The Greenwood County Address Management Depart- ment has been taking assess- ments of address displays throughout the county. Each 911 (physical) address in the Greenwood City or Gre enwo o d C ount y ge o - graphic information system (GIS) will be visited and assessed for proper display. In March 1991, the county passed an ordinance requiring all addresses assigned in the unincorporated areas of the county, city of Greenwood, and the towns of Ninety Six, Ware Shoals and Troy to vis- ibly display address num- bers. The ordinance was overlooked for the past two decades. One month ago, coun- ty address management began its assessment and plans to enforce the ordi- nance once full evalua- tion is made in the area. The department is working with neighbor- hood associations and looking to advertise the ordinance to help make residents aware of the importance in proper display. The creation of an instructional video also is a possibility. The ordinance states, "When each dwelling or building has been assigned its respective number, the owner, occupant or agent shall be required to display the assigned number in accordance with the By COLIN RIDDLE County revisits address ordinance VOL. 96, NO. 60 2 SECTIONS, 20 PAGES FRIDAY, JULY 25, 2014 DAILY 75ยข, SUNDAY $1.50 TODAY: A storm possible in the p.m. High in the 80s.

ROBERT JOHNSTON TAMMIE HARVLEY MATTHEW HARVLEY DEU busts fifth meth lab in a month Three Ninety Six residents were arrest- ed Wednesday night after area drug agents found yet another meth lab in Greenwood County. Matthew Harvley, 24, of 708 McKenzie Road, was charged with conspiracy. Tam- mie Harvley, 46, and Robert Johnston Jr., 34, both of 4712 S.C. Highway 178 South, were charged with separate counts of manufactur- ing methamphetamine in connection with the incident. The discovery marked the fifth lab officers from the multi-jurisdictional Drug Enforce- ment Unit tracked so far this month. The latest finding came at the female suspect's residence along Highway 178 South. According to a Greenwood County inci- dent report, officers responded there about 9:30 p.m. Wednesday to serve warrants on one of the suspects. When they arrived, the homeowner gave them consent to search the premises. Agents found six plastic soda bottles with meth residue on the property as well as three coffee filters that contained a total of 112 grams of meth, the report stated.
