As a public citizen, I take offense at the manner in which the business of Camden is being conducted.

I stopped by the Farmer's Market on Memorial Day weekend, and I ran into a neighbor who said something to me about how it must be nice in the summer when things slow down.

Getting ready for a new school year is a monumental and complex task.

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.
