Coach Buddy Pough with team / SCSU.edu By Stacy M. Brown, NNPA Newswire Correspondent In South Carolina sports lore, no program is more revered by African Americans than the South Carolina State University Bulldogs. And, not many coaches are as beloved as Oliver “Buddy” Pough. When the Bulldogs face Delaware State on Saturday, Oct. 20 at Oliver C. Dawson Stadium, it’s quite possibly the last homecoming game for Pough, who’s not expected to return to the sidelines next year. “Well, we haven’t officially called it quits yet, but my contract is done,” Pough told NNPA Newswire this week. He said it’s been an up and down experience, first playing for and then coaching at his Alma Mater. Like he’s well-known for, Pough’s characterization of an “up and down” experience is modest.

After nearly two years as one of America's top voices on foreign policy, the 46-year-old South Carolina native will leave at year's end with a strong global profile -- and a reputation for standing up to the mercurial Trump. With speculation already building about her political future, she quickly denied any plans to challenge her boss in 2020, instead saying in the Oval Office on Tuesday it was "time to stand aside." "I don't have anything set on where I want to go," Haley said, with the president at her side. But wanting a break from the punishing Trump news cycle would surely be understandable. During her time at the United Nations, Haley -- a fellow Republican who previously served as South Carolina's governor -- was unafraid to speak her mind, often in fairly undiplomatic language. She was the face of … [Read more...] about Nikki Haley: from South Carolina state house to UN and now…?

by MEGAN RIVERS, ABC News 4 The "Wobble" has simple, repetitive dance moves. (WCIV) CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCIV) - While "The Shag" may be the official state dance in South Carolina, the official state "folk dance" in South Carolina, set by Act Number 329, is the square dance. There’s a petition to change the dance circling around the Lowcountry. The creator is hoping to get enough traction to head to Columbia. North Charleston native KJ Kearney suggested a variety of dances to replace square dancing, but he’s more concerned about ensuring whatever dance is selected, it represents all people of South Carolina. Tanya Christopher of Amorous Dance in West Ashely is teaching us the ins and out of our state folk dance, the square dance.
