Today's Opinions

  • Column: Finally, Phil Noble and I can agree on something

    I would first like to congratulate Phil Noble for Sunday’s article headlined “Buckets of highway money, corruption aplenty.”
    Mr. Noble has written many articles that my neighbors and myself read and question where he is coming from. However, this one article gives me some encouragement for his future writings.
    I am a registered Republican but vote according to the person in question.
    From 1960 through 2012, I demonstrated, sold and trained customers with the use of high-quality measuring tools in the South.

  • Letter: U.S. has never been so divided

    I have never seen America – that’s every town and state – in such a warring way. No one seems happy. They are all mad.
    Do you not see this? Turn on your local TV station and see all the horror in your own town. It’ll scare you!
    There is no unity. America has never been so divided.
    Don’t blame Donald Trump. This has happened under Democrats. Phil Noble, y’all were going to unify us. What happened?

  • Letter: Set aside Trump’s behavior problems

    The case against Donald Trump can be summarized as follows:
    He is a “mouthy” New Yorker.    He is rude. He doesn’t listen to advice. He is not a true Republican. He is a loose cannon. We just don’t like him. His hair is disgraceful.
    I think we can ignore the last two charges.
    As to the others, here are some thoughts to put them in perspective.
    Don’t ignore the message because of the messenger. His message resonates with a large number of Americans, so deserves to be considered.

  • Letter: Truth suffers when perception is reality

    Parrots only repeat what they hear. They do not know or need any facts about the things they hear and repeat.
    Greg Summers’ great news report on the Let’s Talk forum in Lancaster confirms this truth.
    The Black Lives Matter crowd has created a narrative and refuses to allow facts to enter the discussion. Our local citizens and their leaders also do not want the truth to enter their discussions. They repeat only the narrative that the TV news reports.

  • Column: Mulvaney didn’t back flooded S.C. farmers

    Mick Mulvaney is not fit to serve in the U.S. Congress. After he was first elected, hundreds of his supporters became what I refer to as political trash.

  • Column: Firefighter Madden stopped to help after terrifying wreck

    On the afternoon of June 15, I was involved in a terrible car accident on U.S. 521 north of Lancaster.
    A trailer came loose from another vehicle and ran underneath my car, causing my car to flip several times before going down an embankment and then landing in a small creek. This accident was a very traumatic experience for me. I instantly began to panic when I realized what was happening.

  • Letter: Hillary is the most vetted candidate in U.S. history

    To put things in perspective, the folks that constantly fill the Opinion Page with their drivel slamming Democrats and Hillary are the same folks that voted for Dubya Bush twice. I’m pretty sure that destroys any credibility  they had.
    The common theme is how Hillary is such a liar, while she really is the most vetted candidate in history. Republicans have had her under a microscope for decades…. Nothing!
    If you have some info, contact Republican Trey Gowdy. He just spent two years and $7 million of your tax money and came up dry.

  • Letter: Letter writer steaming mad

    After my letter was printed in Friday’s edition of The Lancaster News, steam came out of my ears.
    My letter was edited – by the editor. I called the editor and spoke with him. I can’t remember his name, but I learned a lot about who runs our local paper. He’s not a fan of Fox News! I mean, why watch Fox? They’re only Number 1, right?
