Firefighters' welcome

As Kershaw County School District schools opened their doors to students Aug. 17, the Lugoff Fire Department (LFD) opened the doors to its fire trucks at two elementary schools early in the morning. An engine and ladder truck were sent from LFD headquarters to Wateree and Lugoff elementary schools as parents and buses brought students back to school on the nervous "first day."

The old kitchen house

Among many in town, the old kitchen house of Bloomsbury, c 1849, was severely damaged during the April storms. A 105-inch circumference White Oak fell on the roof. The oak broke through the roof and destroyed the upper one-third of the cooking chimney. With the significant damage limited to the old kitchen house, the major impact was the deletion of open fire/family cooking. If not the storm, the summer heat would have temporarily halted open fire cooking until fall.

Doby was the first black player in the American League and carved out an enviable career record. He died in 2003.

• We are comforted when justice is served, and we believe that happened Thursday afternoon when a jury found 33-year-old Willie Thomas Starnes, of Bethune, guilty of armed robbery and murder. The jury found Starnes guilty of deliberately using his vehicle a year ago to knock Alan Thomas Robinson, 67, also of Bethune, off his moped, stealing and loading that moped onto his vehicle and then turning around and running Robinson over. Robinson died the next day. Starnes is then accused of selling the moped for money he used to buy drugs. In fact, Starnes was under the influence of drugs ...
