SC solicitor dies after battle with cancer - The State

Monday, January 16, 2017

Hammond in 2015, a 2008 quadruple homicide in Anderson County and the death of Clemson University student Tucker Hipps , who died while on a fraternity run in 2014. Adams decided to not prosecute a Seneca police officer for the shooting of Hammond, she helped get a life sentence and four murder convictions for Nathan Dickson and she oversaw the investigation into Hipps' death.David Ross, executive director of the South Carolina Commission on Prosecution Coordination, worked as a prosecutor with Adams in the 10th Circuit. He called her a sweet, kind person with a memorable laugh."But she was a fighter," Ross said. "Her fighting spirit shows in the way she battled cancer for so long. We were good friends and I will miss her."As solicitor, she championed and implemented a worthless-check unit to help curb the number of checks bounced in local businesses. In 2015, she introduced the first courtroom dog in South Carolina. Roma, a Labrador retriever, is often put into service to calm nervous trial witnesses or distraught family members involved in a case.Outside the courtroom, Adams was involved in community work. She served on the board of directors of Collins Children's Home in Seneca, a Christian nonprofit that works with needy children and families. Her husband said she was also passionate about the mission of Safe Harbor, an agency that exists to help victims of domestic violence.Adams donned her dancing shoes in 2012 for "Dancing for our Heroes." In the charity event, she raised money for the Cancer Association of Anderson."That's one of the funny things I'll miss about her," her husband said. "She would hear some song on the radio and just start some fun, crazy dance. She was full of life and full of joy and she knew the value of appreciating every moment."In addition to her husband, a former chairman of the Oconee County Republican Party, Chrissy Adams is survived by the couple's two sons, 14-year-old Gregory and 9-year-old James. She is also survived by her mother, Helen Theos of Charleston, and her brother Nick of Atlanta.

'Heart as big as a school bus': Dot Jackson, former Observer columnist and novelist, dies - Charlotte Observer

Monday, January 09, 2017

Novello Prize, by the Novello Festival Press of the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Public Library. “Refuge,” set in 1929, is the story of Charleston’s Mary Seneca Steele and her flight to freedom, family and love in the Blue Ridge Mountains. It won the 2006 Weatherford Award and the Appalachian Book of the Year Award. In 2008, John F. Blair of Winston-Salem brought out “Refuge” in paperback.Award-winning Appalachian State novelist Ron Rash called Jackson’s novel “a beautifully rendered portrait of a lost time and place.”That place was always working its way into Jackson’s prose.In 1982, about a year before she left the Observer, Jackson wrote about the funeral of a cousin in Central, S.C.“We come ... from all those far-flung places where we live and sometimes don’t belong. Whoever we are, in those other lives, we are Totsie and Teeny and Red and Bud and Bitsy, when we fall upon each other’s necks in consolation.”And as they gathered in the cemetery, she noted: “One cannot walk but to walk upon our folks. Nature is nearly always kind to us, though we tend to die in winter.”And she concludes:“And it was warm for us, this time, a beautiful false spring, rustling in the dry leaves of the church yard. The lilac bushes on Bird’s grave were showing clumps of tiny purple buds.“Up the road toward Six Mile, the pastures greened on that old land where Aunt Bird and her daughters had been raised. The surface things change. Old houses burn and crumble; new ones rise, sometimes in designs that look freakish (to me) on that landscape…”“But we do not live with that; we live with what it used to be. It is our land, though we come to it only to put another of us down.”...
