• Commissioners review economic development, differ on road paving
By Linda Green

When ground is broken on the new hospital April 17, a proposed adjacent 60,000 square foot office building is destined to bring 40 additional jobs to McDuffie County when it is completed.
That is the message that Ralph Staffins, director of Forward McDuffie, gave to county commissioners during their March 4 work session.
The commissioners learned about economic growth as they discussed paving Edmunds Road, located north of where the new University Hospital McDuffie will be constructed.
The new hospital is to be built on 40 acres of land, a half mile north of Interstate 20 off Highway 17, which also fronts the Thomson Bypass.
Staffins and Sandra McVicker, the hospital’s chief executive officer, earlier petitioned the commission to pave the road to provide an additional entrance, gain sewer access and assist in future growth of the new economic corridor north of I-20.
