War on cancer

The war on cancer, begun with so much optimism several decades ago, has not proven to be as successful as scientists and physicians had hoped. Though there have certainly been breakthroughs, especially in the field of early diagnosis, cures for many forms of cancer have remained elusive. And the hope of eliminating the dread disease altogether isn't any more a reality today than it was long ago.

Reader thinks firearms ordinance response to 'select few'

Kershaw County Council is making an attempt by backdoor rulings to attempt to eliminate hunting by prohibiting discharge of firearms within 300 yards of a residence, church, or school. There are very few places where you can go and not be within 300 yards of a prohibited structure. The place I have set up is within 300 yards, but I am able to shoot away from the house. If I try to move 300 yards, I may not be able to use the same target, which is located away from the structure.

Safe Picnics

"There are always ants at a picnic." You can see ants and avoid them, but it's not possible to see, taste or smell dangerous bacteria that can cause illness if food is mishandled. Bacteria grow and multiply rapidly in the danger zone between 40 ºF and 140 ºF. Food transported without an adequate ice source or left out in the sun at a picnic won't stay safe for long. Family and friends who eat mishandled food may get the flu-like symptoms caused by foodborne illness.

Noted and passed - July 28, 2014

• Friday's report that Amtrak is going to spend the next several months refurbishing Camden's passenger rail station off West DeKalb Street is welcome news. Built in 1937, it has shown its age for decades and never more so than now with holes in the platform's canopy, rotting timbers and other problems that make it a less than desirable place to stop. Amtrak says their No. 1 priority is making the facility Americans with Disabilities Act compliant -- and that's a very good thing -- from the parking lot to the station and onto the platform and train. But ...
