Camden can be proud of many assets, but the one with which I am most impressed is the caliber of care available at KershawHealth Center. The experience that I had during my 21 days total in two visits has been most appreciated. It was a wonderful discovery to learn of the expertise of the entire staff. But even with the extremely qualified doctors and nurses, the compassion from everyone including the hourly paid employees went above and beyond the usual job description required.
I have not read the entire article nor heard all of the accusations being hurled between former Sheriff McCaskill and Sheriff Matthews. I don't need nor want to. This has all the makings of a good cat fight between two high school girls who are pulling hair and trying to claw each other's eyes out. You would hope we've all grown since then.

According to the Merriam-Webster Dictionary, the definition of "disheartening" is as follows: transient verb: "to cause to lose spirit or morale." In a recent city council session, Mayor (Jeffrey) Graham claimed that Councilman Polk's continuous demand for answers regarding the YMCA project were "disheartening." I beg to differ with Mayor Graham's statement, as I do not feel that this exchange quite fits into the above-stated definition, particularly since we are talking about millions of taxpayers' dollars on what many feel to be an unnecessary project -- particularly in this poor economy. I feel that it is the peoples' right ...
Business leaders from across the United States -- ranging from Wall Street monarchs to small-town family business owners -- barraged Congress earlier this week with the same message that many Americans would like to send: quit arguing and get something done about the debt ceiling and then the long-term fiscal discipline of this country. News reports indicate that a concerted effort from business people across the spectrum was aimed at Washington -- ironically, much of it toward Republican lawmakers who have benefited from business contributions in the past.

Recently, I was listening to a talk radio host railing about how public schools "no longer teach values." This issue seems to be a mantra of sorts for some folks in the media, many of whom I suspect haven't been anywhere near a public school in years. As someone who is in public schools every day, I can't for the life of me figure out what this view is based on. I know it's not based on reality.
It is each of the many Easters of my life that I remember more clearly than any other holiday. Christmases blur together with only a few standing out in my memory such as the one when it snowed all day, the year I lost my voice completely, and the two times that I wasn't home – one working in Washington, D.C. and another in London.

** Thomas Ravenel, the former state treasurer who served prison time for cocaine distribution, now stars in a reality television show called "Southern Charm." Ravenel stumbles through the show in a haze of alcohol and bad judgment. He and his girlfriend, who's 30 years his junior, recently had a baby in Florida. Ravenel says he intends to revive his political career by running for the U. S. Senate from the Palmetto State. The guys in Vegas would probably lay some long odds on his chances for success.
