Mosquito dunks available to residents, business owners

In an effort to help reduce the mosquito population, Kershaw County is offering free Mosquito Dunks to all county households and businesses. Mosquito Dunks are biological control discs which are deployed in standing water. One Mosquito Dunk treats 100 square feet of water surface and can be broken into several portions to treat multiple trouble spots. Each environmentally safe, nontoxic disc works up to 30 days and kills mosquitoes before they are old enough to bite.

Resident unhappy with The State newspaper

As I drive through my neighborhood in north Camden and other areas around the city, I find plastic bags with The State newspaper advertising in them lying on the open road, in driveways and on the side of the roads.

Teal: Memorable sounds

Last month, our column dealt with a sound from the late 1860s in Kershaw County, the sound of the auctioneer's gavel at a tax or bankruptcy sale as he hammered it down and said "sold" for a piece of county property. It was an unforgettable sound, especially if it were your property being sold.
