Today's Opinions

  • Girl Scout volunteers make a difference

    Last week was Volunteer Appreciation Week, with Sunday, April 22, being Girl Scout Leader Appreciation Day.
    I want to take this opportunity to personally thank each and every Girl Scout volunteer for their contributions to our organization.

  • Support Relay, help in fight against cancer

    In the spring of 1985, Dr. Gordon Klatt, a colorectal surgeon from Tacoma, Wash., sought to raise money for the American Cancer Society in honor of his patients.
    For 24 hours, a dedicated Klatt walked around the track at Baker Stadium at the University of Puget Sound in Tacoma.
    Throughout the night, his friends paid $25 each to walk or run 30 minutes with him.
    He walked about 83 miles and raised $27,000 to fight cancer.

  • All parties need wake-up call

    I have been reading the guest column for several weeks now. I am really taken aback by the uninformed readers.  
    First of all, Michael Jedson obviously listens to MSNBC, CBS or some other liberal news show. Do you really think that you are getting the truth? How naive. Let’s face it; all news has become very slanted to their personal views, misleading the public, especially those viewers uninformed. To be honest, I’m sick of it all!

  • Whittlesey needs to get facts right

    There are so many inaccuracies in Franklin Whittlesey’s “Wake Up, America” article in the Jan. 13 edition of The Lancaster News that I don’t know where to start. He must have gotten his information from Fox News, Rush Limbaugh or Michelle Bachmann – not reliable fact sources.
    Let’s start with “All the president does is campaign.” This is a completely ridiculous statement since now happens to be time when all candidates begin their campaigns. What would you call the South Carolina primary?

  • Church drama team ‘cross carriers’

    God has blessed me with some very good students to work with in the First Baptist Church drama team. We started this team a year ago to give young people the tools and knowledge they need to make the right choices in life – not like the ones I made as a young person.
    When I was 13, I got caught up with drugs, alcohol and gangs. By the time I was 18, I was sent to prison, where I spent three years. I didn’t get saved until I was 26. I later got married and now have three children.

  • Mulvaney, staff take time to discuss writer’s issue

    There are many reasons to vote for a politician. Lately, it seems it’s done mostly to see that the team wearing your jersey controls the government. Or you vote because the person closely mirrors your own beliefs.

  • Have fun, safe season at ballfield

    The youth ball season is under way around the county.
    As an annual rite of spring, many area youngsters, girls and boys from a variety of ages, will be involved with baseball and softball games from the county Panhandle to southern Lancaster County and all points in between.
    It’s a new season and the optimism is high.
    There will be plenty of games on the diamonds for these youngsters from now to mid-summer to be a part of this season.

  • Hospice and palliative care volunteers: We listen, we care

    National Volunteer Week, April 15-21, is a time to recognize and celebrate the thousands of men, women and young people who volunteer in communities across the country.
    I am a volunteer coordinator at Hospice Care of South Carolina and I want to honor all those dedicated to providing care and support for patients and families in our community who are nearing the end of life’s journey.
