  • Dr. Adams left a true legacy

    Dr. Ira Adams was certainly unforgettable. I went to his dental office when I was in my teens and I still remember it well. Not being fond of any dental office, it always terrified me when he came to the waiting room door and spoke the famous words, “Does anybody have one to be pulled?”
    I guess he wanted to make sure everyone understood what he said, because he always repeated, “Does anybody have one to be pulled?” I didn’t mind at all waiting on those who needed a tooth pulled, because I was not anxious for my turn to come anyway.

  • Woman kept husband and all but two teeth

    I came home from my honeymoon early because of a nasty toothache and Dr. Ira Adams pulled a bottom wisdom tooth for me. He pulled the other bottom wisdom tooth out the following week.
    Dr. Adams would say, “I’m not sure I ate all my Wheaties this morning to get the job done.” But he always did a beautiful job of pulling them.
    That was 36 years ago and I still have all of my other teeth and kept my husband, too.
    Dr. Adams was a good dentist.

  • Dr. Adams good at calming fear of dentists

    When I was growing up, my family went to Dr. Ira Adams for dental work. I thought he was the best dentist. One time my mother asked my wife and me to go with her to Dr. Adams’ office with her. She needed about four teeth pulled and she was scared.
    When Dr. Adams called her back to the room, my mother asked him if it would hurt very much.
    “No ma’am, you won’t feel a thing,” he said.
    The last time I saw him was in a fast-food store. He loved to joke and cut up.

  • Dr. Adams gave so much of his time and talent

    Dr. Ira Adams was a good, caring and giving person. I know a lot of people who had fillings, cleanings and partials they didn’t pay a cent for. He gave of his time and talent, time and time again. He was a good friend to so many people.
    Dr. Adams loved flowers and he shared them as well. It wasn’t unusual for people to come out on a Sunday morning to find a big bunch of Gladiolas on the hoods of their cars.
    I often went by to see if Dr. Adams was in his yard at his office. He always had a new flower to show me. He was always working in his flowers.

  • Florida jury failed justice for Caylee

    In all professions, there are some who are excellent, most who are average, and some who are not-so-good. As we have viewed the justice for Caylee in the Florida court, we have witnessed some of the worst on the Casey Anthony defense team.
    The purpose of this criminal trial was to provide justice for Caylee. Under our Constitution and general statutes, it is important for all to understand that all accused of crime are innocent until proven guilty. All trial witnesses and evidence must be open and honest.

  • Dr. Adams shared garden, stories, dreams with resident

    I work at the information office in Kershaw for the Haile Gold Mine. My dad from Tennessee passed away last Christmas.   
    Immediately after, Dr. Ira Adams began coming to visit me. I only wish I had told him how much I enjoyed his visits. He reminded me so much of my dad, how he talked of his gardening. He would come through the door with a bag of collards. He was the one who introduced us to the South Carolina greens.

  • Lame-stream media fails

    What a gang of hypocrites the liberals are. Lets start with golf. When George W. Bush was president, the liberal left couldn’t bash him enough for going golfing so much. President Barack Obama, “the anointed one,” has hit the greens more in his first two years than Bush did in his eight years. Not much from the lame-stream media on this.

  • Bottom-feeding journalism's fall can't come fast enough

    The crumbling of Rupert Murdoch’s media empire is a huge boon to mankind worldwide. Imagine that God-awful propaganda machine that redefines bottom-feeding for conservatives and idiots (same thing) silenced. All Fox, NY Post, Wall Street Journal, many others internationally, all gone.

  • We are losing our freedom just a little at a time

    I wish to comment on the letter from Dianne Dowdler, “Dog owner should not be penalized.” I agree with you, you just didn’t go far enough. Everyone has a passion.
    If you take these animals from Lawrence Sherrill, you might as well just kill him along with his dogs. You will have killed his spirit. The dogs are his family, companions and friends.
    A recent article said the animal shelter kills between 25 to 35 cats and dogs per week. This is America – this should not be happening here.

  • Blackmon-Brace to share her business acumen

    As a woman, I know only too well how few tributes are made to women in our mostly male-oriented business arena.
    I learned recently that a local, female, public servant, whom I personally respect for her many years of service in our communities, was offered an opportunity that most women can only dream of.
    A group of professional women from Myrtle Beach, aptly named Phenomenal Women, requested this phenomenal woman, out of many candidates, to honor them by speaking at a seminar that extols the business acumen of women in a male-dominated arena.
