Today's Opinions

  • America is turning into a group of tribes

    I am writing as an American, who has watched the erosion of my country since my birth. We are at a crossroads of self-destruction just as many great countries have been throughout history. Whether we come out of it as a nation that is recognizable to us or not will be left to the means of its people.

    Until we stop these Democrat, Republican and Independent parties of discussion we are going to become nothing more than a group of tribes.

  • Remember, love is a verb

    I recently accompanied my daughter to the S.C. Employment Security Commission. I dropped her off about 10:30 a.m. and ran some errands. When I returned at 11:30 there was still a huge line of people left to be seen. My daughter had not yet been seen and I sat down and waited with her for awhile.

  • Focus should be on issues, not insults

    This is in response to W.B. Evans’ letter, “A new political party emerges in Lancaster,” in the July 15 edition of The Lancaster News.

    Mr. Evans, my small church has no choir, but on occasion our congregation has sung, “Praise God from Whom all Blessings Flow.” I am puzzled as to why in your letter to the editor you raised the question of whether we who attended the Independence Day TEA party sing this song.

  • Call centers not all about harassing

    In the June 14 edition of The Lancaster News, W.B. Evans’ letter, “Call center jobs allow unemployed to harass the unemployed,” he makes references to the call center training. “Ain’t America great? An opportunity for unemployed Lancasterians to get a job that will entail calling those still unemployed Lancasterians and blessing them out over past due credit cards,” he wrote.

  • Writer prays for those who closed fire department

    To all the County Council members who voted to close Pleasant Hill Fire Department: Just to let you know I am praying for you. I just hope you prayed for this closing because if you didn’t, you better ask for forgiveness. You let a lot of people down in Pleasant Hill by closing this fire department. How many mistakes have you made and had to ask for another chance?

  • Paper should warn about dangers of alcohol

    I am an old 5-and-dime cowboy who draws a little Social Security. Like most cowboys I still work because I don’t have a 401K. I don’t have a hidden agenda or an ax to grind, but The Lancaster News seems to publicize smoking is not a good thing and I agree that it is not healthy.

  • Pleasant Hill Fire Department will be missed

    I would like to thank all past and present of the Pleasant Hill Volunteer Fire Department and their families for the wonderful service they have given to Pleasant Hill and the surrounding communities over the years.

  • Put litter in its appropriate place, not on my lawn

    I stepped outside my house a few days ago and noticed that someone decided to redecorate my yard with various cups, beer cans and a pizza box. Apparently, someone driving along on the road I live on thought it would be appropriate to toss this garbage out of their car and onto my lawn.

    There are at least five convenience stores within five minutes of my house, where someone could stop by and drop off their trash in an outside trash can, since apparently there is a pressing need that requires this trash to be discarded of immediately.
