In order to assess recent statements and representations by Voters for a Town of Indian Land, several of us residents have asked TOIL leaders for a detailed, line-by-line budget for a town of Indian Land.
This basic information has been requested repeatedly, but never has been forthcoming. It has been requested via multiple sources: e.g., in face-to-face meetings, e-mail, through the Indian Land Action Council and through social media. I have the e-mail chain to verify these requests.
Myra McCant’s letter about the “fat mirror” was very funny.
I have written many letters in honor of our police. I did not know Myra’s son Brent McCants, a deputy who was murdered in 1992, but I’m sure he was a good man because I know Myra and her other son Billy Dale.
Our police have a dangerous job. They look after us. We also must watch out for them, because they have families also.
I don’t expect to be here much longer, but I want to leave a legacy that my letters helped save one police officer.
In the wee hours of Tuesday morning on the heels of Clemson dethroning
Alabama for the College Football Playoff National Championship, my thoughts went back to Christmas Eve, 2013.
That day I recall buying a USA Today, which in that holiday edition focused on college football recruiting.
In the issue, I remember reading about a Clemson University football recruit named Deshaun Watson, considered the nation’s top dual threat quarterback.
The impact of the winter storm over the weekend led to one county basketball game being rescheduled for later this month.

The game was the first region game for Buford to open the 2017 schedule.

KERSHAW – The old Springs Mills property isn’t inside the corporate limits of Kershaw, but town officials are still trying to get it ready for future development.
The town is now working with the Catawba Council of Governments (COG), the county and the property owners to get the 9.1-acre tract assessed by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s Brownfields Task Force.
This is in response to Carl Miles’ Jan. 11 letter “Prayer for our law enforcement officers.”
Thank you so much, Carl, for dedicating your prayer to the memory of my son, Deputy James Brent McCants.
You said you wanted your legacy to be protecting our law enforcement officers. The moment you wrote that letter, your legacy went out around the world.
God hears you and all the other men and women praying. Prayer works. And you will save someone’s life.
God bless you, Carl.
Donald Trump has been called a xenophobe, a racist and a bigot, but do the titles really fit?
A xenophobe is one who is fearful of what is foreign especially people of foreign origin. Trump does business all over the world, so I doubt he fears foreign places or people.
What he is concerned about is Isis terrorists infiltrating as refugees into our country from Syria as they have done in Europe. He has called for a halt to Syrian immigration until these people can be vetted properly.
