Being born in the early 1950s, I know what racism is like.
Forget for a moment our two candidates running for president and ask yourself what direction you want our nation to head. Isn’t that infinitely more important than the one person in the Oval Office?
In 1959, Russian Premier Nikita Khrushev made some predictions that would slowly come true. He essentially said our children’s children will live under communism, followed up by “We will take America without firing a short and we will bury you.” Thirdly, “we do not have to invade the U.S., w…
There is a battle raging in our land. The liberal left and elite are behind the funding, educate yourself. They love to see dissension between the races, riots, looting and killings. They love to see the biggie’s like Kaepernick and others take a knee, pure disrespect for the foundation of o…
My Mom had a “significant” stroke event June 30. In medical terms, the only event more serious is a “catastrophic” one, and we all know what that means. She is still alive, but not out of the woods. I believe we are far from being out of the woods.
One of the great songs by the super group Chicago was "Does anybody really know what time it is" and the question today may be "Does anybody really know anything about COVID-19"?
In the last few weeks, I have pondered in my mind and heart the mindset and actions of our society. Yes, according to our Bible, God's words to us, all lives matter. Red, yellow, black and white, we are all precious in His sight.
Prudence Taylor — these are not household words, but it would be safe to say that thousands of households have reaped the benefits of Prudence Taylor’s efforts as head librarian for the Greenwood County Library.

Some people believe the heartache and pain that occurred in Minnesota have caused these riots. We all feel these pains, no matter the race. This violence occurring now has been slowly brewing for some time. We are seeing and have seen outbursts of rage from top officials on down to ordinary …
Why are you printing Associated Press articles that are unfactual or partially factual? Articles in question, "Officer charged with murder in Rayshard Brooks shooting" and "polls on police violence" are in the June 18 edition.
I am a veteran who proudly served 26 years in The U.S. Army Reserves. My father fought in WWII, serving overseas for almost four years. Although I sympathize with the players who want to kneel at a certain time before a game, I find it highly offensive to me and to all the veterans who serve…
In these troubled times, Greenwood Women Care stands with the many in our community and our world who continue to experience injustice.
I have a friend who is a doctor. He tells me that he has been stopped for questioning by the police seven times in the last eight year, usually while in scrubs going to or from the hospital or medical school.
