    Unless you’ve been in a deep, deep sleep, you have a good grasp on USC’s super Sunday.

  • Column: Sen. Courson’s shocking indictment

    Last Thursday, state Sen. John Courson was indicted by a state grand jury on three ethics charges. He was immediately suspended from the Senate.
    The indictment alleges that the Columbia Republican funneled nearly $250,000 in campaign contributions to the political consulting firm of Richard Quinn and Associates, which then returned almost $133,000 to Courson for his personal use.
    The reaction around the state has been universal shock and disbelief.

  • Column: Let’s count all the ways Trump is getting off to a terrible start

    This is a response to the Feb. 10 letter “Trump Will Make America Great Again.”
    When I hear that statement, I can’t help but wonder what is wrong with America now? If our great country is so bad, why do people flock to this land for better opportunities.
    Most of us know someone who was been overseas protecting our way of life. Some of our daddies fought in Vietnam and a lot of our granddaddies fought the Nazis and Japanese in World War II.

    This is a response to Dr. L. Brooks Walker’s March 17 article “Democrats are redefining the party.”
    He wrote: “Democratic representatives in Washington have set aside their elected responsibilities to adopt one goal – ‘get Trump.’ They don’t seem interested in legislating, only blocking whatever might be credited to Trump in a positive way.”
    Has President Trump done anything positive in his first 50 days? Nothing I know of.
