I am responding to Michael Jedson’s letter in Friday’s paper about the Billy McCoy situation, which called me uninformed about police procedures.
My father was W.M. “Doc” Estridge. He was a city and county police officer from the 1950s until he retired in the ‘70s. My son, Deputy James Brent McCants, was 23 years old when he was shot and murdered on Dave Lyle Boulevard in Rock Hill in the line of duty on Sept. 25, 1992. Brent was a sheriff’s deputy for York County. He also worked for the city of Rock Hill.
Walking across the stage of the University of South Carolina Lancaster’s Bundy Auditorium wasn’t optional for Joseph Hammond on Saturday.
It was something he had to do.
After going to school part-time since 2008 to earn a bachelor’s degree, the summa cum laude graduate enjoyed every second of shaking hands with USCL Dean Walt Collins.
“This day means a lot, but it means even more for my family,” said Hammond, a father of two, who works at Resolute Forest Products in Catawba.

I am tired of listening to all the GOP whiners about Donald Trump and his movement to make America great again.
Regardless of how you feel about Mr. Trump, his rise as the frontrunner for the Republican Party’s nomination signals a strong popular voice in the United States – a voice for change from the status quo.
The attack on Brian Melton in Friday’s newspaper is another example of what we have come to expect from rabid left-wing Democratic operatives like Michael Jedson.
Mr. Jedson and his ilk preach tolerance, but only insofar as those who agree with them. Anyone who disagrees with the liberal orthodoxy of the day is immediately branded as an intolerant bigot.
I would like to thank Mr. W.B. Evans for his May 1 article concerning the sometimes-ruthless game of “keepers” marble shooting. It brought back some fond and funny memories to this 66-year-old, and my right thumbnail still retains that shooter’s indented groove.
The Lancaster Bruins stayed alive in the Class AAA District I baseball playoffs, taking a 5-2 road win over Emerald of Greenwood on Monday.

He was a retired minister, and his flock was small, but his messages were timely.
We were making small talk out on the front steps when a fancy new car swoshed by. That baby is way out of my price range, I remarked. Pastor Lynn said, “Sorta makes one covet, doesn’t it?”
