Today's Opinions

  • Rudy Carter sounds just like a politician

    Rudy Carter was quoted as saying, “The public has got to understand the court is the prominent voice of the law.

    When you walk in a courthouse, you have to feel like you’re in a court of law.”

    The first sentence makes “the law” sound like some kind of mystical thing, more like a religion than what it really is.

    Unlike God’s Law, our law is simply a set of rules man has set to maintain order and protect citizen’s rights.

  • What politics should be

    Sometimes it seems that getting politicians to focus on issues is a lot like getting kids to eat their vegetables – and there’s some truth to that.

    Most politicians explain this by blaming voters, saying we don’t care about ideas. They assume that we’re more interested in a discussion of unwed mothers or irate preachers – or about where someone’s kids go to school. Certainly, most current politics is aimed at that level (or lower).

  • Business owner thanks patrons

    Kershaw is a wonderful beautiful small southern town with folks from all walks of life.

    For me what makes Kershaw so special is its people. They are straight-forward, kind, caring and friendly.

    The pride of the south has left a record of courage and audacity that endures to this day.

    The American Dream I believe in is a good work ethic my grandpa taught me to work six days a week and go to church on the seventh day.

    I have always taken my job seriously and I'm very proud that I can help and serve with hard work and sacrifice.

  • Younger generation vote way they want

    I have tuned in to both conventions. One thing the Republican Party truly does not seem to understand is that a lot of the younger generations, those who are 18-40, do not want a politician who has a big military- and political-experienced resume. It's not working for the United States.

    And we'll vote in whatever way will lead the USA in a new approach to the world.

  • County is considering courthouse costs, future

    Recent letters published in The Lancaster News expressed opinions that the proposed county courthouse does not need to be a $33 million palace and that any vacant storefront should qualify as a replacement facility.

    I wholeheartedly concur we shouldn't build a palace. However, that doesn't automatically shrink the potential cost of the new building. As to utilizing vacant retail structures, security concerns remove that as an option.

  • We don't need to make a palace of the courthouse

    I was quite impressed with Dave Zoglman’s guest column. “New courthouse doesn’t need to be a $33M palace,” in the Aug. 27 edition of The Lancaster News.

    The mills and the bleachery are closed.

  • McCantses enjoy Ben Snipes rodeo

    The Ben Snipes rodeo was wonderful again. I couldn’t believe it when we saw cowboys from Lancaster who looked like they weighed 100 pounds climb on a bull and ride.

    Billy Dale loved it. We all had a great time. He still likes the cowgirls.

    The food is great and so is the entertainment.

    You missed it if you didn’t go. I encourage you all to go the next rodeo Ben brings to Lancaster.

    Thanks again, Susan and Ben.

  • A prayer for fighting men, women

    God bless our fighting men and women as they fight a war we must win.

    Bless their families as they endure time away from their loved ones. Help them defeat the enemy and return home to their loved ones.

    God bless all the families of our brave men and women who have given their lives for this country, past and present.

    To all our veterans, we thank you. God bless you all and God bless America – she will not fall.
