• Writer challenges Jedson’s ‘facts’ about Obama

    Wow, I’m at a loss for words in response to Michael Jedson’s Feb. 1 letter, “Facts, without the whining and ranting.”

    I mean the way you defend what is arguably the worst performing six years of economic history in America. Where have you been for six years?

  • President continues to slander Americans

    At the National Prayer Breakfast, President Barack Obama, in again defending Islam, compared actions of Islam to things done “in the name of Christ.” He babbled about the Crusades, in Inquisition, slavery and Jim Crow laws. The president needs a history lesson, other than from his past communist mentor,

    The Crusades were a defensive Christian reaction against the Muslim attack on Jerusalem, and the wholesale killing of Christians in Europe and Africa. Sound familiar?

  • Kershaw fortunate to have a farmers market

    The Kershaw Chamber of Commerce would like to thank all the vendors at the farmers market, who participate weekly and more at the area below the Kershaw Fire Department. We started out allowing only produce and plants to be displayed and sold there. But the vendors got skimpier and skimpier, so we decided to allow yard sale vendors, also.

    It has been amazing at how this has become a place of fellowship, friendliness and a coming together of our town and community. It is really the place to be on Saturday mornings.

  • Writer challenges Jedson’s letter

    It was appropriate to publish Michael Jedson’s letter (and super pile of propaganda,) “Facts, without the whining and ranting,” on Super Bowl Sunday. There is enough no-fact information there to tax even Snopes’ capability. Even Phil Noble could not match this pile of falsehoods.

  • Beware of falling gas prices

    As I am, I’m sure you’re excited about falling gas prices. But I have to warn you, it won’t last long. And it will cost us, all of us more in the end.

  • Community makes Shoebox for Seniors a success

    I would like to give a special thanks to all of the churches, schools, organizations and individuals that participated in the Shoebox for Senior’s project in December 2014.

    This project, sponsored by the Lancaster County Council on Aging, continues to grow more and more each year. The gifts that we receive are sent out to our home-delivered meal clients and if there are enough gifts we also give gifts to our group dining clients.

  • A different view of Lancaster on Christmas Day

    My sons and their families visited me before Christmas Day, so on Christmas morning I decided I would eat at a local restaurant.

    I went to several – JoMars, Gus’, Arby’s – they all were closed.

    The North Main Shopping Center was empty. There was only one car in the Walmart parking lot.

    Then I saw where both McDonald’s and Hardee’s were open.

  • Your help makes bicycle ministry a success

    We truly thank each and everyone of you who played a part in bringing so many smiles and miracles to 78 children and 38 families this past Christmas through Gonzie’s Miracle Bike Ministry.

    Each year, we experience and personally witness many touching stories to share.

    I try to the best of my ability to treat folks fair and honest and to have open arms whenever there is a need to meet.

    Take this one, for example: Before Christmas, one family member who came by the shop and “wanted” five “new” bicycles.

  • Correction

    Indian Land resident Cecil Sexton said in his Feb. 4 letter that Lancaster County did a “lousy job” on some road repair at the corner of U.S. 521 and River Road.

    Lancaster County Administrator Steve Willis said the county is not responsible for either road.

    Jeff Catoe, Lancaster County Public Works director, said the cut was a “utility cut” and that the S.C. Department of Transportation told the utility provider that the stone placed in the cut was unacceptable.
