  • Riverchase will destroy habitat for local wildlife

    The Catawba River has just been placed at the very top of the most endangered rivers list. The Catawba is a lifeline for this state as it is for other states. From wildlife to businesses this river is most essential. We are talking about our environment, we only get one Earth.

  • Hold IL graduation in school's new gym

    This year’s Indian Land High School graduation ceremony has become one big headache for everyone involved – the Class of 2008, their parents and school administrators.

    The school planned to hold the event at Byrnes Auditorium at Winthrop University, as it has done for the last several years. But this year, Byrnes is undergoing renovations, so it isn’t available. But there was some miscommunication and the high school didn’t realize it didn’t have a graduation venue until March.

  • Discovery school requires commitment

    In Wynette Burchfield’s letter, “Election is not a popularity contest,” in the April 27 edition of The Lancaster News, some statements were made that might give people the wrong impression of Discovery School.

  • ‘Prostitution free zones’ not way to combat problem

    OK, we admit it – we don’t quite get it. Lancaster County Council’s consideration of an ordinance that would declare three areas just outside the city of Lancaster as “prostitution-free zones” just doesn’t quite make sense to us.

    Prostitution-free zone? Who came up with phrase and concept? It’s something we’ve never heard of and, frankly, wouldn’t have thought Lancaster County needed.

  • Mulvaney has experience we need in Senate

    I support S.C. Rep. Mick Mulvaney for the District 45 Senate seat. My experience with him has been consistently marked by his unbridled energy, enthusiasm and interest in his being a representative to all his constituents.

    Coupled with his energy, interest and enthusiasm is a forward-looking, fiscally conservative insight into the political process and the sometimes questionable practices by some of our lawmakers. For example, witness the recent back-door pay raise that Mulvaney helped defeat.

  • One day lawn mower thief will be caught

    To the brave team who took the John Deere mower from our yard, you should be ashamed. If you knew us, you would not have taken from us. We would have given you the shirt from our backs, but you would have known that, had you known us.

  • Writer doesn't like dog tethering bill

    I just read that the dog tethering bill passed the S.C. Senate. I am absolutely livid.

    How dare so many responsible dog owners be lumped into a bill that is geared to reduce dogfighting. This is totally against my rights. I understand that the government wants to rid the state of dogfighting, but this is unconstitutional.

    What about all of us who tether our dogs during the day and release them all night to guard our livestock? What about all of us who have our hunting dogs on trolley systems until the hunt? These are loved working dogs.

  • Don't leave victims in dark

    Can you name one person who has not been exposed to some type of violence? In today’s society it is normal for all of us to be exposed to some type of violence.

    Violence is displayed in or outside of your home. It is depicted through television, video games or simple everyday living. There is no escaping it.
