Hate crimes

Mr. Cahn, you stated in Monday's Chronicle-Independent that you want to hold off judgment of George Zimmerman till after a trial. It seems, in my opinion, that you have already tried him. You make comments about what was said over the phone and that you can hear Zimmerman moving and cocking his pistol. Can you to tell which way he was headed or what type of pistol was used by listening to sound over the phone? I have not heard what type of pistol was used; have you?

Get involved in children’s lives

As a society, we must have strong laws and appropriate punishment for the perpetrators of hate crimes against humanity. No free society can function without prison walls. How long will Americans be a land of prosperity when we cannot protect our children?

An embarrassing council member

I am very proud to live and work in Kershaw County. Being part of the business community, my wife and I attend county council meetings from time to time. I feel this to be very important and almost necessary. We benefit by business growth. County council meetings can offer business benefits and we usually come out feeling glad that we attended. These meetings allow us to gain an appreciation of the councilmen and what they do, or may be up against.

Pat Summit: a coaching legend

Pat Summit, the legendary coach of the women's basketball team at the University of Tennessee, has stepped down, months after revealing that she has early-onset dementia. Summit carved out one of the most incredible records of any coach in any sport, finishing her career after 38 years with 1,098 wins and only 208 losses and more championships than anyone can count. We are all left to ponder one inescapable fact: if dementia can strike someone as young (59) and as active as Pat Summit, is there anyone who's immune?

Camden in good company

Cancer screening

We wrote recently of a change in the way KershawHealth is managing its emergency department, sending seriously threatened patients to one area for immediate, vital care while directing others who are less ill to be treated in a non-emergency system. It's cost-effective, but also provides quality care for both types of patients.
