  • Hospice Care of SC celebrates Nurses Week

    Hospice Care of South Carolina is joining the American Nurses Association in celebrating Nurses: Advocating, Leading, Caring as part of National Nurses Week, which is held May 6-12 every year.
    The purpose of the week-long celebration is to raise awareness of the value of nursing and help educate the public about the role nurses play in meeting the health-care needs of the American people.

  • Obama surrounds himself with communists, socialists, Muslims

    Anyone  who believes Paul Krugman and his Keynesian economics ideology do not actually understand Keynesian economics. He is supported by the New York Times newspaper, which ceased being an actual news organization at least 10 years ago. It is very clear now the the stimulus spending has not achieved its objectives.
    Keynesianism does not work, never has worked and never will work. History has so much proof of this truth.

  • Hospital week begins today

    A hospital is more than a place where people go to heal; it’s a part of a community that fosters health and represents hope. From providing treatment and comfort to the sick, to welcoming new life into the world, hospitals are central to a healthy and optimistic community. That’s the message of the 2012 National Hospital Week, which is celebrated this year on May 6-12.

  • Vote Democrat if you support our education

    Since the 1970s, the Republican strategy in the South has urged white voters to defect from the “civil-rights-supporting Democratic Party.”
    This continued through the years, with attacks on busing and affirmative action, then immigration and welfare. Newt Gingrich recently labeled President Barack Obama “the food stamp president.”  

  • School choice: Why speculate?

    John Adams wasn’t thinking of school choice when he famously stated, “Facts are stubborn
     things,” but his insight can bring clarity to a debate that remains clouded with misleading claims.
    As state lawmakers consider school choice legislation, it is crucial that stubborn facts determine the decisions they make. Any policy dealing with how children are educated in South Carolina deserves nothing less.

  • America’s dream of civil society fading

    It was a Friday evening and we went to dinner at a local restaurant. We sat down and had just started to look at the menu, when from a booth a few tables away, we heard the sound of a mother cursing at one of the two small children with her. She was swearing about a green balloon one of the children wanted. A moment later, she was threatening to beat them if they didn’t eat their food – again using foul language.

  • Lack of insurance deterrent to skate park

    Editor’s note: Lancaster resident Dustin Owens has sought support from Lancaster City Council, Lancaster County Council and Lancaster County Parks and Recreation for a local skateboarding park. In a letter, “Skate park supporter’s request falls on deaf ears,” published April 4, Owens shared his disappointment at the proceedings. Steve Willis, Lancaster County administrator, responded to Owens in a letter. Following is Willis’ response.

    Dear Dustin,

  • We need some changes made in county

    I would like to thank letter writer John Realmuto, “Writer: Call Lancaster ‘last of Wild West towns’ in the April 13 edition of The Lancaster News, for your observation.
    Please remember when you’re at the voting booth this election that we have a great Republican candidate running for sheriff this year. His name is Scott Case, who graduated high school, is a U.S. Navy veteran and holds two college degrees.
