Revered for more than a century, the rank of Eagle Scout in the Boy Scouts of America (BSA) has been an iconic recognition exclusively for young men, often called, “The Ph.D. of Boyhood.” Now, five young women from the Midlands have changed all that by becoming among the very first females in the nation to earn the organization’s highest honor, and area Scouting families and leaders could not be more proud of them.

Lexington County is seeking public comment regarding its environmental assessment for its proposed runway and hangar-area expansion projects at the Lexington County Airport. County Public Works officials are proposing to extend the existing 4,335-foot runway, designated 18-36, by about 1,165 feet, for a total length of 5,500 feet. The expansion would likely mean that small jet aircraft would be able to utilize the runway for landing and takeoff operations. [ 133 more words ]

False Mailer Distributed in Advance of Tuesday Primary FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Charli Wessinger is a Republican candidate in the Lexington County Council District 6 race. Recently, there was a mailer that was sent to Republican primary voter addresses that was a false endorsement by a group calling itself, “Democrats for Charli.” The Lexington County Democratic Party responded: “We do not now, nor have we ever endorsed Republicans in their primaries. These mailers did not come from us. If you have received one of these in the mail, or have any information regarding where they are actually coming from, please message us or email [email protected].” The return address on the mailer is the Publix at the Chapin Crossing shopping center in Chapin, SC. This mailer also fails to state by whom the mailer was paid and used stamps versus a postal permit number. The same people who sent the mailer posted a sign that said, “Democrats for Charli” on land owned by Broad River-Friarsgate, LLC, which is a Mungo-owned company. This was a desperate attempt to discredit Charli’s values and to mislead and manipulate voters with false information. Charli and many voters who reached out to the campaign, Republican and Democrat alike, are angry that someone would violate multiple federal laws while implying voters are not smart enough to know the difference. Actions like these erode the sanctity of the election process and perpetuate a distrust of the political process among citizens. Please vote on June 9th for Charli Wessinger!! 3 Attachments

LETTER TO THE EDITOR A 3 MEMBER, or a 5 MEMBER Irmo Town Council ? The campaigning efforts of Mark Pouliot and Hardy King essentially and foolishly suggest; ' Irmo does not need a 5 member council. A Mayor and two Council members are sufficient to govern Irmo and adequately represent ALL the people ' Mr. Pouliot's re-election brochure specifically promotes Hardy King, Julius Waites, and Mark Pouliot as a threesome, which should be elected as a threesome to Town Council, and effectively create a 'like minded' 3 member Council. Hardy King has promoted the three on his 'Hardy King' website. It is reasonable to conclude that these three candidates share their myopic view of Irmo, and have already agreed to support each other's views of Council activity. If elected, what would this accomplish? The threesome would vote in tandem for Council action essentially making the other Council member seats meaningless; meaning the other two Council member's opinions and votes would have no effect on Irmo Government because they would (same as today) be consistently out voted 3 - 2 (same as today). It is intuitively evident that only a PORTION of Irmo residents would be represented on the Town Council if this 'threesome' is re-elected. Their voting record and support for suppressive new and/or amended ordinances, speaks for itself. It seems unusual for Town Council candidates to actively and openly campaign together as a 'group'. Apparently it is not illegal, although by Law local elections are 'non-partisan', but voters can handle the issue by NOT voting for ANY of 'the threesome'. Hardy King Mark Pouliot Julius Waites Respectfully, Joe Nash
