• Much progress has been made on the municipal and county levels and local government heads say even better things are planned for 2015.

    Hardeeville Mayor Bronco Bostick, Ridgeland Mayor Joey Malphrus, and County Council chairwoman Barbara Clark gave updates on 2014 projects and discussed 2015 plans in the State of the County Breakfast last Wednesday morning.

    The event was held at Hilton Head Lakes lake club with residents, city and county councilors, county business owners, and corporate representatives present.


Before the jubilance there was silence.

Before Ridgeland-Hardeeville High’s boys basketball team continued its unrelenting surge to Columbia and its first appearance in the S.C. High School League Class AA state final, last Saturday morning the Jaguars quietly rode in the team bus headed to Florence and the Lower State final.

The usual jokes and laughter were absent. The only sound was the bus’ hum.


We’re going to let Ridgeland-Hardeeville High boys basketball coach Jeremiah Faber get to the heart of the significance of the team’s run to Columbia and the S.C. High School League Class AA state final.

Faber has been in the county since he began working at West Hardeeville High in 1984. He’s a former athletic director. He’s been a varsity basketball coach for 30 seasons. Twice he’s seen the schools consolidate.
