  • Letter: Let’s all unite in conservation

    I am 8 years old and in the third grade at SC Connections Academy. We are studying conservation in South Carolina.
    It is important to turn off lights so that we can save energy. Recycling plastic water bottles is good for the environment. Also remember that planting trees is good for our health. It is beautiful too.
    I am proud to be a South Carolinian. Don’t waste God’s resources. Thank you.

  • Letter: You name it, Hillary’s blaming it

    As if the country hasn’t had enough of the Clintons’ narcissistic need for the limelight, we are now deluged with the “why I lost” book campaign of Hillary Clinton.
    She’s making sure she hits all the liberal news channels, which will never ask any important or meaningful questions. You name it, she’s blaming it.

  • Letter: Business owner goes extra mile

    In our society these days, people are always harping on the negative, so I want to share a story about something good in our community.
    Mr. Mike Gilmore is the owner of the UPS Store in Lancaster, and I utilize his store’s services often. At the beginning of August, I shipped my son a nice pendant and necklace, but the package was lost in the warehouse in Tennessee. When I realized my son did not receive his package, I contacted the UPS Store in Lancaster, and they investigated the matter.

  • Letter: Rosemont residents: Pick better site for post office in IL

    Editor’s note: This letter was sent to Kurtis Bullard, the Postal Service official tasked with locating Indian Land’s new post office. Bullard has suggested a site near the neighborhood’s entrance.

    We are writing to you on behalf of the Rosemont Owners Association. The Rosemont community is located off Highway 160 and Rosemont Drive in Indian Land, S.C.
    We would like to request that you find a different location for the proposed 15,000-square-foot USPS facility off Rosemont Drive.

  • Letter: Patriotism thrives in Indian Land

    In a time when political, racial and cultural tension abounds, it is rare to hear of two community groups from different generations and backgrounds coming together to honor our nation’s veterans.
    The Ladies Auxiliary from the Capt. John P. Monahan VFW Post from Indian Land came to teach the American Heritage Girls of Our Lady of Grace Catholic Church proper flag care and ceremonial etiquette.
    The girls demonstrated what they’ve learned at the Veteran’s Flag Ceremony on Saturday, Sept. 16, at Our Lady of Grace.

  • Letter: Bus-stop safety an urgent priority

    In 2013, I wrote the following in a letter to the editor:
    “Every school day, my daughter and I stand in the dark near the end of the driveway and watch her bus come to a stop on the opposite side of the road.

  • Letter: Bannon ignores history’s realities

    During Sunday’s “60 Minutes” interview, President Trump’s former chief strategist Steve Bannon gave his spin on “economic nationalism.” Here is mine.
    Mr. Bannon is correct that America’s 19th century expansion was guided by American citizens, although many of those citizens were immigrants or close descendants of immigrants.

  • Letter: Don’t join a gang, join the Marines

    I have never seen so many young men in Lancaster city and county being out-and-out murdered – some by their own friends. I am 73 years old, and my goodness life is changing for the worse.
    It seems like you are joining gangs to be in a “family.” What about your own mamas? You are breaking their hearts. What has happened to make you want to destroy everything good and kind? Drugs? Do you have a death wish?

  • Letter: Alzheimer’s disease research needs additional funding

    According to the Alzheimer’s Association, more than 5 million Americans are living with Alzheimer’s disease, including 86,000 here in South Carolina.

    In 2017, caring for individuals living with Alzheimer’s or other dementias will cost $259 billion – including $175 billion in direct costs to Medicare and Medicaid.
