  • Column: Busy first few weeks in House

    Since I was elected to the vacant House District 45 seat, the last few weeks have been busy ones, both for myself as well as the General Assembly and the state as a whole.
    This is the first of many updates I will be providing about what’s going on at the State House, as well as what I’m doing to represent the people of this region.

  • Column: Leaning on divine guidance

    God desires to lead and direct his people. He told David, "I will instruct thee and teach thee in the way which thou shalt go: I will guide thee with mine eye" (Psalm 32:8).

  • Letter: Trump will ‘Make America Great Again’

    Last week’s letter to the editor, “Americans’ blind trust in Trump worries reader” replicates the disingenuous and dishonest writings of the liberal media, which do not reflect the many successes of President Donald Trump.  

  • Letter: Become an intern at Sims Foundation

    Last summer, I was part of the inaugural class of summer interns at the J. Marion Sims Foundation. This experience not only gave me valuable professional opportunities, but more importantly, I was able to give back to my hometown of Great Falls in addition to the town of Fort Lawn and the communities in Lancaster County.

  • Letter: Lancaster Pharmacy assists mission trip

    My husband, David Jennette, and I would like to thank Lancaster Pharmacy at 108 N. Woodland Dr. for donating five boxes of albuterol sulfate nebulizer medicine to our mission trip to Guatemala.

  • Column: How did state’s pension system end up broken?

    Last month, a state House and Senate panel offered its solutions to fix South Carolina’s pension system, which is anywhere from $20 billion to $74 billion in debt, depending on whom you ask. What isn’t being discussed much now is how the pension system got this bad, likely because a lot of legislative leaders have overseen its decline.
    There are a lot of reasons for this fiasco. Two of the biggest are poor investments and an unreasonably high assumed rate of return.

  • Column: Trump maligned, misrepresented

    I have been accused of defending Donald Trump, and I suppose I do, because the president is trying to accomplish certain goals with which I agree.
    The idea of making this country greater, safer and stronger does appeal to me. His methods of achieving that goal have been largely maligned and misrepresented in the press and by those who hate Trump on a personal level.
    Trump has been called xenophobic for his so-called ban on Muslim immigrants. This is not a Muslim or a religious ban.

  • Letter: Americans’ blind trust in President Trump worries reader

    I am worried because so many people in America have put their trust in Donald Trump with very little information on Mr. Trump’s background. They may soon be disappointed with Trump’s grandiose promises and then soon become entirely discouraged with American democracy.
    Donald Trump has a record of breaking his promises. His has broken his promises with all of his wives.  Trump has consistently exaggerated his wealth and business success. His personal life and his business life are always in turmoil. We must not have turmoil in the White House.
