  • Pastor's wife a real asset to church

    We recently celebrated Pastor’s Appreciation Day at Lynwood Drive Church of God. I love our pastor, Johnny Hefner, very much. He is a very good man and is always there when you need him no matter day or night. He is a very caring man and lets Jesus be No. 1 in his life. I know he knows how much we appreciate him and the life he lives for Jesus.

  • Don’t take our freedom for granted

    I am a native South Carolinian who normally sits back and observes what is going on around him. But this past Memorial Day morning as I sat at my computer watching the sun slowly creep up, I was inspired to speak my mind about the goings on of this great county we live in.

    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.

  • Kersey listens and addresses residents' issues

    I am supporting the reelection of Wayne Kersey for Lancaster County Council District 7. I personally have known Wayne and his wife, Faye, for most of my adult years. We attended and were members together for many years at Antioch Baptist Church.

    His son and wife are members and a vital part of our Sunday school and church family at Covenant Baptist Church. I also patronize their businesses.

  • Air show operates at loss of $75,000

    While the Palmetto Thunder Air Show may have provided satisfying entertainment to many at the Lancaster County Airport on May 17 and 18, it didn't bring in the money organizers had hoped.

    In fact, it operated at a deficit of $75,000.

    Most of that came from a $60,000 shortfall in expected ticket revenue, with $64,000 coming in versus the $120,000 to $125,000 projected. The cost of fuel at the airport was also $15,000 more than expected, largely due to the increased cost of fuel since the air show budget was created.
