Washington’s anti-S.C. disposition

If you pay attention to the news -- and if you're reading this community newspaper it's likely that you do -- you're probably aware that the federal government just rejected South Carolina's recently-passed "Voter ID" law, which would require voters to present photo identification before casting a ballot in an election.

Partin's letter insightful

Kudos to Councilman Pat Partin for his very thorough and well-written letter in this newspaper. He gave excellent accounting and insight into the reasoning of City Council regarding the proposed construction(s) to take Camden to a new level. The only thing about his letter that I do not understand is why he waited so long to present it. It would have been an even greater help to our understanding had he provided it several months ago. Alas, better late than never.

S.C.'s turn

Now that the Iowa caucuses and the New Hampshire primary are over, the political focus of the nation is going to turn to South Carolina, where the Jan. 21 primary is the next major event in the presidential sweepstakes.

Time to compromise

The Y or no Y debate has become combative. The City has stood fast, probably believing it has public support. The opponents, including me, are just as steadfastly convinced we will win either in a referendum or a lawsuit, or both.

Reader: SCHSL decision sends wrong message

Regarding the S.C. High School League decision concerning the so called "brawl" after the Camden-Dreher football game, the league has the legal authority to assess such penalties since the schools are, by their own action, voluntary members. And I understand the league's objective of trying to emphasize that such conduct is not acceptable and should be dealt with appropriately.

Express Care

One of the problems with the expense of health care is the fact that many people tend to use a hospital's emergency room as their primary care facility, going there with normal ailments such as flu and severe colds. Emergency room care is expensive -- too costly to be used in that way. KershawHealth is no different than other hospitals in that regard, and the decision to "split" the emergency department there is a sound one.

KCSO supports cancer research, constable

In May 2008, Nancy Watts, a constable who works for the Kershaw County Sheriff's Office (KCSO), learned she had breast cancer. For many people, a cancer diagnosis is devastating news. It certainly came as a shock to Watts, who is one of the individuals who is tasked with serving civil papers for the KCSO's civil division. Watts' doctor recommended she undergo a mastectomy. Normally, a mastectomy requires the patient be out of work for eight weeks. In Watts' case, she came back after four weeks.

A broader definition of entrepreneurs

Entrepreneurs are somewhat of a mascot for the U.S. economy -- nothing embodies the American dream more than an entrepreneur. Consequently, we've been trained to think there's a positive correlation between the number of start-ups and the health of the economy. But Daniel Isenberg, professor of entrepreneurship, and Fernando Fabre, president of Endeavor Global, argue otherwise. Real, high impact entrepreneurship comes from "scale-ups" instead. Scale-ups are growing businesses that promote a "long-term entrepreneurship," eventually leading to more innovation and increased economic health. The continued growth of established businesses does more for the economy than a high number of ...
