In November, KershawHealth became a part of the Capella-MUSC Health Network, and some additional logos on the medical center in Camden became quite visible. Ever since then, one of the questions I'm often asked is, "How's this affiliation with MUSC going to work?"
Sometime during the next few weeks, I will become a very distant cousin to the Six Million Dollar Man or, more precisely, The Bionic Woman.
WASHINGTON -- It is axiomatic to know congressional Republicans will oppose anything smacking of "gun control," which may as well be read as "Your mama."
Several days prior to the New Year, a friend asked me what resolutions I had set for myself. I thought, "Did she say 'resolutions' or perhaps I didn't hear her correctly?" She definitely said "resolutions," yet I had none to reply with. I didn't have one measly surrender to give her. As a matter of fact, I didn't declare any New Year's resolutions last year, either. In truth, it has been at the least several years since I have proclaimed to the world the self-denials I would inflict upon myself in that given New Year. My ...
Back in the late 1990s, my company developed the first internet strategy for the Ministry of Health in Australia. In all honesty, we really didn't know much about what we were doing, but I learned one thing: with technology, the right incentives and political leadership, big changes are possible very quickly.
At first glance, I would have probably gone with the most recent meme -- "2015: the year absolutely everyone was offended." After all, it seems you can't so much as yawn without having someone from the National Association of Terminally Boring Pinheads, or some such, planning a march in your front yard.
WASHINGTON -- What's better than being kingmaker? Being king.
In those days, I was too young to fully grasp the education I was receiving. That's typical of most teenagers I suppose. At the age of 19, insight, wisdom and knowledge rolled off me like a well cooked egg slides easily over Teflon but somewhere it deposited itself so it bubbled up later.
Dr. Allen Stokes, the cataloger of the Yates Snowden papers at the South Caroliniana Library, called my attention to a March 7, 1927, letter in the collection from Thomas J. Kirkland. At some point before March 7, Yates Snowden, long time head of the History Department at the University of South Carolina, had received a copy of Historic Camden, Volume II written by Kirkland and Kennedy. Snowden reviewed this work in a letter to Kirkland.
WASHINGTON -- Last week, Hillary Clinton's campaign released an ambitious plan for curbing tax inversions. It's a good start, even if much more is needed.
A week ago, I named first responders as my People of the Year for 2015. Included among them are our police department officers and sheriff's office deputies. In honoring them, I mentioned some of the things they do to help the community and the risks they take in keeping us safe here in Kershaw County.
Many people have no clear idea about the Kershaw County Chamber of Commerce and Visitors' Center at the Mills Court House on Broad Street. It might be time to identify the Chamber and clarify its mission.
The two most often made (and broken) New Year's resolutions are to lose weight and to quit smoking. If you need any evidence of this, count how many ads you see on TV for weight loss and quit smoking products in all the football bowl games.
Camden, SC -- When I am old and looking toward my final hours in this mortal coil, I want to be in a hospital intensive care unit hooked up to machines and tubes - nobody ever said.
It's been a long time since I have done any heavy duty partying on New Year's Eve. I probably haven't been to a New Year's Eve bacchanal in more than a decade or two and while I am still capable and willing to make really lousy decisions, I haven't done a blithering, whirly-eyed debauch-a-thon at New Years probably since my roaring 20s.
WASHINGTON -- Two recent comments by famous feminists have underscored the inevitable and predicted the foregone: The feminist era of Hillary Clinton, Gloria Steinem and Madeleine ...
A little more than three months ago, my siblings and I found ourselves in a familiar but unwelcome place -- the hallway of the cardiac intensive- ...
While living in South Carolina, I was fortunate enough to have a Rufous Hummingbird hang around my home from December 2013 to April 2014. This ...
Lately, I've been thinking: If there's anything to reincarnation, then I want to come back as one of my critters.
PALM BEACH, Fla. -- As speaking fees go, Hillary Clinton's allegedly scandalous $200,000 per engagement is chump change compared with Donald Trump's $1 ...
It was a rare, precious afternoon for me. Dixie Dew and I were settled deeply into an easy chair with legs flopped across the ottoman ...
This story was supposed to have a happy ending.
