since state government granted workers a raise of as much as five per cent. but that is what a bipartisan group of senators thinks is possible this year because the state has a large surplus. their proposal would provide raises at state agencies and colleges---and cost about $75 million dollars. richland republican john courson is one of the measure's leading sponsors. i do think there's some sentiment that state employees have not been rewarded but have not whined about it, have not complained about it because of the great recession of 2008. we have the revenue stream now to do it. we can do it without any tax increase, so let's reward them and thank them for their service. the state employee's association says about three quarters of state workers are making less than $40 thousand dollars a year. members say many employees are on public assistance or forced to work second jobs to make ends meet. senator courson says getting the pay raise through the general assembly will meet its toughest challenge in the house. if it is approved, the raises would become effective july 1st.

street as well as lake drive. town officials say the new signals don't change based on a timer but rather how many cars are building up at the light. if the number of cars is over the average for a given time, the light will change automatically to reduce the congestion. lexington is aiming to have 35 intersections equipped with these lights by the end of next year.

you really should have it checked, but you put it off? a woman in conway did and she lost part of her face because of it. her desire to tan in the sun and tanning beds lead to a powerful lesson she wants to share with you and some pics are tough to see. :06 - :15 :16 - :26 2:25 - 2:39 pictures from yesteryear show jenny faulk as she has spent most every day since she was a little girl. "barefoot, bathing suits, tank tops, shorts. and i never wore sunscreen.
jenny learned a super tough lesson about overexposure to sun ... and the lack of wearing any sun protection. that awareness started in 2014 when a bump developed on her nose. "it would be itchy, dry, and i would scratch and scratch. and i'd put moisturizers on it. and it would just never go away." she thought she was allergic to her moisturizer so she changed to a new product. "and then it got to where it was just getting bigger like wider and i thought well something's not right here. it's just not going away." jenny finally went to a dermatologist. "the minute she saw me she said, 'how long has that been on your nose?' and i said a year, maybe a little more. and i knew by the look on her face that it was more than dry skin." jenny had basal cell carcinoma. these pictures are difficult to see, but they're the reality jenny faced. her delay in getting treatment allowed the skin cancer to spread so viciously, doctors had to
chunk of her cheek. dr. todd lefkowitz with lexington plastic surgery at lexington medical center then redesigned and repaired her face in a three-stage reconstruction. "we actually took her forehead here, raised it up and then turned it down to make her nose. at the same time, because a large part of her cheek was missing, we had to take cheek skin and cheek tissue that was beside it, raise it up and move it over to try and create a more junction." lefkowitz then took cartilage from jenny's ear and put it in her
nose to give it more support. "we took a little bit of skin and we put it as a skin graft on the undersurface to line the internal part of the nose so when she breathes some of that air can flow easier and be humidified as it goes through." after the extra flap of skin on the nose from the
supply, dr. lefkowitz was able to detach it from the forehead giving it a smoother
appearance. "the hope is that no one gets into her position. obviously, the earlier you catch skin cancer, whether it's melanoma or non-melanoma, basal cell or squamous cell, it's very treatable and often times, it's treatable without surgery." susie has her face back, but only after a very invasive treatment plan - that could have been avoided. "if it's something there that doesn't go away within a couple weeks, get it looked at. get it looked at. don't wait." dr. lefkowitz emphasizes the need to bring up to your doctor anything questionable on your body. "the worst thing you can do is have a concern and wish it away cause often times, it doesn't go away and a lot of times it just gets worse." the risk of basal cell
had - increases 73% if you tan six times per year in high school or college. also worth noting: more people develop skin cancer because of tanning than develop lung cancer because of smoking. coming up on wis, gop presidential candidates are taking the main stage tonight in north charleston. and wis is there. break welcome to the news at five, i'm
