• Help support local dancers

    To the Editor:

    More than 200 people attended the African American Cultural Breakfast recently held in Chester. A highlight of the morning was a performance by teenaged dancers Jaila Young and Joseph Boyd. I'm a dance fan, and I can tell you that these two rivaled many professionals.

  • Why he won

    To the editor,


  • No wonder America is confused

    To the Editor:

    What has happened to America? Why are we in such confusion almost every second of each day? If you look at the situation as I do, I believe that you would be on the right road to understanding, yet you too must take a stand and try to help America return to what it was before President Obama took office.

  • Proven results

    Each election cycle some candidate seems to always clamor for change and, if elected, he promises to change Columbia or where ever. This change agent also always claims to be an outsider and his lack of experience in the system is touted as a great attribute. It seems politics is the only job in which a lack of experience is lauded as a positive. However, I have never heard of anyone in need of a plumber who hired the guy who says he has never fixed a water pipe. Rhetoric is fun to listen to and excites folks, but it is results that matter.

  • Fanning will represent the people

    I am voting for Mike Fanning for State Senate next Tuesday, because I believe he is the best person to represent us in Columbia.
    I am so impressed by Mike's energy and enthusiasm for the job. I know him to be hard-working and dedicated to our Chester community.
    We need help in Chester County. We keep losing jobs. Our schools are struggling to keep up with the rest of the state. Our community is quickly becoming a place our children and our grandchildren can't choose to come back to and live.

  • A positive solution

    I'm tired of negative campaigning. That's why I'm voting for Mike Fanning to be our next senator in Tuesday's run off election.
    Mike has run a positive campaign unlike our current senator who should be ashamed of himself.
    Our senator spends more time criticizing Mike than he does telling us what he's going to do for our struggling community. We don't need someone in office who has that kind of time to waste.
    Mike Fanning is positive, he has energy, and he has shown his dedication to Chester County.

  • Vote for experience
  • 18-0

    18 to 0 is not the score of latest sports blowout. Rather, it is the blowout gap in experience between State Senate candidates Coleman and Fanning.

  • Taxpayer money being misused

    To the Editor:
    The shenanigans that go on in this county would be laughable if they weren't so sad. The powers that be spend money as if there is a never-ending supply of it.
    The former county supervisor and the new sheriff engaged in a needless dispute that ended up in court over the 911 office. The taxpayers paid the county supervisor's legal fees. The taxpayers also paid for the truck that was evidently gifted to the former sheriff.

  • Offended by Civil War Monument

    It offends me to go to downtown Chester to see a monument erected for traitors of this USA and to possibly have my tax money help with it's upkeep. I may not pay my taxes. I'm going to start a petition to make people aware of this racist, murdering symbol. Someone needs to make the Confederacy know they lost the war. If I can put slavery behind, they should accept the fact that the Confederacy was wrong...Traitors,murderers, losers against GOD. They  
    can say what they want but Truth IS True.
