Hillary and Jill went up the hill

WASHINGTON -- With The New York Times' sudden dismissal of Executive Editor Jill Abramson and Karl Rove's suggestion that Hillary Clinton might have brain damage, the curtain opened on a new theater in an old war.

Isn’t graduating fun?

Graduation time is upon us and there's such a buzz of excitement in the air. High school and college students are collectively gearing up for the next stage in their life and emotions are strong. I have to say, I'm particularly glad that I'm not graduating from anything this year.

Getting rid of the pain in my neck

Since the end of August, I have been the pain in my own neck. I suffered whiplash at that time, aggravating a pair of already bulging discs that had bothered me the year before. I've been in pain ever since.

Wasting time

What one person considers wasting time, another believes to be necessary. I grew up in a time when what your parents said was law and employers set the rules. No one dared to defy authority. Nevertheless, I often did mandatory chores that I considered, and still consider, to be a waste of time.

Bill Maher’s tiny point

WASHINGTON -- When my neighbor gleefully reported that Bill Maher had dedicated a searing monologue to me for a column about the Donald Sterling/Cliven Bundy rants, my first thought was, Nah. If I tussled with everybody who tossed a brick through the window, I'd never get the draperies hung.

Do it for the children, and for yourselves

I listened intently to a presentation given to the Kershaw County Council by representatives of the Kershaw County School District at the council meeting this week. It's my job to listen. But I was also quite impressed with what Kershaw County Board of Trustees Chairwoman Mara Jones and Kershaw County School District Chief Financial Officer Donnie Wilson had to say. It's the budget season for most government bodies, including the county council and the school district and Jones and Wilson explained the financial challenges of running the district and what they hope to see improved over the next ...

The Lafayette Ball Gown

The Camden Archives and Museum has been entrusted with the care of the famed Lafayette Ball gown worn by Margaret Evans Larkin Rochelle Starke in 1825 on the occasion of General Lafayette's visit to Camden. Margaret (1791-1872) was the wife of Thomas Starke (1789-1855). They resided in Fairfield County where Thomas was a planter of some means. Margaret wore this dress six months after the birth of her seventh child and it would have been a flattering style for a post-pregnancy figure.

Mad Men, I’ll miss you most

It's always a little sad when your favorite TV show announces it's in its last season. Sometimes a show stays on TV for way too long and wears out its welcome and sometimes it exits quiet and gracefully at the appropriate time. Unfortunately in many cases, the devoted viewers often feel it's a bit of a premature departure.

What the court got wrong

WASHINGTON -- The genius of the Constitution is to establish zones in which the rights of the minority are protected against majority oppression: freedom of speech and religion, for example, or equal protection of the laws. The role of the Supreme Court is, to borrow Chief Justice John Roberts' metaphor, to umpire the play within those zones, calling fouls on the majority when it oversteps.

What are the consequences of closing BES?

When I first moved into Kershaw County in 1999, I lived just inside the Cassatt zip code, close to Camden's. The following year, I began working for this newspaper as a staff reporter. My beats comprised covering the city of Camden, including crime; healthcare, especially as related to KershawHealth; and the town of Bethune.

The KershawHealth Strategic Plan approved unanimously by our Board of Trustees presents an ambitious, but achievable, road map for the organization's future, both short and long term.
