  • Steve Epps, a ‘true American hero’

    Two weeks ago, we lost a pillar of our community with the passing of Mr. Bill Kimbrell. On Jan. 31, we lost a true American hero with the passing of Mr. Steve Epps Sr.

    However, since Mr. Epps lived most of his life in the Lancaster and Chester communities, I would like to share a little about another native son of Fort Mill.

  • Give money to people, let them stimulate the economy

    Dear President Obama,

    Regarding the stimulus package: Why not give every legal American $20,000 each? No one gets money directly in to the economy faster than the American people will – 350 million people times $20,000 = $700 billion. That is less than $800 billion. Considering that we are the ones who will have to pay for it, it sounds like a more reasonable solution and viable.
