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.

Reader praises local high school sportsmanship

I would like to commend our football team and coaching staff from Lugoff-Elgin High School for their sportsmanship and integrity under pressure during the game with Ridgeview on Friday night. The way Ridgeview High School conducted themselves is just a testament to the district's superintendent (Debbie Hamm), principal (Brenda Mack-Foxworth) and athletic director (Brian Rosefield) lack of control and fair play. Disregard the officials' missed calls; the conduct of the players on the field and the coaching staff on the sidelines of Ridgeview reflects their mind set of "Our field, our rules."

Bush comment prompts reader to evoke Jefferson

Former Republican governor and presidential candidate Jeb Bush told a conservative gathering here in South Carolina that for him to become the next president he needed a strong level of support from them and claimed some in the Democratic Party will black votes with free stuff.

Reader: Give remaining charitable funds to Karesh

Ever since the Karesh wing was established as a nursing home, after the old Camden Hospital closed, it has been a great service to Kershaw County. My grandmother was one of the first residents of the long-term care center, 42 years ago, and my mother has resided there for almost four years, after a debilitating stroke. I look upon the compassionate and skillful care she receives there as a blessing, and our family is able to sleep at night, secure in the knowledge mother is in such loving and capable hands.

Wonderful strides have been made in our fair city in the past year or two! The city itself is in the middle of a tremendous undertaking -- the street, alley, utilities and Arena projects are gradually improving our appearance and our actual quality of life.

And, as for the business community -- take a look at this list of new businesses which have been added to our commercial districts:

Letter: The price of a life

What is a person's life worth? Not so much in monetary value, but in years on this earth?
