Today's Opinions

  • County needs company like Springs

    When I was 16 years old I went to work for Springs Industries. I was a clean up, blow-off hand on the second shift in the weave room. I worked for Springs most of my working life. It was the place to work.

    All of us who worked for Springs had a job that we knew was going to give us full-time work. I worked hard and tried to make the most of my job. I was fortunate enough to get a number of appointments in supervision.

  • Support veterans by attending parade

    They represented various wars – World War II, Korea, Vietnam and Iraq. There were even some prisoners of war.

    They – veterans – were participating in last year’s Veterans Day parade in downtown Lancaster. They were the honorees. Those standing on the sidewalks, waving their hands and small American flags were doing the honoring.

  • LHS tennis team has successful program

     A rising star in Lancaster High School fall sports is the Lady Bruins’ tennis program.

  • McGriff fair, open-minded, represents all citizens

    I write in support of my friend and colleague, Charlene McGriff, as she makes her bid for Lancaster County Council District 2 seat. I met Charlene in 1992 after my father-in-law, T.T. Barnes, realized that both Charlene and I were  concerned with the plight of young males in Lancaster County.

  • AJ Middle volleyball team 'made us proud'

    This letter is in regard to a great group of young ladies and the record they accomplished as members of the Andrew Jackson Middle School volleyball team. The girls ended up the season with a 16-1 record.

    They practiced hard, learned a lot, played well and made us proud. I think their coach is the kind of good influence you want young people to learn from. I didn’t make it to every game, but I know most of their parents, grandparents and family members did. It was wonderful for their support.

  • Something illegal going on in District 2 election

    Please help me to understand this write-in campaign. The winner in the primary Charlene McGriff, who is unopposed, is now facing a write-in from someone other than Blondale Funderburk and the write-in is not disclosing their name. Is this legal? Who is requesting the absentee ballot?  If the person is not disclosing his or her name how is the name being signed on the ballots? It seems to me someone is collecting ballots from residents in District 2 and writing in a name.

  • Lancaster fortunate to have Memorial Park

    After having a negative concern with a cemetery in North Carolina, it made us realize how fortunate Lancaster residents are to have Lancaster Memorial Park.

    The grounds are always so well maintained, the staff and family are friendly, kind and respectful to visitors or a bereaved family.

  • Funderburk: Support McGriff in special election

    I am Blondale Funderburk, a former candidate for the vacant County Council District 2 seat. I was given a wonderful opportunity to represent our county in the Sept. 15 primary election. However the district cast its votes for Charlene McGriff.

    As we move forward to the Nov. 3 special election, we as a district, must focus our attention on the Nov. 3 candidate.

    I would like to thank District 2 residents for their support and I look forward to representing them in the future.
