Today's Opinions

  • 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.

  • It is important for people to vote

    Now that the voting is over, I congratulate the winners, but remind them to keep all campaign promises.

    You were voted into this office and we, the citizens and voters, can remove you from office by not casting our vote for you in two or four years. Your score card will be the ballot box.

    The reason there were unqualified candidates on the ballot is because voters did not take the time to vote in the primary.

  • Obama victory shows American progress

    Many Americans thought they’d never live to see a day like Tuesday, Nov. 4, 2008. Barack Obama, the first-term U.S. senator from Illinois, was elected the 44th president of the United States. The Democrat defeated Republican John McCain to win the presidency.

  • Editorial pages full of hot air

    Congratulations on discovering how to capture hot air and put it in the editorial section of the newspaper – especially the six pages in the Oct. 31 edition.

    I look forward to the day when you demonstrate the use of that same hot air to solve our dependence upon imported oil for energy.

    Do you really think political commentary influences anybody’s decision to vote for or against an individual?

  • County Council did the right thing

    Editor Barbara Rutledge quoted letter writer James McManus in her column, “Some spooky stuff going on in this election,” in Sunday’s edition of The Lancaster News.

    McManus said “a dysfuncational County Council (is) ramming a $32 million courthouse down our throats.”

  • Bands gain valuable recognition

    As far as state championship dreams go this fall, bands at Indian Land and Andrew Jackson high schools didn’t see their lofty visions reach fruition.

    This is not to say, a dedicated effort wasn’t there.

    The fact that each group of musicians from those respective county schools competed on the state level speaks volumes of the work and dedication they have put forth. It takes quite an effort to earn the right to compete for state honors.
