Kershaw town officials have heard plenty of complaints from homeowners about swimmers traipsing through private property to get to the local pool.

Mayor Wayne Rhodes said the complaints continue because swimmers are entering the gate from an area near the pool building to below the pool on private residential property.
HEATH SPRINGS – Young people regularly sit on a large, black plastic trash can in the L.T. Reeves Park in Heath Springs. They don’t do it to be callous and crude but simply because there’s nowhere else to sit.

Why does the world continue to cater to the ultimate spoiled child?
When a child with homicidal tendencies acts out, he or she is usually put away somewhere safe, for the good of everyone.
What happens when this spoiled child is the renegade, insane leader of a nuclear power? What happens when this monster kills his own, openly and without remorse, just to show the world he can?
Is there any question who I am referring to?
The Van Wyck post office was the subject of a community meeting July 9.
The meeting was scheduled to be held at the post office, but was moved to the community center, due to threatening weather and the large crowd trying to fit into our tiny “village post office.”
It seems that small towns across America are losing the heart of their community as the U.S. Postal Service downsizes, closing or drastically reducing counter service hours.
