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.

2013 hospital auxiliary golf tournament ‘swings’ into gear

On page 1 of the March 1, 1912 issue of the Camden Chronicle, Mrs. Douglas A. Boykin made a fervent appeal to women of Kershaw County to organize and work for a hospital in Camden: "You mothers! You housewives! You busy women! These are the ones we want to help us. The busy woman is always the woman that accomplishes the most work outside of her home. The woman of leisure only has time to devote to herself."

Local restaurant supports cancer research by 'going pink'

Employees from the Lugoff Captain D's sported pink shirts to show their support of Breast Cancer Research. They are from left to right: Tammy Cantillion, Patricia Blyther, Ashley Whren, Paula Brown and Stephanie Woods. Captain D's says that it is committed to being part of the local community and to supporting causes that mean a great deal to its guests. That is why its company, CD's Midlands, Inc. (a franchisee of seven Captain D's restaurants in South Carolina) will be participating in Breast Cancer Awareness month. During the month of October, the restaurants have pledged to ...

Upset about abuse

Dear Annie: My cousin is a police officer in a neighboring city, and we only see him when the whole family is together. Recently, he was caught on camera beating up a woman he'd pulled over for something. From his statement and the camera footage, it seems the woman got mouthy and he responded physically. It was graphic.

The importance of the chipped bowl

Just as Tink started up the stairs, stepping slowly and carefully as he balanced a bowl and a cup of coffee to keep them from sloshing, I appeared around the corner. I paused, watched, and debated silently as to whether to speak.

‘You helped save my life’

My name is Deidra Nelson. I have been living in Camden for about a year now. I think it's a wonderful town. I was looking forward to the Carolina Downhome Blues Festival this past weekend; I even made arrangements to spend a night at a friend's house so that I could enjoy the festival.

Brain power

It's no secret that American young people are lagging their counterparts in many other countries in academic performance. For several years, we've been bombarded with news stories about the problems kids are facing in a competitive world. Now comes word that it's not only American youths who aren't able to compete, but adults in the workplace, too. And it's disturbing.
