Noted and passed - June 13, 2011

* Rightly or wrongly, presidents generally get the credit or the blame for economic conditions in the country, as most voters place responsibility on the chief executive rather than Congress. In that regard, President Obama faces headwinds in his re-election efforts. He also is up against an historical precedent that's surprising: if he wins another term in the White House in November of next year, it will be only the second time in history that three consecutive presidents have won back-to-back terms. The last time it occurred was in 1801-1825, when Thomas Jefferson, James Madison and James Monroe all were ...

Constitutional controversy

The General Assembly will be back at the Statehouse tomorrow to continue work on items that were included in the concurrent resolution extending the session. These items are the budget, gubernatorial vetoes, conference and free conference reports, redistricting, and appointments. This end-of-session resolution is called a Sine Die Resolution because it dictates how and when the General Assembly will conclude the session. To adjourn sine die means to adjourn for an indefinite period. So when we adjourn sine die, the General Assembly does not plan to meet – barring any emergencies – until the constitutionally mandated date of the second Tuesday in ...

Haley v. State House

As we mentioned earlier this week, Gov. Nikki Haley has several solid proposals in her package to streamline state government. The S. C. Supreme Court has ruled that she doesn't have the authority -- it was hardly a clear-cut decision, coming in at 3-2 -- to call the Senate back into session, as she attempted to do, and it now appears that South Carolinians might be in for four more years of contention between the governor and the legislature.

Time has come for new rec center

For years, elected officials and residents have wished for an alternative to Rhame Arena, which has become a shell of what it once was. For years, we have envisioned an active, vibrant recreation center that can become a haven for our youth, an asset for our elderly and a shining light for our city. For years, we have heard much talk but seen little action.

• 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 ...
