Making a swing through his district, U.S. Rep. Tom Rice, 7th Congressional District, paid his first visit to Johnsonville. Rice had been in Dillon and Marion meeting with community leaders earlier in the day before his 3 p.m. stopover in the Shady Rest Restaurant for "Coffee with Your Congressman."

Rice and his team try to get out into the district about once a quarter, he said. Rice serves on the transportation, small business and budget committees and discussed illegal immigration, the dredging of the Georgetown Port and more with the folks who attended.
