Today's Opinions

  • Letter: Response to column constructive, civilized

    I would like to sincerely thank Diane Notheisen for her wonderfully thoughtful and detailed response to my guest column of Nov 2.

    This is exactly the kind of constructive civil discourse I was hoping to elicit. I look forward to developing an ongoing dialog to reach common-ground agreement.

  • Column: A fun glimpse at a venerable S.C. subculture

    You can hear it before you get there. The dull roar grows louder as you get closer. Like a siren call to the initiated, it means there’s racin’ up ahead – and it’s already started.

  • Column: A beautiful young life lost, a way to help her daughter

    As a manager I have looked at a lot of job applications. I picked up Candace Dry’s on Sept. 26, 2013.
    Under reason for leaving her last job, she wrote “rude and had no responsibility.” I have to meet this girl, I thought.  Sometimes it is hard to interview young people. They are often shy and a little intimidated, without much work or life experience to talk about. Candace, at 19, was none of those things.

  • Letter: Need help with tax bills? Call us

    Lancaster County homeowners should have received their tax bills, which must be paid by Jan. 17, 2017, to avoid penalties.
    If you have not received your tax bill, please contact our office. We will help locate your bill and make sure we have the correct address on file for you.
    If your tax bill is in escrow, the original bill is mailed to the taxpayer. The mortgage company will gather their information electronically from us. To make sure proper payment is made, you can forward the mortgage company your bill.

  • Column: We can agree on goals, but policy approaches differ

    I am a conservative because I believe in the limited role of government, so I would like to comment on Keith Grey’s Nov. 2 article defending “progressive left” principles. 

  • Column: Guardian ad Litem Program needs you

    You may not know it, but right now there are many abused and neglected children living in our community. According to Kids Count data, more than 250,000 children nationwide are placed in foster care each year.

  • Letter: Ex-downtown business owner thanks ‘village’ of supporters

    As many of you know, I have made the difficult decision to move my flower shop from Main Street in downtown Lancaster over the past few weeks.

    When I tell you difficult, yes it was that! My little Main Street corner location was a great start for my business. From the beginning stages of exploring the idea, my great friend and longtime Realtor colleague Joni Plyler found the spot for me, and the vision immediately took shape. The responses and support from Lancaster have been overwhelming over the last three years.

  • Letter: Post 31 thanks everyone for making vets’ event a success

    We would like to thank all the good people who made the Veterans Day ceremony and parade on Nov. 5 such a success.

    First, Robin Ghent and her staff at the veteran affairs office, for a well-organized program. Then Mandy Norrell for a great speech, and all the Vietnam vets who were there to receive the honor they deserved.
