Recovery continues to build in Upstate - Greenville News

Sun, Apr 22, 2012
Anderson County and expand one in Lexington County. Each of the eight counties that The Market Edge defines as Upstate — Greenville, Anderson, Abbeville, Greenwood, Pickens, Laurens, Spartanburg and Oconee counties — experienced an increase in new home construction in the first quarter. With 447, Greenville County had the regions highest total of first quarter permits, followed by Spartanburg with 137, the report said. John Owings, the county’s manager of current planning, said the county has not had a new preliminary plat for a new subdivision in over the last 18 months, but some of the developers he has talked with said subdivision lots are being purchased and built on, while others said to meet the demand, someone is going to have to come in with a new subdivision or two. (Page 2 of 3) “We’d love to see that happen,” Owings said. What is happening, though, is a migration of a number of national and regional home builders into the Upstate market such as Legendary Homes, Crown, Ryan, Eastwood, Ryan and Mungo, and “from the indications we’ve got, there are a lot of lots being bought and houses built on,” Owings said. Tom Dillard, owner of Dillard-Jones Custom Homes, is among the local home builders benefiting from the increasing Greenville County permit totals. His Greer-based company has about 10 new homes in various phases of construction. “We have, in the last three to four weeks, seen probably more interest in building homes than we have in the past three or four years. There is a remarkable difference in the amount of interest and activity,” Dillard...

Gary and Betty Jo Glenn are dedicated supporters of the Boys Home of the South ... - Greenville News

Sun, Apr 1, 2012
U.S. 25 South. Each time, he was reminded of the day more than 50 years ago when it appeared that he would be living at the Connie Maxwell Children’s Home in Greenwood. His parents had divorced when he was 3 years old. When he was 10 and living with his father, his father’s job required extensive travel, so the Children’s Home seemed like the best option. Glenn vividly recalls that drive to the Children’s Home. “We drove there with my suitcase packed. I thought I’d be living there, and it was frightening to a child,” he recalls. As it turned out, Glenn bounced among several relatives during his teen years but never lived in an orphanage. But life experience has given Glenn and his wife insights into the problems of young men who live in children’s homes and foster homes around the Upstate. “The staff is so caring and dedicated,” Betty Jo says. “Everyone from the house parents to the kitchen staff does what they can to help those boys learn life skills, and they don’t make big money doing it. “The boys who go there learn independent living. They learn cooking and laundry. It’s remarkable, the skills they learn in a short time there,” she says. “Children can’t help themselves. I was fortunate to have a great home life; Gary was not. The average person might not be aware that plenty of children are removed from homes every week, and it happens to families in all walks of life,” Betty Jo adds. Glenn often combines his love for the youngsters at the Boys Home with his love for stock car racing, his primarily hobby. Each summer, he’s made it possible for Boy’s Home residents to attend races at Greenville-Pickens Speedway. “It’s just a little thing. But you’d be surprised how many of these kids have never seen a race. They just don’t get to do the little things that children in traditional family units experience on a regular basis. I guess that’s why we like to help a little bit.” The Boys Home, which provides a homelike setting for 60 to 65 young men year-round, gets its biggest help of the year from its Spring Soiree. The 12th annual event is scheduled for 6 p.m. May 3 at Embassy Suites. “You’ll see a lot of people there you know but didn’t know that they help the Boys Home,” says Glenn. “It’s a fun evening, one of my favorite nights of the year.” The event will include a dinner, program, silent auction and live auction. The event often features a Boys Home alumnus as the speaker, and all sponsorship dollars go to the care of the residents. For more information, contact Susan Spitzer at ...

Burton says he'll leave Capitol Hill, not seek 16th term - Fort Wayne Journal Gazette

Sun, Feb 5, 2012
Congress again this year,” Burton said. “I wanted to end my career where it started because I love this place,” he told legislators who include his brother, Rep. Woody Burton, R-Greenwood. He later told reporters he was leaving Congress because of family health problems. In a statement, Indiana Republican Party Chairman Eric Holcomb thanked Burton for “his tenacious and unrelenting pursuit of smaller, more effective government. He has never shied away from carrying the torch on issues he passionately believes in.” Rep. Mike Pence, R-6th, who seeks the GOP nomination for governor, said in a statement that Burton “never wavered in his commitment to a strong national defense, fiscal responsibility and traditional values.” Sylvia Smith, former Washington editor and columnist for The Journal Gazette, said in an email that Burton “provided a rich – often wacky – source of material for political commentary.” An insurance agent and real estate broker from Indianapolis, the conservative Burton was first elected to the U.S. House in 1982 in a central-Indiana region that has been among the most Republican congressional districts in the nation. He always won easily in general elections but in recent years faced stiff challenges in Republican primaries. Candidates who have announced or filed to run in the 5th District in the May 8 GOP primary include Susan Brooks, a former U.S. district attorney and Fort Wayne native; John McGoff, a former Marion County coroner; David McIntosh, a former congressman who grew up in Kendallville; and attorney Jack Lugar. “It’s a pretty tough slate” of candidates, IPFW political scientist Michael Wolf said.

Mount Pleasant says farewell to Casey Buechel - Mount Pleasant Daily Tribune

Thu, Jan 26, 2012
Casey will be missed,” he added. Ingram, who was also one of the pallbearers for Buechel’s interment Monday at the Greenwood Memorial Park in Fort Worth, said after he returned to Titus County Monday he still couldn’t believe she was gone.“When I heard she had died, I cried like a baby,” said Ingram.He first met Buechel in 2001, when she arrived to a vehicle search he was conducting while a patrol officer for the Mount Pleasant Police Department.“I had a car pulled over, and this woman who I had never met before came up and said, “I want to take your picture and show everyone in the paper that you’re doing your job.’ The next day my picture was on the front page of the paper.” He said years later, after he was elected Titus County Sheriff in 2008, Casey told him that happened to be the first call she responded to as the police beat reporter.Ingram praised Buechel’s professionalism and discretion. “She was very considerate of our needs, she would never do anything to harm an investigation,” said Ingram. “But if she didn’t like something, she’d let you know. She was very dedicated to her job.”After so many years, Ingram said “she felt like family. It was a blessing to know her.”Capt. Vine recalled the first time he met Casey on the job, again in 2001, when he was working the crime scene at a murder in an apartment and he realized someone was taking flash photos.He said he looked up to see Casey was taking photos – inside the police tape. “I told her she was not supposed to be inside here, and I told her I was going to take her camera away. And she said, ‘no, you’re not!’ And I said, ‘I will when I put you in jail!’”The result of the encounter was that Casey kept her camera – and her freedom – but was better about asking first to cross the police tape, and afterwards Vine said they became firm friends.“We had a very good working relationship, she was very professional, she really had a passion for her job.”Jay Burch – currently the Chief of Police in Denison – said in the time he served as Chief of Police in Mount Pleasant, from 2005 to 2011, he was always impressed by her fairness and professionalism.“I always enjoyed working with her,” he said, adding she took a few minutes to visit with him last October at his office before he left for the Denison post. He said he was saddened to hear that she died, but not completely shocked. He remembered weak she ...

Mack, Willoughby, Faro - La Grande Observer

Thu, Jan 5, 2012
Head Start Program; librarian at the La Grande Middle School; secretary for the special programs office at ESD; secretary for the La Grande School District business office; and secretary and aide at Greenwood school. She retired from the La Grande School District after 25 years of service. Margaret enjoyed sewing, quilting and cooking, and she participated in swimming, tennis and bicycling. She was a member of several organizations, including Chi Omega Sorority, Quilt Questers and AARP. She was a board member for Seniors Inc., and treasurer for Wes Lynn Women’s Circle. Margaret served as a leader for the Girl Scouts and Brownies for many years. Margaret enjoyed a close relationship with her father, her family said. He was the only one that could soothe her as a young child by taking her for long drives in the car. He was killed by friendly fire in World War II while attempting to land his airplane on an aircraft carrier. Shortly after his death, Margaret was told by an old American Indian woman that a man in a light colored suit would be looking over her all of her life. The family lived across the street from Albert Einstein during their time at Princeton University. Margaret always remembered the day Einstein gave her a lollipop. At the end of Margaret’s career at the school district, she said she chose to retire early in order to save three other job positions. Margaret is survived by her husband, Pat; three children and their spouses, Jeffery Geist of Rainier, Donna and Charles Thomas of Gresham and Jonathan and Deanna Geist of Victor, N.Y.; her sister, Joey Hastings and spouse, Ron Lute, of Redding, Calif.; her uncles, Bob Luke and Tommy, Billy, Dale and Donny Luke; 13 grandchildren; 17 great-grandchildren; and 35 nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her father, Robert Gowdy; her mother and step-father, Grace and Oscar Wieszorek; a second step-father, Rudy Mosqueda; and Ruby Wieszorek, the second wife of Oscar Wieszorek, who cared for Margaret like a step-mother.
