Shelton is storing the past

After recently winning the May 1 Primary (assuring re-election with no opposition in August) as Anderson County Register of Deeds, Tim Shelton is continuing his work as if there had been no election at all. And one of the main projects his office is working on is the digitalization of all of their records that are currently on microfilm. “For about five or six years, we’ve been back indexing. Which means we’ve been typing in the indexing information and then manually scanning deeds of trust and the documents we have here. Physically doing that.” Shelton said. Shelton began doing a little research in order to find an easier, more efficient way to digitalize the records in his office.

A simple goal: ‘Inspire students’

Retired U.S. Navy Commander Tommy Mariner introduced a new education concept in Anderson County in August 2001 when he and Chief Allen Davis started the Anderson County High School Navy Junior ROTC program. Seventeen years and more than 1,000 cadets later, Mariner is retiring in June with the conclusion of the school year. He was honored last Thursday during a special faculty meeting. “It was (former Anderson County principal) Bob McCracken’s idea to start a JROTC program and he quickly found the person to lead it when Tommy was interviewed,” said Greg Deal, currently assistant director of Anderson County Schools and an assistant principal at the high school when Mariner joined the ACHS faculty in 2001. “Bob believed starting a JROTC program would inspire students who could benefit from it. Tommy has had an impact on so many lives here over the years — both inside and outside the NJROTC — including strong support from all of the faculty. He was exactly the person needed to start and maintain the program.” Mariner, a 22-year Naval aviator with combat service in the Persian Gulf War and off Beirut during his years in the Navy, was living in Norris and farming when he was named NJROTC commander. The rest is history.
