There are animal lovers, as well as animal haters, out there.
Animals have feelings like we do and they deserve to be loved and cared for, not abandoned and abused. It’s too bad that some people do not have the common sense to see this.
I am writing this in response to the article in the paper about the kittens that were tied up and thrown in the trash can at Walmart in Indian Land.
These reports really make me mad.

When Republicans gathered in Columbia last week, we celebrated last year’s victories – victories we worked together to achieve – and also talked face-to-face about what it means to be a Republican.
The Republican Party has a platform that defines its mission, but not all Republican elected officials follow every letter of the platform.
And that’s fine.
But what we’ve always said is that the people of our state deserve a government that works for them, not the other way around.
I moved to Sun City Carolina Lakes in Indian Land over the Christmas holiday. I found a morning group of guys who have a wealth of information about the area that I needed and wanted to know, so I joined them. Talk came around about needing a post office in our area.
So being me, I wrote a letter to our Congressman Mick Mulvaney. I hear he campaigned on wanting to serve the taxpayers of this area. Well, what I arrived at is we the people really need our own post office. The letter was written and mailed.
I’m sure Bill Ardrey’s April 29 letter to the editor, “Lancaster County needs sawmill,” opened eyes to the numerous benefits that a state-of-the-art lumber planing mill would have for Lancaster County.
Not only would it put hundreds of local people to work with high-paying jobs, it would benefit the local forest industry (the No. 1 industry in South Carolina) by giving them a higher price for their timber, without having to travel long distances to sell their timber.
The Indian Land Middle School sixth-grade Myrtle Beach trip was a great showing of kindness and caring.
First, I want to give sixth-grade teacher Cheryl Fleishman a big high-five for all her hard work. I also want to thank Marci Lail for all her great assistance. Thank you both for the great job.
We all had a great time, but on the way back home, one of our tour buses broke down. The buses pulled over into a church parking lot.
It was with great sadness I read the May 8 article regarding the shooting deaths of the three Chihuahuas.
As the owner of three long-coat Chihuahuas myself, I empathize with the owners of these dogs. Our dogs are our furry babies and want to spend every minute with us. Lapdogs they certainly are and the love they give is abundant.
I agree that anyone who could shoot innocent creatures is capable of other acts of violence.
I agree with Thomas Knapp’s column, “Constitutional convention dangerous and unnecessary,” in your April 17 paper.
Were our Congress thoughtful of where this country is headed and how we arrived at this unthinkable moment in history, I’d say let’s give it a try. However, the few who really care are far outnumbered by the power-hungry and narcissistic, and the ideology of America is rotten and racist.
Friday, May 1, is Law Day.
In 1958, President Dwight Eisenhower established Law Day to mark our nation’s commitment to the rule of law, a principle that sets us apart from many other countries around the world. Its designation underscores how law and the legal process have contributed to the freedoms that all Americans share.
Here we go again!
Isn’t it true that Lancaster County Economic Development Corp. President Keith Tunnell and his group of people have brought new business to Lancaster County? According to newspaper coverage, there seem to be a couple of Lancaster County Council members usually up in arms with the Economic Development folks.
As I recall, that Alliance 77 snafu involved groups across the river who were at odds with us. Come on now, does anyone seriously believe counties bordering Interstate 77 are really gonna help sway business to Lancaster?
The left loves to brand conservatives as fascists, yet in reality, in which the left doesn’t live, they are the fascists.
To understand this, draw a horizontal line on a paper. In the middle of that line draw a vertical line. That second line represents the middle between left and right (liberal and conservative).
Now starting from the middle line, go right about a third of the way and draw another vertical line. That line represents the Constitution.
If you went all the way to the right, that would be anarchy – no laws, anything goes.
