  • 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.”

  • Column: Shame on the culture that glorifies Stormy Daniels

    Americans have been trashing our culture for over 60 years now. There is a lot of evidence that evil is growing because of the trashing of our culture.
    West Hollywood had a big to-do and clambered all over itself to award porn star Stormy Daniels the key to the city. She was given this award at an adult retail store on May 23, 2018. The faces of the men who encircled her really revealed their great delight at what they ignorantly promoted as an honor.

  • Column: With IL move, USCL expands to meet needs in Panhandle

    According to our campus mission statement, USC Lancaster exists “to provide higher education and intellectual leadership to its service area.”
    Likewise, our mission notes that “the original design of the institution incorporated a flexibility that has allowed changes in institutional capability with increasing educational demands of constituents.”

  • Editor's Column: Parnell crashes and burns, killing Democrats’ hopes in 5th District

    Archie Parnell stopped by my office one day during last year’s special congressional election, and we chatted for 20 minutes or so.
    I liked him. He was one of the calmest, most mild-mannered, understated politicians I’ve ever met. He smiled easily, listened well, spoke softly and carefully, and made good eye contact and coherent policy points. He poked fun at himself. Some of his campaign commercials were flat-out hilarious.
    No one is laughing now.

  • Column: Norman: The next tax reform should be cuts for our troops

    It has been just over four months since the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017 was signed into law, and the nation is already feeling the positive effects of pro-growth tax reform.
    Americans are seeing the fastest wage gains in the private sector in a decade. We are seeing the fastest growth in capital expenditures since 2011. The unemployment rate is the lowest in 18 years at 3.9 percent. Business optimism is through the roof, and consumer confidence is high.
