  • Tragedies bring out true American character
  • Tragedies bring out true American character

    South Carolina is nearly a thousand miles from Boston, Mass. But we, too, were shaken by the events of April 15, 2013.

    Two homemade bombs exploded in the midst of the Boston Marathon, killing three spectators, shattering the lives of dozens of others, and casting a pall of sadness over one of America’s proud traditions.

  • Would gas increase be used for road repairs?

    Thanks to Lancaster County District 1 Councilman Brian Carnes for his documentary on roads which appeared in the April 20 edition of The Lancaster News.

    I sorta chuckled when he mentioned that County Council ain’t responsible for dealing with road stuff.

    Seems it all comes back to South Carolina’s  low tax levy on gasoline.

  • GOP seeks to keep corruption out of county

    Lancaster County has seen a lot of recent political turmoil taking place in neighboring counties, especially with the arrest of Charlotte’s mayor and last week’s conviction of former Chesterfield County Sheriff Sam Parker.

    Lancaster County Republicans are committed to setting a high standard for good government, based upon higher standards for our public officials, increased citizen involvement, improved accessibility and greater transparency.

  • Free tutoring, regardless of age or income

    The educational process can be very demanding. If a student misses a key concept in any course, the ability to catch up is difficult, sometimes impossible.

    This is especially true for mathematics. Students may be ashamed or embarrassed to ask for help. Finding the appropriate tutor may be difficult and too expensive for many families.

  • Important to know full story of Democrats, Republicans

    Phil Noble’s article, “A scorned S.C. hero,” on April 18, is an article with a lot of information missing. This scorned hero, federal Judge Julius Waites Waring, he wrote about was a longtime Democrat, who actually became a Republican in his ideology and actions.

  • For a maze challenge, travel Riverside

    If you enjoy driving in a maze, then you need to travel Riverside Road from Meeting Street to S.C. 5. It’s a true challenge, and you’ll be lucky if your car is still in one piece.

  • Even from the cross Jesus shows compassion

    Jesus spoke seven different times while he hung on the cross at Calvary.

    As he was being nailed to the cross, Jesus prayed, “Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do.” This showed that Jesus knew that his persecutors did not realize they were crucifying the Lord of glory.
