Safety of all kinds -- Internet, boating, fire and highway -- was a key topic for youngsters attending the Kershaw County Sheriff’s Office (KCSO) STARS Camp. The campers also learned about bullying/cyber-bullying, basic first aid and alcohol and drug abuse prevention. In addition to a visit from the KCSO K9 unit, the youngsters met a special guest, Marine Lance Cpl. Kyle Carpenter of Gilbert (standing, fourth from left), who was severely injured in Afghanistan when he threw himself in front of a grenade to protect a friend. Carpenter, who has been nominated for the Medal of Honor, spoke to the youth about courage, honor and respect. STAR campers here included Dalton Elders, Jacob Arledge, Gage Berkowitz, David Anderson, Cameron Griffin, Alisha Robinson, Lareik Briggs, Malik Green, Raquan Sutton, Travor Sutton and Jaqueis Stanley. Camp advisers were Rob Evans, Carl Olson, Ryan Anderson and Tony Wages.
