Tradeoffs and payoffs:

Washington voters will be asked in November to lower school class sizes, following a pathway forged by Florida voters in 2002. The push comes in the midst of education funding chaos in Washington, which currently has the fourth largest average class sizes in the country.

Criteria for addiction assessment

Many of us picture addicts as druggies in dark alleyways, and that kind of stereotyping is exactly why the American Psychiatric Association's (APA) released its latest revisions to the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-V) this year. The DSM-V is the universal manual for diagnosing mental and behavioral health issues, and this newest revision eliminates the addiction categories and replaces it with a new category for substance use related disorders.

Aren't they grand

Most grandparenting research looks at grandparents who live with their grandchildren or the frail elderly who live in long-term care or assisted settings. That misses most of the 64 million-plus grandparents, including a large group of "midlife" grandparents as young as 40 years old, according to a portrait of grandparenting just released by Bowling Green State University.

Lowcountry board members show guts

Three school board members in the Lowcountry took a courageous step recently when they refused to attend an executive session they felt was illegal.

September 08, 2014 | By Bill Rogers S.C. Press Association Executive Director | Columns


Noted and passed - Sept. 8, 2014

• On the opposite page, you will see a column from S.C. Press Association (SCPA) Executive Director Bill Rogers on how two Lowcountry school board members left a meeting early and another one decided to not attend at all because of what they felt was an improper and possibly illegal executive session to discuss proposals to renovate an old school into district offices. We applaud those Jasper County school board members as well. However, we are also concerned with other recent S.C. Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) violations.

Construction and changes benefit customer satisfaction

In general, these columns are devoted to broad topics like the changing environment of healthcare or our recent Core Measures success and what that means to patient quality and safety. These are matters that can apply to hospitals in virtually any community, and are certainly excellent choices for discussion. However, this time, I'd like to address something anyone who has visited the Medical Center in Camden recently is certain to have noticed -- the renovations taking place, particularly in the emergency room entrance and the main lobby. They're bringing big changes to the hospital, inside and out.
