A Tabor City man, who left blood in the home of Conwayites Charlie Sr. and Diane Parker in 2005, was given two life sentences by Circuit Judge Steven John recently. In a trial that lasted less than a day and a half, Hill was found guilty of two counts of murder and one count of first-degree burglary. He was also sentenced to 30 years in jail for the first-degree burglary charge, but it will run con-


currently with the life sentences. The 26-year-old was arrested in Tennessee where he pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit robbery and was serving a sevenyear sentence, which was set to end in October of 2014 when he was brought back to Horry County to stand trial on the Parkers’ murders. The couple was shot to death in their home in April of 2005. Another man, Richard Gagnon, was found guilty of murder and first-degree burglary in March of 2008. Gagnon was the boyfriend of Diane Parker’s daughter. He maintained his innocence in his trial and still

does. Both of Gagnon’s lawyers, Bill Grammer and Barbara Pratt, sat in on Hill’s trial this week. In 2008, Deputy Solicitor Fran Humphries told the jury that there was another person in the house on S.C. 90 near the S.C. 22 overpass on the night of the murders because there was DNA found in the house that didn’t match Gagnon. Horry County police investigators testified that they found what looked like a trail of blood in the Parkers’ bedroom that didn’t belong to them. They sent samples of the DNA to a national database where it sat for about two years before Hill was arrested in Tennessee and law enforcement there noted a match. Law enforcement speculated that Hill cut himself breaking a glass pane out of

a back door while he was breaking into the Parkers’ house; however, they also testified that they didn’t see any blood on the broken glass, which had been contaminated before police arrived. According to Mrs. Parker’s sister, Carolyn Chapman of Boiling Springs, having to go through a second trial has been tough on the family. “It’s been the hardest thing,” she said. “It’s something you think about constantly, every day. It’s terrible. It’s like a nightmare. You don’t wake up from a nightmare. Chapman, who was the second youngest of six siblings, was very close to her sister. “She was like my right arm,” Chapman said. During closing arguments, Hembree told the

Bruce Hill left the best possible evidence he could. It is Bruce Hill’s blood that cries out the truth. It’s the bodies of Charles and Diane Parker that cry out for justice.” Defense attorney Ron Hazzard told the jury Hill didn’t know the victims and said the evidence leads him to believe someone

Macedonia Baptist Church Youth and Loris High School Football team join together recently for food, fun and fel-

Macedonia Youth feed Loris Lions Football team BY BRADLEY BLANTON FOR THE LORIS SCENE

The youth at Macedonia Baptist Church seem to have an unquenchable desire to help and support their community. Their latest efforts were to feed and motivate the varsity football team before

the hard fought battle with the South Columbus Stallions. The youth fed the team pizza, peaches and cantaloupes. The 37 pizzas looked to be not enough, but the pace slowed and the team only managed to eat about 30. The younger kids were amazed at the amount of

food that was consumed in the short time and the adults were impressed by the manners and discipline of the group. Manners and discipline are becoming more and more uncommon in youth today, but not with this group of balers. The coaching staff has taken up

where the parents left off. All the players were appreciative for the meal and were very attentive during the devotional. After a prayer for a safe game, the team took pictures with the youth group and departed back to the school to get ready to battle with the Stallions.

The Boy Scouts of America has been around for more than 100 years, becoming as American as baseball and apple pie. Throughout their history their mission is unchanged. They still want to make young boys become responsible, productive adult citizens that care about their communities and country. Whether you are a cub scout trying to earn belt loop badges, or a boy scout trying to earn an eagle scout award, there is always plenty to do within the BSA organization. Eagles are the highest honor a young man can earn within the BSA. The Loris area has been fortunate to have produced more than 50 between the two troops. That is a large number coming from our small area. Only five percent of Boy-Scouts make it to become Eagle Scouts. Loris First United SCOUTS, A2


Jerry Hardee still serving as chief after 19 years BY BRADLEY BLANTON FOR THE LORIS SCENE

Jerry Hardee of the Loris Fire Department serves as chief and has held this position for 19 years. Hardee joined the fire department in 1974 and was elected as chief around 1993. He is the husband of Diane Mincey Hardee and the proud father of three children, one stepchild and 10 grandchildren. Hardee enjoys flying, which he has done since the 1980s. He also has a 100 percent crash survival rating, which he earned in 2003 after his plane had some mechanical problems. Resilient and determined, he bought another and still flies today. When he isn’t fighting fires, flying or building houses, he spends time doing one of his favorite things, fishing.

Hill: Found guilty of murder FROM A1 acquainted with them was the perpetrator. “Ever who did this knew this house, knew these folks, knew what they were after,” he said. Hazzard said Hill’s blood sample ended up in the investigation as a result of being improperly cataloged at the Horry County Police Department. During testimony earlier yesterday, Sgt. Rick Beatty of the Myrtle Beach Police Department testified that Hill was involved in a traffic stop on Ocean Boulevard in Myrtle Beach in April of 2005 along Kahlil Moore, who was later identified as a former employee at Charlie Parker’s glass business, MirrorTec.

Hardee: Fire Department Chief serves Loris for many years FROM A1 Hardee has tried his hand at many things over the years. He worked at Talon after graduating from Loris High School. He later managed the Piggly Wiggly here in town for about 10 years. When the store closed in 1984, Hardee began working in the construction business. He is responsible for many of the beautiful homes around Loris. Between the years of 2002

and 2004, he was the owner/operator of a Sears store in Whiteville, N.C. After battling with the fact that it was keeping him from what he enjoyed the most, running fire calls, he sold the business and returned to building quality homes. If you are in the market to build a new house or even a remodel your current one, Hardee is always willing to give you fair and honest quotes. You can reach him

at Hardee and Son Construction at 283-6581. Chief Hardee has also been instrumental, along with many others, in helping the town get a new public safety building. “I am tickled to death about the future home of the Loris Fire Department,” said Hardee. Construction seems to be on schedule and hopefully the project will be dried in by the end of October. Completion is still slated for

George Carrick, testified that Moore worked at the business for a while and ate dinner in the couple’s home on occasion. Carrick said Moore wasn’t working at the time of the murders. Hembree said Hill’s conviction and sentencing finally brings the case to a conclusion. “Obviously, we’re pleased with the verdict,” he said. “We knew there was a second person involved and we knew they left blood behind. This shows the power of DNA, and also shows the value of the CODIS system.” Before the trial started Hill turned down an offer for a negotiated plea with the State for a 35-year sentence in exchange for guilty pleas on the three charges.

Traffic stop results in fatality A motorcycle driver died early Wednesday after losing control and crashing while being chased by Horry County police, according to authorities.

veryone knows about the many long-standing traditions in our schools and sporting events that have been sold out by the liberal, let’s don’t offend anyone’s delicate sensibilities type of bureaucracy we now are forced to live by. It matters not if it was a good thing, a matter of respect, or morality that all young people need to learn. Even though many of our teachers and administrators don’t agree, they have to adhere to the rules and regulations passed down by our state and federal lawmakers who bend to the changes for fear of losing a vote or being on the wrong side.

games, to say a prayer and play the national anthem, to honor God and country. Due to a recent ruling by the Supreme Court, I am told that saying a prayer is a violation of Federal Case Law. As I understand the law at this time, I can use this public facility to approve of sexual perversion and call it “an alternate life style,” and if someone is offended, that’s OK. “I can use it to condone sexual promiscuity, by dispensing condoms and calling it “safe sex.” If someone is offended, that’s OK. “I can even use this public facility to present the merits of killing an unborn baby as a “viable means of birth control.” If someone is offended, no problem... “I can designate a school

day as “Earth Day” and involve students in activities to worship religiously and praise the goddess “Mother Earth” and call it “ecology.” “I can use literature, videos and presentations in the classroom that depicts people with strong, traditional Christian convictions as “simple minded” and “ignorant” and call it “enlightenment.” “However, if anyone uses this facility to honor God and to ask Him to bless this event with safety and good sportsmanship, then Federal Case Law is violated.

Garden Club holds meeting at SWA facility The September meeting of the Loris Garden Club was held at the Solid Waste Authority Facility on Highway 90. The conference room was beautifully decorated with a patriotic theme in remembrance of 9/11. Delicious refreshments were served by hostesses Carolyn Prince and Gloria Kinney. President Carl Claytor gave a report about the Rain Garden, which is a project the club has adopted to beautify the Thelma B. Suggs Butterfly Garden at the Blue-Star Memorial Site. Plans for future proper gardening techniques to maintain plants are in progress. Claytor gave accolades to the yearbook committee for the attractive and outstanding book created that contains the year’s goals, programs, activities and projects for 2011-2012. The yearbook’s title is “Protecting Our Environment Today.”

Members voted to contribute to the college scholarship fund as requested by District Director, Margaret Graham so that the Garden Club of South Carolina can continue with the scholarship program. Clean-up and planting day is set for Oct. 8 in preparation for the city’s “Bog Off” festival to be held on Oct. 15.

losing his eyes doesn’t solve the problem, my husband tells me. The problem, he does tell me, is that when he’s trying to sleep, and I have the light on – on my side of the bed, of course – because I am not trying to sleep, but am reading, it keeps him awake. I lean towards logic. “Why don’t you close your eyes, then you don’t see the light?’ I COLUMN B ask him. He Ettie leans toward Newlands nonsense. “I still see it with my eyes closed, it’s light in the room,” he tells me. “Turn your head the other way,” I reasonably make another random stab at common sense. “It’s not comfortable,” he whines. So I come up with Plan B. I’ll shut the light, go in the other room, and read in there until I’m tired enough to sleep. That won’t work either, he tells me. He can’t sleep when I’m not in the bed. All of a sudden, after 45 years, he can’t sleep when I’m not in the bed? A man who can take a quick nap at a red light? A man who can sleep standing up on line at the DMV? Since when can’t he sleep if I’m not in the bed? People, and their sleep patterns, he tells me, change. His solution is that I use one of those itsy bitsy book lights that everyone bought 10 years ago. Ten years ago my eyes were good enough to read with one of those, I tell him. Not any longer. His version of Plan B is that I read before I go to bed so I’m tired enough to sleep when I get there. “Are these differences irreconcilable,” I ask him? No answer. It’s amazing how lights and books can keep him awake. But even the suggestion of a conversation, and he’s out like, you should pardon the expression, a light.

SEPTEMBER 21, 2011

Daring to be different, believers should stand out L et’s face it, we all hate to appear different for fear of being branded as fanatics, weirdos or even worse. We all have an inherent sense of wanting to belong. From birth, it is the child aiming to please, to the teenager succumbing to peer pressure. As adults we spend more time breaking our backs just to try and “keep up with Joneses.� And there are those who seek to be different for the wrong reasons. God’s Word calls for us as Christians to be different, to set ourselves to be in the world, but not of the world. Romans 12:1-2 pleads with us to be different. “Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God - this is your true and proper worship. Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is - His

good, pleasing and perfect will.� According to this, God’s appeal to us is very urgent. LAYMAN’S Other translaLINES tions offer the words Lacy Hardee ‘beg’ and ‘beseech,’ which proves how vital it is for us as believers to be different, to stand out, to be the light that just might be the only Christ many will ever see in this troubled world we live in. Are we willing to be a Daniel or a Paul, willing to put our lives, our jobs, our whole world on the line for the cause that God has set us apart for? Can we walk in that proverbial “lion’s den� or share our faith inside the walls of a prison that holds

not only us, but so many unsaved people captive in their own thoughts and actions? The answer is a resounding YES! We have the power, the power of the Holy Spirit, which God freely gave to us once we accepted Him as our Lord and Savior. It is up to us to give ourselves freely to God, accepting the challenges that our purpose of reaching others for Christ demands us to do. Further in Romans 12, we find how we are to be different, and how we are really to be serving our fellow man. “For by the grace given me I say to every one of you: Do not think of yourself more highly than you ought, but rather think of yourself with sober judgment, in accordance with the faith God has distributed to each of you. For just as each of us has one body with many members, and these members do not all have the same function, so in Christ we, though

many, form one body, and each member belongs to all the others. We have different gifts, according to the grace given to each of us. If your gift is prophesying, then prophesy in accordance with your faith; if it is serving, then serve; if it is teaching, then teach; if it is to encourage, then give encouragement; if it is giving, then give generously; if it is to lead, do it diligently; if it is to show mercy, do it cheerfully. “Love must be sincere. Hate what is evil; cling to what is good. Be devoted to one another in love. Honor one another above yourselves. Never be lacking in zeal, but keep your spiritual fervor, serving the Lord. Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer. Share with the Lord’s people who are in need. Practice hospitality. “Bless those who persecute you; bless and do not curse. Rejoice with those who rejoice; mourn with those who mourn. Live in harmony with one another. Do not be proud, but be

willing to associate with people of low position. Do not be conceited. “Do not repay anyone evil for evil. Be careful to do what is right in the eyes of everyone. If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone. Do not take revenge, my dear friends, but leave room for God’s wrath, for it is written: ‘It is mine to avenge; I will repay,’ says the Lord. On the contrary: “If your enemy is hungry, feed him; if he is thirsty, give him something to drink. In doing this, you will heap burning coals on his head. Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.� Do we dare to be that different? It is the only way that we as believers can be trusted, to be taken seriously by a world that is seeking answers but not seeing them in us. We must change, and dare to be different, and then and only then can we really change people who will change the world.

Mt. Zion Baptist Church to have Harvest Day


Praise God for Paul. He brought the message of Jesus Christ to the Gentiles. When the Jews rejected Jesus, God sent Paul with a message He wanted us to know about His Son. I thank God for choosing us. The following scripture sums up what God expects of us. Paul wrote it to Ephesians: “Put on the new self, created to be like God in true righteousness and holiness. Therefore each of you must put off falsehood and speak truthfully to his neighbor, for we are all members of one body. In your anger do not sin. Do not let the sun go down while you are still angry and do not give the devil a foothold. He who has been stealing must steal no longer, but must work doing something useful with his own hands, that he may have something to share with those in need.� (Eph. 4:24-28 NLT) In a “nut shell� we are told how to lie and treat our neighbors and live to please God. Paul wrote almost half of the New Testament. What a lot we would have missed if Jesus had not appeared to him on the road to Damascus. God told Paul in Antioch: “I have made you a light for the Gentiles, that you may bring salvation to the ends of the earth.� (Acts 13-47 NLT)

Loris scored in the first, second and fourth quarters on sustained drives of 95, 85 and 63 yards with halfback Douglas Cox going over from the 11 in the first period. Quarterback Kenny Kapps scored from the two in the second period and fullback Lewis Horton scored with a 28 yard play in the fourth.

Upward Soccer program still kickin’ it BY BRADLEY BLANTON FOR THE LORIS SCENE

The Loris First Presbyterian Church is proud to be sponsoring the Upward Soccer Program for the fifth consecutive year. This year they have more than 90 children registered to play. Upward is a faith based sports program. It teaches children and parents alike about Jesus and Christian principles. It also gives the kids an atmosphere where winning and friendly competition are fun but not as important as learning sportsmanship and just having a great time with friends. Upward is also great for families that are always on the go. While most sports have two or more practices and games a week, upward only has one practice and one game a week usually only lasting an hour. Participants are guaranteed equal playing time to avoid the “benchwarmers� mentality. By playing more, kids stay motivated and are less likely to quit and is also good for their physical fitness. Upward caters to children in grades K5 through eighth grade. This year there will be a total of 10 teams. The K5/first grade division will have four teams. The second / fourth grade division will have four teams and the fifth / eighth grade division will have two teams. There will also be two new additions this year. The first new change is the extension of the cutoff age from sixth grade to eighth grade, which will offer more competition. The second new change is also for the oldest age group. They will be using goalies and regulation sized goals. The change was implemented to help bridge the gap between recreational age soccer and high school and to get the kids familiar with FIFA rules of play. Games will be on Saturday from 9-11 a.m., beginning Sept. 24 until Nov. 5. The only exception is that no games will be played on Bog-Off weekend. Loris First Presbyterian Church would like to thank all participants, their families, volunteers, every church and individual, who has helped to make this a positive and successful adventure, The Loris First Presbyterian Church would also like to extend an open invitation to register for their golf tournament. It was rescheduled due to

Hurricane Irene. It will be played on Sept. 25. Captains Choice will be the style of play amongst four man teams. Remember, lowest score wins. Prizes for the top eight teams and more than 30 door prizes will be available to win. Every player also gets gift cards from Martins PGA Superstore. The cost is $50 per person, $200 per team. Black Bear Golf Course will be the featured course for this event.
