• Questions Delleney flag vote

    To the Editor:
    In 2000, I was one of the 60,000 citizens in Columbia to protest the flying of the Confederate flag on the dome of the S.C. Statehouse.
    When the compromise to move the flag to the grounds of the Statehouse was finally made, our former Democrat (now Republican) Rep. Gregg Delleney voted no to the compromise, which meant a yes to leaving it on the dome.  

  • Supports Delleney vote

    To the Editor:
    I would like to thank Rep. Greg Delleney for standing up for what he believes in by voting not to take the Confederate flag down, and the reason being he wants to honor his heritage of the fallen Confederate soldiers and their legacy, and the flag represents something noble.

  • Unhappy with town leaders

    To the Editor:

    I am a business owner and property owner in the Town of Fort Lawn. I believe Fort Lawn is in seriously, poor financial condition under the leadership of it's current mayor and direct advice of Councilman James Scott Russell. There are very few, if any, new businesses  

  • A good laugh

    To the Editor:
    Thank you so much for your issue on June 3. Most humorous and entertaining, almost as good as "The Onion!"
    First, an article reporting on the conclusions of the vaunted Gang Task Force of our esteemed County Council, in which it reports one worthy opining, "maybe we don't have a gang problem," then goes on to detail how our sheriff's office, solicitor's office and public defender's office are all critically underfunded as compared to virtually every other county in the state and how we probably need a tax increase.

  • Thanks to Lutz Foundation
  • Visitor enjoys Lando visit

    To the Editor:
    Last week my husband and I had the pleasure of visiting the Lando Manetta Mills History Center in Lando and were delighted to have Joe Polk guide us around the museum.
    I am writing a book about Piedmont mill communities and Joe, as a former loom fixer who grew up in Lando and whose father started work at Manetta when he was only 12, proved to be a treasure trove of firsthand experiences about mill work and mill town life. He gave us an excellent tour through the varied collections at LMMHC.

  • Thanks to March for Babies supporters

    To the Editor:
    The Chester County Career Center Champions held its seventh annual March For Babies on Monday, March 23, 2015.
    Participants of the walk, led by the resource officers and the JROTC Department of Chester High School, walked around the Career Center and Chester High twice. We were then treated to refreshments prepared by the Culinary Arts Department of the Career Center.  

  • Supports school board's decision

    While the Sheriff discounts these security guards publicly, it should be noted that the guards will be retired military and law enforcement officers in good physical shape. They aren't newbies with only eight hours of training (as stated by one county deputy). So the Sheriff's effort to excite the public by lessening the security guards' abilities is without merit and biased.
