Editorial: Water buffers

We were glad to see the Kershaw County Planning and Zoning Commission vote to keep existing buffer zones between buildings and waterways at their present size rather than reduce them. The matter came up for discussion at the request of Commissioner J. Henry Walker. After hearing evidence and comments from several people, Walker joined the other four commissioners in voting unanimously to keep the buffers in place. That's a boost for maintaining water quality, especially at Lake Wateree.

But now, on hiatus while NBC investigates claims he made that appear not to be true, Williams' future is uncertain.
