To the editor: I want to thank so many people for all their help and participation in Monday night’s trunk or treat in Myrtle. I want to thank the Town of Myrtle, the participating churches: Beulah Baptist, Amaziah Baptist, New Hope Baptist, Greater New Hope Baptist, Faith Assembly of God. Specifically, I would like to […]
There had been no company announcement Monday but city officials said a construction permit was issued that day for construction of a Cracker Barrel Old Country Store here, and site preparation had begun by the end of the day. There has been speculation and anticipation for a year since it was learned, amid a flurry […]
By Lisa Bryant General Manager On Friday we will celebrate Veterans Day and honor those who have served in the many branches of the armed forces. As I voted on Tuesday I thought of the thousands of men and women who have fought to protect my right to vote and who fight to keep us […]

There’s been a lot of talk lately about “rigged” elections. Perhaps it’s possible, but we don’t think it can happen here.
