Today's Opinions

  • Evans letter: Isn’t anyone in Indian Land happy?

    Looking for a sunflower or maybe a four-leaf clover in Sun City Carolina Lakes? These are rare finds indeed.
    As a longtime opinion reader and sometime contributor, I am somewhat flabbergasted by the negative comments coming from many residents of our neighborhood to the north.

  • Ferrara letter: Aren’t there any littering laws here?

    I just can’t believe all the trash along the roads in Indian Land I saw this morning.
    I’ve only seen one sign by Aldi about adopting a highway and stopping littering. What good is that?
    The area along U.S. 521 has beautiful trees and shrubs and flowers and then you have tons of trash. This is not just along U.S. 521 either.
    Lancaster County should place signs with $500 penalties for littering and strictly enforce it.

  • Fletcher column: Woman seeks to help county’s homeless

    My name is Chaundra Fletcher. I am a member of North Corner AME Zion Church in Lancaster. I am very active in social activities that involve the homeless, hungry and children.
    I have worked in social services for the last eight years. During this time, I have learned much about the abuse and neglect of children, as well as victimization of women. I have also learned much about poverty.
    It seems that the laws continue to change without any regard to those who are less fortunate. I would dare to say that many people today would be considered working poor.

  • Sistare letter: ‘Remember When’ a huge success

    Well, they did it again! The Always Ready Emergency Troupe’s Variety and Comedy Show “Remember When” was a huge success!

  • Hopkins letter: ‘Facts speak for themselves’

    The Feb. 25 rebuttal letter by James McManus, “Walker should run for vice president,” to Brooks Walkers’ Feb. 22 column, “Time to love country more than Obama,” is pathetic.
    Because he has no facts on his side, Mr. McManus uses the old leftist alternative of vilifying anyone who disagrees with Obama as “hating the president.”
    He says, “We can argue about the economy, employment and terrorism.”

  • O'Neal column: Advice to last a lifetime

    I am writing today in honor of one of your former residents, Royce Stewart. Royce departed this life on Feb. 12, 2015. He and spouse Lavonia have been residents of Kershaw since the early 1990s. Our hearts are saddened by his loss and hope that Lavonia finds comfort through the support of family, friends and the community.

  • Yow column: House passes responsible budget without new borrowing

    I am glad to report that Northeastern Technical College is set to receive $2.3 million in funding for a new industrial training center in Pageland and other needs as the S.C. House of Representatives sends its completed budget to the Senate.
    After meeting with NETC officials and industry leaders in Pageland, it was apparent that a new training facility was urgently needed to address the present and future demands for skilled employees in District 53.
