2011: the year in review (Part I)
New sheriff, plane crash, crime and 'YMCA'
Placeholder Image
A review of this newspaper’s top headlines during 2011 find that most focused on four subjects: new Kershaw County Sheriff Jim Matthews; politics, in terms of new elected and appointed officials; crime; and the city of Camden’s sports complex/YMCA controversy. For all intents and purposes, there was no getting away from these stories. Thankfully, along the way, there were other stories -- some which brightened your day, others that tugged at the heartstrings.
