  • 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 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.
