  • Letter: Why can we no longer just ‘agree to disagree’?

    Our president was correct in condemning hatred coming from all sides.
    No violent acts should be condoned toward anyone for their beliefs. We all have the right to peaceful assembly under our Constitution. Freedom of speech is an inherent right to all.
    Equal rights means equal rights for all. Not just one side of the coin. We may not agree with the other side, but they do have the right to express their opinion, as long as it is done with no disruption toward anyone’s normal paths of travel or business hours.

  • Column: 2nd graders turn tables on reporter

    I park in the fire lane and pull out my equipment at Indian Land Elementary.

    There’s no rush for this story, but I’m always in a rush. It’s just my nature. I like to work quickly, but accurately.

    I walk into an elementary school – the kind of school I frequent to film my Facebook videos.

    Hauling in my posse – tripod, camera, microphone and notes – I check in at the front and get directions to the classroom.

    Second grade. The what-will-they-say-next age.

  • Column: Why Confederate monuments should stay

    Go to Lancaster’s Historic Courthouse and stand beneath the Confederate monument out front.
    This stately monument was unveiled June 4, 1909. It is one of the 52 such monuments that stand entrusted to our care in South Carolina.
    Better yet, go to the state Capitol grounds in Columbia and read the inscription on the monument there. It was erected by the organization Women of South Carolina to commemorate the Confederate soldiers. The inscription reads, in part:

    Let the South Carolinian
    Of another generation
    Remember

  • Column: Action plan for resisting hate groups

    Most everyone was outraged by what happened in Charlottesville. If you are in that tiny sliver of humanity that was not outraged, well….
    It is only human to react by asking, “What can I do?”

  • Letter: Great Falls dog’s death sickening

    It sickened me to read the article in your July 28 paper about the nauseating details of the death of the poor dog that was found in Keon Gladden’s yard in Great Falls. The total disregard of any care or thought for this dog was just mind-boggling.
