Kershaw County Magistrate Judge Eugene “Gene” Hartis (center) celebrates his retirement Thursday with his family at the Kershaw County Courthouse. Hartis retired Thursday after working at the courthouse for 30 years, 28 as a magistrate judge. Original from North Carolina, Hartis attended Bethune area schools. He said the past 30 years have gone by quickly, and recognized his family, employees and his friend, the late Sen. Donald Holland. Hartis said he remembered when the magistrate’s office only collected $189,000 in fines. Last year, the office collected more than $1 million, he said, acknowledging the county’s growth in the year since he first became a judge. With Hartis (from left to right) are his granddaughter, Sarah Banks; daughter, Susan Banks; son, Michael Hartis; and wife, Faye Hartis.
