What companies look for

An article in your March 28 edition covered (Ben) Connell's entry into the Kershaw County Council chairmanship race. He seems like a respectable, capable and credible young man. However, I would like to reflect on a statement credited to him in the article. He supposedly said premium recreation areas attract industries and the professionals who operate them. Further, these young professionals would be drawn to the area because you have something for their kids to do.

Boston Strong

No city is more inextricably linked to this country's quest for freedom than Boston. From an early age students learn about the Boston Tea Party, the Boston Massacre and all the other historic events that helped set the colonies on the road to freedom. So it was especially fitting Monday that the city showed that it's indeed "Boston Strong" by completing its famous marathon. Of course, the race came a year after bombers killed three and wounded hundreds during the running of this country's most storied 26.2-mile race.
