KershawHeath provides outstanding care

Having recently had surgery at KershawHealth, I would like to compliment our hospital and staff. How fortunate we are in Kershaw County to have a facility that provides excellent, compassionate care. What could have been an uncomfortable Thanksgiving Day was actually a pleasant experience thanks to the staff at KershawHealth. Each person I encountered was careful and caring, and each was absolutely committed to the job at hand, and certainly to the patient. As a matter of fact, several friends and family members visiting from Columbia remarked that when they need hospital care, they will come here … and with pride ...

School district should review priorities

As a child I was taught you have certain priorities in life. When you become an adult it still should have a place in your decision-making. The Kershaw County School District's recent vote to spend up to $1.25 million shouldn't even be on the list. As a taxpayer, I think keeping qualified teachers teaching is of more importance.

Land purchase for new district offices 'poor decision'

Why would the local school board vote to spend $1.25 million on property for a new district office when they have the land available at both the former Pine Tree Hill School and Camden Middle School properties? How much more money will the new administrative building cost? Is there some other way this money could be spent on children rather than administrative offices?

Heed voters' message on spending

Voters soundly defeated the 1 percent sales tax increase. Imagine my surprise to read in The State Nov. 28 the backers still want to increase our tax expenses when so many people are having a hard time making ends meet just for normal living expenses. Our unemployment is still very high and is not coming down anytime soon.

Volunteers join couple's mission to feed hungry

In 2005 our dear friends, Tom and Cindy Fussell, owners of the Smokin' and Grillin' Restaurant in Camden, invited our family to take part in a small ministry they started feeding the hungry and homeless. That Thanksgiving Day, along with a small group of "restaurant regulars," we fed around 100 people a traditional Thanksgiving meal.

A bottomless fountain of funding?

A new day in law enforcement

Sheriff-elect James O. Matthews, in the South Carolina Primary on June 8, 2010, changed the manner in which political and public business is conducted in Kershaw County. Mr. David Thomley was the county's power broker's choice for the next sheriff of Kershaw County. The odds in those circles were even that he would coast to an easy primary victory, and would easily prevail in the general election. After all, that was the way it had always been. The other Republican candidate was "not from around." If there was a way not to conduct a political campaign Mr. Thomley ...

True treasure

I read with great interest the recent article about local resident and collector Ross Beard and the personal gift to him of information belonging to the late David "Carbine" Williams. I want to share with the readers what other treasures exist thanks to Mr. Beard. My son and I have been fortunate enough to have seen the "tip of the iceberg" of the personal collection belonging to Mr.Beard.

Always proud to call Kershaw County home

Running for Governor of South Carolina was an honor and a privilege, and I learned many things during my more than one year journey. Perhaps most importantly, I learned how much I have to give thanks for. And so I want to pause and say a big thank you to the people of Kershaw County. Thank you for the tremendous support you gave in this endeavor. The outpouring of help from our small community was unbelievable. You were so willing to lend your financial support, political support, votes, and incredible encouragement. We had the highest voter percentage turnout of any ...

Target a valued supporter of animal shelter

I just wanted to express my deepest appreciation for Target Distribution Center in Lugoff for their continuing support of the Walter M. Crowe Animal Shelter. It is becoming all too rare these days to find a company that goes to such lengths to help. Walter Crowe Animal Shelter is honored to receive these donations. Not only does Target affect our community by employment, but also by donating thousands of dollars worth of food and supplies yearly. I hope others see the hard work and concerns for our county animals that Target shows. Under Target's fine management, the Walter Crowe ...

Richland School District Two uses dollars wisely

While the Kershaw County School District persistently attempts to squeeze every last dime they can muster from families who struggle to pay their bills, our neighbors in Richland County are getting tax breaks from their local school district.
