Today's Opinions

  • What is J.R. Wilt’s solution to criminal justice problem?

    I must be suffering from some new eyesight malady. Despite peering at it quite carefully, squinting mightily and blinking several times, I could not find in the Feb. 11 column of J.R. Wilt any proposed solution.

    I know it must be there, because certainly Mr. Wilt did not write in simply to complain.

  • 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?

  • Senate rules trump all?

    Stop me if you’ve heard this excuse before.

  • SC State: Fix it, don’t kill it

    Let’s begin with the obvious: South Carolina State is a mess. No, it’s way beyond a mess; it is on life support and its very existence is in grave danger.

    But it can be fixed and, in fact, the solution is fairly straightforward. It’s not rocket science; if GM can go from the brink of extinction to making a profit in less than 24 months, then SC State’s problems can be solved.

  • Coalition presents update on reducing DUI initiative

    Recently, the Coalition for Healthy Youth presented an update on the “Take U Out of DUI” initiative that began in Lancaster May 2013, in conjunction with local law enforcement agencies.

    These detailed presentations charting the impact of the 18-month-long project were made to local elected officials at Lancaster County and City councils, and Lancaster County School District Board meetings.

  • 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.
