Rich: The legacy of light

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.

Teal: ‘Muscle’ memories

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.

Parker: Michelle Obama’s evolution

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.

Scully: Vision and process

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 ...

Editorial: Sibby’s legacy

We offer our condolences to the family, friends and all of us who benefited from Sylvia Upton “Sibby” Wood’s life. Wood, also known as “Sib,” supported or was otherwise involved in so many things here in Kershaw County, they are almost too numerous to count. But count them we shall try as we mourn her death last week in Michigan at the age of 81.

Editorial: KershawHealth

During the last week, we have published two reports on KershawHealth. The first, growing out of the hospital’s most recent board of trustees meeting, focused on its market share. It is relatively healthy, thanks to KershawHealth’s being the only hospital in all of Kershaw County. More people living in the county turn to KershawHealth for emergency care than anywhere else. However, the report -- broadly speaking -- noted a decrease in market share in outpatient services and only slight increases for inpatient services.

Reader: leaders must catch up with 21st century

Recently, the United States Supreme Court saved the Affordable Care Act for generations to come. Many conservatives and the GOP seemed woefully ignorant of our healthcare system.

Reader wants ‘fair and balanced reporting’

During the open meetings of all of our public bodies, there is provided a period for public comments. This period is part of the meeting agenda and is, presumably, included in the meeting’s minutes. Therefore, these comments become part of the public record. This period is set aside for anyone wanting to speak about matters of concern, as long as the comments are about public issues (not to include the promotion of a private business and not about personal issues). Although the public comment period is not a period of debate, it provides private citizens an opportunity to let ...

Reader, wife support removing Confederate battle flag

Several years ago, my wife and I, along with our youngest son, his wife and their children, attended a Fourth of July celebration in Bath, Maine. Bath is a picturesque little city which only Maine seems capable of providing. It is also a seafaring town, home to the Bath Iron Works, where ships have slid down the ways for close to 200 years.

Reader: take advantage of 'living history'

I was browsing the internet looking at different sites listing historical events of the past 100 years and was surprised to see how much of history had been left off. So many events which have taken place during the past century which have been instrumental in the growth of this country have been left out of our history books and articles of today.
