that's why the county held that meeting tonight -- to get feedback. "come on! this way! good boy! / the kids come back here and ride bikes. tammy moshier loves a walk in the woods behind her home off old woodlands road on gills creek. "he says this is a great trail, and we didn't spend one penny." moshier's home flooded in october. "it got really scary, you know, when we had to evacuate. yeah, it was scary." but moshier's rebuilding because she loves this peaceful setting. however, she says richland county is threatening that now. engineers have drawn up plans for a four-mille greenway that runs the length of gills creek from kilbourne road to bluff road. "i'm not sure why we need to spend, you know, all that tax money. trails are already there, and it's beautiful, and the neighbors keep it up, and we all watch out for one another." she's worried about a spike in questionable foot traffic in their quiet neighborhoods and the possibility of crime too. "i kind of don't like to even think about that."
showed up this meeting to let county officials know their feelings. the county told them the $2.2 million project, funded by the penny tax, was approved by voters, so that money can't be spent on anything else. but transportation director rob perry wants to hear feedback -- good or bad. "i don't want to just hear, 'i hate it.' i want to hear, 'i don't like it and here's why,' or 'i do like it here,' or 'i can live with it there.'" of course, not everyone is opposed. "we do see the long-term value of this is worth pursuing anyway, because we may not get another opportunity in the future." when it comes to crime, elliott powell belives a beautiful, well-maintained and monitored trail will actually drive off criminals and undesireables already in the woods along gills creek. moshier disagrees. "i'm in these woods everyday, and i'm not sure the people saying that are in these woods." the project is in councilman greg pearce's district, and he was there tonight. pearce told the crowd to beware
misinformation about the project. he said voters approved the project and it won't be a boondoggle. but, he did say engineers will likely go back to the drawing board to come up with a trail plan that's more desirable, possibly moving it to the other side of the creek. he also doesn't believe there's enough money to build all of it. turning now to your overnight forecast--and another cold night tonight. ben tanner is in the weather center... temperatures will not be quite as cold friday morning with lows in the upper 20s and lower 30s. friday turns mostly cloudy as low pressure develops

afghanistan. i know what's going on in the world. i have no problems speaking with fluency about foreign-policy. bush will have some high powered help in the campaign next week. his brother, former president george w. bush will campaign for him in south carolina. the former president is scheduled to appear in charleston on monday evening. for the democrats tonight--it was a detour from their upcoming primarys. tonight in wisconsin, hillary clinton and bernie sanders were at it again in the latest debate. wendy woolfolk has more. --reporter pkg-as follows-- hillary clinton takes a page out of bernie sanders' playbook. presidential candidate : "we both agree that we have to get unaccountable money out of our political system and that we have to do much more to ensure that wall street never wrecks main street again." but she tried to dent sanders by portraying his plans on health care as unrealistic. presidential candidate : "that's a promise that can not be kept." sanders made sure to check his
presidential candidate : "well, secretary clinton, you are not in the white house yet." and called clinton out on out on her stump speeches. presidential candidate : "secretary clinton has been going around the country saying bernie sanders wants to dismantle the affordable care act." presidential candidate : "i have fought my entire life to make sure that health care is a right for all people. we're not going to dismantle anything." clinton turned to discrimination -- making a pitch to some key constituencies -- latino -- african american -- and women voters. presidential candidate : "i am running for president to take down all the barriers that are holding americans back." as both candidates look toward the nevada primary -- sanders attempted to keep his young base with his debate performance while also courting the elderly vote.
