There’s a new sheriff’s office in town

Tuesday night I attended the Kershaw County Sheriff Office's community update in the West Wateree area. I want to echo what one of your readers expressed some time ago. We are indeed blessed to have Sheriff Matthews and his committed deputies protecting us. I have lived in Elgin for 13 years. Several of my neighbors and I have been victims of home invasions or car break-ins. Over the years, I have watched little, peaceful Elgin begin an evolution into the Wild, Wild West, but there is truly a new sheriff in town!

Noted and passed -- Feb. 27, 2012

• A recent news story indicated that this year's mild winter had confused plants and animals alike. Flowering shrubs and trees seem to think that it's already spring, and humans are sniffling with allergies which don't normally show up until late March or April. But we'd wager that nearly everyone in Kershaw County has taken great pleasure in the lack of cold weather and the unseasonably warm days which have allowed people to be outdoors and enjoying themselves. By this time in February, we're usually weary of scraping frost off windshields and wearing heavy coats, but ...

Reader: SCHSL decision sends wrong message

Regarding the S.C. High School League decision concerning the so called "brawl" after the Camden-Dreher football game, the league has the legal authority to assess such penalties since the schools are, by their own action, voluntary members. And I understand the league's objective of trying to emphasize that such conduct is not acceptable and should be dealt with appropriately.

Express Care

One of the problems with the expense of health care is the fact that many people tend to use a hospital's emergency room as their primary care facility, going there with normal ailments such as flu and severe colds. Emergency room care is expensive -- too costly to be used in that way. KershawHealth is no different than other hospitals in that regard, and the decision to "split" the emergency department there is a sound one.

KCSO supports cancer research, constable

In May 2008, Nancy Watts, a constable who works for the Kershaw County Sheriff's Office (KCSO), learned she had breast cancer. For many people, a cancer diagnosis is devastating news. It certainly came as a shock to Watts, who is one of the individuals who is tasked with serving civil papers for the KCSO's civil division. Watts' doctor recommended she undergo a mastectomy. Normally, a mastectomy requires the patient be out of work for eight weeks. In Watts' case, she came back after four weeks.

A broader definition of entrepreneurs

Entrepreneurs are somewhat of a mascot for the U.S. economy -- nothing embodies the American dream more than an entrepreneur. Consequently, we've been trained to think there's a positive correlation between the number of start-ups and the health of the economy. But Daniel Isenberg, professor of entrepreneurship, and Fernando Fabre, president of Endeavor Global, argue otherwise. Real, high impact entrepreneurship comes from "scale-ups" instead. Scale-ups are growing businesses that promote a "long-term entrepreneurship," eventually leading to more innovation and increased economic health. The continued growth of established businesses does more for the economy than a high number of ...
