      For the second time this year, Arseniy Parshikov’s custom car stereo installment business has fallen victim to burglars who have stolen thousands of dollars in stereo equipment.

                  Tough times forces Yocona in Exile to close this weekend

                  After 15 years of serving eclectic, but always delicious dishes, the Yocona In Exile restaurant — previously Yocona River Inn — will close its doors this weekend.

                  Yocona in Exile was opened in Abbeville after a fire in the spring of 2009 destroyed the original restaurant, Yocona River Inn. Osborn relocated her restaurant and renamed it when she reopened it a year ago in Abbeville. The new restaurant gave the downtown area of the tiny town a spark of new life. (December 2, 2010, Page 2A)
