Kershaw County residents with long political memories might recall the 1980 Democratic presidential campaign, when Sen. Ted Kennedy challenged incumbent President Jimmy Carter for the party's nomination.

But a recent newspaper column by the town's urban forester, Liz Gilland, was a bit troubling in its tone.
