A few figures that stood out to us this week:
The number of pennies that Carolina Forest High School drama students are hoping to collect to raise Holocaust awareness, one for each Jewish victim of that atrocity. Learn how to donate at www.horrycountyschools.net or call the school at 843-236-7997 and ask for Tracy McLellan.
The number of feel-good but substanceless resolutions congratulating high school teams, businesses and residents filed by S.C. lawmakers on the very first day of the legislative session.
The now-possible and long overdue fine for businesses in Horry County that sell lasers to minors
Days left until filing opens for special election to fill the Horry County Council chairman’s seat left open by the departure of Tom Rice. Three candidates have raised their hand so far. Filing closes Jan. 28.
