  • Letter: Thanks to everyone who honored my son

    I want to thank S.C. House Speaker Pro Tem Tommy Pope for helping rename the portion of Dave Lyle Boulevard for my son and to thank Mrs. Lyle and her family for okaying it.
    A lot of love went into this. God bless you all and York County Sheriff Kevin Tolson and his family and all the police and others from Lancaster and Rock Hill for being there.
    This was a beautiful thing you all did for my son, Deputy James Brent McCants, who was killed in the line of duty there in 1992. Rock Hill showed the respect and love it has for our police.

  • Column – Crenco owner: Raising gas tax a terrible idea

    I don’t know about you, but I am getting tired of our roads not getting fixed every year.

  • Column – Norman: Why I am running for Congress

    Editor’s note: We have offered the 5th District congressional candidates one column apiece to make the case for why they’re the best choice.

    I believe in America because I believe in South Carolina’s 5th District.
    Over the past two months, I have traveled this district. While the individuals I met each had different perspectives, different experiences, different challenges and different hopes, they were all bound by an unabashed optimism. They see, as I do, the incredible potential of our state and country.

  • Letter: Eagle-eyed reader gets gracious thanks from writer

    I would like to thank Katie Martin for her correction to my letter in last Friday’s paper, concerning the Israelites in the wilderness. Yes, it was 40 years and not 40 days.
    Proverbs 15:32 states: If you reject discipline, you only harm yourself; but if you listen to correction, you grow in understanding.
    Thank you so much for your correction!

  • Letter: Will IL incorporation benefit Sun City?

    In the April 5 issue of Carolina Gateway, I read with concern as Russell Rhoads attacked Ginger Sheridan. She voiced her opinion about the additional cost of becoming an incorporated township. People on fixed income are concerned about added expense.

  • Column: The qualities we need most in next school superintendent

    The Lancaster County school board recently announced its three finalists for the position of superintendent.
    In the 19 years that I have been back home, I have been observant, passionate and sometimes critical of our current superintendent and members of our school board. I have been an active servant, willing not only to voice my concerns but to participate in the process of educational change.

  • Letter: Educate yourself on congressional picks

    While making calls for our upcoming 5th District congressional race, I am concerned about the way some people react, saying they don’t want to be bothered by any of this “nonsense.” (Nonsense being a very polite word that I inserted.)
    These calls are being made only to help find you a representative to replace Mick Mulvaney. How offensive is this? Many people don’t even know it is happening or when it is happening, or who the candidates are.

  • Letter: Supporting Norman, similar to Mulvaney

    I attended a meet-the-candidate event for Ralph Norman at Craig Farm on Monday night. I have to say I was impressed. If you liked Mick Mulvaney, Mr. Norman is as close to him as I have seen. Therefore, he has my support.
