Letter: Stop treating students like criminals

Posted on March 26, 2018 1:01 pm by Submitted by Reader

Last week, while in Manning, I was shocked to see that Clarendon County School District 2 is still using the Sheriff’s Department headquarters as a school bus stop (for over a decade now)!
As I followed the deputy in his patrol car following the bus to the Monarch Academy in Alcolu, I could not think of one other district that treats its students like common criminals with such a disregard for dignity and respect.
Our students who attend the alternative school aren’t criminals! If they were, they would be expelled or arrested and sent to the Department of Juvenile Justice.… Read the rest

One of my best friends is going to be 67 years old in a month.
We’ve been friends for almost 40 years. Throughout those years we’ve given and received business advice to each other. Some of it was good and some maybe not so good. It has been helpful to have someone to discuss business decisions with.
Decisions don’t have to be big either. Do you think I should go to the party? It is just a help for a little advice or just a nudge toward doing something.
The other day we were talking about doing something. It wasn’t … Read the rest

Letter: No effort in Summerton to focus on abuse of current litter laws

Posted on March 23, 2018 11:11 am by Submitted by Reader

In response to House Bill #4458, there appears to be no effort in the Summerton community to focus on the outlandish abuse of the current litter laws.
It seems that, on the contrary, people are blatantly abusing the law by dumping trash at the very entrance of the Summerton recycling center. If law enforcement was truly interested in resolving this widespread problem, identification of litterers could be made by searching through the trash and/or placing cameras along this section of road.
I assure you the majority of Summerton residents support the enforcement of litter laws. Will additionally laws make a … Read the rest
