Today's Opinions

  • Mulvaney response to issue 'amazing'

    In answer to Jane Massey’s letter last week, I really do not care who takes credit for the mowing either.

    However, if Mick Mulvaney wants to have an political sign on his tractor, in this freedom of speech country, what is the probem?

    It just so happens that as a private citizen, I asked Rep. Mulvaney about getting the roadways cut. I thought his response was amazing.

    If we had waited for the S.C. Department of Transportation, there would have been a safety issue at every intersection along that stretch of highway.

  • Students need more school choice options in S.C.

    Apparently, Mandy Powers Norrell does not see the big picture about why school choice is the answer for all children in our state.

    She credits public schools and the teachers who nurtured, pushed and believed in her. Apparently, she was a typical child. But what happens to a special needs child? My son got pushed – to the back of the classroom and right out the door.

    School choice is one option for children like my son. They cannot learn in a one-size-fits-all educational setting. Parents deserve more school choice options to help educate their children in our state.

  • Mulvaney right person to represent us in Senate

    There have been numerous comments in this newspaper suggesting that no one seems to know anything about Mick Mulvaney, who is running for the S.C. Senate.

  • Meet, greet candidates at two upcoming forums

    Got a question for a candidate running for office this year? If you do, you may want to ask a question and submit it for one of two upcoming political forums.

    Candidates will be asked questions from voters at the Before You Vote 2008 Candidate Forum this Tuesday at the Indian Land Middle School gym. They will also face voters’ questions at a second forum slated for Oct. 21 at Bundy Auditorium at the Bradley Arts and Sciences Building at the University of South Carolina at Lancaster.

  • Time to change outsider' perception of Southerners

    I would like to respond to L.R. McGuire’s letter “Don’t use birthplace against a candidate,” in the Oct. 1 edition of The Lancaster News. My input has to do more with how some people moving into our area feel about us and our schools.

  • Civil rights not afforded to true victims

    I am writing regarding the article “Group wants to ensure teen gets fair shake” in the Oct. 3 edition of The Lancaster News.

    I’m glad I was sitting down when I read about this organization that will start a support group, find a lawyer and conduct a civil rights investigation.

    Well, bless his burn-down-the-courthouse, point-a-gun-in-a-few-people’s-faces, assault, kidnap and leave-an-elderly-lady-in-the-trunk-of-a-car heart.

  • Revitalize Main Street, but don't forget ghosts

    It’s been said that I concentrate too much on the past and not enough toward the revitalization of Main Street. In my youth, this Main Street was the hub, the main drag, the centralized business district of Lancaster and its rural communities.

  • Children need mother, father

    I am concerned about the inmates in the Lancaster County Detention Center. Every person in the center is guilty of a crime. Most of them out there are there for not paying child support. That’s not really a crime, because if that is the case there are a lot of people who are guilty.
