The West Wateree Playground Steering Committee officially “deeded” the new Kershaw County West Complex playground to the county Tuesday night. The “transfer” took place during Kershaw County Council’s meeting as part of a public presentation by co-chairs Laurey Carpenter and Elgin Mayor Melissa Emmons. Kershaw County Administrator Vic Carpenter introduced the presenters, jokingly noting this was the first time he had referred to his wife “esteemed,” which he did in introducing the committee as an esteemed group of citizens.
