KershawHealth's nine-member board of trustees is appointed for six-year terms by the Kershaw County Council. These trustees, who come from throughout Kershaw County, represent a broad range of expertise. Because healthcare is such a complicated and highly-regulated business, serving on the board demands a great deal of work and a significant time commitment. We are deeply grateful for those who, during the last 100 years, have given so generously of their time and talents. Their leadership and support have been critical to the growth and quality of healthcare in Kershaw County.
It should come as no surprise to long-time readers that I am absolutely loving Aaron Sorkin's The Newsroom on HBO. In fact, considering some of my latest columns, new readers probably aren't surprised, either.
America, the land of milk and honey and self-realization, has a poverty rate that is steadily increasing.
Some countries fight their culture wars with guns, bombs or knives. This summer we Americans do it with chicken.
U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder may show up on "Jeopardy!" one of these days. No, not as a contestant. As an answer. The clue: "He's the first attorney general in U.S. history to be held in contempt of Congress." The answer: "Who is Eric Holder?"
Even the French don't want to live in France anymore.
In 1987, Newsweek Magazine caught the public's attention after it labeled then-presidential candidate George H.W. Bush a "wimp."
The recent 109 degree temperature made me remember what seemed to be even hotter days. When my younger friends ask me if I ever had hot flashes, I have to laugh. Since I taught in an unair-conditioned school where required apparel was a dress, slip, underwear and stockings I was always in a state of hot flashes. If I ever had a medical hot flash, I do not know. School began in August. In a matter of minutes, not one thread of clothing was dry. In fact, at lunch, when allowed, I went home, took a bath, changed clothes, and ...
WASHINGTON -- Not surprisingly, Barbara Bush said it most succinctly: "The first lady is going to be criticized no matter what she does."
Talk about a "post-racial" America when President Barack Obama was elected has pretty much gone away, for good reason. Even he didn't believe it.
Dan Cathy could have saved his company, Chick-fil-A, a lot of trouble. All he had to do was keep his views about family to himself.
For some reason people are shocked by Chick-fil-A's stance on marriage.
It's what's inside -- the verve; the drive; the untainted grit. It's the pilot light that never goes out. It's the fervor propelling an individual to impressive heights. It's the cause and effect. It's what makes a person leap over the same hurdles hundreds, thousands of times before ever getting it right. It's what makes a person perform 25,000 dives a year hoping to get one score that will count forever. It's what makes a person realize that to win it all, you can't be afraid to lose. It's what ...
Does President Barack Obama really believe entrepreneurs "didn't build" their businesses? Does his rival Mitt Romney really "like being able to fire people?" Welcome to summertime, when the fate of campaigns hangs on silly sound bites.
If you've been watching the Olympic soccer competition, chances are good that you're now in a catatonic state -- drooling on your shirt, immobilized by boredom and trying desperately to suck down enough cans of Red Bull and 5-Hour Energy to keep your peepers open.
Hello, my name is Jimmy and I'm a hypochondriac.
Many people have crossed the path of my life, but only one crossed it from three different directions. Don Light, one of Nashville's most admired powerbrokers and star makers, was meant to be part of my life. I say this repeatedly because I encountered him through friends in country music, Southern gospel and NASCAR racing.
When we examine our experiences over time, our recollections of some of them stand out like posts supporting our "fence of life." These are memories we will never forget. Some refer to them as "muscle" memories, very strong ones.
By mid-June of 2000, I was so fed up and frustrated, I needed counseling.
WASHINGTON -- First-term first ladies are often shadows to their more-important husbands, dabbling in lite fare to avoid criticism and picking safe projects to shield them and their families from the inevitable slings and arrows.
Many extraordinary people offer visionary ideas, especially here. "Wouldn't it be great if we had a river rafting business on the Wateree?" "Wouldn't it be great if we had a downtown boutique hotel?" "Wouldn't it be great if we had a Bluegrass Festival the week of the Colonial Cup?" "Wouldn't it be great if we had a cottage development, or better yet, a new Kershaw County library on the former Mather property?" "And another restaurant or two!" The answer is predictably, "Yes, of course yes! Thank you for your great ideas," followed by necessary questions: "Where ...
CHARLESTON, S.C. -- By all appearances Friday morning, as thousands lined the street waiting (and wilting) for hours in 90-degree heat to enter the funeral arena where President Obama was to deliver a eulogy for state Sen. Clementa Pinckney, racial unity seemed a comfortable fact of life.
Even though it's not an election year, in many ways it's always an election year for some politicians. Given the fact they are "hired" and employed by the voting public, their lives are a nearly constant campaign for re-election. I can understand that. They have cushy jobs they want to keep for many years to come.
