Clemson

The Tigers got all their points from a punt return, fumble recovery for a touchdown and three field goals.

A Camden woman was killed this past Friday around midday in an accident on I-20 in Kershaw County.  Kershaw County Coroner Johnny Fellers said that  twenty-six year old Lisa Marie Munn of Camden died of multiple  blunt force trauma. According to lance corporal David Jones with the South Carolina Highway Patrol the accident took place around 11:45 Friday morning.  Jones said the accident took place near the 97 mile marker in the westbound lane of I-20 near Camden.  Fellers says it appears that Munn’s vehicle ran into the back of a construction truck parked at the side of the road.  Fellers said the accident is still under investigation by the Kershaw County Coroner’s Office and the South Carolina Highway Patrol.  Another accident took place shortly afterwards in the westbound lane and two people were flown out.  The second accident thought to be a result of backed up traffic.  That accident involved two cars- one person was ejected from a vehicle and another person had to be extricated from a vehicle.  That accident took place near the 98 mile marker.

Lugoff Fire-Rescue crews were dispatched by Kershaw County E9-1-1 Dispatch to respond to five calls during one 24-hour shift  last Thursday. Crews normally average 1-2 calls per day. Crews responded to three motor vehicle crashes; all three crashes were on I-20 with two of the three involving commercial vehicles. Lugoff crews worked closely with other public safety crews from the SC Highway Patrol, the Kershaw County Sheriff’s Department, and Kershaw Health EMS to provide rescue services for the crashes. All preliminary information on the scenes revealed minor injuries. Fortunately, no hazardous materials were being carried by the commercial vehicles.

Crews were also sent to an active natural gas leak behind the Carpet Gallery on US 1 near Kornegy Funeral Home apparently cut by digging operations. Crews arrived to find pressurized natural gas rapidly flowing out of a hole behind the business. Ladder 10 connected a large water supply line to a fire hydrant and placed a large attack line with firefighters in the event the gas ignited. US 1 was closed by Marshal 1 and Service 10 and detoured from near Richardson Boulevard to Truesdale Ave for about 45 minutes with assistance from the Kershaw County Sheriff’s Department. The Kershaw County School District temporarily locked down all the schools in the area until the leak was stopped by SCE&G crews at the leak site. There were no injuries in the incident and SCE&G crews were able to quickly shut off the leaking gas.

Finally, crews quickly unlocked an 18-month old child locked inside a vehicle without air conditioning off Glen Drive in Lugoff in the heat of the day. “Thursday was an unusually busy day for our staff, but I am very pleased with how all of our crews handled each emergency. I am also pleased with how well our agency works with other agencies on every incident to provide the best services to those we aid; unfortunately that does not happen nationwide. This is another example of why I continually have citizens tell me how proud they are of our department and staff” Lugoff Fire Chief Dennis Ray stated.

Lugoff Fire-Rescue reminds everyone that October is Fire Prevention Month and to make sure every family reviews basic fire prevention in the home to include checking smoke detectors, practicing an escape plan to get out of the home, talking with kids about dangers of matches and lighters, and practicing safe cooking in the kitchen. Lugoff Fire-Rescue can be reached at 803-438-2553 for more information, to schedule a free smoke detector installation in homes inside the Lugoff Fire District, and to schedule a free car seat installation or seat check.

Few details as yet but an accident on I-20 near mile marker 97 on I-20 near Camden has resulted in a fatality.  According to spokesperson for the South Carolina Highway Patrol the accident took place shortly before 12noon and possibly involved a vehicle verses a tractor/trailer truck.  Traffic on the westbound lane of I-20 near Camden has been backed up.  Emergency crews from the Camden Fire Department as well as Kershaw County EMS along with personnel from the South Carolina Highway Patrol are on the scene.

The Kershaw County School District (KCSD) has been awarded a $12,761 grant from the SC Arts Commission for the 2014-2015 school year to implement the district’s five-year strategic plan including the elementary strings program.  The elementary strings programs at Camden Elementary and Doby’s Mill Elementary are also supported by the Upton Foundation.  

“This grant will allow the school district to enhance arts programs at all of our schools,” said KCSD Executive Director of Instructional Support Alisa Goodman. “In support of our mission, we will be able to provide an artistically enriched educational environment in which all KCSD students will explore, discover, express, create and succeed.”

Developed by a district steering committee of the arts, KCSD’s strategic plan includes four major goals of providing a sequential and comprehensive arts education for students using the SC Academic Standards for Visual and Performing Arts; offering training on the use of the arts to all staff; developing school, government, business, and community partnerships for arts participation; and establishing adequate arts facilities and resources.

Goodman said that the district has already benefited from these funds by repairing and replacing damaged band instruments, installing new school sound systems, purchasing equipment for high school choral programs, buying visual art materials for high schools and Orff instruments at elementary schools.

The SC Arts Commission is the state agency charged with creating a thriving arts environment which benefits all South Carolinians.  For more information, visit www.SouthCarolinaArts.com.
