Today's Opinions

  • Liberal left destroying our country

    I’d like to answer to Stephen Winn’s letter, “Hopkins not practicing what he preaches,” in the Jan. 26 paper. It’s quite apparent that he didn’t understand the gist of my comments.
    I was referring to the revolting display of the left’s lack of morals when, immediately after the Arizona shooting, they tried to place the blame on conservatives, such as the tea party, Sarah Palin, talk radio and others. This occurs every time there is a horrible tragedy.

  • Wreck victim, family grateful for help

    I want to say thank you to our fire department, ambulance service and rescue service people. Their fast response and great work saved the life of our granddaughter, Amber McManus.
    She was in a wreck on Dec. 1, 2010. They prepared her to be airlifted to CMC on the scene. They wasted no time to get her ready. It was a great job.

  • County needs to fix all roads – not just IL

    I am writing to complain about the condition of Taxahaw Road in Lancaster and Kershaw counties. This road runs from S.C. 903 in Lancaster across to S.C. 265 in Kershaw. I have lived off of Taxahaw Road for the past 20 years and it has always been in bad shape.
    Other than a few tar patches now and then by the S.C. Department of Transportation, there has not been anything done to this road to significantly improve it.
    Ever since the last major accumulation of snow in this area, this road has been in worse shape than ever.

  • Indian Land – let your voice be heard

    Melvin Threatt said in the story, “Mulvaney backing Gregory at Sun City,” in the Feb. 4 edition of The Lancaster News that Sun City was the place to be if you are a candidate. Threatt, who organized the event at Sun City, went on to say, “If you want votes, this is where you should be.”
    Mr. Threatt, I must say that I am an Indian Land native, and I also hope, that I am a voice for many Indian Land natives.

  • Lancaster needs Gregory in redistricting battle

    A recent writer stated he was “mystified” why Greg Gregory wanted to run for Senate again. Perhaps he would be interested to know that every 10 years after the census is taken, the lines for Senate districts are redrawn based on changes in population.

  • Carnes wants to change dynamics of S.C. Senate

  • Elyse’s death should not be forgotten

    This letter is in response to the letter to the editor, “No Need to Bring up Previous Fatalities.”   I am Susan Hardin, mother of the late Elyse Rebecca Hardin. The car crash that took Elyse’slife has been mentioned in several articles since her death. I would first like to state that I speak only for our family. I would never be so disrespectful as to speak for the other families who have also lost a child. They continue to be in our thoughts and prayers daily.

  • Landfill opponent appreciates support

    I would like to thank everyone who had any part in helping us get where we are in the Mining Road Solid Waste Landfill process. We still need your prayers and support because the landfill process is not over by any means.
    The landfill will mess up a beautiful view from the White Bluff Church front porch. It will eventually cause the eastern part of Lancaster to die because we already have a maximum-security prison and a gold mine that has bought thousands of acres of land. No one wants to live in such an environment.
