Opinions

 Chronicle correspondent Rachel Haynie passed away last week. This is a loss to our newspaper readers and we who knew her.
 Here are a few tributes from readers.

I feel what the buggy whip makers must have felt 100 years ago. A noisy, smoke-belching contraption on wheels was about to put them out of business. I grew up reading newspapers.

Now I find that fewer and fewer of us like to pick real newspapers up, hold them in our hands, and thumb through them to read about our neighbors and friends, check on the health and welfare of our community, and make important shopping decisions. Readers’ needs and wants are changing and we have to change with them, too.

Business

 SC Electric & Gas electricity ratepayers may find this surprising.

The company wants state regulators to let it lower rates — not for electricity but for natural gas.

Lake Murray is our state’s 4th largest overall lake market, with home listings at more than $217 million.

What do you do when you need workers but applicants flunk drug tests?
