  • Present every day for 12 years of school

    A friendly rivalry kept two Buford High School seniors going to school each and every day.

    It wasn't to achieve the highest grade point average or the best scores in sports.

    It was literally to come to school each day.

    Buford High's Joseph Morris and James Ellis, both 18, are the only two 2008 graduates in the Lancaster County School District to achieve 12 years of perfect attendance.

    "My mother made me go to school," said Morris, the son of Libby and Joey Morris. "So I can't take full credit for it. I don't get sick."

    I don’t want to cause trouble but as a son of a Vietnam veteran, the grandson of a World War II veteran, the great nephew of several uncles who were stationed at Pearl Harbor that December morning, I would like for people to stop and think long and hard before heading into the voting booth this November.

  • Candidates should go extra mile for their constituents

    My name is Bruce Miller and I am, in my opinion, the only Republican candidate for the S.C. House of Representatives District 45 seat. Also, in my opinion, I only have one Democratic opponent, Donald Huffman.

    You may ask why I am making such a bold statement, when everyone knows there is one other Republican and two additional Democrats who have filed for this position.

    I pose one important question – where are they?

    I am upset and disturbed by the seeming lack of concern shown by the other, unnamed candidates.
