  • 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.

  • Henderson letter: Celebrate spring by going meatless

    After a month of persistent and crippling snowstorms, I do look forward to spring weather, green grass and flowers in bloom.
    The advent of spring is also a great opportunity to turn over a new leaf on our dietary habits. In fact, hundreds of communities welcome spring on March 20 with an observance of the Great American Meatout.
    Participants are asked to go vegan, at least for the day, and to explore a healthy diet of vegetables, fresh fruits, legumes and grains.

  • O'Connor column: It’s time to get rid of ‘shadow government’

    The controversy encircling former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and her use of private email to conduct public business provides our latest example of government in the shadows, a situation we know well in South Carolina.
    “Shadow government,” as S.C. Press Association Executive Director Bill Rogers has labeled it, means conducting public business via private emails, texts, Twitter or other social media accounts that are not connected to government servers and thus not retrievable by government agencies and the public.

  • Keenan and Strickland column: Let’s hear it for LHS fans

    On behalf of the students and staff of Lancaster High School, we would like to express a heartfelt appreciation to the fans of the Lady Bruins basketball team. Our fans demonstrated fantastic support during the recent playoff run.
    Winning a state championship is quite an accomplishment, and completing a season at 27-0 is phenomenal. This great group of young ladies handled themselves with class on and off the court. Coach Ronnie Robinson and his staff provided great direction and leadership. In short, he is the type of man you want your kids to be around.
