Fine -- no points

The state appears on the verge of legitimizing a traffic ticket system that has existed on the gray market for years in many municipalities -- writing tickets and collecting fines while not counting the violations against people's traffic records, thus saving them the higher insurance premiums that often result with speeding violations. A bill in the House of Representatives would allow police to write a warning ticket to speeders who are going less than 10 miles per hour over the limit, with the state and cities sharing the revenue.

A story of praise and thanks

Our news media is so full of negatives, hopelessness and tragedy. This is a story praising the goodness of God through others. On Jan. 12 about 7:30 p.m., my husband came in the den and announced that he wasn't feeling real good. In questioning him all he could tell me was a bad case of indigestion -- no nausea, no pain or no sweating. We live at Lake Wateree next door to Vince (a Methodist minister) and Nancy (a nurse) Halter. I called Nancy, and Charles described his symptoms. Calmly she told him that it could just be ...

Kershaw County is at a crossroads

Several weeks ago, while at the ALPHA center talking with Paul Napper, we discussed the problems his agency and the Sheriff's Office deal with, with regard to substance abuse. We talked about the families in our county that are being destroyed by drug abuse. We talked about the rise in incidents of criminal domestic violence caused, in part, by drugs. We also talked about the dubious distinction Kershaw County has in that we have the highest DUI fatality rate in the State of South Carolina. I brought up the issue of the extreme number of housebreakings and overall stealing ...

Noted and passed - April 14, 2014

• The news that the city of Camden plans to install an elevator at Camden City Hall is quite welcome. It is especially so to the city's disabled citizens who have found it difficult to come to court or attend Camden City Council meetings, both of which take place on the second floor. Many years ago, the city installed a chair-lift system attached to a railing of the building's main stairwell. It hasn't always worked and some people find its appearance a bit daunting. Installing the elevator -- which will also allow employees and visitors to reach offices and ...

Focusing on finding the best healthcare outcomes

Recently, I attended the Congress on Healthcare Leadership presented by the American College of Healthcare Executives, and I was most impressed by one presentation: Building the New Healthcare Delivery System. In particular, I was struck by the fact that healthcare executives from across the country were focused almost exclusively on this new world of healthcare and its impact on how the organizations they lead are designed.

The road diet boon-doggle mistake

The road diet -- what a mistake. Even the mayor admits it could be a mistake. When the mayor was running for office he led me to believe that he was against the Broad Street diet. Two years later, he has flipped his opinion about the diet project. The mayor's vote, along with two of the previous council members, is what placed this mistake in motion. The urgency for the vote was to apply for a grant. A grant is federal tax dollars and not free money as some believe. This type of attitude is one of the reasons our ...
