Today's Opinions

  • Education important to our children

    I am so mad at Gov. Mark Sanford for thinking of closing the University of South Carolina at Lancaster campus. It really makes me mad. Add to that the county is building a new courthouse. There are existing buildings that could suffice for that use. Our children and grandchildren need the campus to expand their education. Higher education is so important to our community and our children. Our children are our future and Gov. Sanford wants to take this campus from them. What is this telling our children?

    I agree with Steve Willis. Gov. Sanford is certified squirrel bait.

  • Obama ushers in new era

    Today is a day that many people thought they’d never live to see – a day when a black man holds the highest elective office in the country.

    So much has already been said about this fact since the historic election of Barack Obama as president in November. But it’s a milestone that can’t be overstated, considering how divisive an issue race has been since the founding of this country.

  • Let Sanford know how you feel about his proposal

    This letter is out of concern about the closing of the University of South Carolina at Lancaster campus. I want to thank Lancaster County Administrator Steve Willis for his description of Gov. Mark Sanford. When I heard about the governor’s proposal to close USCL on WSOC News, I used the same words – looney tunes and out of his mind.

    I know the economy is bad and I understand our state has to watch the budget. I do not understand why the governor wants to take away something that is so important to our county.

  • Let ‘your’ governor know how you feel

    On Jan. 11, I went to the www.scgovernor.com Web site to send an e-mail to Mark Sanford to express my disappointment about his misinformed views of the University of South Carolina at Lancaster.

    I wanted to inform your governor that his information was flawed and he should take another look at what impact the regional campus in Lancaster had on this area.

  • Sanford’s priorities skewed

    I am outraged at Mark Sanford’s proposal to close the University of South Carolina at Lancaster as a way to cut costs in the state budget. My family is personally affected by his proposal.

  • Closing USCL would be Sanford’s biggest mistake

    I think it is a shame that Gov. Mark Sanford would even consider closing the University of South Carolina Lancaster campus.

    My daughter signed up for classes last week, and has a LIFE scholarship and a PELL grant. We make too much money for her to qualify for any other type of financial aid, yet we don’t make enough to pay tuition at a four-year state university. We make less than $50,000 per year, yet the government doesn’t take into consideration we are a family of seven and we have to pay rent, utilities, car payments, etc.

  • Agency grateful for Shoebox for Seniors donations

    I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the wonderful people who donated gifts to Shoebox for Seniors, a project sponsored by the Lancaster County Council on Aging.

  • Goodwill grateful for donations

    We live in an extraordinarily caring community. While that fact is not new, it is certainly worth repeating and celebrating. Let me add one more example.
