Federal report says homelessness is down more than 22 percent in S.C., but shelters say otherwise

In a Mount Pleasant church, where another night of below-freezing temperatures meant another round of hot meals and fresh linens, volunteer Jerome Monroe was shocked to learn homelessness had declined in South Carolina.

Let alone by 22.5 percent, a number the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development reported last month after its annual "point-in-time" check.

Monroe stood next to a table topped with dozens of donated coats as more than 80 of Charleston’s homeless filtered into the shelter for the night.

"To tell me homelessness has decreased … Nobody would believe those numbers," said Monroe, who has volunteered at the emergency cold shelter for the last five years. "Considering South Carolina is a place where buildings are torn down."

The federal government says homelessness in Sou...

We should have known this sort of weather was in the forecast when South Carolina started talking about raising teacher pay.

Most educators figured it would be a cold day somewhere far south of here before that ever happened. And it still may be, but at least some folks are trying.

The state Department of Education is working on a plan to recruit and retain teachers, mostly in the rural school districts where they’re needed most. There are nearly 500 vacant teaching positions across the state right now.

It’s particul...

The elementary school kids who participate in the Green Heart Project’s urban farming program seem to grow up almost as quickly as the fruits and veggies they plant every school year.

The authority is negotiating to lease the quarter-acre property to the Green Heart Project starting in August...

Palm Beach Gardens DE Jarrett Jackson picks Louisville over South Carolina

Despite a late push from South Carolina, Jarrett Jackson held firm with his commitment to Louisville.

The three-star defensive end officially signed the Cardinals on Wednesday during the first day of the Early Signing Period. Jackson announced his decision at the Palm Beach Gardens Miller Ale House in front of friends and family.

With Louisville and South Carolina hats on the table, Jackson unzipped his jacket to unveil a red Louisville shirt as he pledged to the Cardinals for good. Jackson committed to Louisville on Aug. 14, but the Gamecocks made a late push for the talented senior.
