  • Letter: Thanking Norrell for backing FOI bill

    Editor’s note: The S.C. Press Association sent this thank you to Rep. Mandy Powers Norrell of Lancaster.

    On behalf of the newspapers of your district and the entire state, I want to thank you for voting in Tuesday’s Judiciary Committee meeting to send H. 3352, the freedom of information reform bill, on to the House floor for a vote.
    We especially appreciate that you added your name as a sponsor of the FOI bill and spoke up in response to concerns about H. 3352.

  • Column: Peculiar thing called ‘the South Carolina mind’

    In 1929, Gaffney native W.J. Cash wrote his seminal book “The Mind of the South.”
    Every subsequent attempt to understand the mind (and soul) of the South necessarily starts with this book. It has been so since it was written and will probably continue to be so for generations to come. It is that good.
    The premise of Cash’s book is that there is a distinctive Southern mind, and I believe there is also a “sub-species” native to the Palmetto State that we could call the South Carolina mind.

  • Column: I pray Trump cuts the roots of evil – judges, bureaucrats

    The Oxford Dictionary’s 2016 Word of the Year is post-truth. It is an adjective “denoting circumstances in which objective facts are less influential in shaping public opinion than appeals to emotion and personal belief.”  Emotion and feeling are the source of facts today. So now you can have your truths, and I can have mine.
    The American bureaucracy is an example of post-truth because it has been poisoned with liberal false science, false news and personal beliefs. Universities are not teaching students to think, but what to think.

  • 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.
