  • Column: Dare to be like Daniel

    Believers in Christ should consider the life of Daniel. Taken captive to Babylon by King Nebuchadnezzar, he and his three friends were chosen to learn the Babylonian culture and language so they could serve at the royal court.

    But when Nebuchadnezzar ordered they be given the royal food and drink, Daniel asked they might be granted an exemption. He knew that the king’s food had been offered first to idols, and that some of it violated their strict Mosaic food laws. 

  • Haley’s farewell message: I’ll be back

    Editor’s note: Gov. Nikki Haley delivered her seventh – and probably final – State of the State Address on Wednesday. Donald Trump has nominated her as his U.N. ambassador, and she awaits Senate confirmation. Here are excerpts.

  • Elementary to see Watson was extraordinary

    In the wee hours of Tuesday morning on the heels of Clemson dethroning
    Alabama for the College Football Playoff National Championship, my thoughts went back to Christmas Eve, 2013.
    That day I recall buying a USA Today, which in that holiday edition focused on college football recruiting.
    In the issue, I remember reading about a Clemson University football recruit named Deshaun Watson, considered the nation’s top dual threat quarterback.

  • Column: TOIL leaders should be more transparent

    In order to assess recent statements and representations by Voters for a Town of Indian Land, several of us residents have asked TOIL leaders for a detailed, line-by-line budget for a town of Indian Land.
    This basic information has been requested repeatedly, but never has been forthcoming. It has been requested via multiple sources: e.g., in face-to-face meetings, e-mail, through the Indian Land Action Council and through social media. I have the e-mail chain to verify these requests.
