  • 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.”

  • Letter: Indian Land ‘no’ voters, take note of Lancaster County’s tax trouble

    In last Sunday’s front-page article about Lancaster County’s inexplicable drop off in property tax collections, council member Billy Mosteller says: “We aren’t talking $10,000. We are talking millions.”
    I hope all of you who voted “no” on Indian Land becoming a town are satisfied with the current situation.

  • Letter: Band plays song honoring Howard

    The Rock Hill All Star Band played a song last Friday during a performance at Lancaster’s Moose Lodge to honor the late Mayor John Howard.
    “I Won’t Back Down” is a classic rock song written by Tom Petty and Jeff Lynne in 1989. It was first performed by Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers. After the 9/11 attack, it gained a lot of additional airplay and came to be the song that spoke to the “spirit resolve” of the U.S. military.

  • Letter: I was wrong on Randy Newman

    When I’m wrong, I admit it.
    Solicitor Randy Newman, I should have realized you would be the best man for the job. You had the best sixth-circuit solicitor, Doug Barfield, showing you the ropes before you ran.
    You have done everything you said you would do, plus more. I think we all in Lancaster should be proud of you.
    I voted for William Frick, but I’m now glad you won. Being older does not necessarily mean you’re the best.
    You’re young and have great ideas for helping our town and the court system. And you’re doing it.
