Abbeville Co. voters reject bond referendum, citing concerns about cost, crowding at schools

ABBEVILLE COUNTY, S.C. (WSPA) – Abbeville County voters rejected a $55.7 million bond referendum Tuesday night, with nearly 83 percent of voters against the referendum.“The people spoke,” said Abbeville County School District Superintendent Dr. Mason Gary. “The vote didn’t turn out the way I wanted it to, but it’s a new day and we’ve got to move forward.”The 25-year bonds would have paid for upgrades at Abbeville High School and Dixie High School.“People clearly have ...

ABBEVILLE COUNTY, S.C. (WSPA) – Abbeville County voters rejected a $55.7 million bond referendum Tuesday night, with nearly 83 percent of voters against the referendum.

“The people spoke,” said Abbeville County School District Superintendent Dr. Mason Gary. “The vote didn’t turn out the way I wanted it to, but it’s a new day and we’ve got to move forward.”

The 25-year bonds would have paid for upgrades at Abbeville High School and Dixie High School.

“People clearly have an issue,” said parent Tori Atkins, who was against the referendum. “I think money is the most problematic right now given the current economic situation.”

Without this funding, Dr. Gary said district leaders need a solution for the aging infrastructure.

“We still have a need for academic space with 70-year-old buildings. So, the new question is what is an acceptable plan, how’s that going to be presented, designed, and funded,” said Dr. Gary.

Some voters said money wasn’t their only issue with the referendum.

“We’ve got some overcrowding issues at some of the elementary schools, so we were mainly just concerned we didn’t have a definite plan with concrete information,” said Atkins.

Some parents were also concerned the district would eventually combine the high schools and move some middle school students into Dixie, as classrooms fill up due to growth in the area.

“I will always fight to keep our community schools. We need our schools in our local communities. We’re very rural,” said Atkins.

Superintendent Gary said consolidation wasn’t a part of this plan, but he said now that the referendum has failed, the school board will have to consider all of its options.

“We’ve not said that for the 2022 referendum. Now that we’re back to the drawing board, could that come back up? Yes, that could,” said Gary.

District parents want board members listen to the community and hope both sides can reach an agreement.

“Something needs to be done, but we need to do it within our means for the county, something everyone’s going to be able to afford,” said Atkins.

The school board meets Tuesday and Gary said they’ll discuss the district’s next steps.

Election results show about a 20% voter turnout in the special election.

A mother-of-three has had her arms amputated after being mauled by a group of dogs while walking down the road, her family says.

Kyleen Waltman, 38, was mauled by three dogs outside a home in Honea Path, South Carolina, on Monday.

Her family said she was walking from a friend’s home to her mother’s house when the attack happened. She was seriously injured and had to be airlifted to a medical facility.

Deputies said two of the dogs were pitbulls.

The victim is still in the hospital and facing a long road to recovery

She had to have both arms amputated and part of her colon removed after the attack. She may have to have her esophagus removed as well, her family said.

“When she wakes up, she’s going to wake up without arms, no way to eat,” Kyleen’s sister, Shenna Green said.

The Abbeville County Sheriff’s Office said a witness was able to scare the dogs away from the victim to stop them from mauling her further.

Green told NBC the man who found Kyleen fired a gunshot in the air.

“But by that time, they couldn’t even tell who she was,” Green said. “If it wasn’t for him, my sister wouldn’t be here.”

Emergency first responders began rendering aid to Kyleen as soon as they arrived on the scene.

Kyleen’s sister said she is a mother of three and recently became a grandmother. Family members have described her as outspoken and outgoing. They said she relies on her arms for her job.

“She just found out she’s a grandma and she can’t even hold the grandbaby,” Green said. “That’s going to be devastating.”

On Wednesday morning, the family said Kyleen was in stable condition.

The dogs have been seized by Abbeville County Animal Control. An investigation into the attack is ongoing.

Kyleen’s friend, Tanya Gilmer, is calling for someone to be held accountable for the attack.

“I want justice, justice very much,” Gilmer said.

“She did not deserve that and I don’t wanna blame the dogs because they were taught to be that way. She did not deserve this.”

Deputies announced Wednesday afternoon they arrested Justin Minor, the owner of the dogs, and charged him over the attack.

Minor appeared in court on Thursday and was granted a $15,000 surety bond according to Abbeville County Magistrate Court. He was released on bond Thursday afternoon.

WASHINGTON, May 9, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- The American College of Emergency Physicians (ACEP) congratulates the emergency departments named to the Emergency Quality Network (E-QUAL) Honor Roll for significant achievement in stroke treatment or opioid use disorder quality improvement metrics and performance data sharing.

"The E-Qual Honor Roll represents best in class efforts by emergency departments across the country to standardize and continuously improve the quality of patient care delivered on the frontlines," said Gillian Schmitz, MD, FACEP, president of ACEP.

S.C. Mother Who Lost Both Arms in Dog Attack Returns Home After 7 Weeks in Hospital

A South Carolina mother who was brutally mauled by dogs in March has finally returned home from the hospital, her sister tells PEOPLE.Kyleen Waltman, 38, spent the last seven weeks undergoing intensive treatment at a health care facility after she was attacked by three dogs...

A South Carolina mother who was brutally mauled by dogs in March has finally returned home from the hospital, her sister tells PEOPLE.

Kyleen Waltman, 38, spent the last seven weeks undergoing intensive treatment at a health care facility after she was attacked by three dogs while walking down a Honea Path road on the morning of March 21.

Waltman was narrowly rescued when a passerby discovered her beneath the dogs and scared them off, but the near-fatal injuries she had already sustained would lead to a series of health challenges, surgeries and amputations as her body fought to survive.

Most notably, the mother of three lost both of her arms in the aftermath of the attack.

Throughout Waltman's healing journey, her sister, Amy Wynne, kept the public updated on her progress via a GoFundMe campaign created to help cover medical bills. The updates detailed several triumphs and setbacks — moments when she was awoken from sedation and taken off life support, and moments when unforeseen challenges caused them to put her back under.

On April 4, as Waltman was running a high fever and battling low oxygen levels, Wynne said their mother worried that she was giving up. But even in the difficult moments, she assured people following along that they, as a family, were not giving up.

"The lord has brought her this far for a reason," Wynne wrote in the April 4 update. "Her story is not done."

Wynne's final hospital update, posted on April 27, noted that Waltman was now "fully aware" of what happened to her and "still has a long way to go."

"Kyleen has came a long way from where she was a month ago, till now," Wynne wrote. "And our family is very thankful for all of you for everything that you all have done to help not only Kyleen through this but, also her family. We will never be able to repay you all back for everything."

At the time of publishing, the GoFundMe page set up to support Waltman had garnered more than $250,000 in donations.

PEOPLE confirmed with Abbeville County Animal Shelter & Control that the dogs that attacked Waltman — two pit bulls and one mixed breed — were euthanized immediately after the incident.

Eight additional dogs found on the property were signed over to the shelter by their owner, Justin Minor, and delivered to animal rescues.

Minor has been charged with three counts of penalty for the owner of a dangerous animal that attacks or injures a human, one count of a dangerous animal not permitted beyond premises unless restrained, and one count of a rabies control chapter violation.

He was released on a $15,000 surety bond three days after the attack. It is unclear if he has entered pleas to the charges against him, and his defense attorney could not immediately be reached for comment.
