Today's Opinions

  • Protect Americans from mutinous government

    The radical left in politics and mean-stream medias are manipulating Americans on proposed changes in laws to outlaw our rifles, shotguns, pistols and accessories.
    Their ill-promoted campaigns are to deceive Americans that all hunters, sportsmen, sportswomen and others will not be affected by their legislation; but only to eliminate victims of all guns.

  • Knights of Columbus thank community

    The members and their families of the Knights of Columbus Council 14765 of Our Lady of Grace parish would like to thank the residents and businesses of Indian Land for your contributions and generosity for 2012 Operation HOPE campaign. With your help, the Knights exceeded their goal of $2,300 and collected more than $8,000 for people with intellectual disabilities.

  • Resident asks officials to drive on Taxahaw Road

    I am writing in response to Barbara Phillips’ letter about the bad conditions of Taxahaw Road. I also live on Taxahaw Road. I live about seven miles beyond her house. The conditions there are even worse.  We live on this road and we have to travel it.
    I have lost two hubcaps because of the potholes. Hubcaps are not cheap.
    Our county can build million dollar buildings but not make our roads safe to travel on.
    We, the people who live on this road, are taxpayers, too. I encourage our officials to come and take nice, leisure drive down Taxahaw Road.

  • Award shows women’s soccer team making mark

    A 4-10-1 record isn’t much to get excited about, but sometimes a look behind the mark shows a little more.
    In the case of the University of South Carolina Lady Lancers’ soccer team, this is true.
    The 2012 USCL women’s team, led by first-year head coach Nicole Bulinsky, posted four wins last fall, but there was more.

  • BG TIME keeps our communities informed

    Can you recount how many times you have started telling a story to a child or grandchild, beginning with, “Back when I was your age…?” We tend to reminisce often about our lives as younger adults and how they compare to growing up today. Now, you have a chance to share your stories with others through BG TIME.

  • ‘Of course I support women and children, but…’

    There are some basic things all politicians can agree on, like protecting women against violence and providing our children with a good education, right? Wrong.
    Recently, we have seen two vivid examples of politics as usual at its worst in both Washington, D.C., and Columbia. The victims were women and children and the perpetrators were mostly Republicans.

  • S.C. Medicaid expansion: Consequences and costs

    The S.C. General Assembly will soon take up the question of whether to expand Medicaid eligibility – and, like so many things in the world of government and politics, what sounds like a great idea is actually a terrible one.

  • Community makes project a success for area seniors

    I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of the churches that donated Christmas gifts to the Shoebox for Seniors project in December 2012. This is a project sponsored by the Lancaster County Council on Aging. Donations were made by the following churches, Beaver Creek Presbyterian, Church of the Good Shepherd Senior Group-Happy Hearts, Covenant Baptist, Eastside Baptist, First Baptist, Hopewell Methodist, Springhill Baptist and Zion Methodist.
    Thanks again to all the caring people who made this a beautiful Christmas for a lot of senior citizens.
