KershawHealth is our hometown hospital

Local hospitals can be found in large cities and small towns or even in rural areas. It simply refers to hospitals in your locality or hometown. With growth in infrastructure and population, hospitals in small towns are also expanding to be able to deal with the demands of a growing and aging population. With this in mind, it's usually not difficult to find a hospital -- especially when there is one in your backyard.

Memorial Day weekend safety

The Memorial Day weekend is approaching and drivers should expect more traffic on the road. Memorial Day is the start of the "100 deadly days of summer." Our fatalities tend to rise during this time because of more vehicles traveling across our state. This year alone in Troop 1 which covers Richland, Lexington, Kershaw, Lee, Sumter and Clarendon counties, our communities have experienced 63 traffic fatalities. These fatalities are the result of speed, alcohol, and occupants not wearing seatbelts, pedestrians and motorcyclists. Memorial Day weekend of 2011 there was one fatality in Troop 1.

Right-wing rage trips itself

I'll say this for the Supreme Court's decision to open the floodgates to big money by independent groups in political campaigns. It will be illuminating and, I am certain, often entertaining to watch the big money trip over itself.

Term limits

There are countless reasons that our system of government in Washington is broken so badly, but there's one concept -- it's in effect in many states, already – that would effect immediate change and would help solve our crisis in government: term limits. Of course it's not a new concept, but limiting people to a particular number of terms, whether in the House of Representatives or the Senate -- would help free many elected officials to make decisions based on what's best for the country rather than on getting re-elected.

Politics and law enforcement don't mix

I, along with most other Kershaw County residents, was surprised and stunned by Kershaw County Council's recent idea to shift control of the Kershaw County Sheriff's Office from the voters to themselves. I thought the idea alone was ridiculous. Then some councilmen raised the bar from ridiculous to ludicrous with explanations that their intent was to "…take the politics out of county law enforcement…" What?! Take the politics out of county law enforcement by having county politicians run it? And make no mistake, whatever is said now about control of the proposed county police department, it would be ...

The CNG

We're glad to see that automakers in the United States are getting serious about producing vehicles that run on compressed natural gas (CNG), a fuel that is readily available in this country and much cheaper than gasoline. It's estimated that the U.S. has more than a 100-year supply of natural gas presently on hand, and prices have been falling, as opposed to the costs of gasoline. And, of course, running vehicles with a native fuel lessens dependence on the Middle East and its volatile politics. As we pointed out recently, we're enthusiastic about the fuel-efficient diesel-powered ...

Camden residents support Graham for city council

I want to voice my support for Jeffrey Graham in his pursuit of a seat upon Camden City Council. I think Jeffrey is a unique candidate with a perspective we need. He is a family man with young children, and because of this I think he can represent the needs of many other young families in the Camden area. While all of the current council members have important and impressive qualities, the direct representation of our younger generations is imperative, and with Walter Long leaving, we do not have such a voice on the council if not for Jeffrey Graham.

Reader supports Reuwer

I am supporting David Reuwer for probate judge in the coming election. In any election, voters must ask a couple of things: does the candidate know what he or she is doing, and does the candidate possess the proper attitude to best serve the people of Kershaw County. Well, Mr. Reuwer is a practicing lawyer and Elgin municipal judge experienced in probate matters including the new, revised probate code. Mr. Reuwer is a hardworking man dedicated to the protection, conservation, and celebration of the historical legacy of Kershaw County. He has a strong need to help others; it seems to ...

Reader: ‘vote no twice’

I see signs appearing throughout the county imploring you to "Vote Yes Twice" regarding the school referenda. If you favor tearing down perfectly good schools and Camden High's football stadium, construction new ones to replace them, to the tune of $130 million plus interest; and if you want to pay higher taxes on everything you buy, then by all means vote yes.

Ten things nobody told you about being married

You've heard that marriage isn't easy, that there are going to be trials, surprises and changes of plans along the way. People also tell you it's a blast and the best decision they've ever made. But did anyone tell you being married is also awkward? And sweaty? Being married is a lot of things, some of which no one tells you about ahead of time. Here's a head's up of a few things you probably haven't heard before.

'The Best of Me' saves Sparks' worst for last

Imagine that someone pulled a drain plug on a majestic mountain lake. At first, you wouldn't notice anything amiss, save for a low gurgle echoing from deep under the water. But as the water line dropped, exposing the soggy shore, your heart would drop, and by the time the lake vanished away, leaving sludge and long-forgotten trash and desperate fish flopping around gasping for life, you'd realize the tragedy before you.
