  • Letter: County needs reliable public transportation

    Please help me understand why Lancaster has no reliable public transportation for the residents to get around.

    Yes, we have the Lancaster Area Ride Service, operated by the Council on Aging, but they only come to certain parts of the county on certain days.

    Do you not realize that you have single mothers that need to get their children to appointments, senior citizens that may have appointments and people in general who want jobs or have jobs they can’t get to because they have no reliable transportation or family?

  • Letter: Noble wrong about SPLC

    Phil Noble talks of hate groups in his Aug. 25 column. He cites the Southern Poverty Law Center to be a great vehicle for fighting hate.

    The Southern Poverty Law Center did good work in the ’70s, but now it’s just a front organization for the progressive left.

    In reality, the SPLC probably has every conservative group on its hate map. If you don’t believe in the ideology of the left, then you’re more than likely on their map. Don’t give the SPLC a dime of your money.

  • Letter: Let’s pray for law officers

    I read Myra McCants’ Sept. 15 letter about her son Brent, a sheriff’s deputy killed in the line of duty 25 years ago.

    This beautiful lady has been through a lot, but she still keeps her faith and love for God.

    Myra, my heart goes out to you. And I ask everyone to pray for our sheriff’s deputies and our sheriff, Barry Faile, and for all police officers everywhere.

    I am 68 years old. Barry and his dad, Williford Faile, are two of the best sheriffs in my time.

  • Staff Column: Hello! I’m your new reporter

    If you told me six years ago that I’d become a reporter, fall in love with a country girl and live in good ole’ South Carolina, I’d have said ease up on the psychedelics.
    Yet here I am, with all of the above turning out to be true.
    God must be punishing me for my cynicism as a Northerner.  
    I currently live in Columbia and commute to Lancaster. But I have bought a house in Lancaster’s Erwin Farm neighborhood and will be closing on the sale today.
    I am not an S.C. native, but I don’t plan on leaving – ever.

  • Teaching the kids at Discovery School about newspapers

    Editor’s note: This occasional column takes you behind the scenes with Hannah Strong, who has been reporting for a little more than a year.

    I juggle a big metal plate and a bag full of newspaper-related things in my hands on a Friday morning.
    I walk into Discovery School, trying to carry it all in one trip.
    The school will start its own newspaper soon.
    And I’ve been asked to talk with fourth and fifth graders about what’s newsworthy, how the paper works.
