Jerry E. Halmon, Staff Reporter

With the Monday, December 13, 2010 deadline to file the proper papers to run in the Tuesday, February 8, 2011 City Council Election for the City of Denmark having passed and the 14-day period for write-in candidates to file (December 27, 2010) also having passed, two incumbent members of council have filed the necessary papers to run, while one seat remains uncontested.

Incumbent Denmark City Council members Bervay Carter and Hope Long-Weldon have filed the necessary papers to run for another four year term on Denmark City Council while the third open seat on Council that of former Council member Evert Comer Jr., who ran successfully for County Council in November representing District Six, remains uncontested.

According to Bamberg County Voter Registration Director Patti Jeffcoat, potential challengers the Reverend Rufus Jamison and Charles Bailey did not complete the required certification process. Jeffcoat noted however that space would be on the ballot on February 8, for write-in candidates.

The polls shall be open from 7:00 am until 7:00 pm on February 8, 2011 in the following precincts: East Denmark, The Brooker Center and West Denmark The Old Train Depot. On Thursday, February 10, 2011, at 10:00 am the County Board of Canvassers will hold a hearing to determine the validity of all provisional ballots cast in this election. This hearing will be held at the J. Carl Kearse Agricultural Building, 847 Calhoun Street, Bamberg SC.

The Denmark Fire Department and Ladies Auxiliary along with the Shephard Blood Bank of Augusta, Georgia sponsored a blood drive in memory of assistant fire chief Wayne Gibson.

“The blood drive was a huge success,” said Patsy Breland. “Enough blood was donated to save at least 60 lives. We would like to thank Shephard Blood Bank and all those who came and donated blood,” Breland said.

DTC Faith Based

Usually it’s pastors inviting people into their churches for food and fellowship.

This time, it was Denmark Technical College inviting church people into their house for food, fellowship – but also discussions on how to help the community.

“I’m glad DTC is making a concerted effort to interact with our faith-based communities. Churches are a big component of any community and they have the mission – similar to a school or college – to improve the lives of its community members. Really it makes a lot of sense to collaborate with our area churches. They know quite well the needs and conditions of their parishioners. Now DTC’s perspective and challenge is to see how we can help them,” said Dr. Michael M. Townsend Sr., the DTC president.
