Today's Opinions

  • We are Lancaster! or are we?

    I am writing concerning the We Are Lancaster! signs. First, I agree with the notion that the sign is implying we are unified as a community and stand together against certain views of our place of residence.

  • Are you better off then you were $5 trillion ago?

    There seems to be a lot of Democrat spinning here lately. No one is saying that only Democrats have made mistakes. However, denying them just reduces liberal credibility.

  • Don’t pass timber regulation

    Iam vIery disturbed by the fact that a new resolution is being introduced to deal with the use of public roads relating to timber harvesting.
    It disturbs me to think that a rural county like Lancaster would consider now over-regulating, overburdening and stifling an important industry to South Carolina.
    It might not be known that the timber and related industries employ more than 175,000 people in the state with an economic impact of $15 billion. This industry is now the largest employer in South Carolina!

  • We’re all riled up over CNN portrayal

    I was very happy with the turnout for the S.C. Republican primary. The voters cast their ballots in almost record numbers.
    Because South Carolina had a significant impact in the process of picking a GOP candidate, news reporters from all over were here. A reporter from CNN, Moni Basu, wrote an article I found extremely offensive, not only to the people of Lancaster County, but also the city of Lancaster. She asked the question, “How are finance and faith going to play a role in how you will vote?”

  • Only fools don’t change with the times

    This is a response to Bruce Miller’s guest column, “Put America first, not your political party,” published in the Dec. 30, 2011, edition of The Lancaster News.
    I really would prefer not to agree with a depressed Republican/tea party supporter. Yes, you gave U.S. Rep. Mick Mulvaney the benefit of the doubt.
    Unfortunately the tea party experience produced congressional gridlock. The lobbyists appear to be in charge and few in the House or Senate appear to have any backbone to stop it.

  • We are Lancaster! Really, I must be missing something

    Don’t get me wrong. I was born and raised in Lancaster and, for the most part, I am proud to call it home.
    I see and hear people complaining about the article published on CNN. I didn’t agree with it totally, but everyone should realize that this town has been on a steady decline business-wise ever since Springs Industries moved out of Lancaster.

  • Accident victim grateful for help

    We would like to take this opportunity to express our sincere gratitude for the many acts of kindness shown during the motorcycle accident that occurred on Jan. 25, on Great Falls Highway. Thanks for the prompt response shown by the owner of  Tire Depot, EMS workers, fire departments, bystanders and a special thanks to Malcolm Benson for praying with me as I was pinned under the car.
    Thanks to The Lancaster News for your exemplary coverage of the accident, which helped me to engage the community in prayer on my behalf.

  • Robinson family grateful for support

    The family of Rose Dunlap Robinson would like to thank everyone who extended their love, prayers and donations during the “love benefit” program sponsored by the First Washington Baptist Church family.
    Every act of kindness you rendered is extremely appreciated.
    We solicit your continued prayers and blessings from God for Rose and the family.
    God bless all of you.
