News Notes

Posted: February 5, 2013 - 12:28pm
American Legion Auxiliary Unit 71 members donated money to the 67th Signal Corps Battalion FRG at Fort Gordon to help with the expense of shipping more than 200 camo quilts from Plymouth, Wis., to Fort Gordon. The quilts are small, fold into thirds, and roll up like a sleeping bag. The quilts are made by volunteers and given to troops free of charge. The FRG invited Unit 71 to help embroider messages from family members onto the quilts. The quilts will be sent to Afghanistan in time for Valentine's Day with a card bearing the name of the soldier. Pictured are members of Unit 71 with members of the FRG group working on quilts.   SPECIAL

Municipal election

The Republican Party will hold its primary for the North Augusta municipal election on Tuesday from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. at the Riverview Park Activities Center.

Mayor Lark Jones is running unopposed. There are four candidates for three city council seats – Pat Carpenter, Arthur Shealy, Fletcher Dickert and David McGhee. There are no Democrats running, so Tuesday’s winners will begin their terms in May.

New requirements that took effect Jan. 1. mean voters have to present a South Carolina driver’s license, an ID card issued by the South Carolina DMV, a South Carolina voter registration card with photo, a federal military ID or U.S. passport, according to the State Election Commission.
