Sources: Former State Senator Hospitalized After Collapse

Former S.C. State Senator Greg Ryberg is in critical condition after reportedly collapsing at a dinner over the weekend on Sullivans Island, S.C.  The cranky “Republican” businessman from Wisconsin represented S.C. Senate District 24 (Aiken County) from 1993-2013. He later took a government job at the S.C. Retirement System Investment Commission (SCRSIC).

For the purposes of this article, we won’t delve too deeply into our assessment of Ryberg’s public service … or our thoughts on him personally.

We will simply say our thoughts and prayers go out to him and his friends and family members …

According to our sources, the 69-year-old politician-turned-bureaucrat collapsed during a dinner on Friday evening – and began receiving cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) when he was discovered to be non-responsive.  Paramedics were said to have arrived roughly fifteen minutes later and were able to successfully revive him, although multiple sources familiar with the situation tell us he is presently in critical condition and may have suffered “lasting complications” as a result of his collapse.

We certainly hope that’s not the case.

Again … our thoughts and prayers go out to Ryberg’s friends and family.  We wish him the best and hope he makes a fast and full recovery.

I wonder if he choked on the Retirement Systems money he was trying to use to benefit himself and/or his cronies with.

Depot Food Stores will keep their name, but by the end of July they likely will have a new owner.
The Pantry Inc., a publicly traded company that owns 1,149
convenience stores in seven states, signed a definitive agreement Friday
with R&H Maxxon, the company that owns the 53 Depot stores. Pantry
announced the sale Monday.
Peter Sodini, president and CEO of the company, said the deal had been in the works for months.
“They have excellent managers and excellent field people. They’re a
highly desirable chain,” he said Monday. “We’ve had our eye on them.”
The agreement is subject to closing conditions and regulatory
approval, but company officials expect to close the deal near the end of
July by buying out 100 percent of the privately held R&H Maxxon
stock. Mr. Sodini would not disclose how much his company expected to
pay for stock, saying that information usually is released after the
closing. The 53 Depot stores, 41 in South Carolina and 12 in Augusta, will
provide Pantry with a foothold in the Georgia market, Mr. Sodini said.
R&H Maxxon generated sales of about $100 million in the one-year period ending May 1999. Greg Ryberg, president of R&H Maxxon, said in a statement
Monday that Depot Food Stores are an excellent fit with Pantry’s growth
objectives. “We believe the Pantry’s successful track record in acquiring other
convenience store chains, coupled with our dominant presence in our
respective markets should prove to be a strong combination,” he said.
The Pantry Inc. is headquartered in Sanford, N.C. The company has
bought hundreds of convenience stores since Sept. 1 in states such as
Florida, North Carolina and South Carolina.

You Loftis haters are evil bastards. Corruption in Cola is a well known activist. Ask him to contact you.

You Loftis haters are funking fools. But one thing is for sure, you haters are aligned with Ryberg.

too much fried cheese ? inquiring minds wanna know.

Sosorry February 29, 2016 at 3:49 am

Greg Ryberg is admired by many people who knew and worked with him. The only one I know who dislikes him enough to make the sick negative remarks on this page is Curtis Loftis, State Treasurer, who was embarrassed by Ryberg when the Senator told the truth about Loftis publicly. Loftis has a long history of posting on Fits News using multiple pseudonyms which he believes makes him anonymous. He is, of course, wrong. Can you imagine a State Constitutional Officer acting this way? Something is very wrong. Our thoughts and prayers are with Mr. Ryberg and his family.

SamGTalkslikeaperv February 29, 2016 at 6:10 am

I enjoy posting negative things about Curtis Loftis on here. I enjoy talking like a perv and making money for nothing off the backs of present and future state retirees so I can support my dysfunctional family.

Greg March 1, 2016 at 6:21 am

What a stupid comment. If only we could ban trolls like you.

Vile March 3, 2016 at 8:31 pm

Francis February 29, 2016 at 6:21 am

This thread makes it obvious that the people close to Ryberg are the Loftis haters. Their putrid remarks are all over this site. I did not know Ryberg, but if these sick haters are his people then I can’t have much respect for Ryberg.

Watcher February 29, 2016 at 6:35 am

The more they bash Loftis the more they make his points. He fights the bad guys, bad guy trash him on internet, average person says Loftis is right.

They may be haters but mainly they are dumb.

You haters are crazed.

Karma. Late. But, Karma nevertheless.

IKnow March 3, 2016 at 8:04 pm

Who is corruption in Columbia?

Mark March 6, 2016 at 10:54 am

Even as Greg Ryberg lays in a death bead, brain dead, the people he enlisted are still hating on Loftis. Sick bastards are al lined up together.

Corruption in Columbia is not Loftis. Ask him to call you. He is a well known activist that has nothing to do with Loftis.

This shows how depraved and evil these haters are. Sam Griswold, Daniel Brennan, have some decency.
