Today's Opinions

  • Literacy Council appreciates support

    The 10th Annual Family Literacy Fair was a success again this year thanks to the agencies that participated and the community members who came out to enjoy the event.  
    On behalf of the Lancaster County Literacy Council, Lancaster County Library and BEST AmeriCorps, I would like to thank the following local businesses for making it possible for this family friendly event to remain free to everyone:  Sonic, SnoBiz, CarQuest and Food Lion.

  • Our county GOP is getting involved with more local events

    It’s great to let you all know what has been happening in the world of the Lancaster County Republican Party.
    I don’t believe we have stopped since we started. I know the virtual world is full of the latest and greatest information, but many of you do not have that access.
    So, if you see any of us on the street, come up to us and chat for a minute. We would be more than happy to fill you in.

  • Recycling will ease our landfill woes

    Some issues we report on remind us of the arcade game, Whack-a-Mole. Take landfills, for example. This year, landfill issues have been big news in Lancaster County.

  • Old Lancaster courthouse is an historical treasure

    Nov. 4, 1828, (183 years ago) must have been a big day in the little upcountry town of Lancasterville. On that day, Stephen Decatur Miller headed a state delegation to inspect the new Lancasterville Courthouse.
    One month later, Miller, who was born in the Waxhaws of Lancaster County, would be elected the new governor of South Carolina.

  • A love letter and challenge to Lancaster

    For those who don’t know me, I’m Jody Miles, director of Christian Services. Perhaps, you’ve followed my story in The Lancaster News. I am the one blessed with a new beginning as a result of a successful liver transplant last November.
    I want my community to know your prayers and friendship have touched me and so many others. Everywhere I go people say how encouraging my story is and that my outcome inspires hope for their own situations.

  • Dog owner should not be penalized

  • Let council know that we want best for our future

    I am concerned about Lancaster County Council and the citizens of Lancaster County. Now that my children are older, I have turned my sights on keeping our county afloat amidst the financial uncertainty.

  • Purpose of courthouse is to administer justice

    Editor’s note: The following is speech given by Robert Folks, president of the Lancaster County Bar Association at the dedication of the new Lancaster County Courthouse on May 12.
    My name is Robert Folks and it is my honor to serve as president of the Lancaster County Bar Association at the time of this momentous occasion.
    I am reminded today of comments made by my fellow attorney, Mitch Norrell, at the groundbreaking for this facility not so many months ago. He served then as president of the local bar as I am today.
