      MONCKS CORNER, S.C. (AP) - The state-owned utility Santee Cooper has approved almost $11 million in loans to rural counties to help pay for industrial development projects.

      The utility said Monday it is loaning $4 million to Beaufort County to help build a $7.5 million commercial building in the county's Myrtle Park Industrial Park.

      A $4 million loan will help Orangeburg County build an $8.5 million industrial building in the county's Matthews Industrial Park.

      Santee Cooper also loaned $2 million to Calhoun County to help pay for an industrial building in the I-26 Industrial Park. An $850,000 loan to Jasper County will help build a $2 million industrial building at the Cypress Ridge Industrial Park.
