  • Column – Norman: Why I am running for Congress

    Editor’s note: We have offered the 5th District congressional candidates one column apiece to make the case for why they’re the best choice.

    I believe in America because I believe in South Carolina’s 5th District.
    Over the past two months, I have traveled this district. While the individuals I met each had different perspectives, different experiences, different challenges and different hopes, they were all bound by an unabashed optimism. They see, as I do, the incredible potential of our state and country.

  • Column – Crenco owner: Raising gas tax a terrible idea

    I don’t know about you, but I am getting tired of our roads not getting fixed every year.

  • Letter: Will IL incorporation benefit Sun City?

    In the April 5 issue of Carolina Gateway, I read with concern as Russell Rhoads attacked Ginger Sheridan. She voiced her opinion about the additional cost of becoming an incorporated township. People on fixed income are concerned about added expense.

  • Letter: Eagle-eyed reader gets gracious thanks from writer

    I would like to thank Katie Martin for her correction to my letter in last Friday’s paper, concerning the Israelites in the wilderness. Yes, it was 40 years and not 40 days.
    Proverbs 15:32 states: If you reject discipline, you only harm yourself; but if you listen to correction, you grow in understanding.
    Thank you so much for your correction!

  • Column: The qualities we need most in next school superintendent

    The Lancaster County school board recently announced its three finalists for the position of superintendent.
    In the 19 years that I have been back home, I have been observant, passionate and sometimes critical of our current superintendent and members of our school board. I have been an active servant, willing not only to voice my concerns but to participate in the process of educational change.

  • Letter: The left is killing American culture

    Many folks have stated on this page that we are in a mess. Some opinionators say the Republicans are the problem, and others blame the Democrats.
    I believe the problem is that we as a nation have turned away from God and turned to the state as our god.
    The George Soros Socialist Democrats are in a rage across America. They are running amuck because they ignore the laws of the land and only accept what they want. These people see no wrong in their actions because they are the arbiters of truth, right and wrong.

  • Letter: Israelites wandered 40 years, not days

    In response to Christine Taylor’s letter from Friday, the Israelites actually wandered the desert for 40 years, not 40 days and 40 nights.
    That was the length of time that Noah, his family and the animals spent on the ark.

  • Letter: Thanking Mulvaney for help on Dexcom

    I want to share some good news with Lancaster News readers who responded to my letter to the editor last June 22. I asked for prayer on behalf of Sandra Knight Howard as she and her team of physicians sought help getting her the Dexcom glucose monitor she needed from Medicare.
    Sandra was in dire need of this device because she had been diagnosed as severely diabetic and the pump would alert her when her breathing becomes dangerously low as she sleeps.
