Over the weekend of October 3–4, Hurricane Joaquin brought record-setting rainfall and catastrophic flooding to the Southeast, leaving South Carolina in a state of disaster. In the central and eastern part of the state, rivers overran their banks, washing out roads and bridges, breaching dams, and destroying property. To the south, high tides pushed water inland over sea walls. President Barack Obama declared the state a disaster zone, and ordered federal aid to supplement state, tribal, and local efforts.

Hearing odd howls in the night?  Are large carnivores darting across your lawn?  Is something strange lurking outside?  Laurens County has certainly changed over the years, and one of those changes is the increase in our coyote population.  The Laurens County Library has invited DNR Wildlife Biologist Jay Butfiloski to visit the library at 6:30 p.m. on October 1 to explain the facts about this interesting and somewhat controversial species that seems to be showing up everywhere.
