“We really thought when we got there, we’d be fighting an attic fire,” said Richbourg. “So, we were thankful it was only smoke in the home and that it wasn’t much worse than it was.”
Richbourg said the … Read the rest

Poor school districts say Legislature violated court order

Posted on July 24, 2016 12:12 pm by Robert Joseph Baker

Attorneys for rural school districts contend legislators’ court-ordered plan for fixing South Carolina’s education system isn’t a plan at all, but an accounting of legislative meetings and list of budget items that don’t address the problems.
The latest court filing in the 23-year-old case accuses the Legislature of violating state Supreme Court orders and asks justices to at least set a new deadline of next summer.
Justices gave legislators an end-of-session deadline this year for submitting a plan to improve South Carolina schools, after ruling in November 2014 that poor, rural students lack educational opportunities.
Legislators’ 18-page report listed eight … Read the rest

Be ‘alligator safe’ around the water

Posted on July 24, 2016 6:06 am by Robert Joseph Baker

Nearly any water body in the coastal plain of South Carolina may contain alligators, and the mere presence of alligators in or adjacent to their natural habitat in South Carolina is a normal occurrence and not normally an emergency requiring the animal’s removal, according to biologists with the S.C. Department of Natural Resources. Furthermore, alligators less than four feet are typically not large enough to be dangerous to people unless handled. Never approach an alligator of any size, keep your distance and leave them alone!

In addition, keep these safety tips in mind:
* Never feed alligators. Not only is … Read the rest
