A scorned South Carolina hero

April 11, 2014 was a very important day in the history of South Carolina. Few people noticed that anything much happened – but I would argue that this was the day we as a state did two very important things.

The Colbert Report

Focusing on finding the best healthcare outcomes

Recently, I attended the Congress on Healthcare Leadership presented by the American College of Healthcare Executives, and I was most impressed by one presentation: Building the New Healthcare Delivery System. In particular, I was struck by the fact that healthcare executives from across the country were focused almost exclusively on this new world of healthcare and its impact on how the organizations they lead are designed.

‘NEGU’

Life requires courage. Courage doesn't always roar like a lion. Sometimes courage is a quiet voice, unassuming in all its resilience and fortitude, the gentle giant among us, the self-effacing titan in our presence. Remember the line, or was it a show on television -- "kids say the darndest things?" For the moment, I'm going to change it to say, "Kids do insanely courageous things." I always find it an amazing occurrence when certain people or groups of people are put in our paths. They dissect our "straight" lines for reasons often unknown to us. Most of us just ...

The bigger they are…

I have been watching with great interest this week the news reports on the trial of former Chesterfield County Sheriff Sam Parker. As many of you know, I came here from Pageland in Chesterfield County in late December and when I first went to work there in early 2011, Parker was the sheriff. So, I knew Parker well through my work.

A circuit court judge is in the process of deciding what bond to set, if any, for a Sumter County man accused of killing a Camden man during a March 22 incident on Black River Road.

The beginning of a beautiful relationship

This past weekend, I participated in the first organized race event of my life and what a special race I chose. The annual Cooper River Bridge Run is in its 37th year of life and saw approximately 40,000 people cover 6 miles of pavement and asphalt to cross its finish line this Saturday.

Let’s talk about sex in S.C.

Now that I have your attention, let's narrow the focus a bit and talk about sex education in South Carolina. It may not be as titillating, but it's still really important.

Demonizing the Kochs

The little girl with red dirt feet

Most husbands, if they carry a photo of their wives, like for it to be one of glamour and beauty. That would not be my husband.
