KH Foundation sets $4 million goal for Centennial Fund

Reflecting back on the KershawHealth Foundation's decision to undertake a fundraising campaign to mark the hospital's 100th year, Mary Ellen Green, chair of the board of directors, noted that "The Centennial Fund has been created to support critical advancements in future years as KershawHealth continues its commitment to being the best community healthcare system in South Carolina. Our goal is ambitious because the need is critical." The goal is to build a fund of $4 million, with $2.5 million presently in the fund and $1.5 million yet to be raised to reach the goal.

‘Portrait of Camden’ exhibit at Camden Archives and Museum

Epsy Peebles smoothed her straight brown hair back from her face and into a bun at the nape of her neck. The reflection in the mirror showed her plain round face. Her skin was still smooth as a schoolgirl's. Her lips were still full and young looking. Her brown eyes searched her reflection carefully. She was getting ready to have her photograph portrait made with Daniel -- for the first time ever. The appointment this afternoon was a milestone for them. They had finally saved up enough money from the farm income to "splurge" on a permanent image of themselves ...

Equine center

When the city of Camden proposed using hospitality tax funds to help construct a new YMCA, the proposal met with a great deal of opposition from many who felt that wouldn't be an appropriate use of the funds. That controversy boiled over for quite awhile and Mayor Jeffrey Graham eventually lost his re-election bid to political newcomer Tony Scully. Now a new proposal for hospitality tax funding has been brought before council, and whether or not members decide to fund it, there can be no argument that it would be a proper use of such money.

Athletic assignments

How I ever had time to each English with the other chores such as essay contests, speech contests, compositions for other personnel, hall duty, nonsensical meetings, debate team, the Beta Club, not to mention the athletic department, I do not know! Earlier, I wrote about being a football coach, never compensated by money or the accoutrements such as jackets, rings or letters.

Editorial: Medical marijuana

Though the legalization of medical marijuana appears to be a dead issue in this session of the General Assembly, we hope lawmakers won't forget about it and that there will be an attempt to revive the issue next year. It is, of course, an emotional matter for many people, and there are those who believe legalizing marijuana for medical purposes will be the first wave of massive use by people who are trying to skirt the law. Both the S.C. State Law Enforcement Division and S.C. Medical Association oppose the bill, with a former president of the ...
