Today's Opinions

  • Furr’s legacy continues through scholarships

    To turn a tragic event into something positive can be a catharsis. Sharon Furr knows. April 4, 2009, was a tragic day for Furr and her family.
    Furr’s sister, Cindy Furr, and her 2-year-old niece, McAllister “Mackie” Furr, were on their way to church when one of two vehicles racing on S.C. 49 in the Lake Wylie community crashed into Furr’s car. Furr died on impact and Mackie not long after. Also killed was 13-year-old Hunter Holt, a passenger in the car that crashed into Furr’s vehicle.

  • Business partnerships enhance education

    Whether in a good or bad economy, South Carolinians need family-supporting jobs. Recognizing this need, business, education and legislative leaders crafted the Education and Economic Development Act (EEDA) in 2005.

  • Mulvaney takes issue with Obama’s speech

    I didn’t like President Barack Obama’s State of the Union speech, but probably not for the reasons most people expect.
    Indeed, there were parts of the speech that I thought were praiseworthy, and, at times, inspiring.

  • Basu’s visit to Lancaster was not good-will gesture

    Moni Basu was born in Calcutta, India. Though India has become one of the fastest-growing economies and is a somewhat newly industrialized country, it continues to face poverty, corruption and lack of adequate health care.
    I don’t believe that Moni was born into a poor family though; her father was a college professor.
    In my research on Moni I found that she had attended challenging schools In England and India and that American schools didn’t have that much to offer her, so she graduated at the age of 15.

  • Donations continues Kersey’s legacy

    Mike  Kersey is gone, but certainly not forgotten.
    The emotional wrestling coach and elementary school physical education teacher had that type of impact on students, no matter their age.
    He knew how to motivate the heavyweight wrestler to reach his potential on the mat, and at the same time had the knack for making exercise fun for the most reluctant elementary school student.
    Kersey, who died last fall, was that type person. Across the county and state, in wrestling circles, Kersey is regarded as an icon.

  • United States is on the brink of obscurity

    Where are Washington and Lincoln? Our country sinks into obscurity while our leaders throw us crumbs.

  • Conservatives and liberals are competing ideologies

    In three recent opinion letters, two men identified themselves as non-partisan independent thinking men who actually are liberal Democrat supporters proven by their use of Democrat talking points.

  • We are Lancaster! or are we?

    I am writing concerning the We Are Lancaster! signs. First, I agree with the notion that the sign is implying we are unified as a community and stand together against certain views of our place of residence.
