The Kershaw County Memorial Hospital Board of Directors made a decision Monday night that has been years in the making -- to begin the search for an appropriate location in the West Wateree area to house an ambulance station and to move forward with putting such a station in operation.

The hospital administration was authorized by the board to begin looking for a site for the ambulance station and pulling together the elements to put an Emergency Medical Service unit in action in the Lugoff-Elgin area on a two-year probationary basis. According to data presented by Bill Moser, Kershaw County EMS made a total of 2,664 calls county-wide during the nine month period through September, with an average of about 7.3 calls per day. About 576 of these calls, or 20 percent, came from the West Wateree area.

Ten years have passed since “Camden Homes and Heritage” was published. That book focused on the exteriors of the many historical homes. Now comes an opportunity to get a look inside no less than 32 Kershaw County homes, some antebellum, some contemporary, but all boasting fine furnishings and accoutrements. 

Author Ethel Wylly Sweet and photographer Robert M. “Robin” Smith have come up with a truly captivating sequel to their first collaboration and have named it “The Decorative Arts of Camden and Kershaw County.” The title is a mouthful, and as it suggests, the handsome 88-page coffee table book is packed full of antique and other attractive furnishings, art and artifacts, which reveal the cultural heritage of the area.


The Camden-Lugoff Area Shag Society recently elected new officers at its regular meeting place of Plums Lounge. New officers include J.M.
