Councilman Sammie Tucker Jr. arrested in Clarendon County

Kershaw County Councilman Sammie Tucker Jr. turned himself in to the Clarendon County Sheriff’s Office (CCSO) Wednesday afternoon after learning an arrest warrant had been issued.

KCSO supports cancer research, constable

KCSO supports cancer research, constable

 

In May 2008, Nancy Watts, a constable who works for the Kershaw County Sheriff’s Office (KCSO), learned she had breast cancer. For many people, a cancer diagnosis is devastating news. It certainly came as a shock to Watts, who is one of the individuals who is tasked with serving civil papers for the KCSO’s civil division. Watts’ doctor recommended she undergo a mastectomy. Normally, a mastectomy requires the patient be out of work for eight weeks. In Watts’ case, she came back after four weeks.

A broader definition of entrepreneurs

A broader definition of entrepreneurs

Entrepreneurs are somewhat of a mascot for the U.S. economy -- nothing embodies the American dream more than an entrepreneur. Consequently, we’ve been trained to think there’s a positive correlation between the number of start-ups and the health of the economy. But Daniel Isenberg, professor of entrepreneurship, and Fernando Fabre, president of Endeavor Global, argue otherwise. Real, high impact entrepreneurship comes from “scale-ups” instead.
