Today's Opinions

  • Give back by helping those less fortunate

    Giving back. We hear these familiar words often, especially during the holidays.
    But the holiday season affords us a chance to live those words.
    In Lancaster County, the opportunities are endless. Take your pick because there are several ways you can help someone less fortunate.
    What about the Angel Tree? Often during this time of year with its hectic schedule, you might be dining out at an area restaurant. If so, look for an Angel Tree. Look over the tree and find a way to make a difference for a child.

  • Thanksgiving turkey wars, politics, and the main thing

    Many years ago as a small boy sitting at a crowded and noisy Thanksgiving dinner, I learned a valuable lesson about turkey, politics and priorities. It is a lesson that our national and state politicians have yet to learn – and it’s hurting all of us.

  • Americans must turn to conservative side for truth

    Why do national socialism, international socialism, marxism, leninism,  maoism, stalinism, collectivism, communism – did I forget one – oh yes, redistributionism and economic egalitarianism always fail?
    Simple. Prosperity is a by product of liberty. The evidence is everywhere one looks. If any of these brands of socialism worked then, Russia would be an economic giant today with North Korea playing catch-up. There are many highly educated people on the left who do not believe, understand or accept this truth.

  • Good prescription, wrong malady

    According to a recent poll by CBS News, congressional approval is currently at 9 percent. Playing off the Occupy Wall Street movement, are you one of the 91 percent?

  • Please Think Lancaster First when you shop

    Today is Black Friday, the official beginning of our nation’s frenzied holiday shopping season. Retailers everywhere have been gearing up for this day for months, hoping to draw in shoppers with once-a-year deals.
    Now that the holiday shopping season is in full swing, we’d like to remind shoppers to Think Lancaster First before heading to malls outside the county to do their holiday shopping.

  • Give your time, resources cheerfully

    Thanksgiving is a special time to ponder, pray and be reminder of the true meaning of thanksgiving. It is a great time to rest, reflect and give thanks unto the Lord for all he has done in and during our lives.
    Thanksgiving is a time to be reminiscent and grateful to be alive and to reach out and express our love and kindness toward our family, friends, neighbors, leaders and country. Give thanks unto the Lord for he is good and his love is everlasting.

  • Please pray for Rollins, officers, EMTs

    Officer down: These two words are the worst words that can come out over a police scanner.
    Our brave men and women in uniform put their lives on the line every day to keep us safe in our homes and on the streets.
    I would like to take this time to thank all our officers, emergency medical technicians (EMTs) and all the outside help that came out to help on Nov. 17 when one of our officers was shot.

  • Congress needs protection from electorate

    I recently read that Congress is going to allocate $50 million to the city of Charlotte for the purpose of security at the Democratic National Convention. Sure as God made little green apples, some city will get a like amount when the Republicans have their shindig.
    Betcha not one new job will be created, just funds to offset overtime for law enforcement personnel.  I realize the president will also be in attendance, but he has the Secret Service and FBI whenever he visits someplace.
