  • Letter: See GOP candidates at county meeting

    Civic involvement is the key to good government, and the Republican Party encourages everyone to get involved.
    The Lancaster County Republican Party would like your involvement, including at our upcoming meeting at 7 p.m. March 23 at Mike Williams Builders, 1351 Charlotte Highway, Lancaster.

  • Column: Thank you, Lancaster, for your kindness and encouragement

    Somehow, I managed to convince my husband that we needed a family photo. So, there we are, standing in front of a pair of cedars out in the field.

    My husband and our daughter are to my right, and we’re all smiling for the camera. To my left is my son, Chad, and he’s staring off to the left at something only he can see, doing that thing he does with his hands. It’s a good shot, and it captures our family perfectly.

  • Column: Joining the masses in cyberspace isn’t worth sacrificing peace, quiet

    There is no doubt that the Internet has brought about transformational changes in the way we obtain information, conduct business and communicate with others. This Digital Age gives us great advantage.
    With just a smart phone, one can Google and access all sorts of otherwise hard-to-find information. Through numerous sites, we can shop for all kinds of goods and services and get the latest worldwide news. With an iPhone, we can send videos of choice to anyone connected online.

  • Column: Democrats working to invalidate election

    Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama gave Vladimir Putin a “reset button.” That did a lot of good.
    Putin invaded Crimea, a Ukrainian territory, and then annexed it. Putin sent military help to Syria to squash an uprising against a dictator – President Bashar al-Assad. Then Russia helped Assad kill thousands of Syrians, some with chemical weapons.
    What was President Obama’s response? He drew a red line. He also was caught on an open mic telling the Russians he’d be more flexible with them after the 2012 election.

  • Status report: House OKs 3 big pieces of legislation

    Some say politicians never get anything done. Whoever said that missed recent events in the State House, where in just three days, the S.C. House tackled three major issues facing our state: Reforming highway funding and the S.C. Department of Transportation, fixing the state employees’ pension system, and modernizing state-issued identification cards to meet higher Homeland Security standards.
