The concept of term limits peaked and then declined a few years ago, but the basic idea of putting a stopper on the time people can spend making laws is a sound one. The S.C. House of Representatives, in the wake of the Bobby Harrell scandal, is now moving to limit a speaker to no more than five terms, or 10 years. And nationally, voices are beginning to sound alarms which would prevent career politicians from continuing to pull the levers of power for decades.

When I started working in conservation nearly 15 years ago, I was as green as fresh shoots on the smilax vines that grew prominently in the Carolina Bays in Poinsett Electronic Combat Range.

If people in Kershaw County had their druthers, they'd probably prefer that KershawHealth, the facility that grew out of the old Kershaw County Memorial Hospital, would be locally owned. But in a day when consolidation and economies of scale are bywords, it finally became impossible, and KershawHealth trustees voted unanimously Monday night to sell the hospital to a company partnered by Capella Healthcare of Tennessee and the Medical University of South Carolina. A caveat: some might argue with the word "sell," since the transaction is a complicated arrangement, but in essence, that's what it is.
