KershawHealth

In a previous letter, I recommended that the Board of Trustees consider partnering with a proven health care system to fix the problems at KershawHealth. What they have decided to do is to go through a time consuming process to sift out a new CEO from among a large number of candidates. Once chosen, that person would then have to take some time to select a team of administrative professionals to implement change. Then they would have to come up with a plan, which would then have to be discussed/debated with the Board of Trustees.

As things get worse

As the days, weeks and years go by, it seems as if the ways of the world and bloody actions of people get worse and worse. A lot of this comes from the laws of the land. If you only think and remember, the government banned prayer from functions, sports and schools; tied the hands of parents from disciplining their children; and places outrageous taxes and fines on everything.

A happy, satisfied patient

Last week, I had surgery at KershawHealth. In light of the recent intense media reporting about problems at KershawHealth, I was anxious to see firsthand what impact it may have had on the day-to-day operation. Well, it was better than I expected … a lot better! From admission to discharge and each step in between, I was treated by a team of angels. They were respectful, motivated, professional, capable and caring. I could not have asked for better care. KershawHealth and my angels occupy a special place in my heart.

CHS band was a champion, too

At last Friday Night's tilt between Camden and Cheraw, I read with interest the eloquent narrative about Zemp Stadium contained in the game program. Quoting from the narrative's first paragraph, it read: "Zemp Stadium has been host to 7 State Championship teams during its long and illustrious history."

Readers and Viewers Beware! Separating fact from fiction sometimes requires reading between the lines and being educated about what is not reported!!!

Weeks dedicated to public service

Recently, our KershawHealth CEO, Donnie J. Weeks, announced his retirement. The last couple of years have not been an easy time for the healthcare industry as a whole.

County should find partner to manage KershawHealth

I would like to see the county look into the possibility of partnering with a proven healthcare system to administrate KershawHealth. This has been done successfully in many areas of the country. One that I am familiar with, having seen it develop when I was in diagnostic imaging sales, is Carolinas Health System (CHS), headquartered in Charlotte.

Pave rest of S.C. 34

After putting up with the inconvenience of the paving of four and a half miles of S.C. 34 in Lugoff, I see they are done. What about the remaining five and a half miles of S.C. 34 extending to the Fairfield County line? It is like night and day crossing the county line into Fairfield County.

Something to think about

To say, "I am an American" makes us all equal as citizens no matter from what country our ancestors came -- whether Ireland or Germany or Russia or Africa or any other place. It is good to know our heritage and be blessed by it; but when we become citizens of the United States of America, we become Americans. It should stand first in our allegiance and first in our identification. How can we stand together if we place another country first in identifying who we are? To do this is to separate ourselves from other Americans. Something to think about.

A grateful mother

To those kind folks in Camden who so generously paid tribute to "Jacky" James and for the generosity shown in giving generously toward a dog rescue in Chesapeake (City, Md., Paws for Life). I have been sent a photo of a lovely looking male dog which has been saved from death row and been adopted by some kind person.

Honoring a father

Please accept my heartfelt thanks and gratitude to all parties responsible for the placement of the Leaders Legacy bench in honor of my late father, Mr. James L. Anderson Sr. I was not able to be there due to an illness of long standing and an inability to travel. I have missed Camden and family members terribly and, again, state that I would have been with you as you honored my Dad.

Renovate county pool

The recent letter concerning our recreation department pool was correct in many areas. However, I would like to contribute to the observations.

We depend on deputies

It happened again. Our sheriff, Jim Matthews, spoke before Kershaw County Council the evening of June 25. After witnessing the sheriff addressing council, I now believe the only thing left he can do is to get on his knees and beg. Throw his hands up. He has tried so hard, yet his deputies are underpaid and his department is understaffed.

Adopt a Highway

My family and I just went through one of the toughest moments any family will have to endure. We lost our mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, wife, aunt, sister and dear friend, Sandra Anderson, on May 6, 2013, to cancer. We as a family were devastated and wanted to do something to commemorate the passion and love she had for people and life. We decided to Adopt a Highway in her honor. We chose Elliott Hunter Road in Cassatt as our road of choice, since this was on the way to our Mom's house.

Rhame Arena concept

During the last Camden City Council work session, and as reported in the July 28 Chronicle-Independent, the concept of "adaptive reuse" of Rhame Arena was discussed. It was during this discussion that it was noted that the concept and sketch under discussion was developed by the daughter of Marti Wallace and Mike Jones (Elizabeth Ancrum Jones). Miss Jones developed her proposal several years ago. After a discussion of the property during a prior council meeting, her work was provided to city staff for their consideration.

2014 TripAdvisor awards

It is always exciting to read positive press in the Chronicle-Independent concerning businesses in our area.
