  • Use old bank for town hall

    Recently, and, it appears, belatedly, the Kershaw Historical Society and other preservation-minded community members mounted an effort to convince municipal authorities to reconsider making the former Bank of Kershaw building into the new town hall.

    While we appreciate that two years of study and planning have gone into this project and that the mayor, town administrator and council members may have become tired of delays and are now eager for real construction to begin, we asked them to pause long enough to deliberate on what might be best for Kershaw.

  • Historical society seeks volunteers

    A historical society exists to help preserve the historical identity of a county, but is this its only function?

    In addition to restoring historical markers and preserving historical sites, these societies also work to unite the community through the use of cultural events, and by offering crucial links to the county’s history.

  • McCantses enjoy Ben Snipes rodeo

    The Ben Snipes rodeo was wonderful again. I couldn’t believe it when we saw cowboys from Lancaster who looked like they weighed 100 pounds climb on a bull and ride.

    Billy Dale loved it. We all had a great time. He still likes the cowgirls.

    The food is great and so is the entertainment.

    You missed it if you didn’t go. I encourage you all to go the next rodeo Ben brings to Lancaster.

    Thanks again, Susan and Ben.
