Lessons from Patient Zero

WASHINGTON -- Monica Lewinsky is trying to make lemonade out of 16-year-old lemons. Good for her, and good, ultimately, for us.

The deepest hole

July 27 marked the beginning of the most stressful week of my life. It began with the surprising news of my aunt’s passing, and on top of having to deal with that, I also had to get through my last week of two summer classes and do work for two other classes that would end the following week.

Everything works out if you let it

A friend of mine, long embroiled in upsets, distractions, problems and tribulations, called one day to announce happily that she was learning to “let things roll right off my back.”

Cancer screening

We wrote recently of a change in the way KershawHealth is managing its emergency department, sending seriously threatened patients to one area for immediate, vital care while directing others who are less ill to be treated in a non-emergency system. It’s cost-effective, but also provides quality care for both types of patients.

Express Care

One of the problems with the expense of health care is the fact that many people tend to use a hospital’s emergency room as their primary care facility, going there with normal ailments such as flu and severe colds. Emergency room care is expensive -- too costly to be used in that way. KershawHealth is no different than other hospitals in that regard, and the decision to “split” the emergency department there is a sound one.

Your vote, your choice

Today, the Chronicle-Independent begins a series of articles summarizing the candidates and issues that will be on the Nov. 4 ballot, one week from Tuesday. Perhaps the most contentious race isn’t between candidates but between “yes” and “no” on two referenda offered by the Kershaw County School District.

Power, divided

We’ve always believed the United States government works best when power is divided -- that is, with a president from one party and a Congress controlled by the opposite party. As of now, of course, we have a Democratic president and a split Congress, with the House of Representatives controlled by Republicans and the Senate dominated by Democrats. There are multiple forecasting models out there for the upcoming election, with most of them giving the GOP a better-than-even chance of gaining a majority in the Senate while retaining control of the House.

Reader: SCHSL decision sends wrong message

Regarding the S.C. High School League decision concerning the so called “brawl” after the Camden-Dreher football game, the league has the legal authority to assess such penalties since the schools are, by their own action, voluntary members. And I understand the league’s objective of trying to emphasize that such conduct is not acceptable and should be dealt with appropriately.

L-EHS student concerned about animal shelter

I am writing this letter about the concerns of the Walter M. Crowe Animal Shelter. Our animal shelter has its pros and cons. The benefits of an animal shelter is it provides protection for those individuals that cannot afford the proper care for their animal. Think about it: what would our city look like if we did not have an animal shelter? There would be dogs and cats running around freely. Every day I ride down Hwy. 1, I see a helpless dog on the side of the rode with its ribs sticking out from lack of nutrients.
