BeltKaye Adams line Anderson, four counts of Hugh Ronald Tucker and Pamela fraudulent checks Charleston school loses its charter The Associated Press CHARLESTON The director of the state's first charter school says his charter is being revoked in retaliation for a complaint of racism he filed with the U.S. Education Department's Office of Civil Rights. "My theory is, this is 100 percent retribution for my having filed a complaint," Jim Ring, director of Education Redirection, said Thursday. Last month, Mr. Ring sued the school district, saying it tried to put him out of business by withholding money that was supposed to go to Education Redirection.

The Charleston County School Board announced on Oct. 11 that it would revoke Education Redirection's charter, citing the school's financial problems and saying the school failed to comply with the Charter School Act. Mr. Ring and his wife. Frankie, were traveling 1 in Israel at the time.

Now that they are back, Mr. Ring said Education Redirection would appeal. County School Superintendent Ron McWhirt would not discuss specifics because of the possible appeal, but said the board's decision had nothing to do with the civil rights complaint. "But my primary concern was with the financial side of it and where that leaves us with Mr. McWhirt said.

School employees first told him of the problems, the superintendent said. Mr. McWhirt said the civil rights office had not contacted the district regarding its investigation of Mr. Ring's complaint.

Pelzer, West Pelzer apply to renovate mill houses By Nicholas Charalambous Independent-Mail PELZER Pelzer and West Pelzer are in the running for $338,000 each in federal grants to renovate old mill houses that have fallen into disrepair. The A Appalachian Council of Governments' Board of Directors voted Friday to support the applications. They will vie with 35 other projects from across the state for a share of the Commerce Department's $8 million in Community Development Block Grants. "It's still not a shoo-in that we get money, but as far as morale and enthusiasm, that sure makes us feel good," Pelzer Town Clerk Skip Watkins said. Pelzer and West Pelzer each applied to renovate 14 substandard homes owned by lowincome residents.

The money would be used for fixing roofs, wiring, plumbing and heating on the homes, some of which were built by Pelzer Mills more than 70 years ago. Both towns have applied successfully for similar grants in the past. The council has ranked first the application for $315,000 from Chesnee to renovate a dilapidated downtown building into a community center, which would benefit 1,199 residents. Pelzer and West Pelzer's applications were ranked second and third respectively. The council's executive director, Bob Strother, said all three applications were strong enough to win.

"We hope all three get funded," he said. The Commerce Department awards the grant based on criteria including the type of need, the number of people who benefit, the impact on an area and community support, Grants Manager Dale McCollough said. The results of the grant competition likely will be announced by the end of the year, she said.
