  8. 8. John Miller 1744-1807 John Miller was the founder of the first daily newspaper in South Carolina and the third daily in the nation on November 30, 1784. As printer of at least six different major English newspapers and two political magazines between 1770 and 1783, Miller was constantly involved in serious conflict with the English government over freedom of the press. Although rarely mentioned in history books, his role in five legal battles played a significant part in the fight for freedom of the press in England. His freedom of the press struggles entangled him in at least six legal battles for which he was imprisoned three different times for more than two years and fined more than 2,100 pounds between 1770 and 1783. Born in London in 1744, Miller was apprenticed at age 16 to The Gazetteer, the largest daily newspaper in London. After completing his apprenticeship in 1767, he published The London Evening Post, The London Courant, the London Mercury, the General Advertiser, the London Museum, the British Monitor, the London Recorder and Miller’s Monthly Magazine. Facing imprisonment again when the Revolutionary War ended, Miller started printing The South Carolina Gazette and Advertiser in Charleston on March 15, 1783. When he converted it to a daily on November 24, 1784, it became the first daily in South Carolina and the third daily in America. After two years, he sold The South Carolina Gazette and Daily Advertiser to Benjamin Franklin Timothy in 1785 and moved to Pendleton in the sparsely settled upper section of Ninety Six District, which until 1777 had been Cherokee territory. As the recently opened northwestern frontier of South Carolina began developing, Miller became one of the founding leaders. In 1788, Miller was elected as a delegate for the district on the south side of the Saluda River. He attended the state convention and voted to ratify the federal Constitution in 1788. Two years later he was elected as a delegate for Pendleton County to attend the state constitutional convention in 1790. He became commissioner to manage elections in 1789, commissioner to locate a court house in 1789 and clerk of court in 1790. In 1794 Miller became corresponding secretary for the Franklin or Republican Society of Pendleton County. Miller was furious about the Jay Treaty, which he thought was far too generous and contained too many concessions to the British government. He wrote the resolutions of the Franklin Society, a branch of the pro-French Republican Society of South Carolina, and read his resolutions before the assembled militia companies that were gathered around a huge “liberty pole” in Pendleton. In November 1795, Miller announced plans to start the western-most newspaper in South Carolina, a weekly to be called the Back Country Gazette of South Carolina and North Carolina & Georgia Courier but he couldn’t find three hundred subscribers in the sparsely settled area. He finally started his last newspaper, Miller’s Weekly Messenger on January 16, 1807 but died November 26, 1807 at the age of 63. In the quarter of a century after Miller left England, the fight for freedom of the press continued, but it was not until 1803 that reporters in England finally won the right to sit in the gallery of the House of Commons in England. Even though Miller had to flee from England before the freedom of the press battles were won, he should be remembered for his passionate participation in the printers’ battles against unconstitutional libel laws, his courageous leadership in defying the law prohibiting coverage of Parliamentary debates and votes, his efforts to win freedom of the press in England and his undying efforts to print a newspaper, no matter how remote the location or primitive the conditions. He is one of the forgotten soldiers in the fight for freedom of the press. Hall of Fame South Carolina Press Association

Journalism Hall of Fame was established in 1973 to recognize and honor men and women who have excelled in their craft and made significant contributions to journalism and their communities. Only 67 newspaper journalists – from Colonial and Civil War days to the present – have been chosen by their peers for this recognition. Honorees must have made their journalistic reputation in South Carolina. If the reputation reflects achievements outside the state, the nominee must have been a native of South Carolina. Nominees must have been deceased for four or more years. The S.C. Hall of Fame began in 1972 when SCPA President William L. Kinney Jr., of Bennettsville, acting on a suggestion from Secretary-Manager Reid H. Montgomery, set in motion activities that led to the establishment of a S.C. Press Association Hall of Fame. The first Hall of Fame inductees were presented at the SCPA Winter Meeting in 1973. Honorees are chosen by the press association’s Hall of Fame committee. This year’s committee was comprised of John Heath, retired from Beaufort Gazette; Tom McLean, retired from The State; Pat McNeely, retired from the University of South Carolina's School of Journalism and Louis Sossamon, retired from The Gaffney Ledger.

  27. 27. BY HEATHER GALE HEATHER.GALE @MYHORRYNEWS.COM Angie Pipkin’s family and friends want to remember the woman they loved with a vigil at the Great Pee Dee River in Darlington County where divers and police are continuing to look for her body. They’re just not sure of the date and time yet. Kompassist member Samantha Jones said at the vigil friends plan to throw roses into the water in remem- brance of Pipkin, who disappeared sometime around mid-January after her dad dropped her off at the Aynor IGA. “Right now we are waiting for word on whether police have found her remains, but in the meantime, the family would like to have a vigil for her,” Jones said. “We talked to her mother and she would like the com- munity to come together at the river and throw down her favorite flower: roses.” According to police, the 32-year-old Galivants Ferry resident was last seen on security cameras Jan. 16 at about 9:30 p.m. at the Wilco Food Mart at 6222 S.C. 707 in Myrtle Beach. She was reported missing Jan. 22 after her mother said she hadn’t spo- ken with her in more than a week. Randy Gale Robinson, 46, of Murrells Inlet is charged with murder in the connection with Pipkin’s disap- pearance, according to an Horry County police arrest warrant.

Despite the state’s cancella- tion of the Coast initiative, the transit agency has figured out a way to reac- quire more than 50 shelters and is planning to install them. Coast RTA General Manager Myers Rollins said that when the state Department of Transportation (SCDOT) ter- minated the program and re- claimed the shelters, he ap- proached the Waccamaw Re- gional Council of Govern- ments with an idea. “I had to find a Plan B,” he said. “I reached out to the folks at Waccamaw COG who originally handled the money and they were willing to work with us to revive the program.” The COG serves as a con- duit to funnel public dollars to See COASTRTA, Page 3A What’s good for goose isn’t good for Surfside BYTOMO’DARE THEHERALD Even though it’s Can-Am week, not all visitors from Canada are welcome in Surf- from the council because the geese pollute the stormwater ponds with the water eventu- ally making its way to the ocean.

Businessleadershopecreative marketing,legalmaneuveringwill bringmajorcraftbrewertoMB BYCHARLESD.PERRY THEHERALD Myrtle Beach business leaders hope they can land a major craft brewer and more than 300 jobs by tapping into their cre- ative resources. But it will likely take some innovative legal maneuvering to bring the company to the Grand Strand. California-based Stone Brewing Co. is looking to build a brewery east of the Mississippi River and local officials are try- ing to persuade the beer maker to come to the beach. The Myrtle Beach Regional Economic Development Cor- poration (EDC) on Wednesday launched a Facebook page (“Stone Brewed on the Beach”) to build support for the brew- ery and EDC officials plan to meet with the company on March 27. “It would be a really good fit for us,” said Brad Lofton, the EDC’s president. “There’s a tourism piece to it, but they would be brewing beer for the East Coast. And so we like the fact that we can build their brand here.” The biggest challenge for the EDC, however, could be the state’s laws for breweries and brewpubs, said local beer guru John “Jilly” Garner, who runs the website myrtlebeachcraft- beer.com.
