Ah, a New Year.
From the time I was 6 to 12 years old, I was in Mother Mayfield Children's Home on Fair Street. We got to go to the Y and do things that we would not have gotten to do.

KershawHealth's Strategic Plan, approved by the board of trustees earlier this year, makes it clear that various alliances are essential to the organization's future success in caring for our community. We must recognize that there are 13 not-for-profit and investor-owned hospitals within a 50-mile radius of Kershaw County and that, more specifically, KershawHealth competes with large healthcare systems in the Columbia metropolitan area.
