This past Tuesday evening candidates for Kershaw County Sheriff, County Council Chair and Kershaw County Treasurer were at Lugoff-Elgin High School to take part in a candidates forum sponsored by the Kershaw County Chamber of Commerce.  Sheriff Jim Matthews telling the audience that his goal is to continue working toward making the Kershaw County Sheriff’s Office one of the premier law enforcement agencies in the Palmetto State.  Challenger David Thomley said he would continue the fight against drugs and wants to work at improving the response time of deputies.  All three candidates for county council chair – Julian Burns, Ben Connell and Gene Hartis said they would work toward bringing new industries and businesses to Kershaw County in an effort to broaden the tax base.  The candidates for treasurer – Jill Catoe and Heather Ives-Dykes talked about their goals for the treasurer’s office.  Catoe pointed to her experience as deputy treasurer and Ives-Dykes said she would implement a five point plan to make sure that folks pay their taxes on time.

The Kershaw County School Board Tuesday evening approved the list of projects to be included in a possible bond referendum this fall.  The total cost of the projects comes to around $130 million. Included in the list is the consolidation of three elementary schools in the North Central area – Baron DeKalb, Mount Pisgah and Bethune Elementary into a new school that would be built next to North Central Middle School.  Board members Ron Blackmon and Louis Clyburn both pushed a proposal to also consolidate Midway Elementary with the other three elementary schools in the North Central zone but after some confusion over motion the board eventually approved the proposal to merge three elementary schools.  Dr. Frank Morgan, school superintendent says the next step is to develop language for the referendum question.  Other projects on the list include a new Camden Elementary as well as new Lugoff and Wateree Elementary schools and renovations for Camden and Lugoff-Elgin high schools.  The projects list was approved with a unanimous vote.
