Complain to THE STATE about circulars

I have received complaints from constituents regarding The State newspaper's delivery of The Extra, which is a circular periodically distributed via door-to-door delivery to the citizens of Kershaw County. The Extra is delivered by couriers who typically throw the circular, contained in a plastic bag, on the driveways of Kershaw County homes and on public rights of way in front of homes. Many times the circulars are not picked up. I am concerned about these complaints and what many citizens consider litter.

Writer not part of 'silent majority'

Mr. Jim Matthews, I will not be part of the silent majority. I loudly and proudly support your effort to increase the police force we crucially need for this community. So, we have a net increase of one deputy per shift -- over the last 27 years? Does this sound reasonable to anyone out there? Considering the increase in duties and area crime, our leaders need to seriously review Sheriff Jim Matthews' budget requests. He is right; so often the ones who support measures are quiet, stifled or intimidated by loud dissenters Mr. Matthews has called called "cave dwellers," citizens against ...

Writer thanks KershawHealth caregivers

The family of Evelyn H. Swygert, would like to thank the dedicated doctors, nurses and other caregivers of the Kershaw Health hospital, who took care of our mother during her recent hospitalization. A special thanks goes to the nurser in the ICU department. They were not only kind and understanding to the family but filled our mother's final days with comfort, compassion and respect. They are a credit to their profession.

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.

Community blessed with volunteer spirit

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.

Writer troubled about DeVos confirmation

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 ...

Political rhetoric can damage our country

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.

Why can't they coordinate road work?

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 ...
