A gift for Camden

With the city of Camden having such a distinguished historical heritage, and with so many residents acutely and proudly aware of that heritage and the value of keeping it alive, we are delighted to see the news that statues of Bernard Baruch and Larry Doby will be commissioned and will be placed on the grounds of the Camden Archives and Museum. The work comes through the generosity of Camden resident John Rainey, who's funding the statues, and sculptor Maria J. Kirby-Smith, who will perform the artwork. Those familiar with Kirby-Smith's exquisite sculpture at the Kershaw County Library will ...

After having been involved in the political and governmental life in South Carolina since 1963, when I accepted a position on the staff of Gov. Donald Russell, I am still constantly amazed at how long awful ideas persist in our State.

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.

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.
