The City of Greer allocated $40,000 in Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funds to local organizations last week, making a few changes before the final reading.

A single-engine plane had to make an emergency landing on Highway 29 in Wellford last Thursday night. Pilot Hollis Collins called the landing a ‘miracle.’


A lot could have gone wrong when a single-engine plane lost power last Thursday night in Wellford.

Instead, pilots Hollis Collins and Paul Peckham completed a successful emergency landing on Highway 29 near Wild Oaks Drive just before 9 p.m., allowing five people to walk away uninjured.

Dogs for a cause

The group, which operates through the Greater Greer Chamber of Commerce, decided to reach out to servicemen and women as part of its project, “Healing Heroes.”
