Today's Opinions

  • Shoes stolen from patient in emergency room

    This is a letter to the person who stole my shoes from the emergency room at Springs Memorial Hospital on Nov. 25. You are probably all smiles because you think you got away with something that didn’t belong to you. I’m sure you didn’t even stop to think that the person you stole from was so sick that I couldn’t even hold my head up, let alone keep up with my property.

    Folks, if you see anyone wearing leather and mesh navy blue shoes with pink stripes (New Balance) they could be mine.

  • Christmas is a season of giving. It’s a time for love and joy at seeing excitement sparkle in the eyes of children. Nothing can replace the smiles and giggles when children look upon the whimsical magic the Christmas holidays bring to the world.

    For six years, ever since moving to Lancaster, Jan and Jerry of McIllwain Road have opened their hearts to the place they now call home by taking great pains to put up an elaborate display to celebrate the season and bring pleasure to those who drive by to view it. It has become known as the Christmas House.

  • Writer praises local dealership

    I am writing to congratulate a local business on its superb customer service. I purchased a vehicle from Lancaster Dodge Chrysler Jeep Inc. two years ago. I am not fond of car shopping because of the many bad experiences I have had with car salesmen. I am proud to say the Lancaster County is blessed with a dealership that has changed my perspective.

  • 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.
