America a better place because of men like Charles Murray

As Americans, we're blessed to live in the greatest nation in the world. But all too often we tend to take for granted the heroes among us who fought and sacrificed to protect us, our ideals, and our freedom.

Message over actions gives Sanford second life in politics

Sometimes it's an easy formula when running for political office. Tell people what they want to hear and reap the rewards. At one time, that formula was working perfectly for former S.C. Gov. Mark Sanford. He knew how to send a political message and how to make people listen.

Island family

Most of the people who lived there and felt an allegiance to the crown left the area around 230 years ago. Many of the loyalists or Tories voluntarily left before the American Revolution, but those who sided and fought with the British eventually lost their homes and fled.

Triking it

If you've recently traveled to a vacation area that's popular with motorcyclists -- Myrtle Beach or the Blue Ridge Parkway come to mind -- you might have noticed the latest trend in the biker world, a development that only a decade ago would have been considered unfathomable:

A business like no other

While our mission is to provide excellent health care, ultimately, hospitals like KershawHealth are a business. They generate income, pay salaries, make investments in facilities and equipment, and face expenses related to providing care. As we all know, it is impossible to operate indefinitely when expenses outpace income. That is why KershawHealth has been working diligently to improve efficiency and contain costs. But hospitals are, in some very significant aspects, a business unlike any other.

Moment of Nature - Feb. 27, 2015

Murder is a strong word and truth be known it's not really what happens (unfortunately) when a crape myrtle, a Southern signature tree is topped, but it has become a familiar vernacular amongst plant people. If crape myrtles did in fact die when they were butchered, then the practice would stop.
