Today's Opinions

  • 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.

  • America is paying price for turning back on God

    I am not a racist. I have never been accused of being racially prejudiced or biased. The following remarks have nothing to do with race, color, nationality or ethnicity.

    I did not vote against Barack Obama because of his race. As a matter of fact, my choice for president was Alan Keyes.

  • Long, Thomas set example for clean campaign race

    No matter the outcome it was a historic race. The winner of the S.C. House District 45 seat was going to be filled by the first woman or the first black since Reconstruction.

    Fort Mill optometrist Deborah Long defeated Lancaster County Council member Fred Thomas in the general election. Long, an Indian Land resident, garnered 11,051 votes, or almost 57 percent of the vote. Thomas, a Lancaster resident, had 8,422 votes, or 43 percent.

  • Web site keeps reader updated about county

    The web site of The Lancaster News and Carolina Gateway enables me to keep abreast of local happenings.

    The Washington Post and some regional newspapers serve me in Lexington Park, Md., about an hour’s drive from Washington.

    Recently, a news story originating from Forbes, was a real shocker. Lay-offs, shut-downs and plant closings seem to occur all over the country, but it appeared from the Forbes article, Lancaster had been dealt the worst blow in the country.

  • Bundy’s leadership evident in county, S.C.

    Charles Bundy, a fixture in Lancaster County success over the years, recently received an honor which once again reflects his dedicated service to our community.

    The S.C. Hospital Association (SCHA) presented its highest honor in hospital trustee leadership to Bundy, board chairman of Springs Memorial Hospital.

    Bundy was selected a 2008 SCHA Distinguished Hospital Trustee of the Year on Sept. 20 at the annual Trustee Administrator Physician (TAP) Conference of the S.C. Hospital Association.

  • Let's hope America hasn't been fooled

    Let’s take a look at some facts about our new president.

    1. Radical ties

    Bill Ayers – Terrorist, socialist. Teaches changing America to socialist society starting with school system.

    Rev. Wright – Trinity United Church of Christ. Church calls for Marxist class warfare and radical socialist element with black radicalism. Obama member for more than 20 years.
