Searching for Rosies who served during war
As a lifelong resident of Greenwood County, I am disgusted with the efforts of the Ware Shoals Police Department, as well as the Greenwood County Sheriff’s Office, at the lack of effort that is being put forth to find Donna Renee Babb.
I agree completely with Don Heirs letter to the editor published Nov. 19.
We in our beloved nation have had our share of junk mail. It has now escalated to a mammoth pile. I don't think there was one running for some office who could have felt left out. Thankfully, this looks like the last round up of the good ole voting corral.
I believe God is in control of everything in this world. I believe God keeps His eye on America more than most countries because our nation was founded on Christian principles.

To the kind gentleman who delivered delicious biscuits to us on Election Day:
Thanks to the USPS for delivering my ballot, and to the election workers my vote counted. Checking online easily confirmed my ballot arrived and was counted.
Those of us living in southern Laurens County know the reality. Several years ago, the wonderful Laurens County Council pulled the plug on our deputy assigned to the town and lake area.
Will Rogers said, “If stupidity got us into this mess, then why can’t it get us out?”
Your article on the cover of the SO Lakelands September/October issue was excellent.
I read the letter that Barbara Jackson wrote the other day. It appears the she is like most people. They think there is some some sort of requirement; i.e. a law degree, to become a justice on the U.S. Supreme Court. There is no such requirement according to the U.S. Constitution.
