I have had the opportunity to experience surgical procedures at two of our area's most prominent hospitals -- Providence and KershawHealth. My first surgery was at Providence, the hospital noted for performing surgical procedures, and my doctor was located in the city of Columbia. My experience at Providence was exceptionally good. The hospital was first class with excellent facilities, professional personnel and an attitude of the patient being the No. 1 priority. Everything went according to plan.

The "swing vote" justice is becoming a rare breed, indeed.
If you were a Carolina lady in the 1850s, you would likely have a copy of the latest and most fashionable cookbook of the times -- The Carolina Housewife. The little book was written by "A Lady of Charleston" and published in 1847. The "Lady" was Sarah Rutledge, daughter of Edward Rutledge, a signer of the Declaration of Independence.
