Today's Opinions

  • 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.

  • Are you better off then you were $5 trillion ago?

    There seems to be a lot of Democrat spinning here lately. No one is saying that only Democrats have made mistakes. However, denying them just reduces liberal credibility.

  • Don’t pass timber regulation

    Iam vIery disturbed by the fact that a new resolution is being introduced to deal with the use of public roads relating to timber harvesting.
    It disturbs me to think that a rural county like Lancaster would consider now over-regulating, overburdening and stifling an important industry to South Carolina.
    It might not be known that the timber and related industries employ more than 175,000 people in the state with an economic impact of $15 billion. This industry is now the largest employer in South Carolina!

  • We’re all riled up over CNN portrayal

    I was very happy with the turnout for the S.C. Republican primary. The voters cast their ballots in almost record numbers.
    Because South Carolina had a significant impact in the process of picking a GOP candidate, news reporters from all over were here. A reporter from CNN, Moni Basu, wrote an article I found extremely offensive, not only to the people of Lancaster County, but also the city of Lancaster. She asked the question, “How are finance and faith going to play a role in how you will vote?”

  • Only fools don’t change with the times

    This is a response to Bruce Miller’s guest column, “Put America first, not your political party,” published in the Dec. 30, 2011, edition of The Lancaster News.
    I really would prefer not to agree with a depressed Republican/tea party supporter. Yes, you gave U.S. Rep. Mick Mulvaney the benefit of the doubt.
    Unfortunately the tea party experience produced congressional gridlock. The lobbyists appear to be in charge and few in the House or Senate appear to have any backbone to stop it.
