Orange Box  Controlling coyotes in urban areas...  Myrtle Beach is an urban area, but we still have wildlife all around us.  Residents have reported seeing coyotes in or near their neighborhoods.  To address the issue of nuisance wildlife, the city has created a publication called, “Controlling Coyotes in Urban Areas.”  It’s available in two print-on-demand formats.  The first is a standard tri-fold brochure, while the other is a two-page flyer(Note:  When printing, be sure to set “page scaling” to “none.”  Both documents are designed to be printed at full size.) 


Orange Box  The robots are coming...  Build a working robot from a box of parts?  That’s the task for 66 teams of high school students from South Carolina, the East Coast and Canada in the 13th annual Palmetto Regional FIRST Robotics Competition, February 26-27, 2016, at the Myrtle Beach Convention Center.  Some 1,200 competitors in grades 9-12 will discover the rewards and excitement of careers and education in science, engineering and technology.  Working with teachers and professional mentors from the community, they have six weeks to build and test a robot to accomplish specific tasks.  The teams warm up Thursday, February 25, with robot inspections and practice rounds, followed by the tournament itself. Admission is free!   Daylong volunteers are needed to help with this lively event featuring a “pit” area and fast-paced competitions.  To volunteer, visit
