  • Writer recommends the movie 'Fireproof'

    “Fireproof” is a movie worth watching. It is a very good film for everyone. It is about time someone came out with a film that the entire family can watch. It has a good lesson for helping struggling marriages. It comes at a time in history where the divorce rate is out the roof. I thank the people who did this film. A job well done.

  • We must treat each other with respect

    Job Development Credits (JDCs) and corporate income tax are factors in business recruitment not only in Lancaster County, but the entire state of                South Carolina. Both have support and opposition.

  • Positive economic indicators do exist

    Got the blues about the economy? You’re not alone. A lot of folks are feeling stressed, anxious and, yes, depressed about the recession.

    But please don’t shoot spitballs at us because we’re messengers of bad news. We want the economy to get out of this rut, because we’re affected by tough times, too. Unfortunately, in the past week or so, there has been more bad economic news to report.

  • CareNet helping people every day

    CareNet recently celebrated a milestone – its first anniversary of full-time operation at its clinic in Medical Arts Building 5 near Springs Memorial Hospital.

    That anniversary comes at a time when the national economy is on the rocks and the local unemployment rate is staggering – 17.5 percent in January, according to the latest state figures.

  • Litterbugs ignorant, nave, deniers and outlaws

    Litterbugs ignorant, naïve, deniers

    and outlaws

    Things I have learned about litterbugs.

    1. They are as numerous and as pesky as fire ants and mosquitoes.

    2. They are as hard to get rid of as bed bugs or fleas.

    3. In spite of their tenaciousness, litterbugs are not a hardy breed. When it is cold or rainy, they don’t like to open their car windows to throw out litter.

    4. Most litterbugs smoke cigarettes, others get takeout from fast food restaurants – and horrors – some even drink alcoholic beverages while driving.

  • Crawford shows true character in decision

    The men’s 200-meter dash at the Beijing Summer Olympics took a record-shattering 19.30 seconds to decide a world champion.

    Jamaican sprinter Usain Bolt’s dazzling effort smashed a 12-year mark, giving him the coveted gold medal in blazing fashion.

    The rest of the finish wasn’t nearly as easy to figure.

    In fact, it took more than six months to decide the silver and bronze medal winners.

  • Family grateful to those helped injured woman

    My 85-year-old mother and her sister were enjoying their girls’ day out last Thursday when my mother fell. With a bag in her hand, she simply did not see the curb retainer in the parking lot of Dollar General. She hit the pavement full force with her face and was profusely bleeding from the nose.

    Our family wants to thank the kind gentleman who lifted her up and placed her in her car and insisted that she go to the hospital. We thank the wonderful lady who put her arms around Mother and had a prayer with her. Mother said that was the sweetest prayer she had ever heard.

  • City right to save historic church

    Lancaster City Council has stepped up to the plate with its decision to authorize $200,000 from its hospitality tax funds to help restore Old Lancaster Presbyterian Church on West Gay Street. City Council voted unanimously March 10 to allocate the funds to help restore the historic church – the second-oldest brick structure in the county.
