  • My Dad, our mayor, always tells it like it is

    This letter is a tribute to a man who has guided me my entire life. He has always been there for me, in the good times and bad times.
    He loves me with all of his heart. I love him because he always has been there for me.
    My dad has always put 100 percent in everything he has done. He is not perfect. He makes mistakes.
    He loves his city of Lancaster with all of his heart because it is home to him. He has always been there for the city. He has only missed a couple of meetings in his entire time in office, from 1976 to 2010.

  • Do you live on a budget?

    I know I do and so should my government. Do you go to work every day? Ah, me too. This is why on Nov. 2 I will be voting for conservative S.C. House Rep. Deborah Long. She has proven herself, by living on a budget and running a small, growing and successful health-care practice for more than 25 years.

  • Give credit where credit is due

    It is indeed refreshing to know that in an era when most politicians clamor for the limelight and have their egos stroked to puff up their self-esteem; there is one among us who truly cares about people and the common good. Larry Honeycutt is such a man.
    While the Indian Land Action Council (ILAC) is a non-political entity, we believe in giving credit where credit is due. Mr. Honeycutt is to be applauded for his service to his district, but more importantly to the entire Lancaster County.

  • Vote for Spratt for continued progress

    Many concur that when a government determines intervention is necessary in severe societal concerns, that government is merely doing what is expected of its elected members.
    Our nation was in terrible shape when the present administration took over. The previous administration had dropped us into a cauldron of lies, miscalculations and downright brainless decisions – by starting a war without cause and showering preferential treatment and protection from regulation on big banks, big business, big oil, the big drug industry, big donors, etc.

  • ‘Change we can believe in’ failed miserably

    Fully aware of the imminent challenges he was about to face, President Barack Obama swept into office with a bag full of ideological to-do lists. Mission: To fundamentally transform America with chants of “yes-we-can” and “change we can believe in.”
    This ideological platform was materially flawed at the starting gate. There is no wealth to spread. Why not? The answer is quite simply; the federal government has spent our country into borderline bankruptcy.

  • Sheheen is the best choice for education

    I’ve been looking at the web pages of two candidates for governor,  Rep.Nikki Haley of Lexington (R) and Sen. Vincent Sheheen of Camden (D), trying to determine who would make the best governor. I found that both candidates list endorsements.
    Haley is supported by Sarah Palin, Mitt Romney,  Jenny Sanford, a host of Republican lawmakers and a group of TEA parties. She is endorsed by several newspapers, including the Edgefield Daily News, the Seneca Daily Journal and the Post & Courier.

  • Voters must do their homework

    Mary Bernsdorff is running for the S.C. House District 45 seat. I can not question Mrs. Bernsdorff’s intentions or her motives in running for the State House.

  • Stable country will be bring about economic progress

    I am very sad at the level political discourse has fallen to in our area and especially in the U.S. House District 5 race. The York County Democratic chairman slanders our Democratic County Council chairman Rudy Carter. Not one local Democrat comes to his defense.  
    Rudy and I have never agreed on every issue. What I have found is a person who I know will do what he tells me he will do.

  • Mick gets his Walmart in Indian Land

    I’m writing this letter to let everyone in Lancaster County know how our millionaire state senator and candidate for U.S. Congress truly feels about you. I attended the grand opening of the new Lowes in Indian Land and spoke with our Sen. Mick Mulvaney, who was also there for the sawing of a 2x4.
    Our senator told me that now all he needs in Indian Land is a Walmart and he won’t have any reason to drive to Lancaster again.
