North Augusta City Council plans sales tax projects wish list, future

Voters in Aiken County will be choosing whether to approve a fourth Capital Projects Sales Tax (CPST) in November, and on Thursday, Feb. 8, North Augusta City Council discussed a list with over $60 million worth of projects to consider.

During a two-day planning session called EnVision, North Augusta City Council talked about CPST projects, as well as other projects on the minds of City department heads.

City Administrator Todd Glover said the city has estimated it will receive around $25 million in funds over seven years of CPST IV. He said the county has estimated a total for the entirety of Aiken County to be around $163 million, but calculations the city has done estimate it will actually be around $104 million.

The funding given to each of the entities receiving it is calculated by two metrics. The county-wide total is split in half, and the two halves are doled out to

Widow of former Albany detective plans to file lawsuit

After losing her husband in the line of duty, the widow of a former Albany detective is speaking out. Linda Mayville claims the city isn’t providing her with the benefits she’s entitled to following her husband’s death nearly four years ago.

Mayville is seeking legal counsel and plans to file a lawsuit against the city of Albany if Mayor Kathy Sheehan doesn’t respond by Friday.

In 2008, Linda’s husband, Douglas Mayville, was diagnosed with Wegener’s granulomatosis, and what followed was a lengthy and gruesome medical battle, which has turned into a legal dispute. Mayville served the city as a police officer and later as a crime scene investigator from 1982 to 1997. During those 16 years, the nature of his work led to an exposure of toxic chemicals which would ultimately lead to a painful autoimmune disease known as Wegener’s disease.

According to the State of New York Workers’ Compensation Board, Mayville died

SWARTHMORE When the 63rd annual Hero Thrill Show kicks off at noon on Saturday, Sept. 23 outside of the Wells Fargo Center, 3601 S. Broad St., in South Philadelphia, a special little 3-year-old honorary Philadelphia police officer will be a part of the action. Ryder Simms of the Swarthmorewood section of Ridley Township was sworn in as an honorary Philadelphia police officer by Philadelphia Police Commissioner Richard Ross in August. The son of Jason and Alana Simms, the tiny tyke in uniform has been garnering lots of attention these last few weeks as word of the “miniature man in blue” has spread.

Mother Alana said her son’s fascination with all-things police related began about the age of 1 when he began taking an unexpected interest in toy police vehicles.

“None of us pushed him to like police-themed toys,” Alana explained. “He just seemed to skip over the baby toys and gravitate
