Guest columnist Dane Curtsinger is an Indian Land resident.

Curtsinger column: Let’s explore splitting up school district

There have been rumors that Indian Land students may be bused to other under-capacity schools as an option to address the over-capacity issues at Indian Land Middle and Indian Land High schools.
The Lancaster County school board discussed this issue at a recent retreat and has given me the following statement:
“In a rare situation, if it becomes necessary to bus students to another school, the school district will do its utmost to insure those children presently in the attendance area will continue to attend school within their attendance area.”

Guest columnist Phil Noble is a businessman in Charleston and president of the S.C. New Democrats

Noble column: Haley’s $29,000 football tickets and higher ed reform

I love this state, I really do – and that’s why I get so frustrated when we can’t do the obvious right thing for stupid reasons. (Like, say, $29,000 worth of free football tickets, but more on that in a moment.)
It seems to happen a lot and the current prime example of this is how higher education in this state is run, or probably more accurately, not run.

Guest columnist Dr. L. Brooks Walker is a resident of Heath Springs.

Walker Column: Walker has higher ambitions than being vice president

This is in response to James McManus’ Feb. 25 letter, “Walker should run for vice president.”
Well, I guess you got me, James. I will overlook the sarcasm and pretend you really want me to be vice president. Judging by your comments, it appears that former President George Bush and I must be living in your brain rent-free. Could you stock the fridge in here? We need pizza and Mountain Dew.

Guest columnist Alan Wilson is the attorney general of South Carolina

Wilson column: Professor’s death displays domestic violence problem in South Carolina

On Feb. 5, about 1:15 p.m., students at the University of South Carolina received a text message warning “SHOTS FIRED” – two words that would send chills and panic through the large campus that is home to nearly 32,000 students.
For a few hours, we all believed that USC had become the latest face of campus shootings.
Instead, we soon would learn, USC had become the latest site of an epidemic that usually spreads in obscurity, but is all too familiar in South Carolina – domestic violence.

Guest columnist Bob Lanning is pastor of Cornerstone Bible Church

Lanning column: King’s dream a ‘big picture’ of end times?

Daniel 2 describes a dream of Nebuchadnezzar, king of Babylon, who later conquered Jerusalem in 586 B.C. Trou-
bled by his dream, he demanded that his wise men tell him both the dream and its interpretation, or else be dismembered and disgraced.
As one of several young Hebrews taken captive and trained by Nebuchadnezzar, Daniel faced certain death if he failed to obey the king’s command. Requesting more time, he and his three friends met together to beseech God for wisdom.

Guest columnist Charles M. Ussery is a Kershaw resident

Ussery column: How I ‘hypnotized’ 52 chickens in June of 1960

 

A  family member requested I write about the time I “hypnotized” 52 chickens for a $25 bet with five of my friends. Even though these were close friends, they did not know that I had a master’s degree in the social life of chickens.

Guest columnist Rudy Schmidt is a Lancaster resident.

Schmidt column: Continued lies will be cause of our downfall

 

Lies surround us by politicians, media big shots and by our ruling class in general.

“God is not a man, that he should lie” (Numbers 23:19). It looks like men are not God that they should or could tell the truth. 

A short list of some examples:

Phil Noble is president of the S.C. New Democrats

Noble column: Let’s do something great with state’s $21.5 million

 

We’ve all seen the advertisements for the TV lawyers promising big bucks if we sign up with them on some big class-action suit for mesothelioma or asbestos or some other product or medical liability case.

Time to love country more than Obama

I would like to respond to Michael Jedson’s letter, “Facts, without the whining and ranting,” in the Feb. 1 edition of The Lancaster News.

Why do Democrats and supporters keep repeating talking points and calling them facts when anyone who can add two plus two or use the Internet can debunk these myths?

I apologize in advance if this sounds like an insult, it is not my intention to disparage you personally, but your so-called facts would be almost laughable if they were not so tragic for so many in this country.

What is J.R. Wilt’s solution to criminal justice problem?

I must be suffering from some new eyesight malady. Despite peering at it quite carefully, squinting mightily and blinking several times, I could not find in the Feb. 11 column of J.R. Wilt any proposed solution.

I know it must be there, because certainly Mr. Wilt did not write in simply to complain.
