Today's Opinions

  • Column: The middle class is dying

    While reading Dr. L. Brooks Walter’s Feb. 17 column, “Maybe too late to forestall social, financial collapse,” I found the need to make the following observations.

  • Column: USCL: Great opportunity, great value

    A note accompanying a recent gift from one of our donors included this perceptive sentence: “The rapidly escalating cost of pursuing an education at a four year, residential university emphasizes the importance of offering an alternative educational opportunity like USCL.”

  • Letter: Consider the source on Walker’s columns

    Dr. L. Brooks Walker has become a regular guest columnist in The Lancaster News. In his most recent column bashing yet another Democrat, he alludes to the fact that Bill Clinton “was busy disgracing himself.” My grandfather always told me to consider the source.

  • Letter: Thanks, Rubenstein, for saving monuments

    I was 68 years old before I actually saw the Washington Monument and Lincoln Memorial in Washington. They took my breath away. These are only monuments made of stone, but there was a feeling of awe as I stood where millions before me have stood to honor these presidents.

  • Letter: Worse than Hillary? You’re kidding me

    Michael Jedson’s rebuttal to Dr. L. Brooks Walker’s Feb. 7 column is embarrassingly bad. It doesn’t confront any of Dr. Walker’s facts about Hillary. All it does is bring up three of the GOP’s frontrunners and states something of no importance about them.
    He then ends with, “You may not like Hillary, but there are far worse choices here.” So, far worse than all the garbage that Hillary has done, which Dr. Walker highlighted, is someone who is an insulting self-promoter, or lastly couldn’t balance his checkbook.

  • Letter: Does anyone want to know the truth?

    Does anyone in this generation really want to know the truth? My Bible tells me: “You shall know the truth and the truth shall set you free.” If you want to be free, read God’s word.

  • Column: Ben Carson has character, leadership to revive America

    Our great nation is in trouble.  
    We have unfathomable debt. Our government is big and getting bigger. There is a deep moral decay in our society. Our religious liberties are being threatened. Our national security and defense are weak.    
    But with God’s help, there is hope to turn things around if we elect people of strong character and proven leadership. Here are some reasons why Dr. Ben Carson fits that bill:

  • Column: Can S.C. reverse its reputation for dirty politics?

    “There will be blood in South Carolina,” reads the headline of Camden resident Kathleen Parker’s syndicated Washington Post column about the presidential primaries in our state.
    She’s probably right.
    For Parker and just about everyone else who has looked at S.C. politics, and especially Republican presidential primaries, the big take away is that politics here are mean, nasty, racially charged battles. The recent Republican debate in Greenville shows that we’re probably heading for another new low this election.
