Retirement honors

Hudson (left), major of operations at the Kershaw County Detention Center, accepts a plaque from the detention center's director, Peggy Spivey (right), honoring his work with the county upon his retirement last month.

Washington double-speak

Ernest F. Hollings served decades in the U.S. Senate from South Carolina, and he was one of those who were in Washington during a time when politicians from both parties were still willing to step across the aisle and compromise. That seems long ago. But Hollings, despite decades in Washington, never lost his penchant for picturing himself as an outsider. In speeches to Rotary clubs and other organizations across the Palmetto State, he railed against "those boys up in Washington," as if he had never stepped foot in the nation's capital.

America a better place because of men like Charles Murray

As Americans, we're blessed to live in the greatest nation in the world. But all too often we tend to take for granted the heroes among us who fought and sacrificed to protect us, our ideals, and our freedom.

Young volunteers learn about KershawHeath

Why would more than a dozen teen and college students spend a portion of their summer vacation volunteering at KershawHealth medical center? For some -- especially younger students -- it's a chance to gain valuable work experience. Others are looking for opportunities that can help give life to a medical school applicant's personal statement, or add valuable "points" to school or scholarship applications to give them a competitive edge. For most, though, it's the opportunity to learn more about healthcare and to get that all-important insider's view of the industry.

Real world doesn't offer the same atmosphere as college

Dear Annie: I had a fabulous time in college. I was president of my sorority, a peer mentor at our advising center and active in many organizations. I also was granted many awards and honors. I loved rushing around with little sleep and juggling many things on my plate. Now my life is a different story.

Scrapbook -- Aug. 24, 2011

"Experienced jeans" are back again. Today's young people will call my school days "the dark ages." But way back then, our mothers worked nights to patch our school clothes. And we tried to hide the patches. That is probably where the idea of BIG book bags came from. We wanted something BIG to hide the patches. Patches meant that our parents did not have money for nice clothes.

Noted and passed - Nov. 24, 2014

• Property rights vs. community pride is a conflict as old as civilization itself. In recent months, we've reported on two attempts to regulate the appearance of properties in an effort to clean up our communities. Back in October, Kershaw County Council rejected, 3-4, third reading of an ordinance which would have given the county authority to demolish uninhabitable dwellings deemed a nuisance to neighbors or the community at large. More recently, Bethune Town Councilman John Fulmer proposed an ordinance which, if passed in December, would fine owners of blighted properties if they don't clean them up after being ...

Reader: focus on dog owners, not breeds

Regarding your editorial in the Nov. 14 C-I regarding "Pit Bulls," I was disappointed that you chose to use the two recent incidents in Kershaw County as an opportunity to condemn a particular breed of dog, instead of focusing attention on the actual problem, which is the lack of responsible pet ownership. This would have been an appropriate time to support the passage and vigorous enforcement of laws that focus, not on breed, but on people's responsibility for their dogs' behavior. These include measures that hold owners of all dogs accountable for properly housing, supervising and controlling their dogs ...

Letter: ‘If it ain’t broke’ may not serve us well

I read Mr. Charlie Humphries' letter in Friday's Chronicle-Independent with interest. In the letter, Mr. Humphries implies that because the school district is producing strong results, and it is, making investment in the future isn't really necessary right now. As he puts it, the "If it ain't broke" philosophy.
