We're glad to see law enforcement officers, especially state troopers, blanketing Kershaw County roadways this week in an effort to help stem a disturbing trend in traffic-related deaths this year. From today through Saturday, troopers will saturate the area, and they will be assisted by cooperating officers from the Camden Police Department, Kershaw County Sheriff's Office and Elgin Police Department.
To those kind folks in Camden who so generously paid tribute to "Jacky" James and for the generosity shown in giving generously toward a dog rescue in Chesapeake (City, Md., Paws for Life). I have been sent a photo of a lovely looking male dog which has been saved from death row and been adopted by some kind person.
