Today's Opinions

  • Thumbs up for sheriff’s fee district

    My wife and I moved to Indian Land six years ago because of a job transfer and found a wonderful home in the BridgeHampton neighborhood. 

    We really like it here, but have been concerned about the increasing crime rate over the last couple of years, so I was pleased to read the article about Sheriff Barry Faile’s plans to beef up law enforcement coverage in our area.

  • Soils of earth also represent various people

    According to the gospels of Matthew, Mark and Luke, on a day when many people from many cities in Galilee gathered to hear Jesus speak, he taught them the parable of the sower and his seed.

    In those days, a farmer tied a bag of seed around his neck and then walked through his plowed fields scattering seed with his hand.

  • Springmaid Beach holds so many memories

    Thousands of former Springs employees visited Springmaid Beach located in the boondocks of an earlier-thriving Myrtle Beach known for its Pavilion and concentration of amusement rides, which lured mostly working folks for a weekend or the entire week during plant shutdown.

    Like a coin, Myrtle Beach was on one side and everyone and everything was on the other side. Gosh, it was a place to just let it all hangout and toss cares to the wind.

  • Obama opens himself up for criticisms

    Anyone who is familiar with my writings/ranting, knows that I have been critical of President Barack Obama.

    I do not apologize for my criticisms, because I feel they are justified. President Obama opens himself up for criticism through his behavior, and more often, his speech.

  • Free speech does not exist in Islam

    I recently saw another “Coexist” bumper sticker. The car had an Obama/Biden sticker, also. The news from France and around the world proves that Muslims do not believe, teach or practice this motto.

    The driver of that car has deceived herself by any attempt to believe that motto. That person has placed herself at a severe disadvantage with the Muslims. She believes something that is not true and will not happen. It is the feeling that matters.

  • Rural mail will suffer with more mail plant closures

    A friend of mine from South Dakota noted that the U.S. Postal Service delivered a lump of coal to many small towns last Christmas when it proceeded to eliminate overnight mail in most of the nation in 2015. That was a good description.

    USPS will slow delivery officially by one day for first-class and periodicals mail. Many members of Congress have asked it to hold off. But USPS is plowing ahead.

    It is time for lawmakers to consider how rural and small town mail is suffering.

  • Noble twisted facts to defend Obama

    This is my first letter of the new year and my New Year’s wish didn’t come true. I wished that all liberals would be sent to an island up near Greenland, where they could sit around a campfire and blame former President George W. Bush for all that is wrong in their lives. Well, maybe next year.

  • Hebdo murders remind us that free speech isn’t cheap

    Journalists did not need the atrocity of the attack on Charlie Hebdo in Paris to know that ours is a risky business. But it has made the rest of the world aware of the price of exercising free speech.
