  • Georgetown's Front Street still empty after fire

    The 700 block of Georgetown’s Front Street is still empty three years after the fire. Many of the businesses have relocated two blocks up the street to the 900 block as declarations were made to rebuild shortly after the 2013 fire. The debris was cleared, a mural was painted on a nearby wall, fund raisers were held and a black fence has been erected since. Eight historic buildings were destroyed in the fire. Some of the upstairs were used as apartments. No people were seriously injured.

  • Rally to free convicted robber connected to Drexel case

    John C. Barnett, a civil rights activist, took up the defense of Timothy Da'Shaun Taylor, holding a press conference in McClellanville on Wednesday. Taylor pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit a Hobbs Act robbery in 2011. The case was resurrected by federal investigators when an informant implicated him in the case of Brittanee Drexel's 2009 disappearance from a Myrtle Beach motel. Taylor faces at least a decade in prison on the conspiracy charge.
