S. Printed 5/7/14--H. [SEC 5/8/14 12:59 PM]
Read the first time April 30, 2014.
To whom was referred a Concurrent Resolution (S. 1161) to request that the Department of Transportation name the interchange located at the juncture of Interstate 95 and South Carolina Highway 61 in Colleton County, etc., respectfully
That they have duly and carefully considered the same and recommend that the same do pass:
LISTON D. BARFIELD for Committee.
TO REQUEST THAT THE DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION NAME THE INTERCHANGE LOCATED AT THE JUNCTURE OF INTERSTATE 95 AND SOUTH CAROLINA HIGHWAY 61 IN COLLETON COUNTY "SCHP PATROLMAN FIRST CLASS WILLIE E. PEEPLES MEMORIAL INTERCHANGE" AND ERECT APPROPRIATE MARKERS OR SIGNS AT THIS INTERCHANGE THAT CONTAIN THE WORDS "SCHP PATROLMAN FIRST CLASS WILLIE E. PEEPLES MEMORIAL INTERCHANGE".
Whereas, while on duty on June 7, 1979, Patrolman First Class Willie E. Peeples was engaged in pursuing a motorcycle for speeding; and
Whereas, after stopping the motorcycle, Patrolman Peeples was shot by its driver and died the next day. The driver was captured and charged with murder; and
Whereas, Patrolman First Class Peeples was a five-year veteran of the Patrol and a native of Barnwell County; and
Whereas, his survivors included his faithful wife, Mrs. Elouise Peeples, and their children, Lashonda, Annie, Lisa, and Katina; and
Whereas, it would be fitting and proper to memorialize Patrolman First Class Willie E. Peeples by naming a highway interchange in his honor. Now, therefore,
Be it resolved by the Senate, the House of Representatives concurring:
That the members of the General Assembly request that the Department of Transportation name the interchange located at the juncture of Interstate 95 and South Carolina Highway 61 in Colleton County "SCHP Patrolman First Class Willie E. Peeples Memorial Interchange" and erect appropriate markers or signs at this interchange that contain the words "SCHP Patrolman First Class Willie E. Peeples Memorial Interchange".
Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be forwarded to the Department of Transportation.
