Mr. Cahn, you stated in Monday's Chronicle-Independent that you want to hold off judgment of George Zimmerman till after a trial. It seems, in my opinion, that you have already tried him. You make comments about what was said over the phone and that you can hear Zimmerman moving and cocking his pistol. Can you to tell which way he was headed or what type of pistol was used by listening to sound over the phone? I have not heard what type of pistol was used; have you?
As a society, we must have strong laws and appropriate punishment for the perpetrators of hate crimes against humanity. No free society can function without prison walls. How long will Americans be a land of prosperity when we cannot protect our children?
I am very proud to live and work in Kershaw County. Being part of the business community, my wife and I attend county council meetings from time to time. I feel this to be very important and almost necessary. We benefit by business growth. County council meetings can offer business benefits and we usually come out feeling glad that we attended. These meetings allow us to gain an appreciation of the councilmen and what they do, or may be up against.

Summit carved out one of the most incredible records of any coach in any sport, finishing her career after 38 years with 1,098 wins and only 208 losses and more championships than anyone can count. We are all left to ponder one inescapable fact: if dementia can strike someone as young (59) and as active as Pat Summit, is there anyone who's immune?

During the last week, we have published two reports on KershawHealth. The first, growing out of the hospital's most recent board of trustees meeting, focused on its market share. It is relatively healthy, thanks to KershawHealth's being the only hospital in all of Kershaw County. More people living in the county turn to KershawHealth for emergency care than anywhere else. However, the report -- broadly speaking -- noted a decrease in market share in outpatient services and only slight increases for inpatient services.

I was browsing the internet looking at different sites listing historical events of the past 100 years and was surprised to see how much of history had been left off. So many events which have taken place during the past century which have been instrumental in the growth of this country have been left out of our history books and articles of today.
