Youth shooters place in final competition

The S.C. DNR Youth Target Sports program just finished its last shooting competition for this season, and three high school freshman from the area placed in every category — trap, skeet and sporting clays. Gabe Boggs, Eric Brown and Jake Wolfe, pictured above, are one of the teams on Clemson’s 4-H shooting team. The three young men have only known each other for a few years, but have become an awesome team. Even though they attend separate high schools, they have also become great friends through their shooting and Clemson 4-H. In February, the team won third place in the trap division and then first place in the skeet division. They reecntly won third place for the sporting clay division. The tournament was a record-breaking event, with more then 600 competitors.

Education or proselytizing?

Dear Editor,

Nothing is wrong with students being taught world religions … the problem is at what age should that be considered essential learning? Learning doctrines of religions at the impressionable age of 11 and 12 years old is questionable.

It is quite evident our public schools are repressing

Largely because of the most
