Today's Opinions

  • Carnes good public servant

    I’ve gotten to know good public servants (Mick Mulvaney, Deborah Long) who faithfully serve their communities. Brian Carnes is another such public servant, and I enthusiastically support his candidacy for the S.C. Senate District 16 seat.

    Brian’s common-sense approaches – preparing our kids and our economy for the challenges of the 21st century – are the right ones for keeping our quality of life high. 

  • Wilson is the right choice to lead LCPRC

    Sherry Wilson has been with the Lancaster County Parks and Recreation Commission for only two years, but she’s already made history with her work.

    Wilson, who became the LCPRC director with the retirement of former director Frank Overcash, is the first woman to head the LCPRC.

    Wilson has spent two years with the Lancaster County Rec, serving as the assistant director.

    Now she moves into the top job, leading the county recreation department.

  • Public radio not place to get the facts

    Winston Churchill said, “The best argument against democracy is a five minute conversation with the average voter.” Nothing speaks to the wisdom of that remark better than Ronald Hopkins’ recent letter to the editor, “To politicize Arizona shooting is unthinkable.”
    In the first paragraph he refers to liberals as disgusting and insane – which takes care of any honest debate issue.
    He then attributes four acts of violence to the left – as usual, no facts; simply the usual tea party rhetoric.

  • Writer grateful for care at hospital

    I wish to say a great big thank you to Dr. Dige and all the staff working in Springs Memorial Hospital’s emergency room on the morning of Jan. 14.

  • Writers grateful for Faulkner’s compassion

    We wanted to say a huge thank you to the staff at Faulkner’s Animal Hospital. We recently had to put our sweet Molly Jean to sleep due to her age and quality of life.
    We thank Dr. Brent Glenn for his compassion during this sad time in our life.

  • Are you better off now than two years ago?

  • Dialogue needed about landfill

    Something smells – literally – about the proposed changes for the Mineral Mining Road Landfill. If you’ve followed this issue you know Griffin Brothers Enterprises is seeking a zoning change from R-45, rural residential/agricultural, to I-1, light industrial, to allow the construction and debris landfill to become a regional sanitary landfill.
    Waste Management is the company seeking to build the landfill that will accept household trash from North Carolina and South Carolina.

  • Many accomplishments at Sheriff’s Office in 2 years

    When I was elected sheriff two years ago, I set out to accomplish an ambitious set of goals.
    Now that I’ve reached the mid-point of my first term, I think it is only appropriate to issue an update on the progress we have made to date. Based on the scope and implementation requirements, these goals were categorized as either short or long term, but the basis for all of them was accountability, improved service and professionalism.
