Beyond sound bites

At the end of the most recent KershawHealth Board of Trustees meeting, I was approached by a television news reporter with a number of questions.

Noted and passed - Aug. 12, 2013

• Former president George W. Bush, one of the most active chief executives the country's ever had, was diagnosed recently with a blocked artery and had a stent inserted to correct the problem. We've stated before that Bush might not have been a great president but is a fine man, and he has never said critical things about President Obama despite Obama's constant blaming of Bush for the country's ongoing economic problems. We found it interesting that when a reporter asked Obama spokesman Jay Carney if the president had contacted Bush to wish him well after his ...

GOP searches for its missing white voters

Remember how Republican leaders vowed to improve their outreach to minorities after Mitt Romney's demographic disaster in November? Well, not so fast, amigos. A lot of folks in the Grand Old Party's conservative wing prefer to tap another group that let them down: the "missing white voters."

Are you tough enough?

Throw together a ridiculous amount of mud and water, hundreds of live wires, several ice water-filled dumpsters, cargo nets, 15-foot walls, and the product that remains is a sustained trend in America -- one of endurance events. Also known as obstacle races, this adrenaline-fueled sport has exploded in popularity. More than 1 million people this year are expected to enter races of this nature in the United States. Who knew mud, sweat and barbed wire could bring as much allure as it does misery. We are not talking about a fitness trend, but what Running USA calls the "Second Running Boom ...
