College of Charleston cruises past North Greenville, 92-60

Cameron Johnson was going to enjoy College of Charleston’s 32-point win over North Greenville on Sunday afternoon.

After signing a few autographs for the kids that hung around TD Arena after the Cougars’ 92-60 win over the Crusaders, Johnson planned on spending some time with his family, maybe getting an early dinner, but the Athens, Ga., native knew that most of his night would be spent at Addlestone Library studying for final exams.

Johnson, a senior majoring in business administration, still has two exams left and knows that time management this time of year – juggling his schedule between academics and basketball – can be difficult.

“I’m going to enjoy this win, spend some time with my family, but if you want to find me (Sunday night), I’m going to be at the library,” said Johnson, who...

Stanford’s Andi Sullivan, South Carolina’s Savannah McCaskill aiming for the same ending

Something stood out for one of Andi Sullivan’s older sisters after she watched Stanford’s quarterfinal win over Penn State in person over Thanksgiving.

It stood out more than the left-footed finish that gave the Cardinal an early two-goal lead.

Sullivan yells at people, her sister noted. Like, a lot.

Yeah, the Stanford captain acknowledged with a shrug, it happens. A lot.

"I think that could probably be surprising to her and a lot of the crowd," Sullivan said. "Because we were up 4-0."

It isn’t surprising to her teammates, the teammates who rarely use her first or last name when talking about her but instead use the nickname "Sunny." At least those teammates who don’t refer to her as "Mom," a nickname that predated her senior season by quite a bit...

Despite the hit from the threat of Hurricane Irma in September, the curators of downtown Charleston’s historic attractions expect to finish the year on budget.

The Charleston Museum gets about half its $2 million annual budget from ticket sales, according to director Carl Borick. As Irma’s path threatened Charleston as the weekend of Sept. 8 approached, ticket sales totaled about $500, compared to about $1,800 for a typical Thursday-Friday in September. The museum closed at mid-day Friday.

Irma swept through Charleston as a tropical storm three days later...

The past week in the Charleston economy

Hoping to appease seething customers and lawmakers, South Carolina Electric & Gas offered to cut power bills and make other concessions. Keller Kissam, the utility’s president of retail operations, announced plans to seek a 3.5 percent rate reduction, saying it would save customers $450 million over five years. Also, he said, shareholders will be responsible for the net construction costs remaining from the scuttled V.C. Summer project, taking lower earnings payouts over the next 50 years.

The project was halted by SCE&G and co-investor Santee Cooper in July after they spent more than $9 billion on it.

South Carolina church uses Bible and prayer to help faithful fight opioid addiction

South Carolina church battles opioid addiction with prayer

A South Carolina church is waging its own war on the opioid crisis – with the power of prayer.

First Baptist of Lexington’s Celebrate Recovery Program has helped people overcome their devastating addiction, not by using other drugs or through detox. At the program, the addicts fight their demons by finding God.

“I’ve tried many ways myself to get clean but it was not until I asked God to help me…. I was in detox and I asked God either let me die right now or help me live a life free of drugs and that was when I got clean,” Bobby Brazell told Fox News.

Brazell began using drugs 20 years ago after a two of his high school friends died in a car a crash.

“I didn’t want to feel anything, so I started taking pills, drinking a lot, taking...

Charleston-area home sales skidded with the onset of autumn, but a regional economist and local real estate agents believe the market hasn’t topped out.

"I don’t think it has peaked," said Mark Vitner, senior economist for Wells Fargo in Charlotte. "It’s leveled off more than peaked."

Affecting sales more than anything are a lack of homes on the market and rising prices, he said.

"We are running into some supply issues," Vitner said. "And because there aren’t a lot of homes for sale, we are seeing an increase in prices. Affordability has caused a pause in home sales."
