  • Time to remove Confederate flag

    Imagine the year is 2039, which is 100 years since Germany invaded Poland to start a second world war.

    To commemorate the anniversary, the German Republic decides to fly a flag emblazoned with a swastika on its capitol grounds. They say the flag is a symbol of their heritage and it is flying for all German soldiers and civilians who died during the war.

  • Nightmare becomes reality

    A simple night of fun turns into the worst nightmare for a mother. While documenting a short film, “Vision of Home,” Dekeem O. Reed’s mother, Alice Blackmon Tillman, showed the filming crew a picture she bought her son years before he was murdered.

    The picture, which is still hanging in Dekeem’s room today, shows a young African-American boy kneeling beside his bed praying. Behind the boy is a beautiful African-American woman, who appears as an angel.

  • Family grateful for assistance

    We would like to give a special thank you to the gentleman who helped comfort my wife after her fall Sunday morning at Las Mariachis Mexican Restaurant.

    I would also like to thank the restaurant staff and Lancaster EMS for their help.

    May God bless each one of you.

  • Officer helps local resident get refrigerator

    Several Saturdays ago I was having a yard sale. A sheriff’s deputy, whose name is Jason, pulled up and started talking to me.

    As we talked, I told Jason I would offer him a cold drink, but my refrigerator had gone out. He said I really needed to have a refrigerator and I told him I was going to get one when I got the money.

    He asked me my name and I told him.

  • LCPR grateful for fair support

    Lancaster County Parks and Recreation is grateful for all the vendors and donations given to support our career fair, held June 15 at Buford Recreation Center. The career fair could not have been possible without them.

    We cannot thank the vendors and businesses enough. They are the reason the career fair was such a success.

  • Make sure prescriptions are filled correctly

    I would like to warn people to make sure their medications are being filled properly. I have had several incidents where my prescriptions had incorrect dosages – at different pharmacies. You need to check your prescriptions – not once, but twice – and make sure they are correct.

    It is a common practice now to send prescriptions to pharmacies via a computer. But even that doesn’t always work. I’ve stood beside the doctor as he sent the prescription and yet the pharmacy said it never got the order.

  • S.C. jobs are in jeopardy

    For more than 50 years, Morrison Textile Machinery has been a major employer in the Lancaster County area, a region that is growing at a rapid pace.

    Lancaster is the fastest-growing county in South Carolina and the 26th fastest in the United States. York County is the fourth fastest-growing in the state and 68the fastest in the United States.

  • Focus on victims’ families, then on Confederate flag

    I would like to start by saying that I am disappointed that the conversation in South Carolina – largely driven by those outside our state – has been focused on a flag, rather than the victims of a heinous crime and their courageous and forgiving families.

    While I always welcome debate on a divisive issue, I prefer that debate not come on the heels of a tragedy before the victims have even been laid to rest.
