Police chief says national rankings disregard progress made from years past

Police Chief Jon Zumalt thinks the latest crime rankings do not reflect the efforts made in North Charleston.


COLUMBIA — State Rep. Tim Scott wants South Carolina to do more to protect what he sees as the state's biggest job recruitment tool, its right-to-work laws, from any possible federal encroachment.

Scott, a North Charleston Republican who wants to be lieutenant governor, plans to introduce a resolution as early as this week

intended to encourage local and state government to emphasize the state's low union presence as a selling point in economic development efforts.
