• No one was injured during an armed robbery of the Dollar General store in Blackville on Friday morning.

    "At 9:20 a.m. a suspect entered the building dressed in a black hoodie with his face covered with what is believed to be a bandana," said Blackville Police Chief John Holston of the Oct. 13 incident.

It was homecoming night for Allendale-Fairfax High Friday in the Tigers’ Den.

The class AA top ranked Barnwell High Warhorses, however, didn’t show their adversaries any love as they dispatched the Tigers in front of their home crowd by a score of 39-0.

With the win, Barnwell High remains unbeaten at 8-0 and 3-0 in region play. The victory sets up a region showdown with No. 8 ranked Bamberg-Ehrhardt High Friday at W.W. Carter field.

For Barnwell High, however, the victory over the Tigers was far from picture perfect.

Everyone has an opinion these days.

That is especially apparent on Facebook and other social media sites where people can easily post their thoughts on anything and everything. However, do you really think before you post? Just because you can post, say or write something doesn’t mean you should.

Some people cite their First Amendment right of free speech as a reason for saying whatever they want, regardless of any implications those words could have.

After all, free speech means we can say or post whatever we want to, even if it’s untrue or harmful, right?
