Today's Opinions

  • Powers Norrell will ‘shine’ as a legislator

    I am writing on behalf of Mandy Powers Norrell, candidate for the S.C. House District 44 seat in the upcoming election. Mandy has roots in our area and understands the people’s needs now and for the future.

  • Don’t overlook bow-tie wearers

    I appreciate Greg Summers column regarding the color of the ties sported by the presidential candidates, but I must point out a glaring omission. Not once did he mention the type, shape or size of the tie, only the color.

  • Northerners seek to make IL like former homes

    My regrets to letter writer Pat Eudy, who must endure the tragedy of  living in Indian Land and  be represented by only one area councilman. Makes one want to throw more tea overboard, doesn’t it?
    Gosh, I recall the days when we traveled to Charlotte and had to ride past those overgrown farm lands with only Steele Hill AME Zion Church and its historical arbor, Mr. Pettus’ store and cotton gin, the residence with the large windmill and, last but not least, the pony farm bordering the state line.

  • Sheriff candidates should debate

    It seems that our current political circus has captured our hearts and minds, as the old expression goes. It is both fitting and proper that we become preoccupied with the presidential race, since whoever occupies that ultimate seat of power assumes the most important political position on the planet.

  • Thomas a saint among us

    There was a twist of irony to the weekend following the death of Sam Thomas.
    Sam, who died late Thursday afternoon at Springs Memorial Hospital, would have had quite a time Saturday and Sunday.
    An avid sports fan, Sam likely would have been glued to the television following South Carolina’s solid 35-7 win over SEC rival Georgia in what many hailed as the biggest game in USC football history.

  • Scott Case is the change we need

    Ms. Beverly Lynch recently submitted an article where she says that this is the first time anyone can remember where we have a choice for Lancaster County sheriff.

  • Vote yes to Sunday alcohol sales

    On Nov. 6, you can change Lancaster County by saying yes to more business, yes to more jobs and yes to a better quality of life for all Lancaster residents. A referendum to allow restaurants to serve alcoholic beverages on Sunday will be on the Nov. 6 general election ballot. This effort is being organized by the Citizens and Business for Lancaster County committee.
    This month, you will notice campaign signs around the county, which will simply say “Vote Yes – Citizens & Business for Lancaster County.” A yes vote can help Lancaster County in many ways:

  • Sheriff Faile is always ‘square with you’

    Sheriff Barry Faile has brought the Lancaster County Sheriff’s Office into the 21st century with hard work and creative ideas.
    Faile came into office in 2009 in the midst of a dismal economy with unemployment at a record high. Idleness and financial needs greatly increased the crime rate, but he and his staff have been quick to solve crimes and bring the offenders to justice in record time.
    Faile is well qualified to be our sheriff. When I spoke with him recently we talked about his accomplishments and his goals.
