Local hospitals can be found in large cities and small towns or even in rural areas. It simply refers to hospitals in your locality or hometown. With growth in infrastructure and population, hospitals in small towns are also expanding to be able to deal with the demands of a growing and aging population.

The Memorial Day weekend is approaching and drivers should expect more traffic on the road. Memorial Day is the start of the "100 deadly days of summer." Our fatalities tend to rise during this time because of more vehicles traveling across our state. This year alone in Troop 1 which covers Richland, Lexington, Kershaw, Lee, Sumter and Clarendon counties, our communities have experienced 63 traffic fatalities. These fatalities are the result of speed, alcohol, and occupants not wearing seatbelts, pedestrians and motorcyclists. Memorial Day weekend of 2011 there was one fatality in Troop 1.

There are countless reasons that our system of government in Washington is broken so badly, but there's one concept -- it's in effect in many states, already – that would effect immediate change and would help solve our crisis in government: term limits. Of course it's not a new concept, but limiting people to a particular number of terms, whether in the House of Representatives or the Senate -- would help free many elected officials to make decisions based on what's best for the country rather than on getting re-elected.
