  • Letter to the Editor

    I was very happy to see people start picking up and cleaning up after Storm Florence.
    On Sept. 22, people were out and helping one another.
    Of the many activities going on the one that stood out for me was one for all children.
    At Very’s Salon in Chesterfield a group feed about 200 chidlren. The event was organized by BEAVER G'S KIDS KOUNT.
    The people who made this happen were town council member  Latonya Myer,  Beaver G Lisenby, and Noah Mumford.
    The biggest thanks go out to all of the people that donated so much food.

  • LETTER: Vandalized graves at Pageland cemetary

    Dear Editor,
    It is a shame that some people have nothing better or productive to do with their lives but to go to a cemetery and vandalize graves.
    Recently my sister and niece went to visit our parents grave only to find that someone had broken items we had placed on their graves.
    My sister and I went returned to the graves the next day to place new flowers for our mother’s birthday and had to pick up items that had been placed on the graves.

  • Letter to the Editor

    Dear Editor:

    In October 2016, fifty-nine years after the truce with North Korea was signed, Congress passed, and President Obama signed a resolution allowing a Wall of Remembrance to be erected at the site of the Korean War Memorial in Washington, D. C. 

    The Wall will have the names of the 37,000+ Americans that were killed in action (KIA), missing in action (MIA), or were prisoners of war during the Korean War engraved in it, much like the Vietnam Wall. 

    No federal funding was provided for the Wall. Private money must pay for it.

  • LETTER: Expressing thanks to honest Pageland residents

    Dear Editor,

    I would like to express my sincere thanks to the honesty of two fellow residents in Pageland.

    A few days ago, I was on my way out of town and I made two stops. I stopped first by First Palmetto Bank and then dropped mail off at the Pageland  Post Office. 

    During my traveling I realized I was missing something. 

    I began to say,  "Lord, It's in your Hands". 

    I made another stop to call the Pageland Post Office to explain what had happened.

  • LETTER: Summer Slide: It’s not all fun and games!

    Summer Slide is not a new game or attraction. It is the term used to refer to the amount of academic growth that students usually lose during the Summer months.
    Research shows if students do not continue to read during the summer, the growth they made during the school year can be lost in as less as 8 weeks. 
    This can be even more significant for lower income students who may not be involved in any other enrichment activities throughout the summer.

  • LETTER: Honoring the hero behind the heroes

    Betty Evana Rogers dedicated her life to helping those in need. 

    A native of Pageland, the love, devotion and loyalty she gave to her seven children – Andy, Mark, Julie, Kim, Robby Tina, and Little Andy – are without question, extraordinary. 

    Her enduring strength as a military spouse, through some very tough times in the 1970s, is nothing short of remarkable. 

  • LETTER: Demonizing NRA not the answer to school gun violence

    Dear Editor,
    America does not have a gun problem. We have a school problem. It is time to do something that will actually make schools safer and stop demonizing the NRA and firearms. The NRA teaches firearm safety, not hate and mayhem.

  • LETTER: School shooting the fault of government, not guns

    Dear editor,
    Government created the recent school shooting in Florida. The federal government’s FBI failed to act on two notifications about the shooter, the Florida state and county governments failed on numerous notifications about the shooter’s mental health and the city police force also failed to act.
