Kershaw County Councilman Sammie Tucker Jr. turned himself in to the Clarendon County Sheriff's Office (CCSO) Wednesday afternoon after learning an arrest warrant had been issued. CCSO deputies then booked Tucker at the Clarendon County Detention Center. A CCSO report listed the charge as "unlawful use or disposal of personal property subject to security interest." A judge later released Tucker on a $10,000 personal recognizance bond, according to information taken from VINELink, a website used to track detainees across the country.

We wrote recently of a change in the way KershawHealth is managing its emergency department, sending seriously threatened patients to one area for immediate, vital care while directing others who are less ill to be treated in a non-emergency system. It's cost-effective, but also provides quality care for both types of patients.

My husband and I moved to Camden eight years ago after falling in love with the many charms that this town has to offer. The history, parks and many cultural activities, coupled with small town ambiance and friendly people, convinced us that Camden would be the perfect community for us to settle and start our family. We now have a 4-year old daughter that we regularly take to local parks, Historic Camden, the Kershaw County Farmers Market, and many of the incredible offerings of the Kershaw County Library and Fine Arts Center. While these are undeniably awesome resources, we yearn ...

Voters here in Kershaw County and across South Carolina were subjected to an endless diatribe of political poison in the days and weeks leading up to Saturday's Republican presidential primary. This endless vitriol is nothing new, of course, as the entire process seems to have degenerated into an endless bout of mud wrestling. If you need evidence that not many people in Washington are concerned about the direction of politics and civility, we'll pass along an item that we discovered not long ago.
