COLUMBIA, S.C. – Carolina Precision Foods, LLC – a joint venture of Carolina Fresh Foods and owners of Lake Foods – today announced plans to establish operations in Florence County. The company’s $10 million investment will create 402 new jobs.

Located at 2901 W. Darlington Street in Florence, Carolina Precision Foods, LLC’s new facility will partner with regional poultry processors in custom further processing of poultry products.

Operations are expected to be online in August 2022.

The Coordinating Council for Economic Development has approved job development credits related to this project.

With over 65 million pounds of poultry processed weekly within two hours of Florence, this was the perfect location for our plant. With Interstates 20 and 95 at our doorstep, fresh chicken from Carolina Precision Foods can be processed for over 19 million consumers in a day.

Woman indicted in deadly overdose of 26-year-old Darlington County man

DARLINGTON COUNTY, S.C. (WPDE) — A Darlington County Grand Jury met Thursday and indicted 29-year-old Haley Mooneyham on a charge of involuntary manslaughter in the death of 26-year-old Timmie Cassidy of Darlington.

Cassidy passed away back in April from an overdose.

Mooneyham was arrested in August following a four-month investigation.

Darlington County Sheriff James Hudson said Mooneyham gave Cassidy the drug that caused his death.

Hudson said they have a solid case against her.

"I believe it’s a strong case at this point in time. Naturally, it will have to go in front of a judge and jury. And at that time more facts will be heard about the case. We are going to hold people accountable for their behaviors. And I think that’s what we need to get back to. People being held accountable for what they do. For their actions. And I think once we start doing that, and that becomes a trend then you will see things start to get better," said Hudson.

The case against Mooneyham can now proceed to trial if it's not resolved before then.

Cassidy's parents said they feel good about how the case is going at this point.

“I was overcome with joy. I was happy. It’s not the battle won. But, it’s small little victories and we will take them every day. It’s just another step for Timmie. Making his life matter and other people’s lives matter," said Timmie's mother, Lynn Cassidy.

They said their son didn't know the drug that he was taking contained fentanyl.

“It was a fentanyl poisoning," said Tony Cassidy.

“And that’s how a lot of these kids are dying. Not knowing what they’re getting," said Lynn Cassidy.

The parents said they loved how the Darlington County Sheriff's Office is handling the case, but wish there was a charge that carried a longer sentence.

Involuntary manslaughter carries a prison sentence of not more than five years.

“They need to normalize what this really is. Is this involuntary manslaughter? Or is this drug-induced homicide due to fentanyl poisoning? I mean, that’s what I want to know. Because a lot of states are doing that charge. And, you know call it what it is," said Lynn.

The Cassidys said they are going to be the voice for their son.

They said he meant the world to them and so many others.

"We still feel the same way we feel from day one. Timmie mattered to us. Timmie mattered to a lot of people. There’s not a day that goes by that we don’t miss him. But I don’t look out the blinds or the front door thinking he is just going to pop through that front door. With that being said, any young adult, teenager older person. Anybody out there that is buying stuff off the streets stop. Reach out. Call somebody. Call me. All of my public information is online. Call me I’ll talk it through that next fix. I don’t care, just don’t do it," said Lynn.

ABC15 reached out to Mooneyham's lawyer for a statement on her indictment and she sent the following:

"I represent Haley Mooneyham on her pending Involuntary Manslaughter charge, to which she is pleading "Not Guilty". I was not at all surprised that the Darlington County Grand Jury indicted Miss Mooneyham yesterday. As a general rule, the Grand Jury issues a "True Bill" to every case it hears. This is because the Defense is not allowed to participate in County Grand Jury proceedings. The Grand Jury only hears what Law Enforcement chooses to present at the time and is not privy to all of the evidence in the case. My team and I are investigating the circumstances surrounding this young man's tragic death. When all of the facts are presented, I am confident that Miss Mooneyham will be exonerated."

Osceola still set to host Friday; Harmony headed to Vero Beach Saturday

Toho in Saturday bowl game; SC-PHS canceled

Osceola Coach Eric Pinellas built a ridiculously tough schedule for the 2022 season with the idea it would prepare his team for a deep run in the playoffs. Now, it is time to see if that strategy pays off.

The Kowboys (7-3) are scheduled to open their regional playoff run by hosting DeLand – led by Central Florida coaching legend Rick Darlington – in a Suburban 4 Region 3 quarterfinal game at 7:30 p.m. Friday at Markus Paul Stadium.

“We purposely wanted to play the best all season. We faced option teams, power running teams, teams with great quarterbacks and offensive weapons and teams with great defenses,” Pinellas said of his Kowboy team that saw all seven of its non-district foes advance to the playoffs, including three No. 1 seeds across multiple classes. “We should not see one team in the postseason that would be able to throw anything new at us.”

In DeLand, they will face a 6-4 team that features a single-wing offense led by junior quarterback Tyron Moore, who has eclipsed the 1,000-yard mark both passing and rushing this year. Junior Javon Ross has rushed for close to 800 yards, giving the Bulldogs a powerful 1-2 backfield punch.

“I have all the respect in the world for Coach Darlington, and I know he will have his kids ready to play,” Pinellas said. “They run an offense very similar to Treasure Coast. Our key will be the same as it was for the Treasure Coast game, we have to play disciplined, assignment football and try to shut down the quarterback.”

Last week, Osceola closed out the regular season when Delvin Calhoun booted a 35-yard field on the game’s final play for a 28-26 win over West Orange. The Kowboys entered that game under tough circumstances as its team battled the flu bug all week.

“No disrespect to West Orange, they are a great team,” Pinellas said. “But we had an incredibly crazy week. Twenty-five kids were out Monday with the flu and we could not practice. Tuesday we could only do 30 minutes and Wednesday was limited to group drills in isolation. Thursday’s walk through was the first time all week our entire offensive line was together.”

After leading just 2-0 at the half, Osceola used built a 22-0 lead after two Gunner Holland touchdown passes, but a pick-six and two long touchdown passes within seven minutes put West Orange on top, 26-25. Holland would enter the game, and operate the twominute drill to perfection to set up Calhoun’s game winning kick.

Harmony Coach Don Simon said he would have been satisfied with his team’s regular seasonending 44-0 win over St. Cloud in the Soldier City Classic — but he pined away for at least one more game with this group of Longhorns.

The wish came true Sunday when the FHSAA announced Harmony earned the No. 8 seed in Region 3 and would travel to No. 1 Vero Beach Beach (9-1). With schools closed Thursday and Friday, the game's been moved to Saturday at 6 p.m. at The Citrus Bowl in Vero Beach.

“It’s a tall order, but we’ll hopefully have a great week of practice and represent well against Vero. The main thing is that after our lackluster loss to Viera two weeks ago, our team came together and played a terrific game against St. Cloud and brought the Brass Bugle Trophy back to the Ranch after three years,” Simon said. “Getting in the playoffs put a cherry on top of the season. I told our players they have a chance to play another game when most teams around the state are sitting at home. It’s a great tribute to our senior leadership.”

Two other county teams will play bowl games this week — weather permitting.

The bowl game scheduled for Wednesday between St. Cloud (6-4) and Poinciana (8- 2) was canceled due to the storm; school officials said Poinciana would seek a new opponent for next week.

“Despite having some great senior leadership, especially in Noah Carr and Joseph Clukey, we were a really young team this year,” Bulldogs coach Mike Short said, noting season-opening opponent CFCA may be forfeiting the Aug. 26 result over player eligibility issues. That would get the Bulldogs to seven wins after just three last year.

Poinciana coach Randy Beeken echoed those sentiments. The Eagles just completed their most successful regular season ever, posting just their second winning season in the school’s 31-year history, Poinciana also ended 14 years of frustration in winning their first Battle of the Boulevard rivalry game by beating Liberty 56- 0 as quarterback De’Kwan Bradley accounted for five touchdowns.

“This year was our first 7-win season, our first eight-win season and was our first win over Liberty and now we have a chance for our first nine-win season,” Beeken said. “I’m so happy for our seniors, particularly the ones who started off here and outof- zoned to other schools but decided to come home. We wanted to change the culture of Poinciana football and have made tremendous strides this year. This is another opportunity to continue that path.”

Tohopekaliga ( 6- 4) broke a four-game losing streak with a 27-6 win over Haines City, then Sunday accepted a bowl game invite from Lake Howell (6-4). The teams will meet 7 p.m. Saturday at Lake Howell.

“They reached out to us and said they lined up a sponsor and wanted us to play,” first year Tohopekaliga Coach Anthony Paradiso said. “As we continue to build our program the extra game will serve as a reward for our seniors while giving our young kids an extra game of experience.”

It will also give freshman quarterback Sabby Meassick an opportunity to add to his freshman year stats where he set county records with 3,044 yards and 38 touchdowns.

Gateway struggled with injuries all season and ended up starting five different quarterbacks this season. It lost to Lyman, 48-7, in its season finale to finish at 2-7.

Celebration lost to Lake Region, 47-17 Friday and fell to 1-9. The lone bright spot on the Storm schedule was a 22-21 upset of Tohopekaliga in October. The Storm said goodbye to Oneil Senatus in that game. He finished his career with more than 3,000 yards rushing and 36 career touchdowns, CHS records.

“We obviously did not have the season we wanted to have, but the results were sort of predictable given we were starting five sophomores on the offensive line and played a schedule that included five playoff teams and three other teams going to bowl games,” Storm Coach Jeremy Palmer said. “We played a lot of young kids this year and they are only going to get better.”

DARLINGTON, S.C. (WPDE) — Officials have confirmed that one person is dead following an officer-involved shooting Thursday afternoon.

No officers were injured, according to a Darlington County sheriff.

“At this point, the only thing I can tell you is there has been an officer involved shooting. Officers, they’re OK," said Sheriff Hudson. "You know, what we need to do now is just pray for the families of the deceased. And the families of those officers that are involved in the shooting incident. And we are going to continue to lead SLED work It. And work through it. And wait on the outcome.

As of 7:30 p.m., the scene has been cleared after more than a dozen deputies responded to the situation near the railroad tracks on McIver Road where it meets Old Florence Road in Darlington.

When the scene was active, community members said it appeared that officers were surrounding a man who was walking in the road with a gun.

ABC15 was able to speak with a resident, Will Ross, who claims that just before the incident started, the man came into his auto shop and asked to charge his phone.

After the man was able to charge his phone, he left the auto shop, and Ross said he saw him surrounded by officers roughly 15 minutes later.

“He pulled the gun out on the deputy sheriffs. And they asked him to put the gun down. He didn’t put it down he just kept back it up," said Ross. "Then he took off running. And they chased him down the road down there. So me and my brother were standing out in his yard. And after a while about 15 minutes later. Yes, about 15 minutes later. We heard about 10 or 11 gunshots.”

Several gunshots were heard by neighbors after the surrounded man was asked to drop his weapon by officers for roughly 20 minutes.

Community members said deputies have blocked the road and aren’t allowing anyone in the area.

Neighbors have complained for months about break-ins, shots fired and other crimes in the area of McIver Road.

"Police be up and down the street. Everyday and night you hear the sirens, on the weekends you hear the sirens and it's a lot of break-ins and stuff going on around here," said Ralph Simon; a resident living along McIver Road.

South Carolina State Law Enforcement Division (SLED) officers arrived on scene around 1:30 p.m. Thursday. They said they are the lead investigators in the officer-involved shooting.

The Director of Public Information for SLED, Renée Wunderlich, sent the following statement to ABC15:

"SLED agents are investigating an officer-involved shooting in Darlington County. No other information is available at this time while agents continue to investigate."

More than $30 million investment to create over 50 new jobs COLUMBIA, S.C. – ...

COLUMBIA, S.C. Fiber Industries, a leading American textiles manufacturer, today announced plans to expand operations in Darlington County. The company’s more than $30 million investment will create over 50 new jobs.

A full-service manufacturer, Fiber Industries produces polyester staple fiber for high-end performance fabrics, workwear, knit goods, the automotive industry and more.

Currently employing more than 300 individuals and located at 1000 East McIver Road in Darlington, Fiber Industries’ expansion includes increased capacity through the restoration and modernization of production lines.

The company expects to complete the expansion project in early 2023. Those interested in joining the Fiber Industries team should visit the company’s careers page.

The South Carolina Coordinating Council for Economic Development has approved job development credits related to the Fiber Industries expansion project. The council also awarded Darlington County a $300,000 Rural Infrastructure Fund grant to assist with the costs of building improvements.


“We are excited about the continuing growth of our facility which is now even better positioned to serve the needs of the American textile industry. We also are proud to be part of the wider effort to reshore jobs and bring textile manufacturing back to the USA.

Their commitment to excellence has allowed them to grow and, to date, create nearly 300 full-time jobs. Fiber Industries’ expansion announcement of more than $30 million and over 50 new jobs is great news. We celebrate their decision to continue to invest in Darlington County.
