On Jan. 1, we lost our son, Matthew Boland, in a tragic car accident. Matt was a wonderful son, a loving husband and a doting father to his daughter, Charlotte. We continue every day to remember him and cherish the many memories that we created with him.
The month of February is Black History Month. It's a remembrance of important people and events in the history of African-Americans. Since 1976 it is celebrated annually in the United States and Canada.
As the director of this United Way, I see firsthand the incredible volunteer spirit and care so many have for our community. Rural counties have many challenges that face us and often limited resources as well. Kershaw County is unique in that we have a perfect storm but not in a bad way. Rather our perfect storm has come together in ways that make us better and stronger.
As a Kershaw resident who has had over 25 years of experience as a teacher and administrator of independent (private) schools in the United states as well as being head of the American School in El Salvador, I am troubled by the vote of our two South Carolina senators for (Betsy) DeVos as Secretary of Education. Anyone familiar with the inequitable and painfully inadequate educational environment and opportunities of the students in rural areas of South Carolina and especially down the I-95 Corridor (known as the Corridor of Shame) is aware that the vote for Betsy DeVos was a vote ...
This weekend The Annual Attic Sale beneﬁtting the Community Medical Clinic of Kershaw County was held. Thanks to the hard work of our community $13,000 was raised to provide medical treatment and wellness education for those who have no insurance and cannot afford care.

Americans celebrate the third Monday in January to honor Martin Luther King Jr.'s birthday.
I pray regularly for our leaders to catch up with the 21st century, and for President-Elect Donald Trump not to follow some of the paths of Franklin D. Roosevelt.
I wish the city, county or state would get together on painting and gouging our streets. They are painting white lines and gouging the streets in so many ways and places. Some streets are done with the white line and the gouge two feet from the edge of the road. Another street is with the white line and the gouge are on the edge of the road. Some have the white line two feet from the edge and the gouge on the edge. This is in my opinion the best way. Some have the gouge two feet in and the ...
In 1796, George Washington released his famous Farewell Address that admonished the citizens of the infant America of four primary things, but his arguably most famous warning is the one regarding the divisiveness of political parties, which he feared would incite internal conflicts, which is exactly what this election has caused.
Thanks to a huge effort by our community, the Fine Arts Center of Kershaw County's 20th Annual Carolina Downhome Blues Festival was an enormous success. I would like to express appreciation to our supporters, sponsors and patrons for making the festival so special, even in the face of the difficulties placed upon us by Hurricane Matthew. We are so fortunate to live among people who display great warmth and generosity, not only to each other, but toward visitors and guests.
This past month I have realized just what an extraordinary effort is required to put on a major event. The Friends of the Kershaw County Library's annual book sale occurred this past two weeks. It would not have been the success it was without the contributions of a number of people and entities. We made thousands of dollars which will go to providing needed services for which the Kershaw County Library's budget simply does not allow. In particular, I want to thank:
