Today's Opinions

  • Letter: Hillary a Christian? You must be joking

    So I’m supposed to believe that Hillary Clinton is very spiritual and a Christian, according to professor Jack Bass’ column in your Feb. 28 paper.
    Are you kidding me? She lied straight to the faces of the families of the four brave men we lost in Benghazi. At the returning of their bodies to our country, she told them the attack was the result of a video. On the same day of the attack, she emailed her daughter stating it wasn’t. Now she’s running for POTUS and she’s saying the families are lying. That’s a Christian?

  • Column: If taxpayers paid for it, it’s a public record

    This is Sunshine Week. What the heck is this, you might rightly ask, and why should I care?
    Is it the big tourist promotion campaign in Myrtle Beach to get all the Canadians to come south and jump in the ocean long before any South Carolinian in their right mind would do so?
    No, it’s not that. It relates to government.
    Sunshine Week is something that the newspaper and media people care a lot about (and since I’ve been doing this column for several years now, I guess I’m one of “them”) – so pay attention.

  • Column: Give Local: New way to support nonprofits

    The recent excitement over the DonorsChoose.org crowdfunding event that raised $14 million to fund school projects in Lancaster and across the country drives home just how impactful on-line giving has become.
    This giving initiative reached 12,000 classrooms in 47 states and will provide such things as field trips, art supplies and technology.

  • Letter: Flowers, angels go missing from graves

    I think it’s really sorry when you put flowers or other things on a loved one’s grave and somebody steals them.
    I put angels on my daughter’s and husband’s graves last summer. I walk at Memorial Park most days, and I go by their graves. I missed one day, and the next day the angels were gone. So I called the office, and they said they didn’t know what happened to them. The angels were wired to the vase, so why take them?  

  • Column: Muennich: Why you should vote ‘Yes’ on referendum

    The upcoming school bond referendum has created a lot of questions. As a current member of the Buford Community and raised in the AJ/Buford area, and as a member of the Financial Needs Committee, here are the reasons I am choosing to support this bond.

  • Column: County chamber urges ‘yes’ vote for our future

    Vote Yes!
    The Lancaster County Chamber of Commerce is encouraging all county residents to vote “yes” for our children on Tuesday, March 22.
    The chamber’s vision is to make Lancaster County a better place to live, work and do business, and we believe this vision is a basic concept that everyone desires for our county.
    To achieve this goal requires a number of key building blocks, and the cornerstone block is education. Our county will prosper if we succeed in three areas:
    ◆ Continue to recruit businesses from outside our area.

  • Editor's Column: School bond: Analyzing needs, wants, affordability

    Today, we present a sizable batch of letters from our readers about Tuesday’s school bond referendum.
    Traditionally, newspapers refrain from opinion coverage in the final paper before an election, because if someone writes something incorrect that might bias the vote, there’s no way to correct it before the polls open.

    Lancaster County Education Hall of Fame

    I’ve always been proud of how Lancaster County residents support their schools.
    It’s one of the reasons I love this county and its people. We believe in the power of a good education to help children rise to their potential, and we know that quality school facilities are an important part of providing a good education.
