Football brawl

What should have been a celebration of a sturdy football win by Camden High School (CHS) turned into an ugly incident Friday night at Zemp Stadium when a brawl occurred as players went through the handshake line following the game. The incident led to a significant amount of publicity across the state, causing a black eye to CHS and the city itself. While various investigations of the fight continue, including scrutiny by the Camden Police Department for possible criminal conduct, it appears the brawl was triggered by Dreher players.

Reader: SCHSL decision sends wrong message

Regarding the S.C. High School League decision concerning the so called "brawl" after the Camden-Dreher football game, the league has the legal authority to assess such penalties since the schools are, by their own action, voluntary members. And I understand the league's objective of trying to emphasize that such conduct is not acceptable and should be dealt with appropriately.

Express Care

One of the problems with the expense of health care is the fact that many people tend to use a hospital's emergency room as their primary care facility, going there with normal ailments such as flu and severe colds. Emergency room care is expensive -- too costly to be used in that way. KershawHealth is no different than other hospitals in that regard, and the decision to "split" the emergency department there is a sound one.

KCSO supports cancer research, constable

In May 2008, Nancy Watts, a constable who works for the Kershaw County Sheriff's Office (KCSO), learned she had breast cancer. For many people, a cancer diagnosis is devastating news. It certainly came as a shock to Watts, who is one of the individuals who is tasked with serving civil papers for the KCSO's civil division. Watts' doctor recommended she undergo a mastectomy. Normally, a mastectomy requires the patient be out of work for eight weeks. In Watts' case, she came back after four weeks.

A broader definition of entrepreneurs

Entrepreneurs are somewhat of a mascot for the U.S. economy -- nothing embodies the American dream more than an entrepreneur. Consequently, we've been trained to think there's a positive correlation between the number of start-ups and the health of the economy. But Daniel Isenberg, professor of entrepreneurship, and Fernando Fabre, president of Endeavor Global, argue otherwise. Real, high impact entrepreneurship comes from "scale-ups" instead. Scale-ups are growing businesses that promote a "long-term entrepreneurship," eventually leading to more innovation and increased economic health. The continued growth of established businesses does more for the economy than a high number of ...
