  • One day lawn mower thief will be caught

    To the brave team who took the John Deere mower from our yard, you should be ashamed. If you knew us, you would not have taken from us. We would have given you the shirt from our backs, but you would have known that, had you known us.

  • Writer doesn't like dog tethering bill

    I just read that the dog tethering bill passed the S.C. Senate. I am absolutely livid.

    How dare so many responsible dog owners be lumped into a bill that is geared to reduce dogfighting. This is totally against my rights. I understand that the government wants to rid the state of dogfighting, but this is unconstitutional.

    What about all of us who tether our dogs during the day and release them all night to guard our livestock? What about all of us who have our hunting dogs on trolley systems until the hunt? These are loved working dogs.

  • Don't leave victims in dark

    Can you name one person who has not been exposed to some type of violence? In today’s society it is normal for all of us to be exposed to some type of violence.

    Violence is displayed in or outside of your home. It is depicted through television, video games or simple everyday living. There is no escaping it.

  • Other Voices to give free concert tonight

    When Jackie Welch sings Ray Charles' classic song "Night Time is the Right Time," there's a cool left-to-right snap routine that allows her to really get into the song.

    And as Randy Roberts dances to "Whoomp! (There it is)," he never forgets to put his hands in the air to complement the energy infused in that 1990s rap tune.

    Members of the chorus group Other Voices gave it their all Tuesday evening during their final practice before a free concert the singing group will be staging tonight.

  • Cavs edge IL in district play

    Christ Church won a hard-fought battle to take a 2-1 extra-inning win over scrappy Indian Land to advance to the Class A Upper State championship baseball series on Wednesday night.

  • Council targets oldest profession with prostitution-free zones

    Prostitutes will have to peddle elsewhere if County Council declares the Brooklyn, Memorial Park and Midway areas as prostitution-free zones.

    County Administrator Steve Willis said he's spoken with Sheriff Johnny Cauthen and Chief Deputy Barry Faile about declaring those areas, where several prostitution arrests have been made in the past, as prostitution-exclusion zones.

    The city of Charlotte has prostitution-exclusion zones, Willis told council members.

  • Local support group helps Parkinson's patients

    KERSHAW – Harold Williams' hands sometimes tremble.

    It's a classic sign of Parkinson's disease, which Williams, 76, was diagnosed with 10 years ago.

    His Parkinson's condition is minor, but his symptoms were significant enough to affect his work as a barber. He retired from that business but stills oversees the car wash he owns in Kershaw.

    "I do just fine," Williams said. "But sometimes I get a little depressed."

  • Warriors down Lions for III-A soccer crown

    The Indian Land High School boys soccer team earned a measure of revenge in taking the Conference III-A title at Lancaster Memorial Stadium on Tuesday night.

  • Talking to roses not a thorny subject for Mary Daniels
  • Twitty deserves recognition

    Gonze Lee Twitty’s recent Pioneer Award from the NAACP is most fitting for a man who has put others first in his life of service.

    Twitty, 89, has lived a productive life of paving the way for others in need of a helping hand.

    “He’s been out there for a long time helping those who can’t help themselves,” said Charlene McGriff, second vice president of the local NAACP and a member of the committee which selected the winners.
