Grand Strand leaders seek uniform rules
Leaders from beachfront communities in Horry County want to develop uniform rules for things such as fireworks, dogs on the beach and beachside tents.
The Sun News of Myrtle Beach reports rules for such things vary by municipality in the Myrtle Beach area.
A group calling itself the Coastal Alliance is made up of area mayors and Horry County Council Chairwoman Liz Gilland. It wants to end confusion among beachgoers and tourists as to which rules apply where.
The alliance is inviting representatives of area beach patrols and the hospitality industry to a meeting next month to work out the details.
Any changes would still have be approved by each local government.
Beaufort County again studying Daufuskie ferry
HILTON HEAD ISLAND The economy is prompting Beaufort County to again study a regional ferry linking Hilton Head and Daufuskie islands with Beaufort and Savannah, Ga.
The Island Packet of Hilton Head reports Beaufort County administrator Gary Kubic says regional service could stabilize declining property values on Daufuskie and boost tourism and development.
Various groups have studied the idea but Kubic says the economy justifies another look. He says the resort that was once a major Daufuskie employer filed for bankruptcy last year.
The county has approached Savannah officials about sharing the cost of the study and might also approach Chatham County, Ga.
Beaufort County pays private ferries to provide transportation to Daufuskie, but it's become more expensive as fewer tourists and contractors use it.
5 state vehicles, boat destroyed near Anderson
ANDERSON Authorities say an arsonist destroyed five state vehicles and a boat outside Anderson that could cost taxpayers $150,000.
Authorities think someone cut through a locked fence at a Department of Health and Environmental Control parking lot and broke into the vehicles before setting them on fire around 5 a.m. Saturday.
DHEC spokesman Thom Berry says replacing the two sedans, two pickups, a station wagon and boat will cost between $100,000 and $150,000. He says the state had only liability insurance on the high-mileage, older vehicles, and the policies don't cover arson.
