Today's Opinions

  • Using fear to sway opinion against Obama ‘immoral’

    Upon reading the Dec. 3 edition of the Lancaster News, which, granted is odd for an 18-year-old high school senior, I could not contain my shock and incredulity at Rudy Schmidt (“Writer warns Americans about fake legislation,”) who blatantly and patently lied about President-elect Obama’s intentions of creating a mandatory private police force of youth.

  • Robinson Concert ‘beautiful, inspiring’

    Our sixth Helen Robinson Memorial Concert held on Nov. 23 at First United Methodist Church was such a beautiful and inspiring occasion – an appropriate opening for the Thanksgiving season.

    The United Methodist Women wish to thank Chris Lucas and especially Greg Summers for the supportive role and careful attention to the publicity each year. Greg is so helpful and interested in facts and details that promote our program and for this we are grateful and most appreciative.

  • Bail out the unemployed; then economy will improve

    This bail out for banks and other big corporations really concerns me. We, the unemployed, need a bail out.

    Our unemployment benefits are exhausted and we are still unemployed. Yet no one is bailing us out. We have families who are suffering.

    Gas prices are going down, but the cost for food and utilities is not.  

    We have to toss our needs into a hat. We can’t even hink about our wants.

    Every time we turn on the TV, all that is on the news is talk about the bail outs and more layoffs across the nation.

  • Writer takes offense at Kersey’s words

    I was deeply disturbed by the words used by my County Councilman Wayne Kersey at a recent council meeting.

    According to The Lancaster News, Mr. Kersey said, “Lancaster already seems like the ‘thug’ capital of America, and was deemed ‘one of the worst places in America to live’ by a recent Internet article.” He also said he didn’t know where this county was headed, but it’s not up.

  • Writer: Going to church a matter of choice

    After reading Russell Dwyer’s letter, “Council doesn’t care about small business,” I had to respond. First of all, Dwyer is right, Christmas is not forever and yes, Christmas is the heart of retail shopping and yes, a lot of business owners depend on this part of the year to bring up sales.

  • Another great job by Coach Bennie McMurray

    I have great admiration for legendary Hall of Fame and former Shrine Bowl Coach Bennie McMurray. He has won everywhere he has been. Whether it is baseball or football he has been a state championship coach. If you think that taking the Lancaster Bruins’ football team to the semi-finals of the South Carolina state playoffs was an exceptional feat then how about taking a brand new high school to the football semi-finals in North Carolina several years ago in just their third year in existence?

  • Repentance is changed we need in America

    Thank God for a man like Dr. Steve Stewart, who wrote the column, “America is paying the price for turning back on God,” in the Nov. 12 edition of The Lancaster News.

    America has forgotten God. Morality has gone and been replaced with affluent living. We have wiped out a generation with abortion. Repent means to change one’s mind. This is the change we need for our country.

     

  • District mishandled missing money case

    No jury will ever hear the case of the missing student government money and unreported staff absences at Indian Land High School.

    Sixth Circuit Solicitor Doug Barfield recently wrapped up his investigation of the case and concluded that, although something in there stinks, there’s no way to prove just what happened and who might owe what.
