The first days of ‘real’ school

Thursday was my younger son, Caleb's 11th birthday. Unreal, right? One of our gifts was a new Lego Star Wars bookbag, celebrating his love of Legos, Star Wars and a Lego Star Wars video game he and his brother, Joshua (also 11; he'll be 12 in October), love to play.

‘Newsroom’ shows how it should be

It should come as no surprise to long-time readers that I am absolutely loving Aaron Sorkin's The Newsroom on HBO. In fact, considering some of my latest columns, new readers probably aren't surprised, either.

City council to consider financing for new radios

The city of Camden has until Jan. 1, 2013 -- a little more than four and a half months from now -- to comply with federal mandates concerning emergency communication interoperability. The mandates grew out of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks and Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans where law enforcement and other emergency agencies found it difficult to communicate with each other.

KH may use tech to track hand washing

Washing your hands. It sounds simple, almost trivial to talk about. However, ever since Joseph Lister -- working off the theories of Ignaz Semmelweis and Oliver Wendell Holmes Sr. -- pioneered antiseptic surgery, it's been an important component to keeping patients healthy and alive in hospitals around the world. So important that the very act of hand washing has become something to be tracked at KershawHealth.

What 'Dark Knight' says about us

On the surface, it seems silly to devote a column to deconstructing a superhero movie, even a huge blockbuster like The Dark Knight Rises. What could be more frivolous, after all, than spending $10 to $20 bucks (popcorn and drink included) to see a summer flick?

City puts off surveys for a year

Camden City Council decided to put off launching community surveys for one year, citing the fact that the proposal has not been budgeted for the current fiscal year. The idea to conduct surveys came out of an April 30 "road trip" to Rock Hill. Rock Hill City Council conducts such surveys through an independent firm every three years as part of its strategic planning process.

Blame Limbaugh for uncivil discourse

Twenty years or so ago, I worked at a prominent Columbia-area talk radio station. I worked behind the scenes, pushing buttons and making sure commercials got played when they were supposed to. For a long stretch, I handled the midday shift, from about 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Back then, one of my jobs was airing Rush Limbaugh's titular talk show.

Will new truck route be enforceable by police?

For more than a decade, Camden has been trying to find a way to keep heavy trucks off of Broad Street and on to a truck route. Camden has a truck route and has an ordinance on the books that would enforce its use -- but doesn't currently do so.
