Controversy continues at KershawHealth as Scott Ziemke, chairman of the hospital system's board of trustees, resigned his chairmanship earlier this week, saying he had become a distraction and that he didn't want that to affect the performance of KershawHealth and its board. We commend Ziemke on his years of service to the hospital board, a thankless job by almost any measure, and we offer the viewpoint that Ziemke has served skillfully and well, and if he has become a distraction, it's primarily because of Kershaw County Council member Jimmy Jones, whose intemperate -- some would say bombastic -- statements ...

I said this last month, but now I really mean it -- Happy Spring! It's evident spring is here by seeing the hordes of folks scurrying around in the garden section of many of our local stores.

End the lifeline

If you'd like a specific example of a federal program run amok -- and there are too many to count -- you need look no further than Lifeline, which was begun during the Reagan administration to provide free phones to people. It was originally envisioned as a method of subsidizing landline phone service for low-income Americans. But in the way that federal programs seem to always do, it has ballooned beyond all reason, now providing free or reduced-price cell phones to millions of people. From its humble beginnings, the program's annual cost has swelled to $1.6 billion. It has ...

State needs to meet legal obligations

I was very interested in the issue raised by Camden City Council member Alfred Mae Drakeford at the recent (Kershaw County) Chamber (of Commerce) legislative forum. Ms. Drakeford correctly stated that the state of South Carolina is not providing the legally required level of funding for local governments. I would point out that our state is also falling well short in terms of its legal obligation for the funding of public schools.
