WASHINGTON -- As the government health care website chugs along, the Obama administration has initiated a counter-initiative to combat Republican naysaying -- and its weapons are of superior grade.
During a turbulent year at KershawHealth, one theme has been consistent: that patient care has not deteriorated and that the hospital's staff has continued to provide high-level medical services and compassionate care for patients. That's no doubt been made more difficult by the turmoil surrounding the facility's top management and board.

"We are Camden, a place surrounded by history. Long a home of Native Americans, we were founded not long after Carolina was separated into North and South. Here, King Haigler, the Catawba chief, worked for peace among natives and colonists along the banks of the Wateree. Here, Patriots suffered one of the worst defeats in the Revolutionary War. Yet, from this place the tide of war would turn and ultimately lead to victory for a fledgling nation built on ideals of equality, freedom, and hope."

Sixth grade students at Camden Middle School (CMS) recently celebrated Mummy Day, a culmination of a unit of study on Ancient Egypt. During the school day, students traveled to four stations where they participated in cross curriculum activities.
