Today's Opinions

  • Make wise investment in God’s word

    “Have you driven a Ford lately?” Do you remember that catchy phrase? Some of you may be too young to have heard of it. That was when America’s economy was booming and there were plenty of jobs to go around. Now, we look for ways to invest what we have, wisely, so it will build interest and hold us over in the days to come.

  • IL contract post office will be missed

    I am a regular customer at the post office in Indian Land located inside Liberty Tax (behind the Gate station on U.S. 521).

    I’m usually in there twice a week or more, but today (Aug. 20), when I went to mail a package, there was a note on the door that says they are closed permanently and that they appreciated all of our business.

    I’m shocked and disappointed to hear this news. I’m curious to know why they closed and would love to read it in Carolina Gateway.

    The Indian Land post office and its employees will be greatly missed.

  • Reader bemoans lack of common courtesy

    How about a small section about those little things that are rude, inconsiderate, who-cares and the-world-revolves-around-me people.

    We could start with, well, let’s see. How about the food store?

  • Earmark reform not just federal issue

    Your state will spend around $25 billion this year. That is a vast amount of money, but you know virtually nothing about what’s being spent, or why. That’s not because you’re uninformed or lazy. The state budget is designed to be as opaque, secretive and abstruse as possible.

  • Amid bad news, much good news to be found

    It was a tough week. First, there was the death of a young race car driver – a bizarre incident involving one of racing’s biggest stars. Days later, America mourned the loss of an actor and comedian beloved by many.

    Then, unrest in a small Missouri town where the fatal shooting of a teenager by a police officer prompted anger, protests, riots and looting.

  • Conference’s success due to our community support

    On behalf of the more than 40 nonprofit, law enforcement, and school district members of the Lancaster County Coalition for Healthy Youth, we would like to express our sincere gratitude to the many partners who helped make the Seventh Prevention of Youth Substance Abuse in Rural Communities Conference such a success.

    Lancaster should be proud to host the only national conference that focuses on the unique challenges of working with youth from rural communities.

  • Edgewater is Lancaster County’s hidden treasure

    I’ve decided to write something positive for a change. Most all my other letters to The Lancaster News are political in nature. But this one is different. Over the last year or so there have been dozens of letters opposing future development in the county – mostly the Indian Land section and Van Wyck.

    I can understand that some of the neighbors are upset because the landscape will be changing.

  • America needs to focus on fight against ISIS

    America and the free world is faced with a threat that has become more aggressive, less humane and more cruel than any international enemy since Adolph Hitler.

    ISIS (Islamic State in Iraq and Syria) leaders are capable of using modern technology to reach every continent in the world with nuclear weapons. Their use of cruel force and their knowledge of nuclear weaponry threaten every Christian, Buddhist, Jewish and Muslim community in the world. This is ISIS.
