  • Letter: Youth Serve camp week in Kershaw this month

    The annual Youth Serve camp is coming up in Kershaw – an amazing week packed with learning, service opportunities and fun for teens and young-adult mentors.
    The camp helps participants develop skills that they can put to good use: physical, social and occupational skills, along with character education.
    The teens, ages 13 to 19, will learn construction skills by working under the leadership of volunteer contractors. In addition, they will learn the joy of serving their community and helping those less fortunate than themselves.

  • Letter: I can’t support Archie Parnell

    As an unaffliated voter, I was considering voting for Archie Parnell. Thank you for your informative articles on Archie’s past violence and physical abuse.
    While you quote him as describing his long-ago actions as “inexcusable, wrong and downright embarrassing,” he attempts to justify his behavior by his “response to actions I feel unnecessary to specify....”

  • Letter: County makes unfair decisions on treating dusty gravel roads

    Why is it that certain gravel roads get treated with dust suppressant and some don’t?
    Let me tell you. Some do because the residents either work for Lancaster County in some capacity or they are a sheriff’s deputy. This is unfair, and I think the people of Lancaster need to know.
    I’m a homeowner here in Lancaster County, and it’s a shame that my children and I cannot even enjoy the outside of our home because of this health hazard.

  • Letter: 1st responders quick, helpful, caring folks

    This is an open letter of appreciation to the emergency medical technicians, city police officers and other first responders who came to my aid after I tripped over a utility cap and slammed my head onto the street while attending Lancaster’s Red Rose Festival May 19.
    Their response was almost instantaneous. They seated me in a chair and administered aid in a most efficient, professional and kind manner. When I declined their offer of an ambulance, an officer drove me and my brother in a golf cart to our parked car.

  • Letter: Parnell editorial right on target

    Thank you very much for last Sunday’s editorial on Archie Parnell. I’ve met him several times and read just about every piece written on him since spring 2017, and yours is the only one that captures his personality, that goes beyond the humor and the nerdiness to the decency.
    It’s also the only one I’ve read so far that acknowledges what his failure means for our congressional district. Thanks again for a meaningful read.

  • Letter: I am impressed with gubernatorial candidate Catherine Templeton

    On May 15, I attended a “Catherine Templeton for Governor” campaign event at Sun City Carolina Lakes. 
    I never met her before. I had only seen her TV ads. where she unequivocally affirms that she is pro-life and anti-abortion.
    Her event was scheduled for 2:30 p.m and she showed up at 2:30 p.m. She is punctual, an honorable attribute.

  • Letter: Atwater my pick for attorney general

    We need Todd Atwater as the next attorney general in South Carolina.
    I have had the opportunity to meet with Todd and believe he is the only candidate with the leadership, experience and integrity to begin restoring our faith in government and to the office of attorney general.
    Regarding Todd’s leadership, experience and integrity, he has a record of bold, conservative leadership during his eight years in the S.C. House of Representatives and in his work in the private sector. He has 26 years of legal experience and in leading large organizations.

  • Letter: Norman’s stance on nonprofits bad

    Ralph Norman has recently shown that his judgment as a representative of the people is questionable at best.
    His stunt of laying a firearm on the table of a restaurant is indicative of an irresponsible gun owner, placing everyone in that eatery at risk.
    Now Ralph has set his policy sights on defunding all nonprofits. In a recent Facebook post, he stated: “No private organization should be given taxpayer dollars to use.”

  • Letter: S.C. Connections Academy celebrating 10th anniversary

    In the last 10 years, I have opened the door to South Carolina Connections Academy’s office over 2,000 times. The academy is an online public school, delivering education to students statewide.

    Though our students access their learning from anywhere with an internet connection, the school’s office has become my second home. It’s where I have grown as a teacher, principal and person.

  • Letter: Discounts just for Sun City residents upset IL senior

    I would like to inform the senior population that does not live in Sun City of a situation I encountered on a recent trip to a new Mexican restaurant in Indian Land.

    Posted on the door was this sign: “All residences (sic) of Sun City must present their coupon or Sun City ID to receive the 10% discount on dinner menu.”
