  • Column: Dominion offer is a costly payday loan

    You are being offered a payday loan. You will get a $1,000 check today. The only catch is that you will have to make payments over the next 20 years totaling $4,500. Do you take the deal?
    When you see something that looks too good to be true, it usually is. Make sure you read the fine print.
    This is the deal that Dominion Energy is offering SCANA (SCE&G) customers in its proposed purchase/merger of SCANA, the utility provider for a third of South Carolina.

  • Column: Dominion executive: Proposal to buy SCE&G is good for ratepayers

    The proposed partnership between South Carolina Electric & Gas and its parent company, SCANA, with Dominion Energy would benefit all South Carolinians. Once approved, the combination of the two companies would provide rate relief for customers, help community organizations, and protect thousands of jobs in the Palmetto State.
    This is good news for families and communities served by SCE&G, who have seen electric rates dramatically increase in recent years because of the unfinished nuclear power facility at V.C. Summer.

  • Column: U.S. in political civil war as Dems won’t accept election

    I believe America is in another civil war. There are no soldiers in the streets. There is no shooting yet, except in Democrat-controlled cities like Chicago and Baltimore. That is really just the nature of Democrat-controlled cities.
    Guns and shooting do not make a civil war. Politics makes a civil war. Guns are how a civil war ends when truth cannot be determined and agreed on by both parties.

  • Commentary: Memo no vindication for president
  • Column: Luckovich cartoons go too far

    I am disappointed in The Lancaster News for publishing some disrespectful cartoons by Mike Luckovich. I realize this man is a Pulitzer Prize winner and is nationally renowned, but that doesn’t excuse him for crossing the boundary of common decency.
    I’ve research hundreds of his cartoons and found that he predominantly attacks Republicans, Christians and especially the current president of the United States, Donald Trump.
