Today's Opinions

  • Column: Just 1 God in the Bible, essential to our future

    Is the God of the Old Testament different from the God of the New Testament? This seems to be a premise of William St. Louis’ Oct. 5 column, “My take on God, guns and Trump.”

  • Column: Gladys Cox, a teen at the piano, enthralled me in grammar school

    Mandy Catoe’s Sept. 30 feature story “Gladys Cox steps aside after 65 years as organist at Unity ARP” was delightful.
    Such a heartwarming story of a remarkable “musical and religiously faithful family” is so welcomed amid the often destructive and discouraging news we receive in today’s world.

  • Letter: Resident likes Indian Land just the way it is

    Hopefully, Indian Land does not get built up any more. We residents like it here just as it is. This is why we moved here, because Indian Land was not built up.  
    These commercial companies need to leave us alone. We don’t need any more stores because it is a short drive to get to them all.
    We like the country setting and these commercial companies are destroying the land with all their building.  
    What about the traffic situation, which is already bad?

  • Letter: Praise for sheriff after cocaine bust

    The Sept. 30 front-page headline “Huge cocaine raid at IL business” tells us why Barry Faile should stay as our sheriff.
    Thank you to him, Maj. Matt Shaw, Doug Barfield and all the men and women working with the Lancaster County Drug Task Force and the York County Multiagency Drug Task Force. They’ve protected so many young and old people whose lives would have been destroyed by all those drugs.
    We elected the best. If it ain’t broke, why try to fix it?

  • Letter: Holt/Trump debate showed media bias

    Lester Holt’s moderating of the first presidential debate was a partisan disgrace. It was more of a Holt/Trump debate than a Clinton/Trump debate, as Mr. Holt challenged Trump maybe a dozen times and Clinton none.
    We have corruption at the highest levels of the media and both political parties.

  • Column: My take on guns, God and Trump

    After reading the guest column and a letter to the editor in the Sept. 28 edition of The Lancaster News, I feel compelled to make some random observations.
    First, I must address John Baker’s column, in which he states that Hillary Clinton is lying when she says that we have too many military-style weapons on the street. The common AR-15 is very similar in style to the M-4 or the M-16, two military rifles. The key word is “style.”

  • Column: Tip of the hat to Lancaster’s ‘Mr. Tar Heel’

    When I think of the University of North Carolina, guess who comes to mind?
    Michael Jordan? Good guess, but no. Dean Smith? He’s right up there, but not first.
    For me, No. 1 is Don Scott.
    He was “Mr. Tar Heel” in Lancaster. The Red Rose City has its share of folks who bleed Carolina blue, but Mr. Scott led the way.
    The popular community and civic leader and businessman died Sept. 24, two days after his 90th birthday, fittingly a Saturday when he enjoyed many a UNC victory.

  • Letter: Why won’t county close dusty road?

    I stay on R.F. Banks Lane in Kershaw. I have COPD. I have asbestos in my lungs, and I have a hard time breathing.
    Last week, the county scraped the road beside my house. When they got through, they put the good gravel up at the end, and they put the dusty gravel by my house.
    I have tried to get the county to quit working on the road. Every time that I ask Steve Willis, all he does is tell me a lie saying that he doesn’t have the authority to close it.
