Today's Opinions

  • Republicans not down and out

    Thanks for another point of view from Jim Kaleugher in his Feb. 27 letter, “Republicans won’t give up even when they should.” Here is another point of view that I’m sure a lot of other South Carolinians and Americans share with me. Republicans are not down and certainly not out.

  • Three teams boasting undefeated season

    Sports seasons come and go, but there’s been plenty to cheer about at county middle schools.

    In the fall, the Andrew Jackson Middle School football team took center stage with a 7-0 record, its second straight unbeaten season.

    The county winter sports campaign has produced two more elite teams. The Buford Middle School wrestling squad and the South Middle Lady Mustangs basketball team have each posted undefeated records.

    The Buford Middle team went 11-0 under coaches Kris Self and Jason Mosier.

  • Lynches River serving rural areas for 70 years

    As we embark on our 70th successful year of service, Lynches River Electric Cooperative continues to deliver reliable electric energy at a competitive price, which improves the quality of life of our members.

    While our mission is to deliver electric energy, our goal is to improve the lives of the members and communities we serve.

  • How can Sanford lead nation when he can’t lead S.C.?

    When we elect our city and council government we pray they will look out for the community.

    We’re finding out just how much they care for what’s best for Lancaster.

    Gov. Mark Sanford could care less for us yet voters elected him. I didn’t because I knew he was against erecting a monument honoring law enforcement officers killed in the line of duty. Yet, there he was smiling at the dedication ceremony.

    He brought in pigs calling these things pork to run in our capital.

    Ask how much it costs to clean the pig poop off the marble floors.

  • It’s important to keep moving forward

    Something has bothered me for some time now. Our overburdened leadership seems to be a redundant inefficient bureaucracy.

    I understand, currently, it’s the best system in place. I’ve heard my elders, peers and veterans recount times when “getting it done” didn’t take six months. It happened right away. But with all the middlemen involved, what can you do?

  • Mulvaney wants to cut $10 fee in HOA reform

    I’ve been getting a lot of calls and e-mails from folks recently about the proposed Homeowner’s Association Act.

    Since so many people in Indian Land live in subdivisions with homeowner’s associations (HOAs), I thought I’d take this opportunity to bring folks up to speed on this piece of legislation.

    The bill – known by its number, S.30 – proposes to create state regulation of HOAs, which are the kind of mini-governments that exist in most newer subdivisions.

  • Display Crawford memorabilia

    A few weeks ago, I attended a basketball game at the new Indian Land High School gym. I try to attend as often as possible to show support for relatives and friends, as well as the school and community.

    Upon entering the high school gym foyer and seeing memoribilia displayed of other former students athletes, I was completely stunned  and in shock that nothing was displayed representing our own hometown hero, 2004 Olympic gold and silver medalist Shawn Crawford, who graduated from Indian Land High in 1996.

  • Habitat’s success depends on support

    The Lancaster County affiliate of Habitat for Humanity is back, and the group is planning projects to help families in the community. Habitat for Humanity International is a nonprofit, ecumenical Christian housing ministry. It seeks to eliminate poverty housing and homelessness and to make decent shelter a matter of conscience and action, according to its Web site, www.habitat.org.
