latest. there's still a pretty nice dusting of snow throughout the whitmire area. there's some ice too, but so far, things are going pretty smoothly here in newberry county. this was at about 5 o'clock or so, but people here in whitmire tell me the snow started a few hours before that around 1 o'clock and they tell me it came down pretty heavily. roads in and around whitmire are pretty slick. sheriff lee foster tells me his deputies are monitoring some problem bridges near the fairfrfld
so far, the sheriff says there have been a couple ice-related accidents, but they've been minor. s-c-d-o-t workers are hard at work too. they've been treating i-26 with a salt brine most recently. they've also treated some state roads with salt sand, including sc-121, sc-34, and sc-56. they haven't been able to treat secondary roads, because, of course, d-o- t's biggest priority is the interstate and primary roads. people here in whitmire tell me this town seems to always get snow before other areas of the county because of its geography and that's not a bad thing
"actually, no, it doesn't get old. i mean, we don't get it often, but it's like whitmire is a little magic spot in the county. we always get a little different weather than, you know, what newberry forecasts or, you know, mid-carolina. it's just like whitmire's a little magic spot up here." now, as far as trees go, d-o-t had no reports of fallen trees onto roadways. for now, the precipitation has stopped, but more is likely on the way. just standing here over the past few hours, i've seen multiple d-o-t trucks, newberry deputies, and whitmire police too so first responders seem to be on top of things. live in whitmire, chad mills, wis news 10. tonight ... washington, dc, is in the bulls

from him after a traffic stop last spring. a bystander caught that shooting on cell phone video. chapin's police chief says his suspension from his job was over a failure to communicate. today, chief troy crump went back to work after the mayor suspended him for three days without pay. crump now says the trouble came up when he went to a week-long mandatory firearms training course and did not let the mayor know he'd be gone. crump says, "the training caused me to be away from my office for the week of january 11. prior to attending the training course, i inadvertently failed to communicate my absence from the office to mayor skip wilson. in response, mayor wilson suspended me from my duties for three days without pay." crump says he does not believe the suspension was warranted, but he looks forward to getting back to his duties. a prime spot in lexington got the green light from the town's planning commission this week. developers plan to add a development at sunset boulevard and palmetto park boulevard that would include stores like fresh market and hobby lobby.
