Today's Opinions

  • Supply and demand work in free market

    This letter is in response to the letter to the editor about stores raising gas prices before getting refills. I can certainly understand why people are upset about rising prices. As an accountant and business owner, I wish the public could realize the reality of doing business.

  • Writer unhappy with council's decision

    I am shocked to see that Lancaster County Council voted to spend $75,000 of Lancaster’s money to subsidize a private venture failure. Is councilman Wayne Kersey the only councilman to be concerned with fiduciary responsibility?

    Would the air show have donated $75,000 to Lancaster County if there had been that much more made on the venture than was anticipated? I doubt it.

    If you are an entrepreneur, you play at your own risk. You win some and you lose some. I wish the county had subsidized some of my less fortunate ventures. What a sweet deal.

  • Let's learn from our mistakes

    You have to commend organizers for trying something of the magnitude of the Palmetto Thunder Air Show held May 17-18 at the Lancaster County Airport.

    The event was a major undertaking. It took months of planning. People gave their time to help make the event become a reality. They gave up their weekends to work at the show. And it did not go unnoticed. Spectators wrote raving reviews and praised the show and the “courteous and professional” volunteers.

  • Kersey acts as bulldog for constituents

    An outrage – that is the only way to describe recent reports of the conduct of our Lancaster County Council and See Lancaster. Frank Keel, former executive director of See Lancaster, went to County Council with hat in hand to request $75,000 of taxpayers’ money to bail the group out the abysmal failure of the air show.

  • Fishing rodeo supporters say thanks for support

    Fishing rodeo supporters say thanks for support

    I would personally like to thank all the sponsors and volunteers at the second annual Sunrise Lake Fishing Rodeo. We had more than 400 children and almost 1,000 attendees. As one of Lancaster County's three game wardens who helped organize the event, I thank you.

  • Couple seek grandparents' rights

    We have found that grandparents have little or no rights when it comes to grandchildren. We wonder if there are other grandparents who share this same concern.

  • Writer thanks retiring sheriff, congratulates new one

    Writer thanks retiring sheriff, congratulates new one

    I know when Billy Dale and I voted for Johnny Cauthen for sheriff he was the best. Johnny has helped us so much. Billy Dale suffered a severe head injury in his wreck and has cussed Johnny and his deputies several times. But they knew Billy Dale was sick and helped anyway.

  • Build strong community by strengthening families

    Summer is fast approaching and Family Promise is rolling along with full steam. Monthly meetings may seem mundane to some, but for me they are exciting.

    Family Promise is on a ride of its life. With humble beginnings in September it has reached a modest middle ground. There is a lot to do and plenty of time to do it right.

    A pace has been set for Family Promise’s progress and we, on the committees, can only go with the flow and course that God has put us on.

    Prayers have been said all along and now we are seeing some graces unfold before our eyes.
