On paper, January turned out to be a better month financially than KershawHealth has seen in some time.

A somber, but important anniversary

Of all the hundreds of stories I have written for the C-I, perhaps the most gratifying and the most tragic was "Death of a Deputy," a five-part series we published in 2009.

He only closed the store for health reasons that he prefers to keep private.
