It will be interesting to see what finally happens, but we'll offer a tip of the hat to council members for proceeding with the demolition.

New KH ambulances extend EMS reach

Kershaw County residents may have noticed some new, bright blue and white KershawHealth EMS ambulances around the county recently.

Healthcare.gov

The website rollout of the Affordable Care Act, popularly known as Obamacare, is almost a parody of all that is wrong with government and the way it functions in too many cases. We're not referring here to the bill itself; certainly there are those in Kershaw County who think the concept of Obamacare is a wonderful thing and there are others who see it as a poorly conceived, overly expensive plan that the country can't afford.
