  • United States is on the brink of obscurity

    Where are Washington and Lincoln? Our country sinks into obscurity while our leaders throw us crumbs.

  • Conservatives and liberals are competing ideologies

    In three recent opinion letters, two men identified themselves as non-partisan independent thinking men who actually are liberal Democrat supporters proven by their use of Democrat talking points.

  • We are Lancaster! or are we?

    I am writing concerning the We Are Lancaster! signs. First, I agree with the notion that the sign is implying we are unified as a community and stand together against certain views of our place of residence.

  • Are you better off then you were $5 trillion ago?

    There seems to be a lot of Democrat spinning here lately. No one is saying that only Democrats have made mistakes. However, denying them just reduces liberal credibility.

  • Don’t pass timber regulation

    Iam vIery disturbed by the fact that a new resolution is being introduced to deal with the use of public roads relating to timber harvesting.
    It disturbs me to think that a rural county like Lancaster would consider now over-regulating, overburdening and stifling an important industry to South Carolina.
    It might not be known that the timber and related industries employ more than 175,000 people in the state with an economic impact of $15 billion. This industry is now the largest employer in South Carolina!

  • We’re all riled up over CNN portrayal

    I was very happy with the turnout for the S.C. Republican primary. The voters cast their ballots in almost record numbers.
    Because South Carolina had a significant impact in the process of picking a GOP candidate, news reporters from all over were here. A reporter from CNN, Moni Basu, wrote an article I found extremely offensive, not only to the people of Lancaster County, but also the city of Lancaster. She asked the question, “How are finance and faith going to play a role in how you will vote?”

  • S.C. Legislature and lobbyist – free lunch

    Recently, I did a column about lobbyists and the S.C. Legislature, and from what I hear, it created quite a stir.
    Folks were outraged that there were so many lobbyists making so much money to influence our elected officials. This column is about how they do their lobbying business over free food and liquor.

  • Slutzky column: Americans need to work together to save our nation

    I read Bruce Miller’s column, “Put America first, not your political party,” in the Dec. 30, 2011, edition of The Lancaster News and I would like to respond.
    As I started to read it, I became a bit puzzled by his apparent confusion between “we” the American people and “we” the Republican Party. He appears to bunch them together as one and the same. He goes on to say that the Democrats are “partying” over the struggle for an identity by (his) party.

  • Bundy column: We suffer the consequences of federal debt

    At a recent meeting of some Lancaster area business people, I ran into an old friend who is now retired. Remembering that he was an avid golfer, I asked about his golf game. His reply was that he wasn’t playing any golf now, that he couldn’t afford it, even at the favorable rates of the Lancaster County Golf Club.

  • County purchases should have caused public outcry

    I am thrilled, but yet somewhat appalled at the outrage of the citizens of Lancaster County for being so humiliated by CNN’s coverage. Lancaster County taxpayers should have shown these same emotions and outcry last year when Lancaster County Council purchased the building site for the new EMS station in the Buford community.
    Council formed a committee combining the talents of three of our fine councilmen – Cotton Cole, Jack Estridge and Larry Honeycutt – to locate a site and return with recommendations.
