Today's Opinions

  • Opinions on health-care act

    I think everyone deserves affordable health care. The idea of parents being able to keep their children on their insurance until age 26 is great. And not being denied health insurance because of pre-existing conditions is also a plus. I am very pleased that it was passed.

  • Opinions on health-care act

    Act needed, just like Social Security
    First and foremost: Health-care providers are for-profit organizations. The health act was needed! It is a first step. I have not read the bill in its entirety, therefore, I cannot say yea or nay about this bill as a whole. There are good and bad points. Remember, when this was passed, it was to be a work in progress; changes are expected.

  • Opinions on health-care act

    Presented to Congress on a “Vote ‘aye’ for this so you can have a chance to read it” basis, this bill was passed by Congress without thought or reflection. To my knowledge, no thorough, systematic, complete review of what this bill will and will not do has ever been presented to the American people.

  • We need S.C solutions for S.C. health care

    South Carolina advocates for better health, lower health-care costs and limited government have little to cheer about after the June 28 Supreme Court ruling upheld much of “Obamacare.”
    Instead of providing real solutions, the law simply hides our problems from public view by pouring hundreds of billions of government subsidies into a broken health care system allowing Washington to declare “victory” while continuing to ignore the real health challenges facing Americans.

  • No traffic fatalities in county during Fourth holiday

    I would like to take this opportunity to thank the citizens of Lancaster County for enjoying our nation’s Independence Day celebrations without experiencing a highway fatality within our county.
    It is very rewarding to see your cooperation through utilizing safe driving practices, which can save your life and mine.
    Unfortunately, not all our friends and neighbors practice safe driving habits. Speeding, seat-belt violations and DUI are all things that troopers dealt with over the holiday period.

  • Time to get handle on employees salaries 

    I have been learning more and more about how many state, county, local and school administrators are actually being paid a salary that is tens of thousands of dollars more than the state governor is paid.
    If you ask me – and hopefully the over-whelming majority of tax payers feel the same way – this is an absolute waste of taxpayer dollars and probably one of the main reasons why taxes are so high and continuing to go up.

  • Memory Lane Cruisers give back to community

    On May 5, the Memory Lane Cruisers Car Club of Lancaster held a car show to support HOPE in Lancaster Inc. and Christian Services Food Pantry. Proceeds from the show were shared by the two agencies.
    HOPE is a faith-based, nonprofit organization that provides short-term emergency assistance to those in crisis.
    Director Elaine Adkins said they especially need donations during the summer since the children are out of school and at home.

  • Roberts reincarnate version of activist justices

    Now that the “constitutional” dust has settled on the oft-questioned legislative “Obamacare” Act, the public is now forced to suffer through the highly charged bloviating of talking heads and what they think the U.S. Supreme Court actually said in its ruling.
