To pre-register, see https://www.officialmyrtlebeachsports.com/2021youthtfclinicap.html.

10.   Interior construction on the HTC Aspire Hub, a future co-work space on Ninth Avenue North, is coming along nicely, and that’s the subject of our Photos of the Week.  Ninth Avenue North is being transformed with building renovations, all part of the city’s Arts & Innovation District.  HTC is providing $250,000 for technology and up-fitting of the co-work space.  These photos give a sense of how the shared office space will look when finished.  Dozens of local entrepreneurs have applied to operate a business from one of the mini hubs.  Other buildings on the street also are receiving façade renovations, in keeping with their historic character.  Interest is high for leasing or purchasing those spaces.

11.   Did you know...  That the City of Myrtle Beach’s Solid Waste Division collected 39,952 tons of solid waste during the fiscal year that ended June 30, 2021?  That’s 79,904,000 pounds in all, or 2,443 pounds per capita.  The total includes: 63,677,600 pounds of garbage; 8,554,040 pounds of yard waste; 4,238,080 pounds of commingled recyclables; 3,317,940 pounds of bulky junk; 76,800 pounds of scrap metal; 27,380 pounds of electronic waste (computers, monitors, printers and TVs); and 12,160 pounds of commercial cardboard.  That’s a new city record!
