Thoughts about Syrian immigrants and our American values

Hard times create fear and repression as well as courage and commitment to change. The question: where do we stand as a nation on the issue of Syrian immigration?

As we move closer toward the preesidential primaries here in South Carolina, I would like to encourage all readers to spend their God-given time thinking about our freedoms and our rights we have as Americans.

Executive director thanks Historic Camden founders

Four score plus five years ago, the vista which is now Historic Camden Revolutionary War Site was quite different. The secrets of 18th century Camden located south of Bull Street were blanketed by cotton fields and the city dump adorned the ridge of Magazine Hill.

Reader: God is still in charge

At this time in our lives, with acts of violence and terror committed almost daily in our nationa and around the world, it is commonplace to be discouraged and fearful for our future. If that were not enough, we must endure acts of nature such as our recent floods. God tells us to love our fellow man, but some of mankind's actions make that difficult.

Letter: Parent addresses dress code column

On Friday, November 27, one of the high school columnists wrote about the dress code at, I can only assume, her local high school. There have been many stories from all across the country about schools coming under fire for dress codes which appear to target the female students more than male students. It is not the schools which are to blame. I feel it is society which has created this problem and until society reverses the norms it has set and the expectations it has placed on personal appearance, this battle will continue.

Heflin grateful for chance to serve

As I sit back and ponder the election results of several weeks ago, I feel overwhelmed. Many emotions go through my head. I can hear my grandparents, the late John W. and Ora Lee Heflin, saying to me, "Be humble, listen to the people, and always respect them."

Property owner responds to deer hunter’s response

Bob Clyburn's letter to the editor of Nov. 5 took issue with an earlier letter I had written about my frustration with deer hunters who run their dogs across my property. So please permit me to make a few more comments here about deer hunting and landowner rights and there will be nothing more from me on this subject.

Letter: What kind of society do we really have?

I am a retired public school employee and I am very sentimental about the Abbeville v. South Carolina decision. I pray regularly for our governor, Nikki Haley, and our state legislature's leaders to have some divine guidance for all public school districts here in South Carolina.

Young columnist should ‘keep trying’ on job front

It was with a good deal of sympathy that I read the column written by the young lady who bemoaned the lack of job opportunities for youth. We've all been there. My sympathy evaporated, however, when I read the line "adults…. must give us a chance to learn responsibility and gain necessary experience through job opportunities." (Emphasis mine.)

Hunting association member takes issue with land owner’s letter

As a hunter with more than 60 years of hunting experience in South Carolina, I would like to stand up and say a previous letter on dog hunting ("Lugoff landowner shares hunters' frustrations," Sept. 25, 2015) is a bunch of poppycock.

Reader thinks Lott did right thing

It was sad to watch the actions of the school resource officer (SRO) upon a 16-year-old girl on the news. To me, it showed that he has an ego and anger issues. I feel he could have handled it in a more peaceful way. I think (Richland County) Sheriff (Leon) Lott did the right thing when he dismissed SRO (Ben) Fields from his duties as a deputy sheriff.

Reader suggests schools be cellphone-free zones

With the current incident at Spring Valley High School, would not the logical thing to do be to make all schools cellphone-free zones? It seems the female student insisted on carrying on a conversation while in the classroom and created a distraction. If the school was cellphone-free, this could not have happened, correct? We know if the schools were made such zones, everyone would leave their phones at home.

Another reader’s thoughts on cellphone incident

Regarding the disobedient student at Spring Valley High School, I will be the first to concide that if you only view the select footage the media chose to highlight, it appears to be excessive force. However, anyone's patience might have been exhausted by the time the officer was called.
