  • It’s important to teach young people how to manage money

     

  • Lame-stream media fails

    What a gang of hypocrites the liberals are. Lets start with golf. When George W. Bush was president, the liberal left couldn’t bash him enough for going golfing so much. President Barack Obama, “the anointed one,” has hit the greens more in his first two years than Bush did in his eight years. Not much from the lame-stream media on this.

  • Bottom-feeding journalism's fall can't come fast enough

    The crumbling of Rupert Murdoch’s media empire is a huge boon to mankind worldwide. Imagine that God-awful propaganda machine that redefines bottom-feeding for conservatives and idiots (same thing) silenced. All Fox, NY Post, Wall Street Journal, many others internationally, all gone.

  • More work needed to reduce U.S. obesity rate

    Efforts to reduce obesity in the U.S. are making some progress, but, as a nation we continue to pack on the pounds and put our overall health at risk.

    A report out last week from the Trust For America’s Health and Robert Wood Johnson Foundation noted that every state except Colorado has an obesity rate of 20 percent or more. 

  • S.C. House overrides most of governor’s budget vetoes

     

  • Saying hello, goodbye to leaders at Arts Council

    The Lancaster County Council of the Arts has seen a lot of changes lately. 

    Last month, executive director Sam Courtney, who led the council for the past six years, announced that he was resigning. This month, Debbie Jaillette stepped into the executive director’s role.

    The Arts Council, located in the old Springs House on Gay Street, promotes the arts in Lancaster County by providing educational opportunities for students and various programming for the general public, among other services. 

  • U.S. House is focusing on jobs for Americans

    Democrats in Washington, D.C.,  have taken a lot of shots at Republicans recently for not introducing a “jobs bill.” Conservatives, they say, are far too concerned with government spending and not concerned enough with “putting people back to work.”
    After a few months in Washington, I’ve gotten used to this sort of finger pointing. But I still think it’s important to explain exactly what each side’s position is, and also let you know what Congress has been up to so far this year.

  • We are losing our freedom just a little at a time

    I wish to comment on the letter from Dianne Dowdler, “Dog owner should not be penalized.” I agree with you, you just didn’t go far enough. Everyone has a passion.
    If you take these animals from Lawrence Sherrill, you might as well just kill him along with his dogs. You will have killed his spirit. The dogs are his family, companions and friends.
    A recent article said the animal shelter kills between 25 to 35 cats and dogs per week. This is America – this should not be happening here.
