Monday evening KershawHealth trustees approved a motion authorizing the executive committee along with the hospital administration and legal counsel to make day to day decisions regarding the negotiations between KershawHealth and M.U.S.C./Capella healthcare.  In other words the motion approved authorizes the executive committee, the hospital administration and attorneys to proceed with negotiations rather than involving the entire board in all details.   Any final agreement will have to be approved by the entire KershawHealth board.  The KershawHealth executive committee is comprised of board chair Karen Eckford, Dr. Tullie Holmstorm, vice-chair and board member Steve Holliday.

On the night of March 9, 2015 the Kershaw County Sheriff’s Office conducted alcohol compliance checks on 17 locations in Kershaw County. In these operations underage individuals, under the supervision of KCSO deputies, attempt to purchase alcoholic beverages from any establishment that can legally sell alcohol. The purpose of these law enforcement actions is to keep alcoholic beverages out of the hands of young people.

Since 2011 numerous citations have been issued against many different locations and all too frequently to the same location. The “undercover” minor is sent into the store where alcohol is sold and attempts to purchase beer, wine or other beverage that contains alcohol. They are instructed not to lie about their age and when asked by the store clerk or proprietor for ID, they present their own identification which clearly shows them to be underage. There is no attempt to trick a clerk into selling the alcohol.

For the first time in over 4 years, no citations were written to any of the 17 establishments that sold alcoholic beverages. According to Kershaw County Sheriff Jim Matthews, this is the first time this has happened and this is exactly the goal that the sheriff’s office has hoped for.

“Apparently the stores have gotten the message and proprietors are being more vigilant in checking the identification of people to whom they sell alcohol. Our goal is not to write lots of tickets for selling alcohol unlawfully, but rather to keep businesses  from selling to our young people. It is a good thing when we conduct these operations and write no citations,” said Kershaw County Sheriff Jim Matthews. “We will continue these compliance checks and hope that this same outcome becomes the norm and not just an exception.”

On March 6, 2015 Kershaw County Sheriff’s Office deputies arrested Reginald Nigel Hingleton (27) of Columbia and Dorothy Tiwanda Watkins (30) also from Columbia after they passed counterfeit money at the Little Caesars in Lugoff and the Food Lion in Elgin and then attempted to obtain money by fraud at the Food Lion in Lugoff.

During the evening hours of March 6. 2015 Watkins purchased items at the Food Lion in Elgin, SC and paid for them with a counterfeit $50 bill. She and Hingleton then drove to the Food Lion in Lugoff where Hingleton attempted to obtain a refund on the items that were purchased at the Food Lion in Elgin. The manager of the Lugoff Food Lion had been advised of the situation at the Elgin Food Lion and called 911.

Kershaw County Sheriff’s Office deputies responded to the Food Lion in Lugoff and the initial responding deputy observed the vehicle that had been described in the Elgin incident. Upon seeing the marked patrol car, Watkins who was driving the suspect vehicle quickly drove away leaving Hingleton in the Food Lion. The deputy conducted a traffic stop and identified Watkins from the earlier incident in Elgin. The deputies returned to the Lugoff Food Lion and questioned Hingleton who was taken into custody along with Watkins.

Deputies recovered several counterfeit bills, identification belonging to people other than Hingleton and Watkins as well as the items purchased with counterfeit money in Elgin. Deputies also located some containers of fresh, hot food that had been purchased from Little Caesars. One of the deputies went to the Little Caesars located nearby and discovered that Hingleton and Watkins had passed counterfeit currency as payment for their food.

Hingleton and Watkins were charged with breach of trust/obtaining property under false tokens. Watkins was also charged with forgery. Both were transported to the Kershaw County Detention Center and have been released on bond.

KCSO investigators have contacted the US Secret Service and provided them with the information pertaining to these incidents.

Watkins has previous arrests for disorderly conduct, giving false information, shoplifting, simple assault, malicious injury to personal property, breach of trust with fraudulent intent, habitual traffic offender, unlawful neglect of a child, entering premises after warning and breaking into auto/tanks where fuel is stored. Hingleton has previous arrests for urinating in public, driving under suspension, petty larceny, unlawfully carrying a concealed weapon and resisting a public officer.
