ROBERT W. LEACH, SR. for Committee.

            

A CONCURRENT RESOLUTION

TO REQUEST THE SOUTH CAROLINA DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION TO NAME THE SECTION OF SOUTH CAROLINA HIGHWAY 6 FROM THE POINT WHERE IT MERGES WITH SOUTH CAROLINA HIGHWAY 45 IN THE TOWN OF EUTAWVILLE TO THE BERKELEY COUNTY LINE AS THE "DANNY BELL MEMORIAL HIGHWAY".

Whereas, the members of the General Assembly of South Carolina consider it an honor and a privilege to request that this stretch of highway be deemed the "Danny Bell Memorial Highway"; and

Whereas, the residents along this stretch of highway have expressed their positive approval of the installation of this sign and wish to memorialize their beloved friend and neighbor, Danny Bell with this honor; and

Whereas, born November 11, 1927, in Branchville, South Carolina, Mr. Bell was educated in the Public Schools of Charleston and went on to the Radio-TV Technical School in Kansas City, Missouri; and

Whereas, after spending four years in Alaska in the early 1950s in the law enforcement capacity for the city of Anchorage and working as a radio technician for bush pilots, Mr. Bell married Maureen Alexander in Anchorage in 1956; and

Whereas, upon returning to South Carolina, the Bells bought the former Winterpark Marina and Campground in Eutawville in 1963 and operated it until 1991; and

Whereas, one of the founders of the Swamp Fox Boat Club in 1964, Mr. Bell began one of the first water rescue programs on the Santee Cooper lakes, and he was a regular exhibitor in outdoor and sportsmen's shows all across the country; and

Whereas, the Bells entertained sportswriters from all over the eastern United States from the 1960's through the 1980's, helping to generate literally hundreds of stories about Santee Cooper country; and

Whereas, Danny Bell will live on in the memories of his friends, and this highway will be a fitting reminder of his many contributions to the Santee Cooper area. Now, therefore,

Be it resolved by the House of Representatives, the Senate concurring:

That the members of the General Assembly, by this resolution, request the South Carolina Department of Transportation to name the section of South Carolina Highway 6 from the point where it merges with South Carolina Highway 45 in the town of Eutawville to the Berkeley County line as the "Danny Bell Memorial Highway".

Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be forwarded to the South Carolina Department of Transportation.
