Editorial: Truck route work

We're glad to know construction to remake certain roads in and around Camden into an enforceable truck route will get underway Monday.

Editorial: Blame for closing schools may be misplaced

After reading today's coverage of this week's Kershaw County Board of Trustees meeting, one could easily get the sense of an "us versus them" mentality between North Central area parents and trustees, not to mention among some trustees themselves.

Editorial: Good news

This may sounds odd in this day and age of 24/7 news cycles dependent on screaming headlines about the worst mankind has to offer, but we prefer to report good news whenever we can.

Editorial: ‘A great year’

Listening to Kershaw County Economic Development Director Peggy McLean at Tuesday's Kershaw County Council meeting, as recounted in one of today's front page stories, confirmed our happy suspicions: 2015 was a great year, as McLean put it, for Kershaw County from an economic development standpoint.

Editorial: Carolina sports

There is no better time to be a Carolina sports fan than now. The Carolina Panthers are on their way to the Super Bowl and, depending on what you read, a 4- to 10-point favorite to win it all. (Here in our offices, we're expecting a Panthers blowout over the Denver Broncos.)

Editorial: Tuition-free

The idea any currently enrolled Kershaw County high school student with a C or better average when they graduate -- almost any 9th through 12th grader -- will be able to go to Central Carolina Technical College (CCTC) completely tuition-free is amazing news.

Editorial: KH layoffs

Today's news of KershawHealth's decision to lay off 26 employees is unwelcome, but understandable news. Despite Capella and MUSC Health's recent lease/purchase of the hospital and their agreement to invest some $55 million into the healthcare operation during the next 10 years, some tightening of the belt was likely inevitable.

Editorial: A real race

Like many of you, we are not greatly enamored with the candidates for president gracing our television and computer screens this year. With all the bombast assailing us, we are quite grateful for the more pleasant campaigns right here at home for the special election to fill the District 1 seat on Kershaw County Council.
