  • Craig House renovations possible due to community and business support

    By ROSALIE STEELE

    Guest column

    In the midst of a most contentious political season, I write to celebrate the results of what happens when a community comes together to serve.

    The Oct. 27 Celebration of Hope at the grand re-opening of the refurbished W.D. Craig House demonstrated the commitment of the volunteer-driven Pee Dee Coalition Against Domestic and Sexual Assault to preserve the past and protect the future.

  • Springhill administrator counts her many blessings

    To the editor,

    As I reflect this Thanksgiving season on my many blessings, I think about how blessed I am to have Hospice of Chesterfield County in my life.

    Not only have they provided excellent hospice care for several of my family members and some of my residents over the years, their purchase of Springhill Assisted Living in 2014 allows my parent’s vision for assisted living in the Pageland area to continue. 

  • Hospice care is the greatest of these

    To the editor,

    It is November and this is Hospice month. Hospice of Chesterfield County is amazing.  I can definitely speak from my heart about these wonderful people because I have had six family members that were under their care during the past several years.

    I can truly say not one, but all six times, I was thankful for them.  The care and outpouring of love they had for our sick loved ones was wonderful.

  • Hospice helped me to keep my husband at home

    To the editor,

    November is Hospice Awareness Month.

    Having recently experienced their help with my beloved husband, Jimmy Airington, I would like to thank Hospice of Chesterfield County and each one of them for their dedication to their work.

    I could never have kept my husband at home without their help. He had pulmonary fibrosis, as well as bladder cancer. After the cancer surgery, he developed MRSA in the hospital as well as pneumonia.

  • Honoring our vets by providing improving their health care

    To the editor,

    The 11th hour of the 11th day in the 11th month of 1918 is a day in history that marked the end of major conflicts for those who had served during World War 1. 

    Since that day of Armistice, which ended the hostilities between the allied nations and Germany in 1918, veterans from all services have found themselves face-to-face with enemies while protecting our nation and our allies. 

  • Treasurer Loftis warned us about pension plan

    To the editor,

    In the past few weeks, our state’s pension plan has finally been in the news.

    We are being told that it is in terrible shape and that there is a debt of over $22 billion, and it is growing by $1 billion every year.

    This information is not new.

    State Treasurer Curtis Loftis has been saying for years that our state’s pension plan was in trouble. Treasurer Loftis warned that we were paying extremely high fees and making risky investments.

    No one listened.

  • Hospice helps patients, families focus on living at their best

    To the editor,

    No one likes to think about death and dying, but it’s something everyone has to face eventually.

    There’s an incredible resource in our community that provides comfort, dignity and respect to all those coping with a serious or life-limiting illness. It’s Hospice of Chesterfield County.

    November is National Hospice and Palliative Care Month, a time to reach out to our community to raise awareness about the compassionate care that hospice provides.

    I feel our government is ignoring the concerns of the United States and it citizens.
