I am truly flabbergasted and ashamed. Some of the same people, including educators, who chastised county council for the way they treated students, for not putting students first, and telling them they (council) should be ashamed of themselves, were some of the same people who made a mass exodus during Councilman Bobby Gary's announcement of a "Proclamation for Amari Williams' Got Heart Day" after the millage increase for the school district failed.

My name is Kershaw County. I am located in the state of South Carolina and I possess approximately 740 square miles, and I claim to have approximately 60,000 citizens that live in me. I have a lot to boast about, so much that I cannot begin to tell of them. I am proud of my citizens and I depend on them to make me what I am. I am only as good as my people. That I know!
I tore down the old swing set last weekend, demolished it actually. I unscrewed as many nuts and bolts as I could and then took the saw to it, leaving only the pile of sand which had broken the fall of many a crying or giggling toddler at the base of the sliding board. It was time. The old structure had become a little "shop of horrors," so to speak. There were several rungs missing from the ladder, there were damaged boards everywhere, the swings had become rusty and unreliable. She was tired.
