For several months I have followed the debate about a new YMCA in Camden. To date, however, only City Council and the director of the YMCA in Columbia have formulated a plan to build and operate a new facility here. There are possible alternatives. Therefore, I am proposing the following as a means to accomplish the same objective:

There is little pressure that can rival the heat of a presidential campaign, and Herman Cain isn't doing the greatest job of dealing with the scrutiny aimed at White House hopefuls. Cain has great appeal -- he's a plain-spoken guy who doesn't apologize for his positions, he has a concept that would radically change the country's impossibly complicated tax system and he retains a certain populist position that is playing well with many voters during these turbulent economic times. Cain, a virtual unknown only a few months ago, is running neck-and-neck with Mitt Romney in Republican polls.
Katie Tiller and Madison Hudson teamed for 6-2, 7-5 win at first doubles to give the Camden High girls' tennis team a 4-3 win over visiting Dreher in Thursday's AAA state playoff match contested at the Camden High School Athletic Complex.
WASHINGTON -- Monica Lewinsky is trying to make lemonade out of 16-year-old lemons. Good for her, and good, ultimately, for us.
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.
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.

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.

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.
