Today's Opinions

  •  Man’s problem, God’s solution

    Romans 3:9-31 clearly identifies the problem all men face and God’s solution to it. The universal problem of all men is that we all are sinners who have fallen short of the glory of God.

    No mere human being has lived a sinless life; in thought, word, and deed, every person has sinned. We have sinned in our understanding, and with our bodies.

    No matter what standard of  right living we accept or adopt, none of us has perfectly lived up to that standard. In God’s eyes, all the world is guilty of sin.

  • Tax deadline is fast approaching

    An important deadline is approaching for Lancaster County taxpayers – the closing of the county’s 2013 tax books, which takes place on March 17.

    This is an important step in the annual fiscal budgeting process for Lancaster County government, as it allows those who serve on County Council, the school board and town and city councils to determine how much tax revenue they will have to work with as they work to finish their 2014-15 budgets.

  • Council to consider TreeTops development proposal Monday

    The Mattamy Homes proposal for a residential development on the TreeTops site on Van Wyck Road is expected to come before Lancaster County Council at 6:30 p.m. Monday, March 10, in the County Administration Building, 101 N. Main St.

    Eagle Rock Camp, an organization dedicated to helping the families of service members with service-related difficulties through a camping experience, is looking for a new home and has shown an interest in the TreeTops site.

  • Fire department grateful for support

    The members of McDonald Green Fire Department and the Ladies Auxiliary would like to thank everyone in Lancaster County, who supported our annual barbecue on Saturday, March 1.

    It’s a good time to visit your local fire station and meet your volunteers.

    We hope you enjoyed it and will continue to support us and other fire departments in the future.

  • Mulvaney missed mark on economy

    I appreciate the hard work that U.S. Rep. Mick Mulvaney provides in Washington on behalf of the citizens of South Carolina and I believe that he is earnest  in his views of what it takes to be successful in today’s world.

    However, I take exception with some of his views in his recent column in the Feb. 9 edition of The Lancaster News, “Why people don’t like politicians.”

  • Winthrop should stick to education, not football

    Now Winthrop University is thinking about adding football to their course offerings.

    Why in heaven’s name do the taxpayers of South Carolina need another football program? 

    I realize Winthrop has the stigma of being labeled a girls school, but wouldn’t a college dedicated to education serve us better?

    Adding new facilities, coaching staff, scholarships and conference membership during difficult times just doesn’t seem a wise choice.

  • Vegetarians live longer

    A recent issue of Time magazine cites several reasons for vegetarians living longer. The article was prompted by a report in American Medical Association’s Internal Medicine that a vegetarian diet lowers blood pressure, a key factor in risk of heart failure and stroke.

    I have been following Indian Land Warriors sports since the late 1960s. 

    The Feb. 26 boys basketball game was the most exciting game I’ve ever seen. 

    Tied with 5 seconds to play, the Warriors got a good call and scored as time ran off the clock. 

    I was disappointed the athletic director and police attempted to keep the students off the court to celebrate, but it was still very exciting.
