New swimming facilities needed

I am concerned about the future of the recreation facilities in Kershaw County. Much has been said and many things have been proposed. The county and the city must work together for a better Kershaw County.

It’s always a good time to say thank you

A few days ago I had the honor of attending a memorial service for Marlene Tolleson, a quiet servant at the Kershaw County Council on Aging. For more than 20 years, she worked tirelessly on behalf of those who needed her most, our seniors. An advocate, a counselor and sometimes firm encourager, the folks she served knew that they had a friend and advocate in Marlene.

Deputies need salary increases

When you compete in something and you hit the bull's-eye square in the middle, you feel on top of your game. Great achievements can happen then. The opposite feeling occurs when your arrow veers way off target and gets stuck in a rut or something. You then have a feeling of discouragement and failure. Failure is a very bad feeling.

A time to think

Maybe it is time to think. Think about the importance of our lives and what we are all bout. Do we do the "same old, same all" or do we interact with who we are and what life is all about and how all this has to do with the creative spirit and the freedom to explore and act upon the validity of ourselves.

Broad Street’s trees

I am constantly hearing that the trees on downtown Broad Street obscure the signs on the stores and for that reason should be cut down and replaced. This has happened entirely too many times, and it would be a matter of time before we repeated the same problem again. My suggestion, following the example of downtown Sumter and downtown Greenville, would be to let the trees grow even higher and remove the bottom branches, thus offering a clear view of the store signs and in the meantime providing the shade and beauty that tall trees offer a city. Have the ...

Be safe this Memorial Day

Memorial Day is one of the biggest holidays that are celebrated in our state. We saw an influx of traffic this weekend due to families traveling for the holiday weekend and an increase in motorcycles traveling back and forth to Myrtle Beach for the annual memorial weekend bike rally. Memorial Day is the start of the 100 deadly days of summer. This is the time that runs from Memorial Day to Labor Day. In the past we have seen an increase in fatalities due to more traffic on the highway. In 2012, we had a total of 217 fatalities during ...

‘A positive difference’

I would like to take a few minutes and write a brief letter suggesting that our community take some time to concentrate on all the good things our hospital has stood for the past 100 years.

A son’s reflection on his mother

When I was a child, it seemed that nothing was fair. In fact, I would say many times that things were not fair.

Enough is enough

I don't want to make a habit of getting publicly involved in issues, but enough is enough. Every time I read the paper or listen to someone talk, it's about how much more money the government or some agency wants to take from me and the rest of Kershaw County.

Medicaid expansion a moral issue

The Republican state legislators in our state should take the lead in expanding Medicaid, the government-run health insurance program. Our governor, Nikki Haley, should do the same.

State needs to meet legal obligations

I was very interested in the issue raised by Camden City Council member Alfred Mae Drakeford at the recent (Kershaw County) Chamber (of Commerce) legislative forum. Ms. Drakeford correctly stated that the state of South Carolina is not providing the legally required level of funding for local governments. I would point out that our state is also falling well short in terms of its legal obligation for the funding of public schools.

Handle with care

This is a particularly precarious time for health care; there are many uncertainties, many worries. The current antagonistic verbiage between members of Kershaw County Council and KershawHealth has added to my concerns about this community's health care future.

Jones’ actions are misguided

Beware residents of Kershaw County. We cannot be passive about what is happening in county council as we absolutely need to keep a hospital that takes care of everybody whether they are capable of paying their bill or not.

At KershawHealth, patients come first

I would like to respond to the recent articles concerning KershawHealth's request for help with our EMS. I have lived all my life in Kershaw County. We have a good community with many caring people. This includes county council, KershawHealth's board of directors, and the leadership and employees at KershawHealth.

Looking for an ‘angel’

On Sunday afternoon (Sept. 7), my friend was driving south of Jefferson Davis Highway. It was raining, with lots of thunder and lightning. When she got past the BP station, a transformer must have exploded. Her car hit the pole. She suffered some bad injuries.

On Aug. 24, 2013, my brother, Alan Robinson, was cruelly and brutally murdered. The week of Aug. 24, 2014, his killer was tried, found guilty and sentenced to life in prison without parole for his crime.
