Today's Opinions

  • Please keep bus stops clear so our children can be seen

    It’s that time of year again, folks. School has started and buses are rolling about 6:15 a.m. each day. If you have children who will be waiting at bus stops, please cut the grass and clear the area around the bus stops so passers by can see your child in the wee hours of the morning.
    Lancaster County appears to be so broke that many roads are now overgrown, limiting the ability to see. We truly do not want to have any harm come to our children. So, please folks, cut, cut, cut that grass.
    Our students, parents and drivers would greatly appreciate it.

  • We should be proud of Murphy’s response

    So often media reporters have a tendency to place undue blame or financial hardship on individuals or companies in their quest for hard-hitting news.
    Chris Sardelli’s article, “Cars damaged in gas mix-up at Murphy’s,” in the Aug. 10 edition of The Lancaster News, clearly outlined the costly mistake made that resulted in many vehicle owners becoming distraut.

  • The left labels TEA Party as terrorists

    Here we go again. Now that the left has failed to codify the Taxed Enough Already (TEA) Party as racists, they have turned to using the term of “terrorists.” The media, Democratic congressmen, and even the vice president have used the words “terrorists,” “jihadists” and “terrorist bombers” to erroneously vilify the TEA Party.
    This is the ultimate in hypocrisy for when the Islamists actually attacked us on 9/11 and the many attempts after, the left couldn’t bring their tiny minds to call them terrorists.

  • Writer will support alcohol sales on Sunday

    I would like to respond to Danny Johnson’s letter, “Alcohol sales on Sunday have nothing to do with eating out,” in the Aug. 10 edition of The Lancaster News.
    Mr. Johnson is entitled to God’s Day, as freedom of religion is part of our founding. That same founding calls for separation of church and state. Mr. Johnson has no right to try and force his beliefs on others.

  • Teachers educate, inspire and challenge students

    The taps on his wingtips clicking on the hardwood floor of his classroom – that’s one sound I’ll never forget from that first day in his class.
    And how professional he looked – not just that first day – but every day.
    Or how he made history come alive because he was such a great storyteller.
    Mr. Bennett Gunter shaped my ideas of how a professional educator looks, teaches and manages a class, and he gave me a vision for what education can do for a person.

  • Tanner invites residents to join Indian Land Voice

    It’s me again. Anybody out there?
    I have been working for three years to foster positive change within Indian Land by educating and informing the citizens.  I have attended Lancaster County Council meetings and spoken, been appointed to county committees, and more to represent Indian Land.

  • Everyone responsible for success of schools

    The last couple of weeks have been really busy for teachers, students and their families. Some families have been scrambling to get in those last few days of vacation fun before the school bells ring Monday morning.
    Many students and their parents took advantage of the recent sales-tax-free weekend to buy school supplies and clothes.
    For several weeks now, teachers have been preparing their classrooms for the return of students Monday.

  • Brown is deserving of honor

    One of Lancaster County’s finest is now one of the state’s best.
    Lt. Eric Brown of the Lancaster County Sheriff’s Department was recently honored as the Deputy of the Year by the Sheriff’s Association.
    Earlier this year, Brown, 33, was nominated during a management staff meeting at the office.
