  • Column: S.C. moving in right direction on race

    In the early days of World War II, the British, standing nearly alone, suffered a number of huge defeats. And then in November 1942, they won a major victory defeating Gen. Rommel’s forces in North Africa.

  • Column: We don’t need the disaffected

    Is there a point in everyone’s life where you just sit back and say, “Enough is enough?”

  • Column: Tanner responds to Evans’ column

    I just want to let Dianne Evans, who serves on the Lancaster County Library Board, know that I believe rules need to be applied and followed. (Evans wrote the column, “Some think rules don’t apply to them,” in last week’s Gateway.)
    What many residents don’t realize is that all the county boards and commissions are different and, therefore, their rules need to be written accordingly.

  • Column: Lancaster County has best government money can buy

    “We have the best government that money can buy.” Was Mark Twain a resident of Lancaster County? I don’t think so, but at times his famous quote seems to fit our system of government.
    Here are but two examples:
    ◆ You may recall this past December when an out-of-state developer was caught violating the laws of Lancaster County. Those laws, adopted in 2007, were to protect the endangered natural habitat of the Carolina heelsplitter mussel on Six Mile Creek.
