A few items from the grab bag

This is one of those weeks where I don't have any one thing in particular to write about. That is due in part, at least, to the fact that I was sick most of last week with a touch of bronchitis. What fun.

Ziemke steps back from KH board chairmanship

Saying he no longer wanted to be "a distraction," Scott Ziemke announced at the beginning of Monday's KershawHealth Board of Trustees meeting that he was stepping back from his role as the board's chairman. He nominated Trustee Paul Napper, executive director of The ALPHA Center, to be his replacement. Trustees voted unanimously to elect Napper their chairman, with two abstentions: Napper as the nominee; and Trustee Dr. Tallulah Holmstrom, who objected not to Napper, but to the process. Kershaw County Council appointed Napper in 2012; he began serving in October.

‘You know nothing, John King’

In George R.R. Martin's fantasy series "A Song of Ice and Fire," a Wildling woman named Ygritte often tells one of the main characters "You know nothing, Jon Snow." She says it because Jon, a member of the Nightwatch guard, tends to jump to conclusions about her people based on the stories he's heard back in his home territory. Jon's mistakes are honest ones: he grew up hearing those stories, and it's hard to shake your upbringing. At least Jon's trying.

‘People really want change’

It's official: State Sen. Vincent Sheheen, of Camden, is launching his second campaign in three years to become South Carolina's next governor. Sheheen, a Democrat, ran in 2010 against current Republican Gov. Nikki Haley, losing by only four percentage points. The official announcement came Wednesday, the day before "City of Camden Day at the South Carolina State House," during which he received the key of the city from Mayor Tony Scully. In return, Sheheen read a joint proclamation marking "City of Camden Day" in the Senate chamber as did State Rep. Laurie Slade Funderburk in the House chamber.

FOX News case one to watch

Long-time readers can probably guess that I am not a fan of FOX News. Their entire idea of "fair and balanced" is ludicrous -- as would, admittedly, be such a claim from any of the cable news networks.

Books offer real, alternate histories

Two books recently transported me to the past, one real, the other not. Both featured late President Richard Nixon, one prominently, the other not so much. They provided me with food for thought … of where we have been, where we are now and where we could be.
