Letter: Thanks for articles on Clarendon County Fire Department

Posted on August 7, 2017 3:03 am by Submitted via Email

EDITOR’S NOTE: The following letter was written in response to a series of three articles written by Robert J. Baker about the Clarendon County Fire Department’s 40th anniversary. We would be remiss if we did not thank the historical research and photographs provided by former Chief Carter Jones. He really did a majority of the work.

Allow me to first thank The Manning Times for the in depth, historically accurate account of the formation of the Clarendon County Fire Department. The articles were very well written, informative and worthy of saving for future generations.
It occurred to me that, over … Read the rest

Dingle guilty of being a class act

Posted on August 6, 2017 7:07 pm by Robert Joseph Baker

One of the judges at Saturday night’s Dancing with the Clarendon County Stars said that Judge James Dingle was “guilty of being a class act.”
He had just danced with Linsy Wells. It was the culmination of a request made by Leigh Ann Maynard and me less than three months ago. According to Judge Dingle, we are “always up to something, usually no good.”
Judge James Dingle is one of my favorite people, if not my favorite person.
I have never met a human being that will literally do anything for anyone. Anyone who needs anything can go to him, … Read the rest

CCFD investigating cause of fire that destroyed home

Posted on August 5, 2017 11:11 am by Staff Reports

The Clarendon County Fire Department is still investigating the cause of a fire that destroyed a two-story home on Telegraph Road late Sunday evening.

“The fire did appear to start in an attached garage; it quickly extended into the entire living space,” said Bruner. “This was very unfortunate for the family. This was a two-story house, and my understanding was the second story had a bonus-room type area that was unfinished.”
Bruner said the home … Read the rest
