Core measures ensure quality patient care

Our patients pay KershawHealth an enormous compliment every time they entrust us with their care. Why? Because they expect they will receive excellent clinical care here, no matter what their need – and we work hard every day to ensure they do.

Voter suppression laws (bills) threaten true equality

I am appalled by the number of states across America who have introduced "voter suppression bills." About a dozen states are actively pushing legislation that would make it more difficult for college students, the elderly, disabled, and minorities to vote. It is sad that these state legislators have abandoned a real concern to ensure that all Americans are afforded the right to vote. Instead, these legislators are introducing measures to make the voting process more difficult.

A stone, a leaf, an empty chair

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Much ponderous, chin-stroking analysis has followed the Republican National Convention's un-highlight -- the 10-minute monologue by the erstwhile Dirty Harry/Blondie/Rowdy Yates when Clint Eastwood conversed with an empty chair.

Loss

Loss is a difficult part of life. It's connected to us like our skin. It's unavoidable; it's constant; it's never mistaken in the hearts that feel it. And just as skin reveals time passed, loss leaves a mark on our strength and shakes our very core. It follows no schedule. Loss has neither good nor bad timing, as we are unable to make that judgment. It can be swift and random; it can be slow and methodical. It comes in many forms. Loss can be as impalpable as a dream not reached or as tangible as ...

Supports sports complex, YMCA

I support building the proposed Camden Sports Complex and contracting with the YMCA to operate and manage it for many reasons, some of which benefit me and some because others in Camden would benefit from having a YMCA in the city. My wife and I are Senior Citizens who still happen to be working (as many more of us have to do). Working beyond age 65 means we must be fit and healthy to remain viable employees. Some of the facilities proposed for the new YMCA, including an air-conditioned walking track, aerobic and fitness machines and, we hope soon, an ...

Family describes missing woman, relationship with Grant

Two women close to Adriana Laster hope she is found soon … and have a warning about the man who may be responsible for her disappearance. Her aunt and legal guardian, Dorothy Forston, of Alabama, and Phyllis Horn, the grandmother of Laster's daughter, described the missing woman as a "sweet, little kid" who grew up to be an attentive, if not always present mother. Laster disappeared last September while living with Freddie Grant, 52, who is being held in connection with the disappearance of Columbia teenager Gabrielle "Gabbie" Swainson.

Harpootlian

Democrats in South Carolina have every right to criticize Gov. Nikki Haley. Even from many in her own party, she gets low marks for her governing style, which has tended to alienate many. Of course, some of that alienation has come among members of the Republican-controlled General Assembly who are loathe to cede any additional power to a governor -- any governor -- because it might lessen their authority.
