Oh Christmas tree, Oh Christmas tree…

One of the reasons I pursued a career in community forestry is because I like trees and people. They both fascinate and amaze me. The latter more so now-a-days that I am working for a municipality. I've been astounded and a bit bewildered at the dismay and disappointment from citizens, co-workers and acquaintances alike regarding this year's Christmas tree at City Hall. Since I am a public servant and feel accountable for my actions as such, please allow me to shed some light on why we have such a unique tree.

Remove risk for wandering children

Where is she?" is the desperate cry of mothers, caretakers of elderly, and home-sitters for disabled. Someone is missing -- not in the house where she is to be. Their loved one went outdoors, alone.

Lifestyle trends

One of the most significant sociological trends of the past couple decades has been the increasing percentage of women who make up college student bodies. At many institutions of higher learning, 60 percent or more of the students are females, reversing the percentages of a generation ago. That, of course, is leading to better opportunities for women here in Kershaw County and across the country. In fact, women make up roughly half of all medical, law and accounting students, three professions that lead to high-paying and influential careers.

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.
