Group supports complex referendum effort

Let Freedom Ring, even though our focus on national and national security issues, would like to support the Paddy Bell letter to the editor Citizens Won't Be Silenced By Actions, Words of City Leaders dated September 16, 2011 in which she spoke about the procedures that occurred during the City Council meeting on September 13, 2011.

Elected officials at all levels work for the people ...

Noted and passed - Oct. 20, 2014

• Thanks to I-20, two U.S. highways and several state highways, we have a lot of commercial vehicles passing through Kershaw County on a daily basis. While most of those vehicles are likely carrying goods for sale here and elsewhere across the country, there's also a good chance hazardous materials are being trucked through as well. So, it's a good thing Lugoff Fire-Rescue (LF-R) and the Kershaw County Fire Service have joined forces to create a Special Operations Team (SOT) to deal with any "HazMat" accidents that may occur.

This facility absolutely reflects what a 21st century workplace looks like and what many of our students will need to be prepared to enter. I talk a lot about preparing students for their future and not our past. The BMW tour reminded me why this is ...
