  • Paul Slazas, come on down!

    In his red shirt that said “Flew all night for The Price Is Right,” Paul Slazas was called to come on down March 6 at CBS Television City in Los Angeles.
    The audience’s screams were deafening, and everyone was giving Slazas high-fives. The Indian Land 71-year-old jumped over a couple of chairs when his name was called.
    The studio was so loud he actually couldn’t hear his name called, but he saw it flashing on a screen.

    As the newly appointed state fire marshal, my first priority is identifying the contributing factors leading to these deaths and utilizing the resources of South Carolina to keep this number from continuing to rise. We cannot bring back the lives lost, but through state, local, private, and public partnerships we can do a lot to prevent future loss.
