Editorial: $17.2 million

As previewed on today's front page, Kershaw County Council is set to hold a public hearing and take final reading on a potential $17.2 million economic development bond issue. The money -- based on "Plan 4" offered by county staff -- would be used to make improvements at Governor's Hill, Heritage Point and Steeplechase industrial parks. Plan 4 also involves the use of $4 million in county reserve funds.

Editorial: A ‘new’ divide?

For years, most people divided Kershaw County into two pieces, divided by the Wateree River. Camden vs. Lugoff; the West Wateree vs. those living on the east side of the river.

Editorial: Helping others

On today's front page, you'll see stories of at least two student groups helping others in the wake of this month's heavy rainfall and flooding in the Midlands. First, not only did Camden Military Academy students put together and deliver a massive donation of water and other goods for hard-hit folks in Columbia, but they actually helped out some of those in need directly.

Editorial: Almost done

Not long ago, the words "Done deal!" graced our front page, trumpeting the KershawHealth Board of Trustees' unanimous vote to have Chair Karen Eckford sign the finalized lease/purchase and management agreements with Capella Healthcare of Franklin, Tenn., and MUSC Health, the patient care arm of the Medical University of South Carolina.

Editorial: Agnes Slayman

We are disappointed to hear of Agnes Slayman's resignation as superintendent of the Chester County School District (CCSD). Kershaw County School District administrators, teachers, staff and students may remember Slayman from her 20 years here as a high school assistant principal, middle and high school principal and, finally, assistant superintendent for curriculum and instruction. She left the district to become CCSD superintendent in January 2012.

Editorial: Fire Fest

Fire Fest celebrates its 20th anniversary Saturday at the nearly renovated Rhame Arena in downtown Camden. It celebrates this anniversary with much of its traditional fare -- the 9 a.m. parade of fire trucks, ambulances and other emergency vehicles down Broad Street (this year, beginning at Rutledge Street, according to the event's Facebook page); side-by-side burn demonstrations, showing how important residential sprinkler systems can be; the annual Explorers competition; and lots of vendors, food and other fun.

Noted and passed - Sept. 21, 2015

• Congratulations to Dr. Larry Parrott on being honored with a Leadership Legacy bench as part of the city's Leaders Legacy recognition program. Parrott, as noted in Friday's cover story, served as a pathologist at what is now KershawHealth for more than 30 years. He has, for even longer, served the community in a variety of ways, through his church, Bethesda Presbyterian; at Rotary; and by supporting youth sports and activities. As Camden Mayor Tony Scully put it during Tuesday's bench dedication: "This remarkable man, who has shaped this community for the better, has demonstrated by his actions ...

Editorial: DUI laws

Recently, we interviewed Kershaw County Sheriff Jim Matthews about the dichotomy of doing a good job enforcing the state's driving under the influence (DUI) laws, but lamenting how badly those laws are flawed.

Editorial: Public feedback

We notice in today's Yesteryear feature an interesting coincidence: 29 years ago this week, the Kershaw County School Board of School Trustees decided to delay a facilities study until members and district officials could meet with a bond referendum consultant and, possibly hold a meeting to get feedback on the potential projects and funding.
