Today's Opinions

  • Writer challenges Jedson’s letter

    It was appropriate to publish Michael Jedson’s letter (and super pile of propaganda,) “Facts, without the whining and ranting,” on Super Bowl Sunday. There is enough no-fact information there to tax even Snopes’ capability. Even Phil Noble could not match this pile of falsehoods.

  • Beware of falling gas prices

    As I am, I’m sure you’re excited about falling gas prices. But I have to warn you, it won’t last long. And it will cost us, all of us more in the end.

  • Community makes Shoebox for Seniors a success

    I would like to give a special thanks to all of the churches, schools, organizations and individuals that participated in the Shoebox for Senior’s project in December 2014.

    This project, sponsored by the Lancaster County Council on Aging, continues to grow more and more each year. The gifts that we receive are sent out to our home-delivered meal clients and if there are enough gifts we also give gifts to our group dining clients.

  • A different view of Lancaster on Christmas Day

    My sons and their families visited me before Christmas Day, so on Christmas morning I decided I would eat at a local restaurant.

    I went to several – JoMars, Gus’, Arby’s – they all were closed.

    The North Main Shopping Center was empty. There was only one car in the Walmart parking lot.

    Then I saw where both McDonald’s and Hardee’s were open.

  • Immigration, border security, executive amnesty – Oh my

    By now, most folks know that President Barack Obama – actually the secretary of Homeland Security – issued certain orders in November of last year that allowed about 5 million people who were in the country illegally to stay here.

    If he had stopped there, then this column might have been about the relative merits (or demerits) of doing that. However, he also did several other things, including giving those same people the right to work. That is something else entirely.

  • Your help makes bicycle ministry a success

    We truly thank each and everyone of you who played a part in bringing so many smiles and miracles to 78 children and 38 families this past Christmas through Gonzie’s Miracle Bike Ministry.

    Each year, we experience and personally witness many touching stories to share.

    I try to the best of my ability to treat folks fair and honest and to have open arms whenever there is a need to meet.

    Take this one, for example: Before Christmas, one family member who came by the shop and “wanted” five “new” bicycles.

  • Correction

    Indian Land resident Cecil Sexton said in his Feb. 4 letter that Lancaster County did a “lousy job” on some road repair at the corner of U.S. 521 and River Road.

    Lancaster County Administrator Steve Willis said the county is not responsible for either road.

    Jeff Catoe, Lancaster County Public Works director, said the cut was a “utility cut” and that the S.C. Department of Transportation told the utility provider that the stone placed in the cut was unacceptable.

  • Opportunities abound at USCL, Palmetto College

    One of the questions I am often asked when I am in the community is, “Your campus has grown so much over the years, when are you going to become a four-year campus?”

    My answer is, “While we remain the largest two-year campus in the USC system, eight four-year degrees are now available right here.”
