In the almost 40 years I've spent in public education, I have seen a lot of change. When I started in 1975, schools had rotary dial phones, duplicating was done with purple ditto machines, dry erase boards had not replaced chalkboards, special education was a brand new and somewhat unknown mandate, many girls sports were in their infancy, attendance was done in paper registers, and computers and the internet were barely on the horizon. (OK, OK. I won't say that we walked to school uphill both ways barefoot in the snow…)
A few years back, someone I knew ever so slightly died. Though I didn't know him well, I knew him to be mean, egotistical and quite a bully.
• Thank goodness KershawHealth and Kershaw County came to an agreement on the county's taking over emergency management services (EMS). When its deal with Capella Healthcare closes -- likely by March 31 -- KershawHealth will pay $2.636 million for EMS to become a county-provided service starting July 1. In exchange, the county is giving up all interest in any KershawHealth real estate and other property.

Instead, the way has been smoothed for Capella to operate KershawHealth with ...

The ever-present cable news shows are already fixated on the 2016 presidential campaign, with the Republican race a wide-open affair and the Democratic nomination said to be Hillary Clinton's for the asking. Of course, we'll point out Clinton was also the overwhelming favorite in 2008 until Barack Obama came along and stole her candy. But one thing's for sure, no matter whom the parties nominate: massive amounts of money will be spent.

Murder is a strong word and truth be known it's not really what happens (unfortunately) when a crape myrtle, a Southern signature tree is topped, but it has become a familiar vernacular amongst plant people. If crape myrtles did in fact die when they were butchered, then the practice would stop.
Cinderella dances her way into Camden Thursday.
When snow fell on Kershaw County on Tuesday, local shutterbugs took out their cameras (or smartphones) and took some pictures. In the first photo is Reid Graham and his snowman in a picture posted to the C-I's Facebook page by his grandmother, Linda Fender Graham. The second picture is a photo of some daffodils in the snow taken by former C-I editor Martha Bruce near the corner of Mill and Haile streets. It's "kind of a 'mixed message' of winter and spring," she said.
