As the elected officers of the South Carolina Chapter of the American Academy of Pediatrics (SCAAP), we are writing to express our concerns for children as the pandemic continues.  Representing over 750 pediatricians statewide, we stand united with our AAP colleagues (over 67,000) nationally to...
CHARLESTON – Apparently all that matters is getting reelected, at any cost including loss of life. That is the message the SC Senate is sending now with the advancing of HB 3094, Open Carry with Permit. “In bypassing regular order, the Senate is refusing to acknowledge and address the dangers...
The editor, In a recent Chronicle, you expressed your concern that at some point you might lose the right to vote. Should you become physically challenged, you fear state lawmakers will still DEMAND you walk into a polling place and show an ID or two before you cast your ballot.  I am pretty...
We are all struggling to make sense of why Presbyterian College would discontinue the contract of football head coach Tommy Spangler. Maybe it’s as simple as this, from the conservative publication “National Review:”   When the Faculty Lounge Goes After College Sports -- Greg Dumas -- April 25,...
