Keeping free speech alive

I recently posted an article on the Kershaw County Patriots page on Facebook that seems to have stirred up a bit of a controversy. The article was entitled "When is It OK to Shoot a Cop." I asked that anyone who wished to comment on the article read it first. With the exception of myself, no one commented on the article. The page is an open page and all comments are welcome as a way to open a healthy debate. It seems, however, rather than commenting on the article, someone from law enforcement contacted this paper and complained. Why did ...

• Actress Jane Fonda says she's "deeply disappointed that (shopping channel) QVC caved in to insane pressure" and cancelled her recent television appearance. Fonda, as you might recall, straddled a Viet Cong anti-aircraft gun during the Vietnam war; she later charged she'd been tricked into the stunt. But people have long memories. Fonda's conduct went far beyond activism and protest, amounting instead to consorting with the enemy, and she must live with the consequences. If QVC made the decision to cancel her appearance because the company thought she would ultimately hurt business, the network had every right to ...

Ariail for Oct. 13, 2014

October 13, 2014 | | Ariail


Noted and passed - Oct. 13, 2014

• We're seeing some good business and other news here in Kershaw County, showing signs that, perhaps, the community is beginning to climb out of the economic doldrums that have plagued us for too long now. The highlight of the week, of course, was word that Hengst is going through its third expansion, announcing it will invest $8 million into the Steeplechase Spec Building and bring 20 new jobs during the next three years. In the meantime, we've seen new small businesses spring up, or new life bloom in older ones, across the county. There are also still rumors ...

Strategic partnerships -- what are they?

KershawHealth's Strategic Plan, approved by the board of trustees earlier this year, makes it clear that various alliances are essential to the organization's future success in caring for our community. We must recognize that there are 13 not-for-profit and investor-owned hospitals within a 50-mile radius of Kershaw County and that, more specifically, KershawHealth competes with large healthcare systems in the Columbia metropolitan area. An openness to new ideas and new ways of partnering in a rapidly-evolving healthcare environment is the only strategy for success.
