On Tuesday, Lexington County Council decided to include several municipalities in a countywide referendum to allow the purchase of packaged beer and wine on Sundays.
Council had originally proposed allowing the sales in all unincorporated areas of the county — an issue that will go before voters in a November referendum — but this week decided to add municipalities that do not currently allow the sales to make the laws uniform throughout the county. The towns that currently do not allow the sales are Pine Ridge, Summit, Swansea, Batesburg-Leesville, Cayce, West Columbia, Gilbert, Pelion and Springdale. The City of Cayce has already made its own proposal to allow the sales.
Restaurants and bars in Lexington County are already allowed to sell alcoholic beverages on Sundays.
Lexington 2 Names New Superintendent
The Lexington School District Two Board of Trustees on Wednesday announced that Tom Siler has been named the school district's next superintendent.
Siler was unanimously approved by the board as the superintendent-elect and will officially assume the duties of superintendent when current Superintendent Venus Holland retires in June 2015. He is expected to start work with Lexington 2 on Sept. 15 and work in transition until he officially assumes his duties next year.
“There were three excellent finalists and the board had a tough decision to make.” said Bill Bingham, Chairman of the Lexington District Two Board of Trustees. “We are very excited to have Dr. Siler join the district in this leadership position. His deep background in education and positive energy will be a tremendous asset to the community and keep us moving forward in an educational environment that is constantly evolving. The board asks our staff and community to welcome Dr. Siler and support him as he prepares to be Lexington Two’s newest “Champion for Children.”
Siler has been the Superintendent of Williston School District 29 in Barnwell County since 2012.
