Off-limits

This playground equipment at Rectory Square is off-limits for now, thanks to an approximately 180-year-old, 80-foot-tall post oak tree that fell it on during the night of May 15 following heavy rains. According to Camden Urban Forester Liz Gilland, it took four days for staff to cut up, haul off and clean up the debris since this picture was taken. "And we have yet to haul away the stump (it weighs over 7,000 pounds our equipment can't lift it -- yikes!)" Gilland said. She said the tree fell due to a combination of saturated soil and a partially decayed ...

Head to the polls

Politically, it's a bit of an unusual year here in Kershaw County and South Carolina. Lieutenant Governor Glenn McConnell is stepping down to become the president of the College of Charleston, and those in line to succeed him say they don't want the thankless and mostly meaningless job. But in the meantime, there are four candidates running for that post in the June Republican primary, so it obviously appeals to somebody. We suspect there is the lingering hope that becoming lieutenant governor is a stepping stone to the governor's office, although it hasn't been so in ...
