Another view of Plan B

In "Getting it wrong about Plan B," Ruth Marcus ends her column by stating that the debate over the proposed Plan B policy "isn't about the government coming between parents and children or society condoning teen sex. It's about preventing teen pregnancy."

Reflecting on 100 years of success

KershawHealth recently completed a week of celebration commemorating the opening of the Camden Hospital in 1913 and a century of outstanding care. One of the things that struck me during those activities was the incredible amount of community support the hospital has always enjoyed, and the amazing things that strategic thinking and teamwork can accomplish.

Getting it wrong on Plan B

WASHINGTON -- As a mom, I can't help but cringe.

Friends are the family you get to choose

Last week, two poignant events occurred in my life. The first was that I celebrated turning another year older, the second being the death of one of my very best friends' mother after a brutal battle with cancer. During the course of the week, I experienced a variety of conflicting emotions from utter heartbreak of losing someone close to me and also "celebration" that I was able to turn another year older. This was difficult due to the fact that some of the people closest to me, including myself, were grieving the loss of a life during a time that ...

Still moving foward

The present concern of the city council, working with the Camden Business Alliance led by Jonathan Bazinet and Patricia Richardson, remains our downtown. Without question, the Lowes/Walmart/Kmart shopping district on the west side of town will continue to thrive, as it should, but for most people driving into Camden off I-20, downtown Broad Street sets the tone of who we are and makes a statement about our community identity.

Monitoring ‘Generation M2’

"You've got mail!" Ah, the words so many of us associate with our first email accounts, our AOL email accounts. Hearing that proverbial voice almost produced an air of excitement in an otherwise monotonous day behind our desks, a welcomed distraction in the daily grind. Of course, a great deal has changed since the late '90s. My son was quick to tell me recently our AOL account was a dinosaur and we should really update as soon as possible. He belongs to what some call "Generation M2," highly tech-savvy children ages 8 to 18, whose lives are immersed in ...

Show some appreciation everyday

As the Chronicle-Independent's education reporter, April usually brings lots of "graduations" and ceremonies celebrating students' achievements from throughout their high school career. Last year, I determined, and confirmed this year, that if I ever have a child I will be one of those moms who cries at all of my kids events.
