TO REQUEST THE DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION AND THE DEPARTMENT OF NATURAL RESOURCES RENAME THE "HOPE FERRY LANDING" ON THE SALUDA RIVER THE "J. B. BARKER BOAT LANDING" AND ERECT APPROPRIATE SIGNS OR MARKERS AT THIS LOCATION THAT CONTAIN THIS DESIGNATION.
Amend Title To Conform
Whereas, Sergeant J. B. Barker started his career with the Department of Natural Resources on October 7, 1974, in District 6 assigned to Lexington County; and
Whereas, he retired on August 1, 2003, with twenty-eight years of dedicated service to the department; and
Whereas, during his career, he spent countless hours on Lake Murray during boating season writing, checking, and enforcing the boating and fishing laws on his beloved Lake Murray, which some have affectionately named Lake Barker; and
Whereas, for all of his hard work, Sergeant Barker was named Officer of the Year for District 6 in 1993; and
Whereas, the department was fortunate to have shared Sergeant Barker with his wife, Cathy, and their two children during his twenty-eight year career; and
Whereas, it would be fitting and proper to recognize the tremendous contributions that Sergeant Barker has made to this State by naming a boat landing along the Saluda River in his honor. Now, therefore,
Be it resolved by the House of Representatives, the Senate concurring:
That the members of the General Assembly request that the Department of Natural Resources rename the "Hope Ferry Landing" on the Saluda River the "J. B. Barker Boat Landing" and erect appropriate signs or markers at this location that contain this designation.
Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be forwarded to the Department of Natural Resources.
