Today's Opinions

  • A Friday night at Chick-fil-A turned out to be not such a fun night for my kids and me.

    Our baby daughter has severe asthma. Just minutes after sitting down to eat with four of our children, our baby went into an asthma attack. That escalated into a mini seizure.

    I took the baby to the restroom and was unsuccessful in her recovery. I then began to gather the other children as quickly and quietly as I could to get the baby to the car for a breathing treatment.

  • S.C.’s No. 1 industry is homegrown – forestry

    With financial markets reeling and much effort being made to attract new out-of-state and foreign investment, we should not overlook an industry that has been operating in South Carolina since the first settlers arrived and has been considered to be the state’s first industry.

    This business has continually expanded and still has huge growth potential, both literally and figuratively. That industry is our homegrown economic engine of forestry.

  • CCA Cougars volleyball team top cats this season

    The 2008 men’s volleyball season at Carolina Christian Academy is one which won’t soon be forgotten.

    State championship seasons have their special places in our memory banks and trophy cases.

    The fans who back the Cougars’ volleyball team will have plenty to savor in this banner season for the Lancaster private school.

    CCA won its first-ever men’s volleyball state championship, taking a 3-1 win over Union Christian Day School of Union last month.

  • Sumner a man of his word; committed to citizens

    I would like to start by saying how proud I am of Bill Sumner. He ran an honest campaign with no deceit or underhandedness.

    I am biased because he is my dad. I can only hope for the citizens of City Council District 4 that your new council person will be willing to give up family obligations for the city of Lancaster. My dad always responded to the calls of District 4 citizens because when he became a city councilman he made a commitment to you. He is a man of his word, no matter what was going on.

  • Heath Springs Elementary first class everyday

    During the recent political campaign I heard candidates mention the local school districts as the city of Lancaster, Indian Land and the rural districts of Buford and Kershaw. I wanted to remind them that we are in reality, one district. Most of us feel very positive about the school our children or grandchildren attend, and so do I.

  • Writer: Obama not black; he’s biracial

    Please explain to me and your readers why the news media insists on calling Barack Hussein Obama the “first black man to take the presidential oath.”

    He isn’t anymore black than white. He is biracial.

    Rob Emory’s column, “Let’s hope America hasn’t been fooled,” in the Nov. 7 edition of The Lancaster News, hits the nail on the head and accurately alerts everyone to what we may be facing.

    Your newspaper staff is obviously caught up in the moment.

  • Lancaster fortunate to have such great volunteers

    I have been very saddened recently to see the obituaries of two of my good friends, Connie Francavilgia and Sarah Hunter. I worked with the two ladies as volunteers at Springs Memorial Hospital during my early teen years. They as well as my late grandmother, Reba Ballard, gave countless hours to serve as volunteers at the hospital.

  • We must show our gratitude to veterans

    First of all, I would like to personally thank all the veterans for their service to our country.

    I was very disappointed that so few came out to the Veteran’s Day Parade on Nov. 8 to show support for these men and women who have served so we can have the freedoms we still have here in the United States. Some even lost their lives doing so. The very least we can do is show our appreciation and gratitude for what they have done.
