Today's Opinions

  • Out with the old; in with the new

    Since the April 6 resignations of three council members, Kershaw Town Council has moved quickly to undo or redo some of the actions of the old council. There’s been no waste of time by the new council, which has two new members and three empty seats.

    The most significant action taken by the new council was its April 16 decision to modify the plans for a new Town Hall, already under construction on Hampton Street. The four-member council voted unanimously to modify the plans for the building, which was estimated to cost about $825,000 before furnishings.

  • Support local Relay for Life

     

    A major battle in the war with cancer takes the field today at 5 p.m.

    Lancaster County’s 2009 Relay for Life, an all-night event in the on-going effort to find a cure for cancer, is upon us.

    It’s an emotional night where the community comes together for a worthwhile cause.

  • Stimulus spending will hurt S.C.

     

    Legislative leaders are creating hysteria over federal stimulus funds, threatening to fire teachers and police officers and let criminals go free if Gov. Mark Sanford doesn’t cave and let them spend millions of one-time dollars on recurring programs.

  • Wolfe family hopes to help others

    Words cannot begin to express the gratitude we feel for all the expressions of friendship received since Tommy’s sudden passing. The visits, phone calls, prayers, cards, food and embraces have brought us great comfort. The number of people who came to the visitation as well as all the plants, flowers and memorials received has been overwhelming.

    However, we all know none of these will ever take the place of our precious loved one. So please continue to pray for us.

  • Water District needs to do right thing about logo

    I am writing in response to the recent article in The Lancaster News about the Indian Land water tower logo. I think that it is a shame that Lancaster County Water and Sewer District would not comply with a simple request of a community wanting to show their pride for their school and neighborhood.

    When I first saw it I could clearly see the LCWSD logo, but had to really look to find the words Indian Land.

  • Folks can sell produce at Street Market

    I am writing to respond to Lois Knight’s letter, “County should give special consideration for seller,” published in The Lancaster News on April 26. She was voicing her concern that her neighbor, who is unemployed, had been told that he could no longer sell produce from his yard to raise extra money.

  • Restricting man's ability to sell produce 'anti-American'

    I would like to thank letter writer Lois Knight for letting us know what happened to the man selling produce on Camp Drive. We had wondered why he closed so suddenly.

    We are retired and on a fixed income and it was very convenient for us to stop by on our way to or from the shopping areas instead of driving miles to find fresh produce. We also enjoyed visiting while buying produce.
