Today's Opinions

  • Letter: Overbrook Road overlooked

    This letter is in reference to road closures and flood barricades still up on five roads in Lancaster County listed in the paper on Sunday, Nov. 23.
    Evidently, the people that live on Overbrook Road don’t count. The road is closed at Taxahaw Road and barricaded at Lynches River going into Chesterfield County.
    When SCDOT rehabilitated Overbrook Road, they left off 2 miles. The people that live down there are being discriminated against.
    The road is full of potholes and it’s closed at the river. School buses use part of that road.

  • Letter: Israel and Biblical prophesy

    I read with interest the Nov. 25 column by Bob Lanning summarizing the Biblical history of Israel. His condensed version of that history seems quite good and quite accurate. I must take issue, however, with the last two paragraphs of his column.

  • Letter: Some French courted disaster

    The Paris terror attack on Friday the 13th is important in today’s lost world.  The French President closed the border that night to stop the uncontrolled and crazy immigration that was happening.  He did not know that the problem was already in country and it was his lost people.

  • Column: Lancaster group needs your help to continue mission in Honduras

    I am writing to urge your readers to support a group of nearly 30 Christian men from the Lancaster area who are preparing for a mission trip to Honduras.
    On Jan. 16, the group will return to Santa Elena, Honduras, to continue its partnership with Mission on the Move (MOM).  MOM in Honduras is proposing to help Honduran children find a home in a foster-care type of environment with Honduran families.

  • Column: Catawba-Wateree license strengthens Duke’s bonds with Carolinas communities

    The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) on Nov. 25 issued a new 40-year operating license to Duke Energy for the Catawba-Wateree Hydroelectric Project. It became effective Nov. 1, 2015.
    The new license allows the company to continue operating its 13 hydroelectric stations and 11 associated reservoirs located along the Catawba-Wateree River in North Carolina and South Carolina.

  • Letter: Resident thanks police officers

    I want to thank the four men from the Lancaster Police Department for bringing me a big box of turkey and other stuff on Thanksgiving. They were from the B Shift, but I didn’t get their names.
    I’m here by myself, and they went beyond the call of duty and gave up some of their time on their Thanksgiving to help me. And I really appreciate what they did. A lot of people wouldn’t have done that.
    I appreciate everything our police officers do.

  • Column: New Charleston mayor important to all in S.C.

    The election is over, and John Tecklenburg will be the new mayor of Charleston.
    John has been a good friend of mine for nearly 40 years. We first met when we were both in college in Washington, DC. Wte lived a couple of blocks apart in Charleston; our children were born about the same time and as they grew up, we were as likely to have each other’s kids at the dinner table as our own. John got me involved in lots of his community projects and I did the same. I was a part of his campaign from the beginning – through all the ups and down.

  • Column: Haley’s Thanksgiving request: Help our state’s flood victims

    Thanksgiving is a very special time for our family when Michael, Rena, Nalin, and I reflect on the blessings in our lives, blessings we may take for granted during the year.
    But this Thanksgiving, many of our neighbors, who were touched by devastating flooding, are still hurting.
    We want to make sure, especially during the holidays, that they know we have them in our thoughts and prayers – and that they can count on the South Carolina family.
