KCSO need more funding

Last year the Kershaw County Sheriff's Office responded to approximately 43,000 calls for service. We did this with at most, 6 deputies per shift. Today as I am writing this we have 4 deputies covering the entire county. Most people in Kershaw County don't know that the Lancaster Co. Sheriff's Department also answered about 43,000 calls for service last year. (Lancaster County is significantly smaller in area than Kershaw County. They have about 10,000 more residents.)The difference is they handled this with 12 deputies per shift. As a result Lancaster's response times ...

Noted and passed - Dec. 24, 2012

• As you settle back to enjoy holiday football, we have a startling statistic for you regarding the size of college football players. A recent survey which focused on linemen over seven decades revealed the average lineman today weighs more than half again as much as his 1950 counterpart. Over that time, according to a recent news report, the average offensive and defensive lineman grew to just over 290 pounds from just above 190.

Was it really Santa Claus?

Childhood is a wonderful time! A small child really believes he or she could "catch a falling start and put it … in a pocket." Nothing is impossible. Also, the warmth of love and acceptance comes from family and friends. Nowhere are the problems of finance or payment. Some children even tell their parents, when told they are big boys or girls, "I don't want to grow up." Even the story Peter Pan concerns a group of children who fly off with Peter, who has never had to grow up.
