On a recent gray Saturday morning, 20 volunteers scurried up and down the stairs to a second-floor apartment in South Los Angeles. One carried a painting, another juggled a bag of pillows and two others brought up the rear, balancing a glass-topped coffee table. It would take less than 90 minutes for volunteers from A Sense […]

There appears to be a positive correlation between the amount of travel contracts completed and “stuff” we have. As I mentioned in another post, we began traveling with a mid sized sedan, which was sufficient for our belongings when we moved from Florida to Washington. When we left Washington, we needed to add a cargo […]

The S.C. Department of Transportation plans to make the roads smoother one pothole at a time. The agency plans to repave and fill hundreds of miles of roads across the Palmetto State through the 2020 Pavement Improvement Program. Officials will start in Spartanburg County. Other projects are slated across the state. Road projects are expected to start near the end of this year. Repairs are projected for secondary roads like Daniel Morgan Avenue and primary streets like Arlington Road. Darryl Lester grew up in Greer. His business sits at the busy corner of Arlington Road. While Darryl repairs furniture, he’s anxious to see road repairs on street in front of his shop. “Once you fix this road there’s just another one tore up. There’s always another road to be fixed,” he said. DOT crews will repair the road along with almost 580 miles of concrete across the Palmetto State. State Maintenance Program Manager Chris Kelly says the first bids will go out for contract in September. “These projects will be some level of patching but then coming back over with a  resurfacing of the road afterwards,” Kelly said.   Each county ranked roads depending on traffic patterns and maintenance needs. This is part of a 10-year plan to improve roadways in multiple counties, all funded by the gas tax. Roads in Spartanburg, Cherokee and Union counties are first on the list. For drivers like James Schwartz, improvements can’t come fast enough. “I feel like they tried to fix them at one time, you can see the little paving things, but it’s not really, who knows how bad it’s going to be in a couple of years, so we may as well go ahead and fix it,” Schwartz said. The DOT is currently accepting public input for road projects. Officials encourage people to contact their county DOT office with comments and requests. Here’s a list of the actual streets listed on the project so far: Spartanburg County Arlington Road to Highway 357 to Holly Springs Road, Fort Prince Boulevard just south of the intersection with Wellford Road to Falling Creek Road, Fairfield Road from the intersection of Ledford Road to Cooley Springs Road and south Martin Camp Road, Fairfield Road past Garden Hill Road, Double Bridge Road just north of Coal Creek Drive to Old Furnace Road, Compton Bridge Road from the intersection of Highway 11 to Lake Bowen, Rogers Bridge Road near Agnes Drive to E. Main Street, South Daniel Morgan Avenue from John B. White Sr. Boulevard to West Henry Street, North Daniel Morgan Avenue from West St. John Street to East Daniel Morgan Avenue running to North Pine Street. Cherokee County West Cherokee Street from just east of Little Hope Road to Legan Road, North Logan Street from Marion Street to Limestone Street, Highway 11 East from Pickens Street to just west of Dillon Street, Dillon Street from Pickens Street to US-221 Alternate, South Rutherford Street from West Ramseur Street to West Carolina Street, East Church Street from North John Street to North Mountain Street Extension, Colony Road from Quarter Round Road to Pacolet Highway, West Fairview Avenue from South Logan Street to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Street, Mill Street from Oakland Avenue to North Limestone Street, Hampton Avenue from West Smith Street to West Montgomery Street Union County Carlisle Whitmire Highway from just east of Tyger River Bridge to Jeter Chapel Road, Sardis Road from US Highway 176 to Deepwater Road, Gage Avenue from West South Street to West Henrietta Street, Harris Street from Harwood Hts. to Old Buffal Road, S. 6th Street from Lockhart Drive to End State Maintenance, S. 5th Street from Old Union Road to End State Maintenance, Hillcrest Drive Extension from S. 6th Street to Old Union Road, Highland Drive from South Boyce Street to Wilbur Street, Wilbur Street from South Boyce Street to Wilbur Street, Hawkins Road from Beltline Road to just east of SC-215.

Only once Rosa had finally conquered her backlog of manuscripts could she turn her attention to preparation for the BDÜ conference. In the end, what had motivated her to accept the invitation was knowing she would never hear the end of it from her father if she didn’t. Plus, she couldn’t ignore the fact that […]
