WASHINGTON -- Once again, Hillary Clinton has demonstrated herself to be the classiest person in the room. No wonder she's one of the most revered public figures in America.
I feel compelled to bring to your reader's attention a slight correction regarding the photograph showing the dedication of the Patriot's Landing. The loyalist fort captured by troops commanded by Thomas Sumter was called Cary's Fort. It was located on the west side of the river fronting the old ferry. That ferry was located about one mile south of current highway bridge. The area designated as Patriot's Landing did not exist as a landing until the construction of the first bridge near that point in 1878. There is no historical significance with the spot dating back ...

When former Sen. George McGovern died last week at age 90, there were probably many Kershaw County residents who might have remembered him only as the presidential candidate who got crushed in one of the largest landslides in history, winning only one state plus the District of Columbia against President Richard Nixon in 1972. McGovern's campaign was somewhat dysfunctional -- he fired his vice presidential running mate, Thomas Eagleton, after revelations that Eagleton had been treated for mental disorders -- and never had a chance against a president who was popular at the time and hadn't yet been trapped by ...

During the last week, we have published two reports on KershawHealth. The first, growing out of the hospital's most recent board of trustees meeting, focused on its market share. It is relatively healthy, thanks to KershawHealth's being the only hospital in all of Kershaw County. More people living in the county turn to KershawHealth for emergency care than anywhere else. However, the report -- broadly speaking -- noted a decrease in market share in outpatient services and only slight increases for inpatient services.

Several years ago, my wife and I, along with our youngest son, his wife and their children, attended a Fourth of July celebration in Bath, Maine. Bath is a picturesque little city which only Maine seems capable of providing. It is also a seafaring town, home to the Bath Iron Works, where ships have slid down the ways for close to 200 years.
I was browsing the internet looking at different sites listing historical events of the past 100 years and was surprised to see how much of history had been left off. So many events which have taken place during the past century which have been instrumental in the growth of this country have been left out of our history books and articles of today.
