Animal activist remembered

To say that long-time Kershaw County Humane Society president Judy Thiel was an advocate for the proper treatment and care of animals in Kershaw County is a grave understatement. "What Judy did extended much further than Kershaw," said Thiel's long-time coworker and friend, Sharon Jones. Jones, who is the director of the Walter M.

She put land into a conservation foundation -- she protected trees just as much as she protected puppies and kittens."
