You didn't even see the output from the echo command?
Try sticking one in before the case statement so it would always run
regardless of start or stop.

OK.   But do you know whether it writes that output to STDOUT
or maybe to STDERR.    If it is STDERR you will need a little
different syntax than  '>>'  Something like   '2>&1 >' filename

Just as a test, I made the following sample script and named it   chkrc.sh
and put it in /usr/local/etc/rc.d  with execute permission.
It works just fine running from command line or as part of boot
or shutdown.    You might try it as proof of concept and go from
there.    Don't include the lines of dashes I put to deliminate it.
Start with the #!/bin/sh line and end with the blank echo line.
