law was signed in 2021 but faced several legal challenges prior to the Supreme Court decision. Once in effect, South Carolina doctors would be required to perform ultrasounds to check for a “fetal heartbeat,” typically detected about six weeks into a pregnancy.

In 2020, according to SCDHEC, more than 5,000 abortions were provided in the state, though not all abortions that occurred in South Carolina were provided to state residents. Some may have traveled from other states, and some Carolinians may have traveled to another state for an abortion.

In South Carolina, the following restrictions on abortion were in effect as of June 24, 2022:

Those restrictions may become null and void as the Fetal Heartbeat Act goes into effect.

South Carolinians seeking to terminate pregnancies have been less likely to use surgical procedures in recent years, leaning towards abortions induced by medication, according to statistics from the South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control.

According to SCDHEC, almost half the abortions in the state were induced by medications.

In December, the Food and Drug Administration lifted long-standing restrictions on mifepristone, allowing doctors to prescribe the medication online and send them to patients by mail.

Mifepristone and misoprostol were approved by the FDA for use in the first 10 weeks of pregnancy.

Misoprostol was available with a prescription before the FDA’s decision.

Attorney General Merrick Garland said in a statement Friday, in the wake of the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade, that states cannot ban medications used to bring about an abortion.

The medications cannot be banned based on disagreement with the federal government on their safety and efficacy.

SCDHEC’s data showed very few abortions were the result of medical emergencies or fetal anomalies.

In South Carolina, the overwhelming majority of abortions occurred within six weeks or less, according to SCDHEC. The majority of those are in the 20 to 29-year-old age group.

There was a 17% decline in the abortion rate in South Carolina between 2014 and 2017, from 6.4 to 5.3 abortions per 1,000 women of reproductive age. Abortions in South Carolina represent 0.6% of all abortions in the United States

The number of teenage pregnancies in South Carolina from 2010 to 2020 declined consistently, as did the number of fetal deaths and abortions relating to teen pregnancies.

Horry, Marion, Marlboro, Darlington, Dillon and Georgetown counties saw the same decline as the state for those years.

Florence County saw a decrease in teen pregnancies and teen abortions, but an increase in fetal deaths of pregnant teens.

More information about SCDHEC data can be found by clicking here.

The 2020 report is the most current. The 2021 Abortion Statistics Report is expected to be completed and available around the end of June.

Joining the ranks of Clemson doctoral students this Fall will be a full cohort of 12 accomplished individuals from the Clemson University Bridge to Doctorate (CUBD) Graduate Fellowship Program.

“We’re excited to welcome these accomplished men and women to Clemson to further their academic careers,” said President Jim Clements, CUBD Principal Investigator. “To attract a full 12-member cohort in this first group is an outstanding accomplishment for our faculty and staff as we continue to grow this program in the coming years to diversify and strengthen the STEM Ph.D. pipeline.”

Established this year with a $1 million grant from the National Science Foundation’s Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority Participation program, along with additional resources provided by the University, full financial support will be provided to the group of 12 incoming underrepresented Ph.D. students enrolled in select programs in the College of Engineering, Computing and Applied Sciences (CECAS) and the College of Science.

“These 12 remarkable students choosing to continue their education at Clemson is a testament to the work of not only our CUBD team but the tremendous academic reputation of Clemson University as a whole,” said Tonyia Stewart, Director of Graduate Recruitment and Inclusion in the College of Engineering, Computing and Applied Sciences.

Joining President Clements as co-PIs on the CUBD program are Clemson faculty members: Rajendra K. Bordia, materials science and engineering; Cindy Lee, engineering and science education; Oliver J. Myers, mechanical engineering; and Judith Salley-Guydon, biological and physical sciences at South Carolina State University.

The students will receive a $32,000 stipend for their first two years of education and research through the NSF’s funding, and the University will cover the cost of their remaining three years.

In addition to financial support, CUBD Scholars will benefit from Clemson’s supportive community, individual faculty and peer mentoring, advising, and advocacy. Beginning with the application process, CUBD Scholars have access to a built-in network for professional development and support as they pursue an advanced degree. Prospective students will complete a profile to express their interests, career goals and previous research experiences to be paired with leaders from Clemson’s STEM ALL-IN program, a collaborative effort between CECAS and the College of Science to recruit and retain underrepresented students pursuing a graduate degree at the University.

Additionally, students have a research adviser and the opportunity for mentorship from others through the CUBD Faculty Mentor Network. Participating faculty help students navigate graduate school, conduct dissertation research, create and attain goals outlined in individual development plans and network with established industry professionals.
