LIBERTY — One year removed from an Upper State championship appearance and facing the challenge of playing in a new region this fall, the Liberty High School volleyball team doesn’t appear to have lost a step in an unbeaten start to region play.

The Red Devils’ strong play was on full display last week as they dropped region foe Chesnee in straight sets.

“We’re new to this region this year, so we really haven’t known what to expect,” Liberty head coach

Will the Fed’s plan work or leave us fed up?

Well, according to the newspapers, the Fed went ahead and did it: They raised interest rates by three-quarters of a percent.

What does that mean to you? Hundreds, or probably thousands of dollars down the drain if you’re carrying some credit card debt or have a variable rate mortgage, or if you need to buy a house or get a car loan.

The noble motive behind the Fed’s move — which to me  seems to benefit the bankers very nicely and hurt everybody else — was to bring inflation under control.

Inflating the cost of borrowing money is supposedly good because it will cause unemployment to go up (real people to

Courier Letters to the Editor

Dear Editor,

We live in the greatest nation ever. One thing I love is we have the freedom of speech.

Your paper is one of the few whose readers haven’t contributed some biased, narrow-minded rants. It’s good to see a paper whose contributors know how to properly present their opinion or opinions in an adult manner, not acting like angst-filled children.

People who write their opinion sometimes rant and rave over their subject. Use name calling for whatever they’re against. So childish it’s unbelievable! It’s as if

Dedicating or hesitating?

I attempt to keep my eyes and ears open to learn about the Holy Spirit and human behavior. In my spiritual journey, the situations I’ve encountered through counseling and teaching have graciously allowed me to see the importance of walking in humility through the awareness of God’s presence.

I’m not implying that I’ve arrived at a spiritual plateau where God and I float through the clouds together, but I do believe we can be as close to Him as we desire to be. To be honest, the more I discover about His written and specific will, the more I realize I have hardly scratched the surface of pleasing Him.

I’ve learned that our rebellious human nature loves being independent while God is constantly trying to reveal to

Sign up for free college courses

In an attempt to keep brain cells active this winter, I have signed up for a college course. The good news is that it’s all online and it’s free. The other good news is that it’s sponsored by a major university.

It’s called Open Courseware, and I found my class on the internet. Yale, Harvard, MIT, Stanford and many others have “massive open online courses,” also known as MOOCs, and their main purpose is to provide learning opportunities. You have to appreciate MIT especially. They make

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. — On a day when the defense was not at its best, it was the offense that found a way to get it done in the end for fifth-ranked Clemson.

And in particular, it was quarterback D.J. Uiagalelei and his much-maligned wide receivers.

Uiagalelei passed for 371 yards and five touchdowns, while his young receivers grew up in front of a nationally televised audience. It all added up to a 51-45 double-overtime victory over then-No.
