SC Congressional Districts

South Carolina Congressional Districts - 2000 Revision

This is the second hearing in Greenville, the first by the House. Here’s the information from the Greenville County GOP.

EVENT ALERT – Redistricting Public Hearing for Congressional and State House Districts

WEDNESDAY April 13th 2011 @ 5:30pm

The SC State House Judiciary Redistricting Subcommittee is holding a series of public hearings around the state to receive public comment and answer questions regarding the re-drawing of SC’s Congressional Districts and State House Districts.  The one public hearing scheduled for the Upstate will be held Wednesday April 13th @ 5:30pm at Greenville County Square in the Council Chambers located at 301 University Ridge, Greenville, SC.

This meeting is of great importance because there are several scenarios being considered.  One scenario could result in Greenville & Spartanburg counties being split into different Congressional Districts.  Another scenario would result in dividing Greenville County in half putting each half of the county into different Congressional Districts! Your State House representation could possibly change as well.

Apple is Coming to Haywood Mall

Apple Is Posed to Open Store in Greenville, SC

I was doing my nightly wrap up of programming and reading the latest reviews on Apple’s newest product, the iPad, I decided to see if the rumors we had heard two years ago were finally coming true.

What rumors, Apple opening a retail store in Greenville, SC. I had heard that a store would be coming to the new Magnolia Park Town Center in Greenville or the Pointe development across from the Shoppe’s at Greenridge on Woodruff Rd.  Both of those projects, I believe, have been put on hold.  So the only other logical place to put one is in Haywood Mall or downtown Greenville.

For those of you who don’t know me, I am a web developer by trade and unfortunately for my wife, a Mac geek.

So while taking a look, we found on Mac Rumors updates that started talking about a Greenville Apple Store again.  So I decided to take a look and found job listings on Apple’s website for a Greenville retail store!

Apple Greenville Job Listing

I for one can’t wait to have a Apple store 30 minutes from home.  It beats driving to Charlotte or waiting a few days for my new items to come in the mail.  My wife on the other hand is all but pleased.  She immediately envisions hours of trolling around the new store playing with gadgets which inevitably leads to a new purchase.  My best bet may be trying to get a part time job, I could use the discount!

So we want to know what you think about the possibility of an Apple Store in Greenville.  Leave a comment below.

Table 301 Offers Stimulus Package for a Limited Time

Earlier this year, we had the opportunity to share this promotion with our readers and received many emails wishing we had told them earlier.  My apologies.

But there is good news for those of you who missed out in January or didn’t make it back one month and dropped out of the program.  Table 301 has provided a “small window of opportunity” for those of you who missed out on the Table 301 Stimulus Package in January,

If you have never heard of Table 301, the organization is run by Carl Sobocinski. His restaurants include the fabulous Soby’s (new southern cuisine), Soby’s on the Side, The Loft at Soby’s, Devereaux’s (new age and southern cuisine), The Lazy Goat (Mediterannean, International), Table 301 Catering and opening later this summer, a new restaurant in the former Restaurant O.  The coupon is only valid at Soby’s, Devereaux’s, and The Lazy Goat.

Here’s the catch, if you go by June 30th, 2009 and use the coupon, you will receive another coupon to use the next month for $25 off your meal at another participating Table 301 restaurant.  And it continues through the end of the year.

Enjoy the meal and tell Carl, Gary sent you.

SC State House Passes 10th Amendment Resolution

On February 26th, The SC State House passed H3509 which is a resolution to affirm the states rights guaranteed by the 9th and 10th amendments of the US Constitution.

Unfortunately, it appears the transparency bill doesn’t cover such resolutions.  We spoke with Dan Hamilton (House District 20) of Greenville, SC who shared with us that the vote was unanimous in favor of the bill.

Some of the Spartanburg County legislatures signed on to the bill.  They are as follows:

  • Allison
  • Parker
  • Millwood
  • Littlejohn

Be sure you call and thank them for signing on to this bill.  Those who failed to sign on as sponsors are below:

  • Mitchell
  • Cole
  • Forrester
  • Kelly

The bill has been referred to the Senate.  A similar version already exists, S424 in the State Senate, which the Spartanburg County Senators have already signed on as sponsors.
