  • Hunter deserves his day of honor

    Wade Hunter is what’s right about Kershaw. The Lancaster County small town has its share of positives, and Hunter is a major plus.
    The 81-year-old drew the spotlight at a recent meeting of the Kershaw Town Council.
    Hunter, a 10-year member of council and the town’s mayor pro tem, was honored by his fellow council members, who declared Dec. 11, 2010,  as Wade Hunter Day.
    It could be any day because few days pass in Kershaw that Hunter isn’t doing something positive for his town.

  • Usher a natural in his duties

    Jack Usher did his job with little fanfare, but his work as a 911
    dispatcher with the Lancaster County Sheriff’s Office was outstanding.
    Usher, who first joined the department as a deputy, devoted half his life – 25 years – to law enforcement.
    Skills he learned as a deputy were used in his later years as a 911
    dispatcher at his post in the sheriff’s office.
