The Army Corps Engineers has said it needs $4.5 million a year to keep the South Carolina section of the waterway at its traditional 12-foot depth, said Rosemary Lynch, executive director of the association. But federal funding for dredging and other maintenance on the waterway is shrinking as commercial traffic dwindles. South Carolina will likely get about $269,000 in this year's federal budget, barely enough to keep the most trouble-prone sections of the route open, Lynch In Loving Memory Of Mrs. Chancy Austin Zqgler Simriu: 551902 Smart: 71619X9 y.t Mother Grandmother It's been 14 yean since you've gone to heaven.

"If Congress doesn't hear anything from us, we won't have a waterway."

A federal judge in Washington state ruled earlier this month that the department violated the law when it granted itself the authority to reclassify some of the millions of gallons of hazardous, highly radioactive wastes stored in tanks in South Carolina, Washington and Idaho. The judge overturned a regulation the Energy Department claimed allowed it to reclassify highly radioactive waste so it would not have to be permanently removed. "We're still trying to figure out everything that the ruling impacts," Department of Energy spokesman Jim Giusti, who works out of the SRS office near Aiken, said Thursday. At SRS there are 37 million gallons of high-level waste in 49 tanks. The site has already closed two tanks with some waste left in the tanks, but halted work on two tanks they were planning to close, Giusti said. SRS had developed an aggressive accelerated plan to reduce the cost of cleanup by $12 billion and shorten the schedule by 20 years. "The ruling has really thrown the accelerated plans at SRS in disarray," Giusti said. Man enters home, robs owner at knifepoint T&D Staff Report A Campus Drive man called the Orangeburg County Sheriff's Office after a man armed with a knife entered his residence and robbed him of a wallet Wednesday afternoon.

The victim could give no additional description of the suspect. The suspect displayed a knife and demanded the victim's wallet. The victim said he gave the robber the wallet without hesitation and the suspect fled the residence. Reports indicated the victim's wallet contained $20.

Man trades possible death sentence for life, no parole CONWAY (AP) - A man accused of beating and strangling a Myrtle Beach woman more than a decade ago has agreed to a sentence of life without parole so he could avoid a possible return to death row. A jury in 1991 sentenced James Bernard Whipple to death for the killing of Heather Stigliano, but a judge overturned the sentence seven years later, ruling Whipple didn't rape his victim. Prosecutors could have gone after the death penalty again with a different aggravating circumstance, but agreed to the plea because if a jury has sentenced Whipple to life in prison, he could have In Loving Memory Of Charlotte A.
