Past sheriffs, deputies were devoted to service

I am writing this letter as a retired Kershaw County deputy, in reference to statements made by our new sheriff. First of all, I want to wish him the best in his new job. Sheriff Matthews has made several statements that the people in the past in Kershaw County did not do their job.

From big ranches to one bedroom flats our dogs are forced to adapt to the homes that we have chosen.

Noted and passed

Multiple sources are saying Katie Couric will leave her post as anchor of the "CBS Evening News," with the show mired in third place far behind rivals NBC and ABC. Couric was lured away from a long and successful tenure at NBC's "Today" show, and she is said to be eying a syndicated TV talk show. What works on a feature-type show such as "Today" doesn't always translate to success in the anchor chair. But we hope Couric finds success in whatever she does as she seems like a pleasant sort.
