Today's Opinions

  • Public radio not place to get the facts

    Winston Churchill said, “The best argument against democracy is a five minute conversation with the average voter.” Nothing speaks to the wisdom of that remark better than Ronald Hopkins’ recent letter to the editor, “To politicize Arizona shooting is unthinkable.”
    In the first paragraph he refers to liberals as disgusting and insane – which takes care of any honest debate issue.
    He then attributes four acts of violence to the left – as usual, no facts; simply the usual tea party rhetoric.

  • Writer grateful for care at hospital

    I wish to say a great big thank you to Dr. Dige and all the staff working in Springs Memorial Hospital’s emergency room on the morning of Jan. 14.

  • Writers grateful for Faulkner’s compassion

    We wanted to say a huge thank you to the staff at Faulkner’s Animal Hospital. We recently had to put our sweet Molly Jean to sleep due to her age and quality of life.
    We thank Dr. Brent Glenn for his compassion during this sad time in our life.

  • Are you better off now than two years ago?

  • Dialogue needed about landfill

    Something smells – literally – about the proposed changes for the Mineral Mining Road Landfill. If you’ve followed this issue you know Griffin Brothers Enterprises is seeking a zoning change from R-45, rural residential/agricultural, to I-1, light industrial, to allow the construction and debris landfill to become a regional sanitary landfill.
    Waste Management is the company seeking to build the landfill that will accept household trash from North Carolina and South Carolina.

  • Many accomplishments at Sheriff’s Office in 2 years

    When I was elected sheriff two years ago, I set out to accomplish an ambitious set of goals.
    Now that I’ve reached the mid-point of my first term, I think it is only appropriate to issue an update on the progress we have made to date. Based on the scope and implementation requirements, these goals were categorized as either short or long term, but the basis for all of them was accountability, improved service and professionalism.

  • $75 tax for fire district is unjust

    I would like to thank those who took the trouble to vote against the Indian Land Fire District in the advisory referendum on Jan. 18, 2011.
    You stood up for the principle that private, voluntary means should be the first option for supporting volunteer fire departments, as is done successfully all over the country.

  • Griffin: Regional landfill would benefit county

    ve been a proud neighbor and contributing member of Lancaster County’s business community for more than 15 years, as owner and operator of the Mining Road Industrial and C&D Landfill.
