Lives in Camden being changed through ‘Power of work’

Each year, the first week of May is Goodwill Week. This week is a time to recognize the people in the community that make Goodwill's work possible and celebrate Goodwill's long history of putting people back to work, which began when Methodist minister Edgar Helms founded Goodwill Industries in Boston in 1902.

Hurricane Hugo

Everyone knows the weather is an acceptable source of discussion. Politics, religion and family, however, are fraught with danger when a person talks or writes. As I was listening to the news and awaiting information about a recent impending storm, my mind wandered back to a number of years ago when Hurricane Hugo was a problem.

Raised to shop better

Tink had been in Los Angeles for a week so that morning before his plane left LAX, it occurred to me that a good wifely thing to do would be to welcome him back to the Rondarosa with a home cooked meal.

Steamboat experiments on the Wateree River, 1869-70

Efforts to improve navigation of the Wateree River along the Kershaw County area of the river dates from just after the Revolutionary War. From 1818 to 1828, South Carolina funded extensive internal improvement projects along most state rivers, including the Wateree/Catawba. Locks and canals were built to facilitate passage through shoals and other impediments to navigation.

What are the General Assembly’s priorities on taxes?

South Carolina is known as a "red state" and a "conservative" state, and so one might be led to believe it's a place where non-"progressive," free-market policies reign. Certainly, South Carolina has a reputation for being a "low tax state." But the reputation is unearned. A brief look at the legislature's record on tax policy -- perhaps the most fundamental free market issue -- reveals a profound disconnect between reputation and reality.

Noted and passed - May 5, 2014

• After months of work by KershawHealth employees, administrators and trustees -- and a lot of speculation by the public -- the KershawHealth Board of Trustees voted a week ago to adopt a new strategic plan it hopes will stem a long-running tide of red ink. The plan does not call for any cutbacks in service, but rather the opposite: new facilities in Elgin and Camden in order to expand and strengthen existing services. Some may be surprised that KershawHealth leaders are willing to move forward to transform the former Burndale Plaza shopping center or that a new Karesh Long Term Care facility ...

Disciplined thinking

Former U.S. Senator Jim DeMint addresses an audience from across South Carolina at the Robert Mills Courthouse during The Buckley School of Public Speaking's recent biannual Disciplined Thinking Seminar. DeMint's topic concerned the centralization of big government. Fourteen graduates of the Buckley School participated in a debate following DeMint's presentation, with the three-day seminar functioning as a question and answer session followed by debate, further talks and a roundtable discussion. The school's founder, the late Reid Buckley, would select an issue interesting to politically-involved persons and then select a relevant speaker.
