We would also like to express public gratitude to several local retailers for their efforts in reducing underage drinking and tobacco use in Travelers Rest.  As a member agency of the Greenville County Alcohol Enforcement Team, the TRPD sent an undercover operative into several retail establishments on December 17, 2015 to attempt to purchase alcoholic beverages.  To sell to this person would have been a violation of law as this person is underage.   We are happy to report that twelve businesses out of thirteen checked the operative’s ID and refused to complete the sale.  These businesses are Molinas, Walmart, CVS, Sidewall Pizza,  Swamp Rabbit Brewery, Copperhead Mountain Distillery, Shortfields, Blue Ridge Bar and Grill, Willis ABC, Spinx, Bi-Lo, and Pizza House.

Valerie Adams, who lives in the State Park Road area, awoke Saturday morning anticipating setting up a garage sale, only to discover a family of four black bears in her back yard. Although she contemplated cancelling the sale, she decided to go ahead with it, all the while the four bruins slumbered peacefully high up in the branches of a tree. A family of bears, probably the same ones, have recently been spotted in the general area by other individuals as well. By the way, the bears were not for sale.
