Robert Mills’ trail in Camden

When I was a pre-teen, I absolutely devoured every Nancy Drew mystery book I could check out of the Charleston County Library or borrow from a friend. Oh, the adventures Nancy took me on as she snooped out the trail of a mystery. Each little clue she found led to another and another and they all eventually solved the mystery. The exotic situations in which she became involved were fascinating. She always solved the mystery, through each one's twisting, turning plot. Clue by clue.

In luck we trust

WASHINGTON -- As we evaluate the efficacy of the War on Poverty, a single, unquantifiable factor stubbornly demands attention: luck.

Nightmares in the movie theater

I went with a friend of mine to see a movie this weekend. We had both been looking forward to seeing the movie for awhile and finally had the time to get to the theater. We chose to visit a nice theater in a nearby city where tickets are a bit more expensive to account for the plush, stadium seating. We arrived about 20 minutes before the showing, bought our tickets and found a nice seat, near the back in the center.

Mental health and the SCDC

I am not a mental health expert, nor an expert on running corrections facilities, whether they be detention centers, like our county jail, or major institutions such as Wateree Correctional over the Sumter county line.

On state budget, lawmakers should try following the law

If you're like most well-informed South Carolinians, you have absolutely no idea what's in the state budget until the late spring or early summer, and by that time it's about to pass into law. If you want to know what's in the budget before it's too late to make a difference, you'll need to come to Columbia and spend three days a week from January to April, and attend a variety of budget subcommittee and committee meetings -- and even then you won't have any firm idea of which programs and agencies state leaders ...

The bow maker

The renowned bow maker in my hometown died. Only in the South would this probably be news because we Southern women do admire a package well wrapped.

KershawHealth: a solid foundation for the future

There is no doubt that 2013 was a stressful and challenging year for KershawHealth. But it was also the year this healthcare system celebrated its centennial, and I can assure you, there are very few hospitals that have duplicated this accomplishment. It's easy to see why. In the short time that I've been at KershawHealth, I've already seen tremendous strengths here that are a huge benefit, not only to the hospital, but to the community at large. It's clear that KershawHealth has a solid foundation to build on for the future.

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.

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.
