Democrats acting desperately

WASHINGTON -- H.L. Mencken gets a workout in election years when voters are reminded by pundits of the curmudgeon's observation that no one ever went broke underestimating the intelligence of the American public.

Boykin Spaniels

Earlier in the week, we had an opportunity on this page to celebrate one of Kershaw County's premier attractions, the Carolina Cup. And so now, we turn away again from the travails of an often somber world to note another local phenomenon -- the Boykin Spaniel, that hardy but lovable little dog that had its origins right here in Kershaw County.

Carolina Cup

Weather forecasters -- a notoriously inaccurate lot -- did everything they could to dump a bucket of cold water on last Saturday's Carolina Cup, but despite their dire predictions, thousands of people turned out to the Springdale Race Course and enjoyed a terrific afternoon of horse racing and socializing, all topped off by a local horse winning the featured Carolina Cup race. We were reminded once again of all that the event means to this area and how much it burnishes the reputation of Camden.

Clowning Around

The circus came to town for Baron DeKalb Elementary School students. Ms. Farnum's first grade class completed a unit of study about the circus and researched and wrote about circus acts and animals.

Noted and passed - April 14, 2014

• The news that the city of Camden plans to install an elevator at Camden City Hall is quite welcome. It is especially so to the city's disabled citizens who have found it difficult to come to court or attend Camden City Council meetings, both of which take place on the second floor. Many years ago, the city installed a chair-lift system attached to a railing of the building's main stairwell. It hasn't always worked and some people find its appearance a bit daunting. Installing the elevator -- which will also allow employees and visitors to reach offices and ...

Focusing on finding the best healthcare outcomes

Recently, I attended the Congress on Healthcare Leadership presented by the American College of Healthcare Executives, and I was most impressed by one presentation: Building the New Healthcare Delivery System. In particular, I was struck by the fact that healthcare executives from across the country were focused almost exclusively on this new world of healthcare and its impact on how the organizations they lead are designed.

The road diet boon-doggle mistake

The road diet -- what a mistake. Even the mayor admits it could be a mistake. When the mayor was running for office he led me to believe that he was against the Broad Street diet. Two years later, he has flipped his opinion about the diet project. The mayor's vote, along with two of the previous council members, is what placed this mistake in motion. The urgency for the vote was to apply for a grant. A grant is federal tax dollars and not free money as some believe. This type of attitude is one of the reasons our ...
