  • Creating jobs top priority

    If you travel early mornings on White Street during the work week, you can see them. Dawn has barely faded and they’re already lined up, waiting for the doors to open to the S.C. Employment Security Commission.

  • We should show support for our local congressman

    As I wander around our area (the Panhandle and Lancaster), listening and talking to all different types of people, I am coming across a universal thread of discontent. Some of it legitimate (based on the wants and needs of the individual), some just complaining.
    It’s time that we put aside our allegiances to party, etc., and remember that we are Americans first. The labels that we all seem to love are just getting in the way.

  • Country ham a true jewel of the South

    Some things don’t need fixing and can’t be improved on.

    Take country ham, for instance.

    I’ll wager your mouth is watering right now. 

    To me, country ham is the ultimate ingredient of Southern cuisine. Molasses finishes a close second.

    Forget the macaroni and cheese, peanut butter and jelly, meatloaf and mashed ’taters. I’ll take country ham every time.

  • A brand new No. 9

    HEATH SPRINGS – Don’t tell Patrick Helms that Thanksgiving is still 37 days away.

    Helms, fire chief at Heath Springs Volunteer Fire Department, will argue that point. And after opening the doors at the new fire station on Sunday afternoon, there may be some validity to Helms’ claim that Thanksgiving came early for the residents of the county’s smallest municipality.

    “This belongs to the town. It’s not ours; it belongs to the people,” Helms said.
