Today's Opinions

  • Giants earned super victory

    Super Bowl XLII is history, but it will long be remembered as one of the greatest championship games in National Football League history.

    The underdog New York Giants pulled a stunner, knocking off the powerful New England Patriots.

    The Patriots, cruising on an unbeaten streak, were a game away from being the stuff of gridiron legends. A 12-point favorite, New England was on the brink of becoming the first team since the 1972 Miami Dolphins to post an undefeated season in pro football.

  • Don't let dollar signs be top priority

    Editor's note: Pat Eudy wrote this letter to Lancaster County Council members about the proposed sale of Roy Hardin Park.

    You are willing to sell a nine-acre tract (Roy Hardin Park) for $1 million when other land is being sold for $150,000-$200,000 per acre, three miles from that strategic location.

    When are you going to stop doing favors for developers and start doing something for the residents of Indian Land?

  • Let's try single-gender classes

    We think it's time that Lancaster County joins the growing number of school districts in the state that offers single-gender classes to their students.

    About 90 school districts in the state now offer single-gender classes to their students. There are no single-gender classes here, but the school district is exploring the option.

    We're told some schools may begin testing single-gender classes in the fall. A.R. Rucker Middle School, for instance, is looking at making single-gender classes available for sixth-graders next year.

  • Red Cross merger means more resources

    I am excited to share the news that the Lancaster County Chapter of the American Red Cross has merged with the York County Chapter of the American Red Cross to form the Upper Palmetto Chapter.

    This means a greater strength and Red Cross presence for our residents in Lancaster County. By way of this new alliance, the Red Cross is doubling its capacity and resources to better serve the local community in times of need.

  • Super-Delegate at 21 years old
  • Residents should have voice at meetings

    I am writing about John Baker's proposal to Lancaster County Council to prohibit naming government buildings after living individuals.

    I am amazed that Wayne Kersey is too arrogant to think more deeply into the matter. Mr. Baker has done his homework and pointed out that in naming government buildings could result in embarrassment. Let's suppose Mr. Kersey is protecting the possibility of having his name on a building.

  • Anti-cockfighters seek to take away rights

    This is directed to every South Carolinian and American from every walk of life – whether you are a school teacher, housewife, public official, politician, CEO, animal rights activist, animal fighting proponent, retiree, vegetarian, meat lover, city slicker or country bumpkin.

    I am disgusted by all the hoop-lah being stirred up by the cockfighting raid in York County on Super Bowl Sunday. All the preaching that ensued about toughening the law because of all the "horror, cruelty and bad things" that supposedly goes on during cockfights.

  • Woman asks for return of photos in stolen billfold

    Woman asks for return of photos in stolen billfold

    On Feb. 12, my billfold was stolen out of my purse at the Family Dollar Store in Kershaw at 513 S. Hampton St. My billfold was gray in color with two zippers on each side.

    The billfold and the money are really of no value to me. But the pictures of my family are my world.

    Since I lost my son in 1995, I have very little left of him except the pictures that were in my billfold.
