• Letter: A thank you from a grieving family

    Perhaps you sent a lovely card, a phone call, some food or sat quietly in a chair. Perhaps you sent a flower, if so we saw it there. Perhaps you spoke the kindest words, as any friend would do. Perhaps you were not there at all, just thought of us that day. Whatever you did to console our hearts, we thank you so much.
    To all Sandhill Ambulance Service, EMTs, fire department, First Health and rescue squads, the family of Belinda Gale Rivers would like to thank each and everyone.

  • Letter: A good stay in Pageland

    Dear Board Members,
    Recently my husband and I had the wonderful opportunity to visit your town while attending the Darlington race in May. We stayed at the Guest Lodge and visited several local businesses and restaurants during our stay. The town is lovely and the people are hospitable. We enjoyed our stay so much, that we recently returned with additional family members to attend the Watermelon Festival and rodeo.

  • Letter: It's Fire Safety Week

    Message from Chief Wendell Johnson, Chief of High Point Fire District,
    It’s 3 a.m. You and your family are sound asleep and awake to the beeping smoke alarm. You are tired and confused from the effects of the smoke. You know you need to get to safety, but when you head for the front door, you find that escape route is blocked by fire that is spreading by the second.  What do you do?

    A class at the Chesco Workshop in Pageland, boy they get it  done when it comes to Zumba! My daughter, Alisha Catoe, loves doing Zumba. Whoever said just because you are in a wheelchair you can’t do Zumba? She loves it and so does the rest of the class. They are really into it.
    I just want to thank them all at Chesco for all they do for our young women and men. They treat them like their own. Thanks Chesco Workshop!
    Sheila Rogers

  • Letter: Be careful what you vote and wish for

    To the Editor:
    Our nation’s debt passed $16 trillion on Tuesday, September 4, during the Democrat’s convention in Charlotte. That means that the average American family’s portion of the national debt is about $189,000 dollars. Our national debt is careening this country toward bankruptcy.

    Many Americans receive government assistance in some form or another. Among those forms of assistance are Social Security, food stamps, WIC, SSI, unemployment, Medicare and Medicaid.

  • Country’s debt and Naval biofuels

    To the editor:

    Our national debt is rapidly approaching $16 trillion.  It seems that Obama may be afraid he may not be re-elected, so he is trying to bankrupt our country between now and January when a new president may be sworn in.

    To the Editor,
    I am writing to clarify the article “Hospice needs new volunteers” that appeared in your Nov. 15 edition. The article did not reference which hospice organization is seeking these volunteers. This was not Hospice of Chesterfield County.
