Factors to Consider Before Buying an Engagement Ring

- Jewelry Preference: Sapphire? Ruby? Emerald? Diamond? At Colucci Jewelry, we have a wide range of gemstones to choose from which to choose, as well as settings and metal types. Ask your fiancée’s friends or family for tips, or better yet, ask her yourself if you can do so without spoiling the surprise.
- 4 C’s: The four C’s represent color, clarity, cut, and carat weight. If you’re just starting your search, this system might be foreign to you, but it is a trusted grading system used throughout the world. We recommend you visit Colucci’s Jewelers for a quick education on this system, so you can find a quality diamond at a price that fits within your budget.

There’s a plan to grow the Catawba reservation in York County. Here’s what it’ll take
The more than 600-acre Catawba Indian Nation reservation in York County may grow a little larger. York County Council passed the first of three readings needed to expand the reservation. The initial decision was by title only, meaning details haven’t yet been finalized into an ordinance. The title only approach isn’t uncommon.

The more than 600-acre Catawba Indian Nation reservation in York County may grow a little larger.
York County Council passed the first of three readings needed to expand the reservation. The initial decision was by title only, meaning details haven’t yet been finalized into an ordinance. The title only approach isn’t uncommon. Full details on such decisions then come before second and third reading, and, when required, a public hearing.
The title only decision mentions expansion of the reservation by several listed properties, but also future expansion of land contiguous to the Rock Hill-area reservation as outlined in a federal agreement.
A 1993 federal land claims settlement agreement restored and extended federal rights for the Catawbas. It repealed a prior act from 1959. It provided for expansion of the reservation and conveyed property from the state to the U.S. Bureau of Indian Affairs as trustee. It also made the tribe eligible for gaming, key to the opening earlier this month of a new Kings Mountain, N.C. casino.
That North Carolina project involved almost 17 acres acquired by the Catawbas in 2020 when it was trusted by the U.S. Department of Interior.
The ongoing York County decision involves five properties. They’re on Reservation Road and River People Trail, most of them where Reservation intersects with George Dunn Road and Indian Trail.
They combine for more than 13 acres. County land records show all the properties changed hands from private owners to the Catawbas in 2010 or 2012, then to the federal government in 2013. Properties range from half an acre to 10 acres.
The properties combine, according to county land records, for $203,000 in property value.
According to county spokesperson Trish Startup, the five land parcels are being held in trust by the Bureau of Indian Affairs. Expansion of the reservation requires approval by the secretary of the interior. The tribe can submit an application for review by the bureau and upon approval, the parcels are held in trust.
The move also requires an approval by county council and a law or joint resolution by the state general assembly, signed by the governor.
Laney Buckley, community services director for the Catawba Nation, issued the following statement:
“The action follows the process outlined in our settlement agreement for the tribe to add lands to our reservation. These five contiguous parcels, totaling 13 acres, have been acquired over time and taken into federal trust, but the tribe recently has been able to start developing projects on the land. We want to be good neighbors and remain in compliance with the settlement.”
The earliest county council could take up its next reading is Aug. 16.
Goats lend a hoof in SC forest restoration project
The goats are back! The Converse Heights Neighborhood Association has brought a herd of goats back to Crystal Springs Ravine with the help of the Trees Coalition to continue its mission of rehabilitating the neighborhood green space. “We’ve got about 40 in there this time because we’ve got a much wider area for them to roam around in. They did such a good job the first time,” said Wesley Hammond, a member of the Converse Heights Neighborhood Association board. The goats began their work on the rav...
The goats are back!
The Converse Heights Neighborhood Association has brought a herd of goats back to Crystal Springs Ravine with the help of the Trees Coalition to continue its mission of rehabilitating the neighborhood green space.
“We’ve got about 40 in there this time because we’ve got a much wider area for them to roam around in. They did such a good job the first time,” said Wesley Hammond, a member of the Converse Heights Neighborhood Association board.
The goats began their work on the ravine in the spring of 2020 in the section along Crystal Drive, going back to their home farm for the winter. This summer, the goats will graze in sections along Woodburn Road and Sherwood Circle.
And once again, they’re a big hit with their new neighbors, attracting a number of visitors.
“The kids are fascinated and it’s just a nice addition. It’s something special about seeing am animal that’s working our in the woods there. It kind of gives you a good feeling,” Hammond said.
The goats are eating the ivies and other invasive species that have taken over the ravine. While the last group of goats were mostly South African Boars, this group is a mix of Spanish Nubians and Kiko Pygmies, says their handler Anthony Radziewicz of the Trees Coalition.
“The Spanish Nubians are a little less likely to get as close to people,” he said, which they hope will prevent the issues they had last time with goats approaching and even clearing the fences around their work areas.
The Trees Coalition has also partnered with other neighborhoods to address issues with invasive species like kudzu and wisteria. In 2019, goats took care of the overgrowth at Adams Park in Beaumont Village Neighborhood.
The goats provide a natural solution for eliminating these plants instead of expensive machinery or pesticides.
“We had started three years ago using the goats for kudzu control. They did a great job the first year, so the second year, we had six different sites and kind of expanded what they’re getting rid of, not just kudzu, but in here where we have a lot of English ivy, Elaeagnus, Chinese Parasols, trying to get some different species,” Radziewicz said. “Last year was definitely a really good success for them here. We’ve seen a lot of areas that we’d never even been able to get to before so that was promising.”
The goal of the Crystal Springs Ravine Project is to restore the 16-acre area as a healthy Piedmont Forest. Hammond said the restored ravine would be left in a natural state and about 100 native trees have been planted in the area so far.
“We’re not trying to make a park, more like a nature preserve. We want just to make it a nice area where people can come and walk and enjoy it and enjoy the stream and make it a good part of the neighborhood,” Hammond said.
What you need to know as another York County bridge, this one over I-77, will close

The bridge over I-77 at Gold Hill Road will close next month, as part of ongoing traffic improvements there.
The City of Tega Cay issued a news alert on Wednesday. According to the alert, the bridge will close from midnight on Aug. 20 to 5 a.m. on Aug. 23. The interstate on and off ramps will remain open during the weekend closure.
The South Carolina Department of Transportation awarded the construction contract at Gold Hill to Boggs Construction. Improvements will create the state’s first diverging diamond interchange. A reduction of left turns will, traffic planners say, reduce congestion at what can be a heavy traffic area. Particularly during the weekday evening rush as commuters come back into York County from Charlotte.
Pennies for Progress, the county cent sales tax program that funds road work, lists the interchange as a $12.5 million project set to wrap up this year. Voters approved the project as part of a larger referendum in 2011.
The Gold Hill interchange improvement runs along Gold Hill from Cassandra Court to Wilson Business Parkway and Bromley Park Drive. It also includes ramps on and off of the interstate in both directions.
The Gold Hill work comes as part of an unprecedented list of I-77 road upgrades in York County. There’s ongoing work to improve the exit 85 interchange between Baxter and Kingsley in Fort Mill. Almost $75 million in state money will go to that interchange and the one at exit 83 in Rock Hill. There’s a new Rock Hill interchange coming to serve the planned Carolina Panthers headquarters.
The most recent work to gain public attention was the resurfacing of I-77 southbound lanes over the Catawba River in May. That bridge work slowed and rerouted traffic for weeks. Similar work will follow, though it hasn’t been announced when, to resurface the northbound lanes.
There aren’t many alternate routes nearby Gold Hill Road that cross the interstate. The nearest interchanges are at S.C. 160 to the south and Carowinds to the north. Another option to cross the interstate is Coltharp Road.

SouthTown Wake Park in Rockhill, SC
Just about 90 minutes from here is one of my favorite day trip destinations. York County, South Carolina, has so many fun adventures to enjoy. My children and I have made countless trips and have yet to scrape the surface of possibilities. However, SouthTown Wake Park is worth the trip all on its own! This Aquapark has something for all adventure levels, so don’t worry if you don’t share the same enthusiasm for watersports with the rest of your family.
Traditionally wakeboarding consists of a boat pulling a rider around a body of water from a two rope, while they stand on a single ski. At SouthTown Wakepark riders are pulled around one of two lakes by a cable system. This activity is fun and in no time you can be zipping across the lake. SouthTown also offers wakeboarding if you have never done anything like this and want to ease into it.
The instructor will start you out on the straight cable, where there aren’t any features to complicate things. Here you will learn the basics and what to do if you let go of the cable system. Once you feel at ease, it’s on to the lake with the ramps and a cable system that loops the lake. Don’t worry, you won’t be jumping any features just yet, you’ll just work on holding on as that cable rounds the corner.
Wakeboarding is one of the fastest-growing extreme sports, and my son loved his time on the lake. He took to it and if we lived closer, he would be there every week.
SouthTown also has a floating obstacle course for families to enjoy. This is a great activity to tire those kids out, as it takes a ton of energy to climb and jump over the obstacles. While you don’t need to be straight off the set of “American Ninja Warrior” to enjoy the course, I do caution you against participating if you have any back issues. While falling off the platform requires little effort, pulling yourself back up onto the platform requires a bit more muscle.
If you enjoyed this course, you can Tackle the Floating Obstacle Course at Charleston Aqua Park
For younger kids, and parents that aren’t into the excitement involved in the previously mentioned activities, SouthTown offers kayaking and paddleboarding. Parents can paddle across the lake with the younger kids, over to the floating obstacle course to wave hi! That way everyone gets some time out on the water. This is a great way to practice in a controlled environment if you are considering investing in paddlesports for your family (which we encourage!)
In addition to all of the fun on the water that is offered at SouthTown, they also have things that don’t require you to get wet. Land-lovers can enjoy a game of disc golf or cornhole. There are picnic tables to sit at and the pro-shop offers soft drinks and ice cream for sale.
The $45 First Time All Access Pass is the best deal for those new to wakeboarding and gets you everything you need for an entire day at SouthTown Wakepark!

Kickoff to the 2021 College Football season is in sight with Georgia set to square off against Clemson in a battle of two highly-ranked teams. Hopes are high for the Bulldogs this season as Kirby Smart and company return one of the most talented quarterbacks in the country, weapons around him on offense and a veteran group of defenders. With so many contributors expected to play a part, Dawgs247 has taken on the challenge of ranking Georgia's most important players for the upcoming season. We have reached the top 10 and continue today with Derion Kendrick at No. 6.
Derion Kendrick (Senior DB)
Hometown:Rock Hill, S.C.
High School: South Pointe
Previous School: Clemson
247Sports Composite Ranking: Five-star (2018)
No. 26 nationally
No. 4 wide receiver
No. 1 in the state of South Carolina
247Sports Transfer Portal Ranking: Four-star (2021)
No. 6 nationally
No. 1 cornerback
Derion Kendrick arrives at Georgia after playing his first three seasons collegiately just down the road at Clemson. Week 1, he'll be matched up against his former teammates with the Bulldogs set to take on the Tigers September 4 in Charlotte, N.C. Kendrick, cleared of all legal issues that caused his dismissal from Clemson, has both the talent and experience that Georgia needs to help fill voids at the cornerback position, making him important not only Week 1 but also the rest of the season.
During his first two seasons at Clemson, Kendrick played in all 30 games for the Tigers, including a pair of National Championship Games. He was recruited out of high school by Dabo Sweeney as a wide receiver and finished his freshman season with 15 catches for 210 yards to go along with 41 yards of rushing on five carries. Then, in the spring of going into his sophomore season, Kendrick was needed as an emergency sub at cornerback where he eventually earned a starting role. The Rock Hill, S.C. native played and started in all 15 games, earning Second-Team All-ACC honors. He was credited with 51 tackles with 3.0 for loss, six pass breakups and two interceptions. He also returned two kickoffs for 51 yards and nine punts for 16 yards. That season, Kendrick broke out with a six-tackle, one-pass-breakup performance against No. 12 Texas A&M. Just over a month later, he recorded his first career interception and took it 38 yards for a touchdown in a win over Florida State. Then, in the College Football Playoffs, Kendrick posted a career-high nine tackles in Clemson's Fiesta Bowl win versus No. 2 Ohio State and followed that up with another nine against No. 1 LSU in the National Championship.
Kendrick built upon his strong play as a sophomore this past season, being voted as a First-Team All-ACC selection by the medial panel and the league's 15 head coaches. He was also a first-team all-conference player according to the Associated Press and Pro Football Focus. In nine games, eight of which he started, Kendrick was credited with 20 tackles, six pass breakups, a sack, an interception and a fumble recovery, which he returned 66 yards for a touchdown. His interception came in Clemson's beatdown of No., 7 Miami while he contributed four tackles and two pass breakups in a loss at No. 4 Notre Dame. Then he matched his previous four-tackle total in the ACC Championship Game rematch against the Fighting Irish with one of them for a sack. Against No. 3 Ohio State in the Sugar Bowl, Kendrick recorded a pass breakup.
With Georgia losing five defensive backs to the NFL and another three to transfer, the addition of Kendrick is certainly one of the most important storylines of the offseason for the Bulldogs. Cornerbacks Ameer Speed, Jalen Kimber and Kelee Ringo, all of whom competed for a starting position this spring, possess the talent necessary to play in the SEC, however, none of them have the experience that Kendrick brings to the table. With 23 career starts under his belt, several of them against top tier competition, Kendrick gives Georgia a veteran option in the secondary that they didn't have coming out of spring. Expect to see Kendrick on the field early and often this season, beginning September 4 against a group that should plenty of motivation for the senior to perform.
