  • Simpsonville City Commission OKs 10-year deal for garbage service

    Simpsonville has a new garbage contract with its old vendor.

    City commissioners authorized at their meeting Tuesday night to allow Mayor Steve Eden to sign a 10-year agreement with Republic Services LLC, which is a subsidiary of M & M Sanitation of Lexington, the same company that has served the city for years.

    Commissioners last month had authorized a longer-term agreement so that the city could get better overall rates, and that was important.

  • Post 37's Woolums is quick to catch on with the bat

    Tyler Woolums is used to the question now.
    Are you the catcher?
    “I do get that a lot. People tell me I have a baseball build, but they say I look like a second baseman or an outfielder,” said Woolums, 19, who stands 5 feet 11 and weighs 170 pounds. “I’m trying to change that. I’d like to grow a couple inches and put on a little mass.”
    But in the meantime Woolums will continue to mash the ball for the Shelbyville Post 37 American Legion baseball team.
