Friday, October 24, more than 200 Trailmen members of Trial Life USA assembled on the grounds of “Camp Aiken,” formerly the “Boys Home of the South” property, for the first-ever South Carolina Upstate area-organized event at “Camp Aiken.” Eight church-sponsored troops participated in the event.

The Trailmen and Leaders camped out in multicolored tents in the camp ground area, Friday and Saturday nights.

Saturday morning, the campers were up before 7 a.m. to eat breakfast, so they could attend the “flag raising ceremony.”

American Legion Post 3 Color Guard performed the “flag raising ceremony” as the Bugler played “Reveille.”

Andrew Mitchell, a home schooled student from northern Spartanburg County, will continue to play basketball with the Landrum High School Cardinals basketball team.

The SC High School League Athletics Appeals Panel voted 4 to 2 to overrule a decision by the league Executive Director prohibiting Mitchell from continuing to play with the Landrum team after his parents moved into the Chapman High School Transportation Zone.

On September 11, the anniversary of the attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, students at Wood-ruff High School displayed flags from their vehicles.

In accordance with a district policy, apparently designed to prevent the display of Confederate Battle Flags, the high school principal removed U. S. flags from the vehicles resulting in complaints to  WORD Talk Radio’s Russ Cassell Show.
