Doing a lot with a little

The Kershaw County Sheriff's Office (KCSO) recently released its crime statistics for 2013 and most categories of offenses were noticeably down from 2012. Kudos to the KCSO for having such a productive year. I won't go very deep into that here, as a story on the subject is planned for an upcoming issue of the Chronicle-Independent.

Women’s lot in the past

Women have certainly achieved a higher place in society than in the past. They are educated, liberal and independent. Most modern women, however, have no idea how little power women had in the past. Society was a masculine one.

Dipping into the mailbag again

* My friend Waylon Fortenberry of Chesterfield County tells me his 3-year-old grandson went into the bathroom, and his mom was concerned he'd been in there for quite awhile, so she went in to check on him.

The meaning of words

WASHINGTON -- In politics, it's all in how you say things.

There they go again

WASHINGTON -- If you happen to be one of those who enjoy politics as a blood sport, 2014's midterm election promises to be a carnival of gore.

SC 2014: Are you better off…?

As the calendar turns to an election year here in South Carolina, all the usual political suspects are starting to offer up all the usual political rhetoric to try to win your vote, with one side telling you that our state's current economic forecast is cloudy with a chance of Armageddon, and the other insisting that prosperity, or at least whatever passes for it these days, is right around the corner.

Sherman’s war on S.C. civilians

Prior to invading South Carolina, Sherman stated his intentions in a communication with General Grant. "I do sincerely believe that the whole United States, north and south, would rejoice to have this army turned loose on South Carolina, to devastate that state in the manner we have done in Georgia…."

Healthcare industry blues for 2014?

As I spelled out near the end of last month, the biggest local story of 2013 was KershawHealth. As faithful readers know, as the healthcare organization celebrated its centennial, it became further bogged down by losses caused primarily by external factors. Those factors include continuing shifts -- thanks to the economic fallout of the last few years -- from inpatient to outpatient volumes, cuts in governmental and commercial reimbursements and South Carolina's decision not to expand Medicaid.

The way she was

The way she was was a long way from what she became. I can't help thinking about how life veers so far away from the beginning of the journey and how the destination can vary drastically from where it all started.

The insufferable whistleblower

WASHINGTON -- Time has not deflated Edward Snowden's messianic sense of self-importance. Nor has living in an actual police state given the National Security Agency whistleblower any greater appreciation of the actual freedoms that Americans enjoy.

New year, new leaf

As the memories of Christmas fade behind us and we enter a new year, it is time once again to reflect on the past year and look forward to the year ahead.

Murph on...

Like many Americans, I continue to be amazed at the tremendous valor and humility of our military past and present fighting and protecting the very freedoms we welcome everyday. I never want to take their selfless service for granted. Since 9/11, our armed forces have been fighting what some would describe as the impossible -- the Global War on Terror -- including the recent conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan. They train and train then train some more. They answer the call of duty from their commander in chief swiftly and without hesitation. Most will tell you they are simply doing their ...

2014 ... a/k/a the best year yet

I have a great feeling that 2014 is going to be a great year. I'm not the type to trash on an entire year, and I also try to find the good in situations, but what the heck, 2013 -- why were you kinda lame?
