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.

Race to the starting line: City of Camden

(The following correction ran in the Chronicle-Independent on July 25, 2012: "Camden City Council candidate Peggy Ogburn was misidentified as a former Departmenet of PublicWorks director. Mrs. Ogburn chaired the Clemson Extension Community Development Committee. As such she opened the city's first recycling center in 1990 along with those serving as the county's Clemson Extension agtent and former city public works director. The C-I apologies for any confusion." The online version now reflects an accurate record of Mrs. Ogburn's service.)

City trades legal barbs with CRRC, CCRG

For several months, things have been quiet in the more than year-long controversy over the city of Camden's pursuit of constructing a sports complex. The city purchased property on Campbell Street in March 2011 with the intention of building a sports complex, proposed using hospitality taxes to construct it and began negotiating with the YMCA of Columbia to manage it. The plan met not only with vocal opposition, but legal challenges as well.

Parker spot-on with Rainey column

Kathleen Parker, who lives part of the time in Camden, and I probably don't see eye-to-eye on everything, certainly not in the political arena. That's OK; diversity of views is what makes the world go around for me.
