  • Column: The legacy of Charleston’s Joe Riley

    “Until the arrival of Joe Riley, Charleston was a sleepwalking, underachieving city with its eyes fastened on a past where its citizens began the most calamitous war in American history. The story of Joe Riley is the story of the renaissance of a city restored to greatness by the dauntless vision of a single man.”

  • Column: Exercise: Essential for brain as well as physical well-being

    In 1966 when I graduated from Presbyterian College, the United States was behind Russia in the space race. Russia had developed Sputnik, the first Earth satellite.
    The National Defense Education Act was funded, and a number of us received scholarships under this program so that psychologists could be educated and then sent into the community. The sole purpose of this law was to help identify gifted and talented science students so that the United States could catch up in the space race. Our country is currently behind internationally in science and math.

  • Letter: Trump displays wisdom

    Like most young men growing up, I had to endure a bunch of advice from my father.  To tell the truth, I should have listened carefully and followed his direction.
    Now, I sort of settle in and “play back” some of his words.  Let me share this one with you, “Son, don’t elect a poor man (or woman) into office, cause they will steal you blind.”  That really hit home. There is a man running for president who appears to be quite well off and is spending his own money to get elected.

    This letter is to express my sincere appreciation to the administration and staff of White Oak Manor Nursing Home of Lancaster. Their professionalism, expertise, caring and compassion have been lifesaving and instrumental in providing appropriate medical and emotional support to me and my family when needed.
    Every department gets involved in the total care that is essential for the well-being of those entrusted to White Oak Manor as residents.

  • Letter: Conservative Trump thrived amid liberals

    A lot of folks think that Donald Trump is a celebrity and businessman who is running for president but doesn’t know much about politics and government and has no experience in it.
    Let me tell you what I know about Donald Trump and his experience as an active, conservative, grass-roots Republican.

  • Letter: Thanks for support for our Marines

    I offer a special thank you to the generous citizens of Lancaster and York counties who contributed to the Christmas gifts sent to the Marines of 3rd Battalion, 8th Marines, 2nd Marine Division, home-stationed at Camp Lejeune, N.C., and currently deployed to Romania.

  • Column: Don’t blame God for mass killing in San Bernardino

    The Daily News of New York City, with letters that covered the front page of the Dec. 3 edition, boldly proclaimed, “God Isn’t Fixing This.” The statement was made in the wake of yet another mass killing, this one in San Bernardino, Calif., in which 14 people were killed and more than a dozen others wounded.
    This headline is sheer lunacy and outright hypocrisy.
