Today's Opinions

  • Investigation shows no employees removed signs

    A recent Lancaster News story reported that pizza signs have been allegedly removed and discarded by Lancaster County employees. Lancaster County takes such allegations seriously and at my direction, building official Bill Anderson commenced an internal investigation. The results were recently communicated to me and it revealed that no Lancaster County Building and Zoning employee removed and discarded any pizza signage.

  • You can’t please everyone

    Editor’s note: Lancaster resident Sherrill Mullis’ following letter was published in the Oct. 25, 1989, edition of The Lancaster News.

    Mr. Duke Power:

  • 14-year-old protests at nation’s capital

    Editor’s note: Tens of thousands of people poured into Washington, D.C., on Sept. 12 to participate in a rally to protest government spending. FreedomWorks Foundation, a conservative organization, planned the cross-country event called March on Washington. Lancaster High School ninth-grader Jordan Ribelin was among that group. Jordan, 14, went along with his mother, Penny Ribelin, sister, Kandy Ribelin-Brazzell, aunt, Linda Queen and family friend, Tina Black from Indian Land.

  • Writer proud to be an American

    After volunteering with the Americans Feeding Americans on Sept. 19, it makes me very proud to be an American. I met volunteers from several different states and all over our county – some were pros and some first-timers – giving of their time to help their fellow Americans.

    As we fellowshipped with each other, smiling, passing out hope of better times and letting others know we cared, we were in turn met with smiles, some with happy tears, thanks and “May God bless you.”

    It was like Christmas in September.

  • Fall into fun at annual IL festival

    It’s almost show time for the fourth annual Fall into Fun festival in Indian Land. Saturday’s festival at Indian Land Middle School promises to be a lot of fun for everyone from toddlers to teens and older folks, all for a good cause.

    This year’s event has a slightly different goal than the past three festivals.

  • We thought hurricanes were only for coasts

     The winds roared like a freight train that night. And they didn’t seem to stop. On and on, they roared. Fiercely. Frighteningly. Without mercy.

  • LHS school colors are blue and gold

    Thirty-eight years ago, Barr Street High and Lancaster High schools merged to become one local high school for all students in the Lancaster City school district. Through the unease and unknown of the merger, sound-minded administrators, parents and students from both schools joined together and formulated a new school, with a new alma mater, new school colors and a new mascot.

  • Man challenges 'facts' in previous letter

    I am writing in reference to Jeffery Donahue’s letter, “Get facts straight before making hasty decisions.” Mr. Donahue must be a fine young man serving his country in the guard and Army Reserve. He is entitled to his own opinion, but not to his own facts, which were not correct in his letter. Lee Harvey Oswald was not a fundamentalist, which is liberal speak for conservative Christian. Oswald was a Marxist and Communist – a murderer, plain and simple.
