Obama and race

Attorney General Eric Holder's recent statement that race plays a part in some Americans' opposition to President Obama's policies has stirred strong reaction from both liberals and conservatives, and reaction has highlighted the fact -- no surprise here -- that blacks and whites often look at issues of race differently. We suspect that Kershaw County would mirror the national opinions of a recent Gallup poll in which people were asked whether this country's criminal justice system is biased against blacks. More than two-thirds of whites said no, while about the same percentage of blacks said yes.

KershawHealth’s core commitment to patient care

There have been recent media reports about hospitals in South Carolina facing cuts in Medicare payments due to rising rates of hospital-acquired infections and hospital readmissions. These reimbursement reductions come as part of a drive by the healthcare community, including the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), to increase patient safety and quality of care. There's nothing wrong with that -- we all should be held accountable. Hospitals across the country are working hard to attack the complex issues involved in care and to institute best practices to improve outcomes.

Noted and passed - July 14, 2014

• For years, the public and the media have made fun of celebrities for mangling The Star-Spangled Banner at sporting and other major events.

As we related on our front page Wednesday, Louisa is a rising seventh-grader at Camden Middle School. She played percussion in the sixth grade band and also plays guitar. She also sings our national anthem. The first time most people heard her do so was at this year's Carolina ...
