Sports complex: opposition or debate?

Thank you for your even-handed coverage of the debate over a proposed city-built sports complex that would be operated by the Columbia YMCA. The headline in Friday's Chronicle-Independent might tend to make someone think I am an opponent of a new sports complex for our city/county. I am not. However, I have worked to secure signatures that call for a referendum on the issue. A binding referendum would settle the dispute and determine the will of the citizens of Camden.

DMES honors veterans with love, respect

On Veterans Day, 11-11-11, Doby's Mill Elementary School second-graders put on a tribute show for the veterans. It was one of the most meaningful, well-done, beautifully executed shows I have ever seen and almost unbelievable to have been done by such young children. There had to be many, many people doing the work to put this together, practice the children and see that all went according to plan, and they are to be greatly thanked for their hard work and dedication and love.

There’s no bench in cross country

Why do people run? Why would anyone want to leave the geniality of a warm bed on a cold morning to spend 30 minutes of breathless agony? Why would someone choose to end a harried day at work with a pointless endeavor like running? They just do. And they do for reasons unbeknownst to many, explicable to others. Delivered to those who sprint, jog, dart, or dash are amazing enhancements sending them out the door three, five, even seven days a week, some asserting never to stray from one sole run. Every runner has their own schedule, own motivation, own ...

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.

Beautiful in a different way

She was not a pretty woman in the days of her youth. Her lips were too thin, her forehead too high and her eyes so round that they seemed to bulge into the lens of the glasses she wore.

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 ...
