Today's Opinions

  • Council should consider young person’s request

    I applaud the courage and determination of Dustin Owens, who met with Lancaster City Council to request its consideration of a facility for a skating center for the young people in the community. He used the proper procedure to voice the issue to council and presented the issue in a dignified and informed manner.
    He stated the reasons this issue should be given consideration by council members and also offered a solution to accept his idea. It might be a possibility this young man has a future in politics.

  • Buford High engineering class deserves praise

    I would like to say thank you to the parents and staff for the support given to the Buford High School’s engineering program on Dec. 9.
    Kurt Weeks and his class had a fantastic presentation and the students did an excellent job of presenting themselves and their projects.
    Each year Buford High School has a presentation ceremony for the first engineering class.
    The students build models of miniature golf courses and present them as if they are truly trying to sell their product and ideals to our community.

  • Show concern for Americans this Christmas

    As the holidays approach, the giant Asian factories are kicking into high gear to provide Americans with monstrous piles of cheaply produced goods – merchandise that has been produced at the expense of American labor.
    This year will be different. This year, Americans will give the gift of genuine concern for other Americans. There is no longer an excuse that, at gift-giving time, nothing can be found that is produced by American hands. Yes, there is!

  • Experience teaches what’s important in life

    Editor’s note: Lancaster resident Jody Miles had a liver transplant one year ago on Nov. 30. She wrote this letter then expressing her feelings of gratitude. She would like to share it with you.
    Some situations remind me of Forest Gump’s statement that “life is like a box of chocolates. You never know what you’re going to get.”

  • Democrats fail to address chronic problems

    The article, “Dinner and a pep talk,” in the Dec. 4 edition of The Lancaster News shows why the Democrats keep losing credibility. Obviously they have already forgotten what happened in the 2010 elections. They try to blame Republicans for turning their back on seniors, but conveniently fail to mention that the payoll tax cut (formerly called FICA) Obama wants continued is a direct $175 billion annual reduction in funding to Social Security and Medicare at the very time demands on those programs are up.

  • Students seeking historical info about county

    I am Zoe Byrd from Discovery School. Our school is hosting a Discover Lancaster on March 14, 2012, at the University of South Carolina Lancaster. We are hoping to use or borrow artifacts, pictures or history about Lancaster County from citizens or residents. We would appreciate them. Each grade will be presenting a different time period. Our fifth-grade class has most recent from the 1920s to the current day.
    If you can help us, call Discovery School at (803) 285-8430.

  • Banks get bailouts, why not the others?

    Senior adults, widows, disabled people in nursing homes are all being hit with bank fees. Banks get federal bailouts, but not senior citizens and disabled people. Why not?
