Booster Club needs a boost

It takes a lot to support the numerous programs and activities the Custer School District offers. From sports, music, art and drama, students have a variety of educational, fun and rewarding extracurricular activities to choose from. That’s were the Custer Wildcat Booster Club comes into play. 

“I don’t think people know just how many groups benefit from us or how many could if they just asked,” said Misty Fish, booster club board member. “We help with all activities: sports, band, choir, drama, Destination Imagination. It doesn’t matter what comes to us, we try to help them if we can.”

Police coming under more public scrutiny

Smart cell phones with video capability are everywhere today. That’s the only reason we saw a South Carolina police office shooting a fleeing unarmed man in the back. This video prompted a national outcry and once again brought to the public’s attention questions about police conduct when confronting an uncooperative suspect. This man didn’t appear to pose any kind of threat to law enforcement, yet he was shot in the back five times. 

Officer Michael Slager of North Charleston Police has been charged with murder in the shooting death of Walter Scott who had been stopped for a broken tail light on his newly purchased car. It turns out Scott was behind on his support payments for his four children and afraid that the police were going to arrest him and put him in jail.
