It was to a cheering crowd Tuesday evening that Brenda Bethune entered her party at Bummz Beach Cafe, awaiting the results that eventually revealed she will be the first female mayor of Myrtle Beach, ousting incumbent John Rhodes from his seat after 12 years.

Bethune had 3559 votes, compared to Rhodes’ 1725 with all precincts reporting, according to unofficial election results.

Bethune won every precinct, with big victories at Dunes 1 — Bethune winning 557-436 — and Jetport 2 — 788-241.

“It’s just astounding the numbers that came in tonight and it’s groundbreaking and I just truly thank everybody who’s supported me, not only two weeks ago but those who came out today and voted for me and people voted for change,” Bethune said. “And I don’t want anyone to feel that’s a bad thing. It’s a very positive thing.

“I want the community involved, I truly care what people think and how they feel and what their ideas are. And I’m just ready to get to work. Tonight is fun, but it’s just a huge responsibility that I take very seriously and I’m ready to get started.”

On Nov. 7, Bethune and Rhodes faced Ed Carey, former Myrtle Beach Mayor Mark McBride and C.D. Rozsa. Bethune and Rhodes had the two highest votes, but because neither candidate received over 50 percent of the vote plus one, a runoff election was required.

“I’ve not had this kind of butt-whooping since my grandmother had a switch,” Rhodes said. “The voters have spoken. I respect their vote. We’ve run a good race.”

Rhodes was first elected to Myrtle Beach’s highest council seat in 2005.

“I’ve had 12 years to represent the city,” he said, swallowing back an onslaught of emotions. “It’s been an honor and a privilege.”

As for becoming the first female mayor in Myrtle Beach Bethune said, “It’s huge to know that that will be a huge responsibility in and of itself, but to me the importance of that is that I hope I can be an example to little girls, to women, to teenagers, to believe in themselves and if they ever feel they want to get involved in something then they just need to go after it and believe in themselves and work hard and don’t give up.”

Key issues surrounding the campaigns included public safety — after a high-profile shooting on Ocean Boulevard that injured several people — and the future of the Superblock properties.

There are proposed plans to tear down the Superblock properties to potentially make way for a new children’s museum and library. What should replace the Superblock properties has been a hot-button topic.

Bethune is in favor of adding police officers, but because of the potential backlog at the police academy, she supports bringing in hospitality officers in order to increase police presence in neighborhoods. She also wants to work to bring a police academy to Myrtle Beach.

For the Superblock properties, Bethune wants to close Main Street to vehicles to create space for restaurants and apartments. She wants to make the downtown area the “heartbeat” of Myrtle Beach.

“If anybody wants to know what Brenda’s going to be like and how she will honor her support, look at the team that she put together,” said Brown Bethune, Brenda Bethune’s husband. “Look at how she brought the community together. This is a woman that knows how to bring a vision to reality. We’ve heard everything through the campaign series. She doesn’t have any political experience and sometimes that’s the thing that you don’t need. So I think she will be a great mayor.”

Criminal Defense Investigators are professionally trained in preparing criminal defenses, locating witnesses, serving legal documents, interviewing police and prospective witnesses, gathering and reviewing evidence, collecting information on parties to a litigation, taking photographs, testifying in court, and assembling evidence and reports for trials. There are several levels of arrest where you may need a criminal defense investigator, there is city court, magistrate court, and general sessions court. At the city courts and magistrate courts level chances are someone will not need a criminal defense investigator, but it is always good to have one just in case. The general sessions courts or big courts as it is sometimes called is where a criminal defense investigator is really needed to help with your case, normally you can hire a criminal defense investigator on your own or consult with your lawyer.

Either way the criminal defense investigator and the lawyer should work as a team to help you in solving your case, although if the criminal defense investigator was hired before or after you hire a lawyer it is best if they both can see eye to eye. An experience criminal defense investigator with a background in law enforcement can really help because he or she knows what to look for and knows when the arresting officer may have not have done everything by the books. Criminal defense investigators can also help the lawyer when it comes to picking a jury for trail, he or she might be aware of potential jurors in the jury pool who may be more than likely to vote in your favor. A good criminal defense investigator leaves no stones unturned when looking for evidence to help his or her clients achieve justice.

Tips To Avoid Holiday Theft Online

Choose reputable shops, even big box stores can get hacked, so choosing a reputable store does not mean sticking with the same old places. But you should pick your online sites carefully, many internet security programs have a feature which tells you if the site you are on is secure. Also choose a store with secure check out, and one that requires you to enter verification that you are a human being. Also look for the padlock at the top of the site, because that icon means that your purchase is secure.
