Ready For Prison:

A former South Carolina Treasurer says he's ready to do his time in prison, and get on with his life. Thomas Ravenel's attorney says he'll have to report to prison in Jesup, Georgia by May 29th. He'll serve a ten month sentence for a cocaine related conviction.

Bar Off Probation:

Starting Monday, May 5th, 11-0-2 will be open for customers again. This comes after a jury ruled that one of the bar's owners, Mike Guthrie, was not guilty of aggravated battery. Allegations came after a fight on New Year's Eve badly injured another man.

Condition Of Military Barracks:

Fort Gordon's barracks will soon receive a facelift. The Garrison Command gave tours yesterday to show recent projects. The Army ordered inspections of all barracks after pictures of horrible living conditions at Fort Bragg showed up on the internet. It'll cost about 10-million-dollar per building, bringing the total project to around $230 million.

Water Warning:

A heads up for people in the Langley area of Aiken County. You will not have water service from ten o'clock tonight until six o'clock tomorrow morning. That's because crews are replacing some main water valves. They're also asking you to boil your water before cooking, drinking, or making ice, from ten tonight until further notice.
