  • Kershaw employees to get new insurance coverage

    KERSHAW – The town of Kershaw is in the market for a new heath care provider.
    Town Administrator Tony Starnes told council members Thursday that the town’s current provider, S.C. Local Government Assurance Group (LGAG), is dissolving in June.
    LGAG is run by the Municipal Association of South Carolina.
    Kershaw has participated in LGAG for several years. But that group’s dwindling membership has lead to its end, Starnes said.

    John Howard jokes that he’ll probably never have to exercise the duties of his newly elected position.
    Howard, who has served on Lancaster City Council since 1982, was elected mayor pro tempore at Tuesday’s meeting. He will assume mayoral duties in Mayor Joe Shaw’s absence.
    But that’s the catch – Shaw is hardly absent.
    Shaw said he’s missed just two council meetings in the nearly 30 years he’s been mayor, and Howard is quite aware of that.

  • Rollings a strong advocate for vets

    Lancaster County veterans lost a true ally earlier this month when George Rollings died after a courageous battle with cancer.
    Rollings served as the Lancaster County Veterans Affairs Officer from 1988 to 1995. He followed on the heels of the late Ward Faulkenberry, so he had some big shoes to fill, but he handled his duties well.
    Even after serving his time with the VA office in Lancaster County, Rollings was a frequent visitor to the office as he wanted to help in any way he could. When his time was up in leading the VA office, he stayed active.
