  • Fletcher column: Woman seeks to help county’s homeless

    My name is Chaundra Fletcher. I am a member of North Corner AME Zion Church in Lancaster. I am very active in social activities that involve the homeless, hungry and children.
    I have worked in social services for the last eight years. During this time, I have learned much about the abuse and neglect of children, as well as victimization of women. I have also learned much about poverty.
    It seems that the laws continue to change without any regard to those who are less fortunate. I would dare to say that many people today would be considered working poor.

  • Sistare letter: ‘Remember When’ a huge success

    Well, they did it again! The Always Ready Emergency Troupe’s Variety and Comedy Show “Remember When” was a huge success!

  • Hopkins letter: ‘Facts speak for themselves’

    The Feb. 25 rebuttal letter by James McManus, “Walker should run for vice president,” to Brooks Walkers’ Feb. 22 column, “Time to love country more than Obama,” is pathetic.
    Because he has no facts on his side, Mr. McManus uses the old leftist alternative of vilifying anyone who disagrees with Obama as “hating the president.”
    He says, “We can argue about the economy, employment and terrorism.”

  • O'Neal column: Advice to last a lifetime

    I am writing today in honor of one of your former residents, Royce Stewart. Royce departed this life on Feb. 12, 2015. He and spouse Lavonia have been residents of Kershaw since the early 1990s. Our hearts are saddened by his loss and hope that Lavonia finds comfort through the support of family, friends and the community.

  • Yow column: House passes responsible budget without new borrowing

    I am glad to report that Northeastern Technical College is set to receive $2.3 million in funding for a new industrial training center in Pageland and other needs as the S.C. House of Representatives sends its completed budget to the Senate.
    After meeting with NETC officials and industry leaders in Pageland, it was apparent that a new training facility was urgently needed to address the present and future demands for skilled employees in District 53.

  • Henderson letter: Celebrate spring by going meatless

    After a month of persistent and crippling snowstorms, I do look forward to spring weather, green grass and flowers in bloom.
    The advent of spring is also a great opportunity to turn over a new leaf on our dietary habits. In fact, hundreds of communities welcome spring on March 20 with an observance of the Great American Meatout.
    Participants are asked to go vegan, at least for the day, and to explore a healthy diet of vegetables, fresh fruits, legumes and grains.

  • O'Connor column: It’s time to get rid of ‘shadow government’

    The controversy encircling former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and her use of private email to conduct public business provides our latest example of government in the shadows, a situation we know well in South Carolina.
    “Shadow government,” as S.C. Press Association Executive Director Bill Rogers has labeled it, means conducting public business via private emails, texts, Twitter or other social media accounts that are not connected to government servers and thus not retrievable by government agencies and the public.
