22 days 22 hours ago | | | Email

NEWBERRY — Going into the half, the Newberry Bulldogs led the Union County Yellow Jackets 21-14.Coming off an exciting down-to-the-wire win against Gaffney last week, the Union County Yellow Jackets went on the road to take on the Newberry Bulldogs on Friday. The game was Newberry’s first of the season, which gave the Yellow Jackets an experience advantage with one game already under their belt, but without any game film to watch, they did not know what to expect from the Bulldogs.


News Around Lockhart: An act of animal cruelty

Even if you didn’t, you’ve probably heard the phrase “If you build it, they will come” — which it immortalized.Well, how about “If you don’t build it, they won’t come”?When it comes to bicycles, cars, and public transportation, both sayings are true (even though one is decidedly catchier than the other).I recently moved back to Madison, Wisconsin after spendin...
