SUMMERVILLE, S.C. (WCSC) - Located at the corner of Berlin Myers Parkway and Highway 78, a 57-acre multi-use property will bring new development to the Summerville area by early 2025.
The property, named Sawmill, will include 474 multi-family apartment units, offices, restaurants, hotels, stores, banks, outdoor spaces and a 40,000-square-foot Roper St. Francis facility.
Summerville spokesperson Mary Edwards said the task to get the development started was a long process.
“It’s something that people have been wanting for a long time, and council has really supported the developers, too. It’s a big deal for us; I mean, it’s a new big development that’s coming to our area,” Edwards said. “It’s something that’s needed. It’s something that the public has really wanted.”
The developers, Lee & Associates, said in a news release that “a new walkable community designed to better connect residents with the fun they want and services they need will be anchored by a major healthcare system.”
Although not everyone in the area is excited about the new development. Some members of the Summerville community shared their concerns on a Facebook post with over 400 comments mentioning traffic problems, school enrollment and housing availability.
Located near the development, the Spinx gas station may see increased traffic with the upcoming construction. Employee Rona Emons, shared her concerns.
“I don’t think we can really handle it because this road is already always backed up; it’s already hard to get in and out of the store,” she said. “I think that’s going to make it a lot worse unless they try to widen the road somehow, which I don’t know how they can do that. But yeah, it’s going to cause a lot of congestion in this area.”
In response to the concerns, Edwards said the city and developers studied research before deciding if the project was appropriate for the area.
“The town is growing really fast,” Edwards said. “So, we know that people want to come here, and they want to experience the area. We want to be able to provide these types of options for people when they come.”
Construction on the health care facility and multi-family apartment units will begin in early 2023.
“I’m kind of excited,” Emons said. “I’d like to get out. You know, it’d be nice to see something new in this area. So yeah, I’m looking forward to it in some ways, and otherwise, I’m kind of a little leery of it.”
Overall, the project is expected to cost $200 million.

Wolves secure spot in SAC Championship; Anderson sets new record
WINGATE, N.C. – Facing the fifth best rushing defense in the country, sophomore Mario Anderson (Summerville, S.C.) exploded for 184-yards on just 14 carries to not only score two touchdowns for the No. 22 Newberry College (8-2,6-2 SAC) football team, but also setting a new single-season record for rushing yards with 1,416 on the year as they Wolves turned in the 24-15 win over No. 20 Wingate in their fina...
WINGATE, N.C. – Facing the fifth best rushing defense in the country, sophomore Mario Anderson (Summerville, S.C.) exploded for 184-yards on just 14 carries to not only score two touchdowns for the No. 22 Newberry College (8-2,6-2 SAC) football team, but also setting a new single-season record for rushing yards with 1,416 on the year as they Wolves turned in the 24-15 win over No. 20 Wingate in their final regular season contest.
With the win the Wolves end up in a four-way tie atop the Piedmont Division which the Wolves win by virtue of a 2-1 head-to-head record against the tied teams and the head-to-head victory over Wingate, who also held a 2-1 head-to-head record against those teams. Newberry will play host to Mars Hill in the SAC Championship game next weekend in Newberry, S.C.
Despite having the ball for only 16:29 of the ball game, the Wolves were able to tally 292 yards of offense and get big plays from their special teams and defensive units to secure the win. Graduate Dre Harris (Greenville, S.C.) completed seven passes on the day for 129 yards.
Junior Chucky Roach (Sumter, S.C.) led the team with eight tackles while senior AJ Valentine (Johnston, S.C.) also recorded eight tackles, including 1.5 TFLs on the day. Freshman Jalen Stradford (Rock Hill, S.C.) tallied six tackles on the day and added an interception to his stat line. Junior Malik Devine-Brown (St. Petersburg, Fla.) and sophomore Khris Walton (Marrillville, Ky.) each combined for the lone sack for the Wolves on the day.
After the Wolves were forced off the field in their first drive of the contest, the Bulldogs were able to drive down the field for an 11-play drive that ended with three points on the board for Wingate. Newberry was quickly forced off the field in their second drive as well but would stonewall the Wingate offense again in the redzone forcing a field goal attempt. The momentum would then start to swing in the Wolves favor as Valentine would bust through the line and block the field goal attempt that was returned 60-yards by junior Melvin Lundy (Sumter, S.C.) to give Newberry their first lead at 7-3.
The next Wingate drive would come to an early close as Stradford would pull in the interception at the Wingate 41-yard line and set the Wolves up with fantastic field position. Just four plays later Anderson would record his first touchdown of the day as he scampered with from 14-yards out to give Newberry the 14-3 advantage. The two teams would trade field goals in the final two drives of the opening half as the Wolves held the 17-6 lead at the halftime break.
Wingate was able to pick up another field goal to start off the third quarter to pull back within eight points before the two teams would trade scoreless drives. The Wolves picked up their second drive of the quarter following a touchback by the Bulldogs, and it would take just three plays for the Wolves to put points on the board as accounting for 70-yards of the 80-yard drive, Anderson dove for the pylon after a 63-yard sprint that not only gave the Wolves the 24-9 lead but would push him over the old record mark of 1,301 on the season.
While the Wolves would not score another point in the contest, the defense would continue to hold strong until just under a minute remaining in the game when Wingate scored their first touchdown, but the Wolves would line up in victory formation after a failed onside kick by the Bulldogs gave them possession and the rounded out their 24-15 win.
A week separates the Wolves and a date with the Lions of Mars Hill University for the SAC Championship that’s slated for a 1:00 p.m. kick-off.

SUMMERVILLE — Two teams with aspirations of winning a Region 7-AAAAA championship battled on Friday night as West Ashley visited Summerville at John McKissick Field.
West Ashley entered the game coming off its first loss of the season, falling to Ashley Ridge last week. The Wildcats already have set a school record for wins in a season with seven, while Summerville is having its best season since 2019 when the Green Wave won eight games.
Summerville senior quarterback Campbell McCurry passed for more than 200 yards and three touchdowns, adding a touchdown on the ground, to lead the Green Wave to a 34-13 win.
Summerville improved to 7-1 overall and 2-0 in region play with a 34-13 win. West Ashley dropped to 7-2 overall and 1-2 in the region.
Quintrelle Pettiford caught two touchdown passes and had 94 yards on three catches for Summerville.
An aggressive Summerville defense limited the Wildcats to just over 100 yards in total offense through most of the game.
“It’s a good win because we are at the most important part of the season,” Summerville head coach Ian Rafferty said. “We made a lot of mistakes, lot of penalties. There are certainly a lot of things that we need to clean up, but we played well enough to beat a good football team.”
Special teams and big plays were the story of the game.
Summerville scored on its third offensive play of the game, a 62-yard pass connection from McCurry to Pettiford for an early 7-0 lead.
A high punt snap by Summerville late in the first quarter resulted in a 29-yard loss and West Ashley took advantage with a 21-yard drive as Kevin Brown scored on a one-yard run. After a blocked extra point by Summerville’s Michael Jenkins, the Wave led, 7-6.
That lead expanded seconds later as Summerville’s Marquez Spells, who along with Jenkins was selected to the South Carolina Shrine Bowl team last week, returned the ensuing kickoff 89 yards to give the Green Wave a 14-6 lead with 10:11 left in the first half.
Another special-teams mistake by Summerville, a muffed punt, gave the Wildcats a first-and-goal at the Summerville eight-yard line. The Wildcats, however, were unable to take advantage, missing a 23-yard field goal attempt as time expired in the first half.
West Ashley attempted an onside kick to start the third quarter, but the Green Wave fell on the ball near midfield.
Two penalties pushed Summerville back to its own 35 but on third-and-21, McCurry connected with Yannick Smith on a 65-yard bomb to push the Green Wave to a 21-6 lead with 9:44 left in the third.
“We have some playmakers on offense,” Rafferty said. “If teams try to take away something, we feel we are good enough to beat you in other ways. These kids are playing with a lot of confidence right now. Our coaches are doing a great job. They do all the work. I just stand out here and yell at officials.”
West Ashley returned the favor on special teams as a high punt snap resulted in a 28-yard loss and set the Green Wave up at the Wildcats’ 13-yard line. Two plays later, McCurry tossed his third touchdown pass of the game, his second to Pettiford, from 12 yards out for a 28-6 lead with 2:16 left in the third quarter.
A 47-yard pass from McCurry to Spells set up Summerville’s next score, McCurry’s seven-yard run, and Summerville led, 34-6, with 9:39 remaining in the game.
West Ashley got on the board again in the final minutes with Brown scoring on a nine-yard run.
Summerville will host Ashley Ridge next week while West Ashley will host Fort Dorchester.
Strongest Quake of the Fall Strikes South Carolina; Over 1,000 Report Shaking to USGS
Weatherboy Team Meteorologisthttps://weatherboy.com/strongest-quake-of-the-fall-strikes-south-carolina-over-1000-report-shaking-to-usgs/
An ongoing swarm of earthquakes sprung back to life last night, with the strongest quake of the fall striking central South Carolina, generating more than 1,000 “Did you feel it?” reports to the USGS Earthquake website from area residents.

An ongoing swarm of earthquakes sprung back to life last night, with the strongest quake of the fall striking central South Carolina, generating more than 1,000 “Did you feel it?” reports to the USGS Earthquake website from area residents. On a 10 point Roman Numeral scale where I or 1 is the least shaking and X or 10 is the most, USGS rated this a VI or 6 based on those submitted reports.
The magnitude 2.5 seismic event, which generated strong shaking, was located in Elgin, South Carolina, home to dozens of earthquakes that have mysteriously rocked central South Carolina since last December. The quake hit at 9:33 pm local time. As of publication time of this article, 1,233 people reported they felt shaking to USGS from this earthquake.
The mysterious swarm began on Monday, December 27, at 2:18 pm in the afternoon. That first 3.3 magnitude earthquake hit 30 miles north of Columbia, South Carolina at a depth of only 3.1 km. More than 3,100 residents reported to USGS they felt it at the time, with one report of shaking coming from as far away as Rock Hill, which is at the North/South Carolina state border. While many felt the earthquake, there was no reported damage in the Palmetto State. That earthquake was followed by 10 more ranging in intensity between a magnitude 1.5 to a magnitude 2.6 event. The second earthquake struck three hours twenty minutes after the first one. The last earthquake in that series struck on the morning of January 5, bringing a temporary end to the earthquakes there.
According to USGS, a swarm is a sequence of mostly small earthquakes with no identifiable mainshock. “Swarms are usually short-lived, but they can continue for days, weeks, or sometimes even months,” USGS adds. However, the South Carolina event doesn’t fit the typical definition of a swarm since the first event was substantially larger than the rest.
While dozens of earthquakes have struck the area since December, there have been recent pauses in activity. Today’s quake broke a 2-week pause from the last earthquake. The last quake struck on October 14; it has was rated a magnitude 1.3 event.
Scientists tied with the University of South Carolina’s School of Earth, Ocean, and Environment teamed up with Georgia Tech to install 86 nodal seismometers in and around the area experiencing this ongoing swarm. Scientists don’t know what’s driving this earthquake activity and the data from these newly installed devices should give earth scientists and geologists insight in what’s happening under ground here. Data from the new small seismometers are expected to be recorded starting in January.
According to the South Carolina Emergency Management Division (SCEMD), there are approximately 10-15 earthquakes every year in South Carolina, with most not felt by residents; on average, only 3-5 are felt each year. Most of South Carolina’s earthquakes are located in the Middleton Place-Summerville Seismic Zone. The two most significant historical earthquakes to occur in South Carolina were the 1886 Charleston-Summerville earthquake and the 1913 Union County earthquake. The 1886 earthquake in Charleston was the most damaging earthquake to ever occur in the eastern United States; it was also the most destructive earthquake in the U.S. during the 19th century.
Experts are concerned that a large scale earthquake will strike at some point of the future and bring about significant damage and loss of life. While more than 100 years have passed since the last large earthquake, a 2001 study titled “Comprehensive Seismic Risk and Vulnerability Study for the State of South Carolina” confirmed the state is extremely vulnerable to earthquake activity. The study, based on scientific research, provided information about the likely effects of earthquakes on the current population and on modern-day structures and systems, including roadways, bridges, homes, commercial and government buildings, schools, hospitals and water and sewer facilities.
No one is sure what’ll become of this steady stream of light earthquakes or whether or not something larger is looming. For now, the SCEMD has been sending out Tweets to the people of South Carolina encouraging them to be prepared for any disaster this year –earthquakes included.

The USGS is tracking three swarms of unusual earthquake activity around the country: here in South Carolina, another area around the New Madrid Seismic Zone around the Missouri / Kentucky / Arkansas / Tennessee borders, and the last on the slopes of Mauna Loa, the world’s largest active volcano in the world located on the Big Island of Hawaii.
