South Carolina is now one of 16 states which don't ban sending text messages while driving. In recent years, more and more states have prohibited the dangerous practice -- 13 since the beginning of last year. It's time for the Palmetto State to step forward and join what is a common-sense practice by banning texting while behind the wheel. Republicans who control the General Assembly will sometimes say they don't want to add any more government regulations, but a ban on texting makes just as much sense as a speed limit or a law to prevent passing on ...
On Sept. 15, I had the misfortune of falling in a parking lot. I tripped over some broken pavement. I damaged both knees, knocked my front tooth out (partially, which required a root canal), busted my nose, injured my right hand which required stitches, and bruised my arm. I was bleeding profusely from my nose and hand. Two ladies came to my aid. They called an ambulance. We waited 25 minutes for its arrival. Then a man came up to us and demanded they move me out of his way. He wanted me moved immediately. "This woman may have broken ...

WASHINGTON -- First-term first ladies are often shadows to their more-important husbands, dabbling in lite fare to avoid criticism and picking safe projects to shield them and their families from the inevitable slings and arrows.
Many extraordinary people offer visionary ideas, especially here. "Wouldn't it be great if we had a river rafting business on the Wateree?" "Wouldn't it be great if we had a downtown boutique hotel?" "Wouldn't it be great if we had a Bluegrass Festival the week of the Colonial Cup?" "Wouldn't it be great if we had a cottage development, or better yet, a new Kershaw County library on the former Mather property?" "And another restaurant or two!" The answer is predictably, "Yes, of course yes! Thank you for your great ideas," followed by necessary questions: "Where ...
During the open meetings of all of our public bodies, there is provided a period for public comments. This period is part of the meeting agenda and is, presumably, included in the meeting's minutes. Therefore, these comments become part of the public record. This period is set aside for anyone wanting to speak about matters of concern, as long as the comments are about public issues (not to include the promotion of a private business and not about personal issues). Although the public comment period is not a period of debate, it provides private citizens an opportunity to let ...

During the last week, we have published two reports on KershawHealth. The first, growing out of the hospital's most recent board of trustees meeting, focused on its market share. It is relatively healthy, thanks to KershawHealth's being the only hospital in all of Kershaw County. More people living in the county turn to KershawHealth for emergency care than anywhere else. However, the report -- broadly speaking -- noted a decrease in market share in outpatient services and only slight increases for inpatient services.
