Salkehatchie service

For a week, in temperatures exceeding 100 degrees, a team from the Salkehatchie Summer Service worked to physically improve the homes of needy families in Clarendon County. With hammers and saws a group of 75 high school and college youth volunteers worked to improve the living conditions of 10 homes. Leading a team was Mayor Jeffrey Graham of Camden. Salkehatchie Summer Service is a program of the South Carolina Conference Board of Global Ministries and consists of a number of work camps for United Methodist Youth in South Carolina. Over 50 camps were established this year from May to August ...

Put hospitality tax toward arena renovation

Not so fast, Mayor Graham and city council. Let's talk tourism. The National Steeplechase Museum is sponsoring a new antiques fair at Rhame Arena in October. The arena is downtown with lots of parking and extremely convenient to the interstate. Think about it -- if council had its way, the arena would have been torn down by now and taxpayers would be spending $6 to $8 million on a new YMCA on the Mather Academy property. Can we house an antiques fair at the YMCA? Can we hold the annual Firefest event at the YMCA?

It's all a matter of perspective...

We love Camden. After moving here in 1978, Camden has become "our hometown." When traveling here or abroad and asked where we are from, with a note of pride, Camden, South Carolina, is our answer. My office is in the city. Our home is in the county. Having said that, when we read about the antics of the mayor and his city manager sidekick each week in the paper, we breathe a deep sigh. From one perspective, we're not concerned. It's not our tax money they are wasting -- we live in the county. And, when we drive by ...

• The news that the city of Camden plans to install an elevator at Camden City Hall is quite welcome. It is especially so to the city's disabled citizens who have found it difficult to come to court or attend Camden City Council meetings, both of which take place on the second floor. Many years ago, the city installed a chair-lift system attached to a railing of the building's main stairwell. It hasn't always worked and some people find its appearance a bit daunting. Installing the elevator -- which will also allow employees and visitors to reach offices and ...

Focusing on finding the best healthcare outcomes

Recently, I attended the Congress on Healthcare Leadership presented by the American College of Healthcare Executives, and I was most impressed by one presentation: Building the New Healthcare Delivery System. In particular, I was struck by the fact that healthcare executives from across the country were focused almost exclusively on this new world of healthcare and its impact on how the organizations they lead are designed.

Beautiful in a different way

She was not a pretty woman in the days of her youth. Her lips were too thin, her forehead too high and her eyes so round that they seemed to bulge into the lens of the glasses she wore.

The road diet boon-doggle mistake

The road diet -- what a mistake. Even the mayor admits it could be a mistake. When the mayor was running for office he led me to believe that he was against the Broad Street diet. Two years later, he has flipped his opinion about the diet project. The mayor's vote, along with two of the previous council members, is what placed this mistake in motion. The urgency for the vote was to apply for a grant. A grant is federal tax dollars and not free money as some believe. This type of attitude is one of the reasons our ...
