Letter: WHS Pride Soars

I was really disappointed and hurt when I read the headline of the article about SAT scores (BHS shines, WHS lags on SAT,AP) in the Thursday, October 17 issue of The Voice. To see our school described in such a negative way made me sad for our kids and teachers who work so hard. My […]

Editorial: Protecting our freedoms

With just 45 words the founders guaranteed five basic freedoms, fundamental American rights. Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a […]

Guest Editorial: Duke study touts local newspapers

It is easy in these times to forget the importance of your local newspaper. It is National Newspaper Week, so take time to consider what value your local newspaper brings to your community and your life. Newspaper staffers work hard to cover what you need to know and what you want to know. Local journalists […]

Letter: Keep Voice of Citizens

I read recently in The Voice that our County Council has voted to revoke the (2nd) second citizen’s comment portion, of voicing their thoughts publicly. It appears to me that the voice of the people in Fairfield County no longer counts. I’ve lived in this county my entire life. My family has been here generations. […]

Letters: “It Wasn’t A Circus”

While there is one level of disappointment in the fact that apparently the majority of County Council has decided not to support a once in a lifetime opportunity for the school district and the town of Winnsboro, it is especially disappointing for an elected councilman to question the honesty and motivation of volunteers who have […]

Letter: Attack Challenges

Councilman Douglas Pauley was absent from the Fairfield County Council meeting on Monday, September 23rd.  After hurling many allegations regarding me in The Voice Newspaper dated September 20, 2019, the 2nd Comment Session on the Fairfield County Council Agenda was cancelled by Chairman Cornelius Robinson.  Therefore, I was not able to challenge his assertions.  It […]

Letter: Why Meadow Died

I urge everyone to purchase and read Andrew Pollack’s just-released book, Why Meadow Died: The People and Policies That Created The Parkland Shooter and Endanger America’s Students. Pollack’s daughter, Meadow, was one of the students murdered at Marjory Stoneman Douglas H.S. in Parkland, Fla. I immediately bought the Kindle version and will now buy the […]

Letter: Two Wrongs Don’t Make a Right

On August 2, 2019, the Ridgeway Zoning Administrator made a recommendation approving the rezoning of the property on Main Street at the intersection of Hwy 34 and Hwy 21 from R-1 to C-1. On September 16, 2019, the Ridgeway Board of Zoning Appeals rescinded that decision due to a technicality based on the procedure (or […]
