  • We all need to be able to breathe smoke-free air

    The American Cancer Society and the American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network celebrated the 37th Great American Smokeout on Nov. 15. For millions of American smokers, there’s never been a better time to make a plan to quit. In our community, I’m working with cancer survivors and volunteers to not only encourage quitting, but call on lawmakers to do their part to help those who are struggling to quit this deadly habit.

  • Writer asks others to join in boycott

    Attention businesses and companies: Let it be known throughout the city, state and United States that those who refuse to use the word “Christmas” and instead use “holiday” or “season’s greetings” in advertising their products or companies will be boycotted – both you and your product.
    I know there are others who feel think the same way I do. So, let’s be heard. Write, call or e-mail these companies and tell them of your disapproval.

  • Four examples of what’s good about Lancaster

    Evy Lee Williams at Elliott Shoe Repair is one of Lancaster’s true diamonds. Two years ago, I bought a white mink jacket at Goodwill for $7.99. Mr. Williams was able to repair the pelts that were torn apart. Now, at the age of 68, I have my first mink jacket and I love it. It’s kind of small, but for $7.99, it’s mine.
    Mr. Williams has repaired shoes, pocket books, long leather coats and many other items, including several of  Billy Dale’s cowboy boots. He has done the same for many other people. And he treats everyone the same.

  • Republic voted out by the mobocracy

    Evil won on Nov. 6. An arrogant nation has chosen an arrogant man as her leader again. His party is an arrogant party that has adopted the sins of Romans 1:18 as its platform.
    America has tasted the bitter poisonous fruits of lust, pride, passion, envy, covetousness, sloth, frivolity, inquity and entitlement. Did I miss one? These bitter fruits tasted sweet and America found them irresistible. See Isaiah 5:20 to see what God’s word has to say about this.

  • Fair Tax Plan will boost our economy

    The income tax creates a stagnant economy for the United States. Companies have moved overseas to give their investors a tax advantage. They will not return to the United States until our system gives them an advantage in the world market.

  • Time to make positive changes in society

    I believe the lyrics from John Lennon’s “So this is Christmas” are an appropriate way to start this letter. It is the Christmas season all over the world. As I acknowledge this, I cannot help but wonder which country and/or who are the people that keep and honor Christmas in the most fitting way? Is it the United States? Is it because we have 8 percent unemployment due in part to the fact that so, so many of our Christmas gifts come from other countries? Is it because our very own government cannot agree that all, I repeat, all Americans need health insurance?

  • AJ, Buford squads have plenty to cheer about

    There’s been plenty to cheer about this fall at Andrew Jackson and Buford high schools.
    Both of the county schools earned playoff berths in the Class AA Division II Upper State football playoffs.
    AJ notched a postseason win for the first time in eight seasons, while BHS earned a home playoff game with a solid regular-season finish.

  • Alzheimer’s a devastating disease

    Every 68 seconds, someone in America develops Alzheimer’s disease. Do you know an individual or family who has been impacted by Alzheimer’s? Chances are you do.
    In fact, South Carolina is home to more than 80,000 people living with Alzheimer’s or a related disease. To put the figure into perspective, that number could completely fill Williams-Brice Stadium in Columbia.
    From my own experience, I can attest to how challenging the disease is for a family. My brother, sisters and I struggled with watching our mother fight this terribly cruel disease.
