As we reported on Tuesday, Newberry County Coroner Laura Kneece has determined the cause of death of 22-month-old Madden James Madray, of Prosperity, to be blunt force trauma. She has further determined the manner of death as accident.

 

On Saturday, February 9, at approximately, 8 p.m. Madray was struck by an eastbound Chevrolet SUV, on Macedonia Church Road near Wheeland School Road about six mile outside of Chapin, while apparently playing in the proximity of the fog-line. Madray was pronounced on-scene. Per witness interviews, Madray was playing within close proximity and within eyesight of the adults present, however as children tend to do he got out of eyesight in the blink of an eye. Kneece further states, “As a community we should not tolerate negative comments or public persecution towards Madden Madray’s family. It is sad that in today’s society we are quick to judge and persecute someone over an incident that literally could happen to any parent or any person watching a young child. We, as a community should be praying and offering our continued support for the family of the victim as well as the operator of the vehicle.”

Richard Baum, Acting Director of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP), announced 719 Drug-Free Communities (DFC) Support Program grants totaling $89 million. This represents the largest-ever number of DFC grantees in a single year since the program’s founding. The grants will provide local community coalitions funding to prevent youth substance use, including prescription drugs, marijuana, tobacco, and alcohol. The Newberry County Coalition on Underage Drinking, hosted by Westview Behavioral Health Services, was one of the grant recipients and will receive $125,000 in DFC grant funds to involve and engage their local community to prevent substance use among youth.  

 

“We’re losing more than 60,000 people per year to drug overdose, but if we can stop young people from starting to use drugs in the first place, we can save lives,” said Richard Baum, Acting Director of National Drug Control Policy. “Our local DFC coalitions are a key part of this effort because they are bringing together parents groups, schools, healthcare professionals, law enforcement, businesses, and others to prevent drug use and improve the health of the community.”

 

“Our goal is to make Newberry County a safe and drug-free place for our youth,” said DFC Coalition Coordinator Terecia Wilson. “Prevention is a powerful tool to counteract drug use in our com”

A downtown Newberry route may soon be a part of the Palmetto Trail. Scott Sawyer, director of

Parks, Recreation and Tourism for the city updated City Council Tuesday night.

 

Sawyer said the department had recently been contacted by The Palmetto Conservation

Foundation with interest of connecting the Palmetto Trail through the City of Newberry. The

group is proposing that Newberry be an urban passage, designating Newberry as a “refueling”

stop for food, drink, supplies, shopping or spending the night.

 

The proposed passage would enter the city limits at Jollystreet Road and US 76, follow sidewalks

to Main Street and go through downtown before heading out College Street.

 

With no objections heard from council, Sawyer said he would be back in touch with the

organization. “I think this will be great for tourism and a destination for hikers,” Sawyer said.

 

Scott Sawyer, incidentally, was recognized at the City Council Meeting Tuesday Night for 20

years of service. Pictured here on left with Matt DeWitt, Newberry City Manager.
