Opening Arguments


With all kinds of crime and corruption going high-tech, it's nice to know there's still room in the world for some good, old-fashioned petty improprieties:

The city's assistant street commissioner was fired after neighbors complained the sidewalk in front of his home was replaced while the rest of the block was ignored.

Darryl Rensel was fired last week following an investigation by the Anderson Board of Public Works, board Chairman Greg Graham told The Herald Bulletin for a story Saturday. Graham would not comment on the what the investigation found.

Street Department workers replaced the sidewalk in front of Rensel's Fletcher Street property in late July. While the sidewalk was replaced on that block, nowhere else on the street was work done.

Maybe he was just having the work tested in front of his house so he'd know it would be done right for his neighbors.
