  • It’s not about contraception

    Many people have become unswervingly convinced that the ongoing controversy surrounding the administration’s health-care mandate has something to do with contraceptives.
    Certainly that’s what the mandate itself deals with – and clearly that’s the narrative the president’s political and media allies are aggressively (and, so far, successfully) advancing. But contraception actually has very little to do with the uproar.
    First, let’s recap what started this debate in the first place.

  • Lancaster residents are professional, joyful, proud

    As a motivational speaker, I get the privilege of meeting my fellow Americans all over the United States – from coast to coast – from corn fields to city centers. I meet them in their places of brokenness and celebration. I hear their stories, I hug their necks and I form instant connections with strangers whom I may never see again – but whom I will never forget.

  • Fundraiser Friday will benefit pets

    Angelo and Janet Sciulli adopted Rocky, the German shepherd that was dragged behind his owner’s truck earlier this year. When the Sciullis adopted him, he was literally skin and bone. He is now looking fit and healthy. Rocky’s sister, Abby, has also been adopted and is adjusting well in her new home.

  • Iran No. 1 country for exporting terrorism

    Jeff Donahue, whose letter was in the Feb. 3 edition of The Lancaster News, strikes me as a person who doesn’t have a clue about what’s going on in the real world.
    He said, “If Iran wants a peaceful nuclear program, why is the international community so hostile about it?” What? Iran is the No. 1 country for exporting terrorism around the world.

  • Democratic propaganda is running amok in U.S.

    In his March 8 guest column, “Please don’t believe in everything the GOP says,” Tony Boswell attacks a previous guest column by Franklin Whittlesey, largely by leveling several accusations against Republicans.

  • Allowing Sunday alcohol sales will benefit county

    Allowing Sunday alcohol sales will
    benefit county
    This is a response to Myrtle Porter’s letter concerning her opposition to Sunday alcohol sales in the Dec. 28, 2011, edition of The Lancaster News.
    Selling alcohol on Sundays in Lancaster County is not about Catholics or education or Congressman Mick Mulvaney. This is about jobs, income for Lancaster County from licensing and sales tax revenue for Lancaster County.

  • Big Thursday scholarships make impact on education

    Big Thursday of Lancaster Inc. brings together area University of South Carolina and Clemson supporters.
    When they leave, as strange as it may seem, both groups of backers are likely sporting smiles – toothy grins worth of a good day.
    The Big Thursday Scholarship Committee has produced plenty of big smiles over the last few years.
    The committee works to help county students who attend the University of South Carolina Lancaster and Clemson University.

  • Tidbits paint true picture of country

    My mother used to say, “No news means good news.” I have learned those words were not words of wisdom. No news means you are not aware of any bad news, which in turn means you are not living in the real world.
    As I listen to local and world news of late I have learned that most everyone’s frame of mind is affected by money or lack of it.
    Following are some of the tidbits that have caught my attention:
