Controversy continues at KershawHealth as Scott Ziemke, chairman of the hospital system’s board of trustees, resigned his chairmanship earlier this week, saying he had become a distraction and that he didn’t want that to affect the performance of KershawHealth and its board. We commend Ziemke on his years of service to the hospital board, a thankless job by almost any measure, and we offer the viewpoint that Ziemke has served skillfully and well, and if he has become a distraction, it’s primarily because of Kershaw County Council member Jimmy Jones, whose intemperate -- some would say bombastic -- statements have proven once again that Jones has never met a headline he didn’t like. As an elected councilman, Jones has every right to say whatever he pleases.
