Today's Opinions

  • 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.

  • Rutledge's column offended councilman

    I don’t believe the mold for honest politicians has been misplaced. But after Barbara Rutledge’s column, “Spooky stuff going on in this election,” I question whether the newspaper can identify honesty.

    Over the years I have read many articles, but I could not believe what I was reading in Sunday’s edition of The Lancaster News. All of us who are trying to do what we believe is the right thing and best for our city or county are evidently considered to be dishonest. That offended me and, hopefully, many others who are serving.

  • Shores, Sims make Troop 74 a success

    Shores, Sims make Troop 74 a success

    On Oct. 18, Boy Scout Troop 74 and several other volunteers gathered at Boan Field in Kershaw to help me complete my Eagle Scout Project. I would like to take the time to thank each one of the volunteers for their time and support to see this project through.

    I also want to thank Wal-Mart, Home Depot and Glidden Paint for their kind and generous donations toward making this project a complete success.

  • Make sure you are prepared on Election Day

    The Nov. 4 election promises to draw plenty of attention.

    If you’re a voter, we encourage you to exercise your right as a U.S. citizen. It’s part of the American process and participation should be taken seriously. The vote will greatly impact our future.

    Millions of citizens across the nation are expected to cast ballots for national, state and community leaders. A new president will be elected, so the future of our nation’s leadership will hinge on ballots cast.

    Two givens on election day are tight races and long voting lines.

  • Some spooky stuff going on in this election

    I didn’t dress up for Halloween this year. I couldn’t find the costume I wanted. Seems they have misplaced the mold for honest politicians.

    Seriously, are you sick of this year’s election process? I am.

    So, is letter writer James McManus.
