Today's Opinions

  • Changes needed in AJ football program

    My name is Garrett Williams and I am an alumni of Andrew Jackson Middle and Andrew Jackson High School, class of 2005.

    I was always proud to be a student of Andrew Jackson because I went to school with good people. I had some really good teachers who provided me with the best education Lancaster County had to offer.

  • Why a vote for Freeman Burns is a vote for kids

    Upon moving to Indian Land, I knew I wanted to get involved in my community.

    I came across an article in the local paper for an eight-month leadership program sponsored by the Lancaster County Chamber of Commerce.

    During the course of the program, I was given the opportunity to see how the county operates and how I could get involved.

    I bring a background that includes management skills, operations and budgeting, negotiations, sales and marketing and my most valuable skill, common sense.

  • Teaching respect begins in the home

    I heard on television about a man exposing himself to someone at a large department store and how officials were trying to find him.

    I don’t know the whole story on that situation, but I’ve witnessed something, that to me, was just as bad.

    Recently, I was walking out of a store after my husband and I bought groceries. A boy about the age of 12 or 13 was waiting for either his mother or sister, who was still in the checkout line.

  • South Carolina’s best football for 10 years

    I have been collecting information about Heath Springs football since the school closed in 1969 up to the present day. I have interviewed players from every team from 1949 through 1968 and I played for coaches Calvin “Pap” McCaw and Sidney Max Cauthen.

    I thought it would be an unique opportunity to hear from an opposing coach from the 1950s who played against Heath Springs.

  • Hess will watch our tax dollars closely

    No matter where I look, taxes and spending are out of control. We need someone who will stop the madness and make government live within its means. I’m proud of the job that our county’s Congressman Mick Mulvaney, is doing and I want to elect more people like him at all levels of government.

    We need to elect John Hess to Lancaster County Council because he’s a local businessman and financial consultant.

  • Kershaw roads also need to be fixed

    I would like to make a comment about Sen. Greg Gregory’s recent columns on the road situation in South Carolina. He never mentioned the roads in Kershaw.

    No one ever offers to fix the roads around Kershaw. In his columns, he mentioned S.C. 200, why not Highway 601?

    Overbrook is ungodly and yet the state will not fix either one of them. We pay $30 road fees and the money is not used to fix our bad roads.

  • Student seeks information on S.C.

    My name is Evelyn Alvarez and I am a student at B. Gale Wilson Elementary School in Fairfield, Calif. I am in the fifth grade and Ms. Andrus is my teacher.

    When I’m not in school, I like to play with my dogs after school. My favorite hobbies are to read and draw.

    People say I am a great artist. I think that’s true. The nicest thing someone said is I’m like Leonardo Da Vinci, but a girl.
