Today's Opinions

  • Don’t cheat our children

    If you own a home in Lancaster County and are receiving the residential rate of 4 percent, please be aware that you do not qualify for your lower tax rates and exemptions if you rent or lease your home for more than 14 days.

  • What I love and hate about proms

    I loved some things about prom when I was a principal early in my career.

    I loved seeing how hard juniors and their teacher sponsors worked to transform a plain banquet hall into a magical, glittering place.

    I loved watching the limos pull up, full of students so excited about a night they’d been looking forward to for years.

    I loved seeing the boys decked out in their tuxes and the girls in fairy-tale gowns.

  • What’s happened to America?

    Several days ago, The Observer printed an article on marijuana in North Carolina. If this is okayed, it will make 21 states that have made medical marijuana OK.

    Who will govern who gets it and who doesn’t?

    Who will govern who grows it? Why is it that we fought 40 or 50 years to keep this stuff from crossing our border from Mexico?

    The reason is that our leaders have mismanaged our tax money to the point that they are going to tax something that used to be illegal to try to ease the deficit they have created by wasteful spending.

  • Woman looking for person who hit her car

    I am a 64-year-old widow and during our recent snow and ice storm I was going to the store and was heading to the stoplight at Market Street.

    A dark green Honda pulled in front of me and hit the brakes. So, naturally, I ran into the car. The car pulled off and left. My car was damaged and I was hurt very badly. I plead with the person who did this to have some respect and fix my car.

  • Officials need to fix all our roads

    It is time our officials make it a priority to fix roads. The potholes take over the entire road. If you try to miss one pothole, you’ll hit another. We never see anyone fixing or filling in the holes. The road tax fee has increased, but we’re not seeing any results.

    Local and state officials need to take the lead in getting our roads repaired.

  • Good Samaritan came to couple’s aid

    There are still a few good men on God’s earth. On Sunday, March 9, my husband and I went to check on my mother in the Lancaster Convalescent Home. Rushing to go in, my husband missed a step on the sidewalk and fell on his hands and knees.

    I could not get him up alone, but an older man saw what happened, got out of his car and asked if he could help. So, he, God and I got my husband up.

    I did not get his name but I would like to thank him for for his kind deed. There are still good people around.

  • Suggestions for improving Lancaster

    I would like to share some ideas for Lancaster County Council members to consider. The biggest problem facing the county is the lack of jobs. Lancaster continues to be at the top of the list for unemployment. There are some things council can do to become an attractive place for a business to open or relocate.

  • David Doyle of Sun City alive and well

    We wish to clarify that the David Doyle of Indian Land obituary in the March 2 issue of The Lancaster News is not the David W. Doyle of Sun City Carolina Lakes in Indian Land. 

    David W. Doyle is alive and well and continues to collect for St. Philip Neri and Our Lady of Grace Knights of Columbus Council 14765 charities. He looks forward to seeing all of you soon.

    We extend our sincere sympathies to the family and friends of the late David Doyle.
