Cut-Ribbon-for-New-Jail

A goal set by Greenville County in 2004 has finally come to fruition with the opening of the Juvenile Detention Facility and State Operated Assessment Center. The facility that was used to house work release inmates is now being used to bring together different agencies that will give Greenville County juveniles the best possible help that is offered. The facility is being hailed as a “one of its kind” support system unlike anything in the Southeast.

“The Greenville County Juvenile Detention Facility connected with the state operated assessment center is going to be a very successful program. We’ve brought together multiple agencies, placed them in a shared location allowing them to share resources while creating the best possible environment for at risk children and their families,” said Joe Kernell, Greenville County Administrator.

“When they took my Sign, they Kind-of Put a Hole in my Heart”

Lloyd-Turner-Leaning-on-WallLloyd Turner bought a building at 641 Wade Hampton Boulevard in 1986 and opened Cameras Unlimited at that location.

On March 7th, 2013, he received a certified letter from Bryan Wood, Zoning Administrator for the City of Greenville. The sign on his property had been declared dilapidated.

Section 19-6.6.2(0) of the city code defines a dilapidated sign as “a sign that the administrator has determined is structurally unsound, has defective parts, or is in need of painting or maintenance.”

The City’s paid public servant saved his choice words for the veteran business owner for the last paragraph: “If the required corrective actions are not completed by the stated date, administrative summonses may be issued for you to appear in Municipal Court. For each violation you may be punished by a fine of not more than $1,205.00 and/or by imprisonment for not more than 30 days. Each day any violation continues shall constitute a separate offense.”

Deputy-Rob-Curtis

On June 15, 2013, while on secondary employment patrolling the area of Cedar Falls County Park, Deputy Robert Curtis came to the rescue of a couple that was drowning in the water. The woman was trying to teach her fiancée to swim when he started having difficulty. As she went out to help, the man grabbed onto her and ended up taking her under with him. During a foot patrol Curtis noticed the couple having difficulty staying afloat.
