Citizens paying for services they don’t receive

I have lived in Kershaw County all of my life. I pay taxes just like all the citizens in this county. Taxes are necessary in order to meet the county's obligations, like school bonds and other things that the county is responsible for. The problem I have is with the things we pay for that are not our responsibility.

KC Library to host ‘Kindie Rock’ Monday at the FAC

"Kindie rock" may not be the most commonly known type of music, but that might be changing. Defined by its use of themes for children younger than 10, but in a style that can be enjoyed by parents as well people of all ages, "kindie rock" is one of the fastest growing segments of the music industry. Kershaw County residents will get a chance to explore this new genre of music themselves, for free, when the nationally recognized group Gustafer Yellowgold performs at the Fine Arts Center (FAC) of Kershaw County Monday, Jan. 23 at 6:30 p.m.

Truck route

We're glad to see that another hurdle has been cleared in the city of Camden's efforts to get a truck bypass of the downtown area established. The Santee-Lynches Council of Governments recently voted unanimously to approve all three segments of the proposed truck route, and the vote also means about $17 million worth of state and federal funding will be released for the project. Obviously, that's a big step forward and puts the project into "when is this going to happen" status rather than "is this ever going to happen?" condition.

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 ...
