Charleston chef takes different route to success

Charleston chef takes different route to success
If you watched the Food Network show Chopped around the spring of 2015, you probably remember 28-year-old Cole Poolaw. Poolaw, the executive chef at Barsa Tapas Lounge & Bar in Charleston, finished second on the reality-based game show, where he competed with three other chefs for a chance to win $10,000.

Hung jury, mistrial in murder case

A trial at the Marlboro County Courthouse began last week with one primary question:  Was it jealousy, or was it self defense that led Robert “Snapper” Allen to shoot Daniel Grooms to death in the early morning hours of January 21, 2015?
And it ended this week with no answer, as the jury was unable to reach a unanimous verdict and the judge had to declare a mistrial.

Murder trial ends in hung jury

The murder trial of Robert 'Snapper" Allen concluded Tuesday afternoon with a hung jury.  This means the case will be re-tried at a later date.  See Thursday's edition of the Herald-Advocate for a full recap of the case.

Bulldogs take revenge on Sharks

Bulldogs take revenge on Sharks
When the playoff brackets were announced and the Marlboro County High basketball players saw that they would be facing St. James in the first round, many saw an opportunity for a little bit of old-fashioned revenge.
Back in November, the Sharks took advantage of a muddy, slick field to push around the quicker, but smaller Bulldogs in the football playoffs.  St. James ended the Marlboro County season with a 27-18 upset.
