BullChicks closes

A North Augusta restaurant has closed.

BullChicks, 615 E. Martintown Road, has a chalkboard in a window stating “Store is closed.”

The franchise restaurant opened in August 2012 and served a variety of burgers, wraps, sandwiches, salads and wings.

Efforts to reach the ownership have been unsuccessful.

The Texas-based chain also had a restaurant at 503 Highland Ave. in Augusta, which closed last year.

Historic marker

The Heritage Council of North Augusta has been approved to place a marker in a historical area of North Augusta.

According to a news release, the marker will honor the Carrsville community and be placed at Barton Road and Boylan Street.

Carrsville was a black community that was established in 1930 following two floods that destroyed the town of Hamburg.

Those interested in making donations for the marker can make checks payable to “The Heritage Council of North Augusta” and send it to HCNA, P.O. Box 7511, North Augusta, SC 29861. Be sure to write that the check is for “Carrsville”.

Nurse award

A North Augusta resident has been named a 2014 Caregiver of the Year Award regional winner for Maxim Healthcare Services.

Joy Zeaser, a registered nurse, is the winner for the company’s southeast region office in Augusta.

“One of Joy’s most outstanding traits is that she is the consummate advocate for her patients,” said Matt Corbin, Augusta administrative officer in a news release. “She embodies the word ‘caring’ even with the most challenging situations.”

Zeaser and other regional winners will attend a special award ceremony on Thursday. The National Caregiver of the Year honor will be announced that afternoon.
