Today's Opinions

  • S.C. still abusing children

    For several years now I have written this same column – and I’m going to keep writing it until we, as a state, stop abusing our children.

    Because we do, in fact, abuse our children. And we have been doing it for a long time.

  • Set up real worker visitor program for immigrants

    Compassion is feeling or showing sympathy and concern for others; uninformed means not having or showing awareness or understanding of the facts and ignorant equates to lacking knowledge, information or awareness about something in particular.

    These three words are at the heart of the immigration debate. People scream compassion for immigrants and reveal their status of being uniformed and ignorant of the issue. America is not the pot of gold or Land of Oz where the wizard grants all wishes.

  • Don’t set limits on opposing opinions

    What an impressive rebuttal letter, “W.B. Evans, an intelligent source?,” Dianne T. Evans wrote in the July 27 edition of The Lancaster News. She was referring to some recent comments W.B. Evans wrote regarding FOX News and Dr. Charles Krauthammer. Not only did she attempt to elevate Krauthammer to unrealistic heights of intelligence – nay, genius – but at the same time impress us with her own linguistic artistry and ability. However, there are different levels and forms of intelligence – fluency of expression is only one.

  • Time to get beyond LCEDC flap

    I’ve heard that members of our Lancaster County Council ain’t supposed to talk or do stuff behind our backs. You know make decisions that benefit some and hurt others.

    I just wonder if they can talk to each other without breaking parliamentary rules? From what I read reported in The Lancaster News, it shore does seem like they are, at times, confused over matters. Some claim they never heard of some stuff going on.

    Is a council member in the wrong if he or she ventures over onto another council person’s turf?

  • Our God is unchangeable

    The Bible declares that one of God’s attributes is his unchangeableness.

    He described himself to Moses as the “I am,” meaning he is eternally the same. In the book of  Malachi, God declared “I am the Lord, I change not.” In the Psalms, it is declared that the earth and the heavens, which God created, shall someday perish like an old garment, but God will endure: “Thou art the same, and thy years shall have no end” (Psalm 102:27).

  • W.B. Evans, an intelligent source?

    I am not interested in the John Lage-Carolyn Taylor verbal interchange.

    However, letter writer W.B. Evans’ remarks, in regard to that interchange, do interest me. Please note the following in reference to his remarks as posed in “Fox News an intelligence source?” in the July 16 edition of The Lancaster News.

  • Fox News undermines journalistic integrity

    This is in response to John Lage’s letter, “Lage questions Taylor’s points,” published in the June 29 edition of The Lancaster News.

    Mr. Lage, I have no intention of a back-and-forth with you; however, I must respond to three of your statements.

    One: Your lack of understanding my repudiating your statement that to liberals the Constitution is “just a scrap of paper.”

  • Council meeting was dog-and-pony show

    After attending the July 14 County Council meeting, I realized that the meetings between the citizens of Lancaster County and the Capital Project Sales Tax Commission were a well-staged side show.

    County Council sent the tax commissioners out to all the areas of Lancaster County to hear what the people wanted to spend the 1 percent sales tax on, knowing all along that no matter what they came back with, it would be nothing but paving roads.

    It was just a dog-and-pony show – make the people think you care, then do what you had planned all along.
