Lifetime of wins

He has stood on the Summerville sideline for what seems forever. He has won more games than anyone else. He's old, 82. Every year could be his last. But John McKissick knows â€" there's no place he'd rather be. Walk with him. Try to imagine. One job, one town, an entire life. Could you find faith? Could you give it? In all your seasons?

Citadel professor wins award

A knack for getting students excited about concepts that would make the average person's eyes glaze over has earned a Citadel biology professor national recognition. Alix Darden was named the 2008 South Carolina Professor of the Year by the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching and the Council for Advancement and Support of Education.

WWII pilot recalls Pearl Harbor attack

Thomas McKelvey thought he'd won a plum assignment after completing Navy pilot school in 1941. He was just 22, a country boy from the then-tiny town of Moncks Corner. He imagined what flying adventures awaited as he headed across the country to his duty station on the picturesque islands of Hawaii. He arrived at the Navy base in Pearl Harbor just two weeks before the infamous Japanese attack that plunged America into World War II, shaped McKelvey's life and cemented the legacy of an entire generation.

Volunteer gets into character for work

Akiel Jamar McKnight, dressed in his sharply-creased green JROTC uniform, strode through the halls of St. John's High School recently, exchanging greetings with every teacher and staff member he saw. It was McKnight's morning as hall monitor, an internship program under Principal Adrian Busch, who praised McKnight as he walked by. It's one of the many roles for the outgoing, energetic senior who maintains an A average despite a busy volunteer schedule.

Grave concern over lot

Calvin Coolidge DuPont has an undeveloped lot in a cozy West Ashley neighborhood, and he is willing to give the land away to whoever wants it. The only catch: A dozen or more bodies are buried on the property. DuPont, 80, inherited the private, family cemetery on Pebble Road several years ago, and he doesn't want to maintain it any longer.
