Editorial: Blame for closing schools may be misplaced

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.
