Here are the top stories in Myrtle Beach today:
- The Grand Strand Humane Society is hosting free cat adoption event today from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. at the GSHS location at Tanger Outlets off Highway 501, across from the Carolina Pottery and next door to The Uniform Outlet. According to WMBF, “The Grand Strand Humane Society will now give feline friends the chance to find forever homes ahead of Christmas. The adoptions also include vaccinations, spaying/neutering, microchipping and deworming along with a stocking full of toys and other goodies.” Hope to see you there! (WMBF)
- Harnessing the power of positivity in a big way, according to WMBF, “The City of Myrtle Beach [is] using ‘positive activation’ to deter crimes in certain areas. One example from the city is Withers Swash Park, where the city transformed some unused areas of the park into a disc golf course and dog park. The Swashbuckler Disc Golf Course opened at the end of September and has already given the area a positive purpose. The Myrtle Beach Police Department reported a nearly 50% drop in calls for service in October 2022 compared to October 2021. “There has been a significant reduction in calls and significant reduction in the nature of the calls,” said Myrtle Beach police Sgt. Tom Vest. “We still have officers that come and check the park, it’s part of our normal duties. And one thing that everyone has noticed is the feel has changed, we’ve given it a purpose.” Vest said some of the calls officers would receive were in relation to overdoses, drug-related crimes and prostitution in the park. The city spent about $30,000 to transform areas of the park, but Assistant Public Information Director Meredith Denari said it’s money well spent.(WMBF)
