  • Column: S.C. loses extraordinary leader, public servant

    With his death Saturday at age 96, we reflect on the life of former S.C. Sen. John Drummond, who served our state and our nation well. 
    A native of Ninety Six, John Drummond was born in 1919 to a family of millworkers, like so many other S.C. families of that era. Called to serve our country in World War II, he was a pilot and paratrooper, acquiring the nickname “Ace” due to his flying prowess.

  • Letter: Dismissing Noble’s assessment of Donald Trump’s prospects

    Some of the items in Phil Noble’s column “Hey Trump, you’re a loser” need to be addressed.
    First is his distasteful line about America’s “mythical glorious wonder years of the past.”
    America has many things in her past that made her great. America was one of the first, if not the first, to outlaw slavery. America manufactured her own products, which lasted, but now everything doesn’t last because it’s made in China. We were the major factor in winning World War II.

  • Column: Prime example of the S.C. oligarchy

    The term “legislative state” gets thrown around a lot by people trying to describe our state’s power structure. That’s supposed to make our gross imbalance of power seem like a reasonable alternative – a “legislative state,” as opposed to an “executive state,” sounds like a legitimate thing.

  • Column: Democratic policies ruined our inner cities

    This little town of Lancaster does not have big problems yet. Still the citizens need to understand where the source of America’s problems started.
    Maybe the Lets Talk folks will get to the root of the problem and cure the issue before it becomes a big problem here.  
    The beginning of the problem is the lack of God in the lives of citizens, the God of our founders who is our creator. He is the source or our understanding of the truth in our world today. Without God’s laws in our lives, then man’s laws are of no use to us either.

  • Letter: State should fix S.C. 160 traffic

    I am writing in regards to the traffic situation that occurs nearly every morning at the intersection of Calvin Hall and S.C. 160.
    Since Movement Mortgage opened its doors in the spring, the traffic at that intersection has been a nightmare. Routinely, the cars are backed up almost to U.S. 521 in one direction and often farther than that in the opposite direction.

  • Letter: Thank you all and God bless

    I want to say thank you and God bless you to a number of people.
    Mr. Jerry Blackmon, thank you for giving the Lancaster Sheriff’s Department $50,000 for body cameras to help them and all of us have security.

  • Column: Declaration of S.C. barbeque supremacy

    Preamble – When in the course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the culinary bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and preeminent station to which the Laws of BBQ and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to declare South Carolina’s BBQ Supremacy.
