Anderson County Council meeting began with the presentation of the colors by the Palmetto High School Air Force Junior ROTC Tuesday night. That was followed by an appearance by Ms. Misty Nicholson, whose husband Trooper Eric Nicholson was killed in the line of duty in 2000.
Following his death, she raised funds to acquire a K-9 officer in his honor. She experienced such a response that she started a foundation and has since provided police dogs to several different departments.
Also on hand was Anderson County Deputy Creamer, who lost his K-9 partner in December, from cancer.
