Today's Opinions

  • Physicals cornerstone of healthy school year

    There are many things that must be done before sending your child back to school. In addition to buying new clothes and stocking your child’s backpack with the right supplies, make sure she or he has an annual physical and the proper immunizations to start the new school year on a healthy foundation.

  • Prayer allowed in CFF

    I 90 percent agree with Carl M. Miles’s recent letter, “America needs to return to God.”

    The only reason I say 90 percent is that the Supreme Court did decree in 2001 that Child Evangelism Fellowship (CEF) was approved to conduct non-denominational Good News clubs, like Sunday school, in public schools in their after-school programs.

  • Sun City resident unhappy with Pulte

    I have been a resident of Sun City Carolina Lakes from near the beginning.

    When I first moved here, the sales center was touted to be used as an additional area for meetings, club facilities and as needed by the HOA, once the development was completed.

    Now Pulte Homes has demolished the sales center and is going to build 13 homes on the former sales center site and two nearby parking lots.

    While Pulte Division President Jon Cherry said he is excited about the additions, we, the residents, are not.

  • Sales center was never meant to be permanent

    er writer Bruce Ryden expressed his disappointment in Pulte Home’s decision to demolish the Sun City Carolina Lakes sales center and build 13 homes on that site and two nearby parking lots.

    It was never in Pulte’s original plan for the sales center to be a permanent building. It was constructed to be used as a sales center and until the Lake House was built as a gathering place for clubs, etc.

    The plan filed with Lancaster County always called for houses to be built on that piece of property near the end of the of the build-out.

  • The truth of consequences

    Is it possible for people to be smart and foolish, educated and unwise? The elected leaders of America, our judges and our progressive ideology seem to say yes. When one studies the ideology of the political progressive left I would say yes.

  • Jimmy Carter – a life of virtue

    It was announced recently that Jimmy Carter has cancer. I don’t know what will happen, or if it will cut short his life, though I’m not sure “cut short” applies to a man that is 90 years old.

    The one thing I do know is Carter will deal with his illness just as he has lived – with courage, determination, good humor and faith.

  • IL residents disappointed with board

    I would like to take a minute and thank the Indian Land Action Council for taking the time to facilitate a communication meeting between the Lancaster County school board and Indian Land residents.

    I thank the residents who attended the meeting and who were looking forward to an opportunity to hear our elected officials explain a plan for Indian Land schools.

  • Writer disputes LCEDC’s impact

    I would like to make a rebuttal to Maggie Bowers’ guest column on the defunding of the Lancaster County Economic Development  Corp.

    Maggie, do you actually think LCEDC is doing a good job? You must drive down U.S. 521 with blinders on to think that they are.

    Giant empty fields with commercial space availability signs. No attractive retail establishments to keep Lancaster County sales tax dollars from going to North Carolina.
