Today's Opinions

  • Thank men, women who serve our country

    Our men and women fight under red, white and blue.
    They fight to defend me and you. A lot of them have gave their all. This country must never fall. We must defend her under all costs.
    America stands for what is right and to defend her, our men and women must fight.
    God bless our country, red, white and blue.
    And to all our servicemen and women, we thank you.

  • Pennies today needed to buy necessities

    Rosemary Whitlock’s fine article on the funding for our new courthouse leaves me sorta wondering.
    The days she recalls, when leftover pennies were shoved aside, have changed some.
    Pennies are now saved in Mason jars and counted out when the heel in the bread loaf is all that remains.

  • White Oak grateful for act of kindness

    On behalf of all of our residents, their family members and our employees, White Oak Manor-Lancaster would like to extend a very warm thank you to Home Depot of Lancaster for its recent act of kindness. 
    The flower beds installed by Team Home Depot are absolutely a welcome addition to our facility. Their thoughtfulness and attention to detail continue to amaze everyone who has been out to see the gardens.=

  • Thank firefighters for lower ISO rating

    Lancaster County residents recently got some news to celebrate. The Insurance Service Office (ISO) rating throughout most of the county has gone down to a 6.0.
    The rating is based on several factors, including fire services. Homeowners across Lancaster County should be thankful for the news, as the lower ISO rating will result in lower home insurance premiums for many of them.
    The Lancaster County Fire Service pushed for the countywide ISO rating. It applies to areas served by 17 of the county’s fire departments.

  • Crawford shows true kindness, generosity

    Betty Broome’s article about Shawn Crawford being honored by Clemson University was very interesting. Crawford deserved his recognition as a great athlete and a kind, caring, down-to-earth individual.
    Especially since he is a resident from Lancaster County’s Van Wyck community. Very few residents from Lancaster County have ever had this honor bestowed upon them.

  • Stradford makes us proud to be Americans

    I was privileged recently to meet an outstanding citizen of our community. I would like to recognize him and thank him publicly for his kindness and generosity.
    While there are many among us who would do us harm and whose troubled lives are constantly in the headlines, this gentleman, through word and deed, demonstrated all that is noble and good about himself and so many others like him in our community.

  • PTSD vets don't shoot each other with paint balls

    I am writing regarding the Oct. 20th article, “Former trooper helps others cope with stress disorder.”
    John Rutledge Jr. was diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) when someone shot into his brick house when he was not at home.
    I am a Vietnam veteran, who was wounded twice and also diagnosed with PTSD. I know many fellow veterans, who are suffering with PTSD. We all agree that we don’t go out on weekends and shoot each other with paint-ball guns.

  • Veterans deserve gratitude

    Nov. 11 is the day set aside to give much-deserved recognition to those who gave their lives in service for our country.
    Veterans Day was established for that very purpose in 1918. That date coincides with the ending of World War I, also known as the Armistice, which was signed on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month.
    Celebrations across the nation include laying of wreaths at memorials throughout Washington, D.C., and festivities and parades in towns across America. Veterans of all wars will also be recognized for their service.
