  • Letter: Several reasons to vote for Archie Parnell

    Republican Ralph Norman and Democrat Archie Parnell are running for Mick Mulvaney’s vacated 5th District congressional seat.
    Special elections for Congress in Kansas, Montana and Georgia have gotten much national attention, but the S.C. race has not. Why? Because the 5th District is considered “safe” by the Republicans, and the Democrats see it as unwinnable.

  • Letter: Norman will continue Mulvaney’s good work

    Joseph DelMaster’s anti-Trump diatribe on Wednesday’s opinion page, his excuse for supporting Archie Parnell for Congress, was mostly ridiculous and false.
    He parrots stale Democratic propaganda about President Trump being an embarrassment in the world, with nothing to back it up.
    DelMaster asks if we are prepared to send a new Republican to Congress? We did with Mick Mulvaney, and this voter is well prepared to continue his excellent legacy. Voters did just choose Trump, so yes we are prepared to elect those who will support our choice.

  • Letter: Why I support Archie Parnell

    I will vote for Archie Parnell for Congress on Tuesday, and I hope you will do the same.
    Parnell believes that if you paid into Social Security and Medicare, you have earned it. He will stand up for families and defend health care and Medicare.

  • Letter: Norman voted against homeowners on HOA board

    Does your housing development have a homeowner’s association?  If so, read this.
    U.S. House District 5 candidate Ralph Norman is a real estate developer and politician. In the S.C. House, he opposed all bills that would allow residents on HOA boards during building. He said that you had to wait until the last house was sold.
    That might result in homeowners not understanding community problems and/or expenses until after the developer leaves.That seems unfair.

  • Letter: Parnell ‘truly qualified candidate’

    We are fortunate in the 5th District of South Carolina to have the opportunity to send a truly qualified candidate to Washington to represent us.  
    Democrat Archie Parnell was born and raised in South Carolina, and received his law degree from USC. He cares what happens to the people of our state. He is an accomplished attorney who served in the Justice Department in Washington before working for many years in business, consulting on tax compliance issues with large, international companies.

  • Letter: Disappointed with coverage of incorporation forum

    I had the pleasure to attend the “town” meeting regarding the incorporation of Indian Land at Transformation Church a couple of weeks ago.
    I was pleased to see your headline indicating that your reporter had attended the meeting.
    However, I was displeased to see that the coverage was of poor quality and did not take the opportunity to provide the public with the information that was so well presented by the committee representing those persons who support the incorporation of Indian Land.

  • Letter: Readers’ reaction to Noble and AARP columns

    Concerning Friday’s editorial page, obviously we already knew who Democrat Phil Noble was backing. My reaction to his latest diatribe is that we do not need yet another divisive Democrat in Congress. Period.
    As to AARP official Patrick Cobb’s column, we have not forgotten that AARP, a Medicare supplement seller, backed the Obamacare scam. We have not forgotten that the ACA wants to steal $800 billion of senior’s Medicare payments to support their health insurance scam. Subsidies to those making over $120,000 per year is pure vote-buying.

  • Letter: Tribute to those who died for us

    A lot of men and women have given their lives for the red, white and blue.
    To those who have made the ultimate sacrifice for our nation fighting under that flag, and to all the others who served with them, and to all of their families, this country thanks you.
    God bless these brave people, and God bless America.

  • Letter: Lancaster County civics course well worth the investment

    I am a recent graduate of the 2017 Learning Lancaster Civics Course provided by Lancaster County.
    This course was educational, enjoyable and overall a great experience. I have learned so much regarding Lancaster County – how it works, where and how it spends our tax dollars, and what services it offers.

  • Letter: I oppose president on ending loan forgiveness for teachers

    I am a public school special education teacher. This month President Trump revealed he wants to cut public education funding and to end the Loan Forgiveness Plan for Teachers who teach in high-need areas and in high-need schools.
    I do not think it is acceptable to end this program when over 500,000 public employees are about to receive our forgiveness during the next fiscal year. The program was started in order to recruit more teachers and to combat the rising cost of higher education.
