“New school building” — A primary school building is being built on the north side of the river, to accommodate the smaller children of the northern section of the city.

Every golfer has a routine, or should, at least. Sam Gallup is hoping to teach the importance of a routine for his new group of Greenville girls golfers.
Gallup, the new head coach for the Yellow Jackets, has quite a pedigree when it comes to playing golf and teaching the game. That pedigree begins with hockey, not a sport many would associate with having a solid relationship, as many say the swings for golf and a slap shot are miles different and can lead to issues in the opposite sport.
