At the movies ... at home

If Hollywood depended on people like me, the movie industry would be busted flatter than Bernie Madoff's investor friends.

How Rahm defused the race bomb

It seemed like a good idea at the time. After Chicago Mayor Richard M. Daley announced he would not run for reelection after almost 22 years in office, the Rev. Jesse Jackson and other prominent black leaders saw a golden opportunity.

Figuring out the dollars and sense

I'm a journalist, which, by definition, means that I hate math.

How long is a long good-bye?

Lately and more than once, that irritating detail known as "time" has saturated my mind in an especially tense and poignant manner. Tick –tock. Tick-tock. Shut off that annoying sound. Can time be disguised as sound? It can be for some. Perhaps it's the sound of an alarm clock at first light; or the sound of a bell when the school day is complete; or the sound of a buzzer when the game is over; or the sound of a flat line at the end of a life. Time can relate to sound, whether it's the sound we ...

Music to make you smile

Music makes the world go 'round. A world without music is a world in which I wouldn't want to live.

The power of early education

One of the many priceless moments in the 1990 film "Kindergarten Cop" takes place when Detective John Kimble, played by Arnold Schwarzenegger, tries to explain why he is a kindergarten teacher. To a teacher colleague, who is unaware he has entered the school in an undercover role, he explains, "I got tired of teaching teenagers because by the time they came to me I felt there wasn't much I could do with them. I realized that the real action is in kindergarten."

A crisis offers union-busting opportunity

If anything is clear in the labor clash that has brought Wisconsin government to a screeching halt it is how neither side has been all that clear about what the fight really is about.

Councils' strategies are smart moves

The face(s) of Kershaw County public education

While sorting through the papers of a deceased friend of mine who wished them given to the South Caroliniana Library, I came across a 1970-71 annual of the Kershaw County Vocational Center. I soon visited Howard Branham, director of the Camden Archives and Museum, to see if they had a copy in their collection. They did not but in a few minutes Howard made a copy and added it to their collection.

A personal recollection

As South Carolinians continue their celebration of Black History Month, I am today even more uplifted than ever by the profound contributions of African-Americans to the never-ending challenge to improve our communities, our state and our nation.

County sets efficiency, prosperity as targets

The 2011 Kershaw County Council is off to a quick start. First, we were faced with the resignation of the county administrator. Fortunately, Frank Broom, a seasoned county and city administrator, stepped forward. The Council unanimously voted for Mr. Broom to become the interim county administrator. Mr. Broom has wasted no time in demonstrating his exceptional leadership skills in the public arena. Many lingering issues were immediately resolved and many new initiatives were suggested.

Thumb-twiddling no option

WASHINGTON -- Procrastination is rarely a cost-free strategy. That is true when it comes to fixing Social Security -- as much as the Obama administration and, even more forcefully, its allies on the left may wish to believe otherwise. Their "what's the big rush?" message goes like this: The retirement program isn't really contributing to deficits in the short run. Indeed, its finances are healthy enough so that it can continue paying all promised benefits for more than two decades, until 2037. Even then, if absolutely nothing is done, Social Security would be able to pay about 75 percent of ...

Again, KershawHealth is year’s top story

After years of declaring a group or person of the year, I used this space a year ago to name KershawHealth the 2013 story of the year.

Rich: Oh, Christmas tree

It was late in the summer of my parents' lives that I was born into a family with three children well on their way to being grown and done with home.

Felder: The tragedy of Bill Cosby

I threw away my Bill Cosby book a few days ago. It was funny, and it made me laugh but now because of who wrote it, it disgusts me. Perhaps that is petty, but I cannot read it or watch shows associated with Bill Cosby any longer.

S.C. Noble: Republicans have an attitude problem

When I was a school boy, there was a kid down the street named Rodney who had an "attitude problem," or at least that's what the adults called it. To me and my friends, Rodney was just a jerk.

Phillips: A Merry Christmas to all

I am a big believer in everyone's right to think and feel however they choose to. It's really what makes us all American and, to make it even broader, it's what makes us all human. If I don't happen to agree with your point of view, I still respect your right to have that point of view.

Camden Archives and Museum celebrates its centennial

One hundred years ago, in 1915, 1314 Broad St. was a construction site. Excavators and bricklayers, carpenters and heating contractors were busy at their task of building Camden's first city library. It had been an arduous journey getting to that point. That journey began in 1914, as best we can reckon, at a lecture to the Kershaw County Teachers Institute. In all of the factors leading up to the acquisition and completion of the Camden Public Library there is one constant: Sarah "Sadie" Kennedy Von Tresckow.

Owens: Year in review

To say that 2014 has had its ups and downs would be an understatement. Honestly, I don't know what words or phrases I would use to describe how my 2014 played out. It wasn't the worst year ever, but it definitely wasn't the greatest.

The loss of parents and their wisdom

There are few who cannot say truthfully that they miss their parents after death has laid claim to those loved ones. The parents who taught us, scolded us and, at times, annoyed us are never forgotten, never put away on a shelf to be remembered no more.

Gunn: Partnership drives investment in health

You may have read about the letter of intent to be agreed upon between KershawHealth and MUSC Health/Capella Healthcare. This agreement is about more than simply the leasing of real estate and ownership of property. Ultimately, it is about an investment of organizational and financial resources in this community and its healthcare needs. MUSC Health/Capella Healthcare will invest heavily in programs, facilities, and services at KershawHealth that will increase our patient volume and, in turn, increase revenue. From an organizational standpoint, it will provide access to best practices and strategies to improve the quality of care provided, enhance ...
