Noted and passed - Oct. 14, 2013

• Technology is wonderful, but there are a few things in the world that should remain the way they've always been. One is a gondola ride on the canals of Venice, Italy, but it appears that, too, is giving in to modernity. GPS will be introduced, along with an electronic traffic control system. In fairness, there have been severe accidents lately in which gondolas have been hit by larger boats, but this change makes us a bit wistful.

KershawHealth impacts people’s lives every day

What a difference a week can make. That point was driven home to me by three stories of care provided by KershawHealth during the middle of September. In the midst of all the discussion about healthcare and budgets, leadership and mission, it's easy to overlook the impact KershawHealth has on people's lives every single day. These three stories put that in perspective.

Go ‘Noles, not Redskins

WASHINGTON -- As a fan of tradition, my knee-jerk reaction to the Redskins controversy -- should the name be changed out of respect for offended Native Americans? -- was, well, knee-jerk.

Local, but honest, smart hospital

I read a letter Wednesday from an Elgin resident in favor of KershawHealth staying local and not being purchased by a Charlotte-based company. I agree it would be best to have a local hospital, but her last statement "the KershawHealth system needs to stay exactly as it is" shows many people still don't know how much money they have squandered on upper management salaries and unnecessary property investments. A local hospital is good, but an honest and smart local hospital is better.

‘Equine’ part of marketing equation

Having been involved in the equine activities in Camden since 1952, I read with great interest and disappointment Martin Cahn's article on the front page of the Sept. 20 Chronicle-Independent entitled "Arnett Muldrow Kickoff." The article covered a meeting of Camden citizens and the representatives of the marketing company that has been hired by the city to market Camden. I am extremely enthusiastic about the project. It is something Camden has needed for a long time. My disappointment: only once did the words horse, equine or equestrian appear in connection with Camden.
