It’s been nearly five years since Georgetown County Council passed a resolution promising to name U.S. Highway 17 Business in Murrells Inlet after its most famous resident--author and actor Mickey Spillane.You’ll find the full article here.
So far, it’s a promise that has not been kept.
Spillane died of pancreatic cancer in July, 2006--a month after the resolution was passed.
“I’m mad. The county should have followed up on it,” Mickey Spillane’s widow, Jane Spillane said this week.
