  • Whose fault is this mess?

    Phil Noble and I see a lot of the same problems. According to him, it is the Republicans fault for all the problems. In the absence of facts, there can be no true reality. Only ideology.

    It does not take a lot to keep the mind of the average American occupied- a ball game on TV or maybe Idol and snacks.

    There is no or very little cognitive discourse any where. It is not politically correct. When some discourse does happen, truth is generally left out and feelings are most important.

  • Find peaceful ways to make a statement

    So much turmoil, so many demonstrations. Must be a young folks thing. Seems to me that young folks never really fought for anything, but they have strong opinions on what’s going wrong.

    Sure as shooting, we have some rotten apples who hide behind a badge and when the truth comes out, they need to be jailed or fired.

    No demonstration is ever peaceful. The property of others has to be looted or burned under the guise of making a statement.

  • Campaign cash for criminal defense? Please.

    You wouln’t have expected a meeting of the House Ethics and FOIA Ad Hoc Study Committee to be a good show. But it was.

    Most of the meeting was taken up by Rep. Ralph Norman (R-York) contending for stronger language in a committee proposal. The majority of members didn’t care for the stronger language, and eventually things started to crackle.

  • Roscoe wins fourth state championship

    “No, it can’t be done.” This was the expected comment from football fans when they learned that coach Johnny Roscoe was enticed to come out of his one-year retirement to try to bring another state football championship to the Greensboro, N.C., Northern Gilford Nighthawks.

    Coach Roscoe had already won three state championships his last three years of coaching, deserving a well-earned retirement.

    The three state championship made history, but the big question, could he do it again.

  • What goes around does come around

    Shucks, I was just standing in the grocery check-out line with several items in my buggy and I noticed a young man with a couple of things in his hand.

    Well, at my age, I don’t have too many urgent items on my agenda, so I suggested he go around me and not have to wait.

    Well sir, he thanked me before moving ahead and then he thanked me after checking out. I thought he was kind since some folks move on and move out.

  • Afraid for my own generation

    Afraid for

    my own

    generation

    Being 16 years old in 2014 has its benefits. I could not imagine living back in the technological “stone age,” so to speak, where not everyone owned TVs, computers or cell phones. However, there are far more bad things about growing up in this age than good. The human race, for the most part, seems to be going down the evolutionary ladder in terms of intellect. Probably more than half of my generation does not understand vital things that they need to know to be productive members of society.

  • New resident loves Indian Land’s name

    Indian Land resident Jane Tanner has suggested that maybe Van Wyck could annex Indian Land. She said residents find the name “Indian Land” unattractive.

    But you are so wrong.

    I love the name Indian Land for my town. I moved here a short time ago and love the name better than plain old Fort Mill.

    Don’t say we find it unattractive, because not everyone does. I love the name and am proud to live in Indian Land.

  • Precious baby made a difference in the world

    Just think what would this world be without that precious baby?

    He made the blind to see, the lame to walk.

    That precious baby walked on water.

    That precious baby turned water into wine and fed the multitudes.

    That precious baby died for our sins.

    That precious baby, yes, his name is Jesus.

    Yes, what would this world have been without that precious baby?

  • Be sure body cameras don’t have restrictions

    The massive public reaction to the tragic deaths of three black teens at the hand of white police officers has led to a national call for use of body cameras to record and prevent any future mistreatment of suspects.

    There is ample precedent. Animal protection activists have used body cameras to document egregious atrocities and safety violations by workers in the meat, dairy and egg industries.

    The resulting videos have led to a number of corrective actions, as well as felony convictions, meat recalls, and even a $500 million civil settlement.

  • Possum Hollow resident likes name of road

    I would like to thank Susan Ferrara for saying she “liked the name Indian Land.”

    I just cannot understand why someone like Jane Tanner or anyone moving into a new neighborhood or another state would complain about the name of a road or neighborhood that has had a name for many many years. I cannot imagine doing that.

    In 2013, our Sen. Greg Gregory in his Spring Legislative Report wrote: SCDOT is moving forward with widening of S.C. 160 between Springfield Parkway in Fort Mill and the unfortunately named Possum Hollow Road.
