Today's Opinions

  • Jacobus leaving impressive legacy

    When the 2012-13 school year ends at Indian Land High School, it will mark the end of an era.
    For the last 20 years, well over the span of a school career for a student from kindergarten to graduation, Tamara Jacobus has been teaching and coaching at the Lancaster County Class AA high school.
    When the ILHS doors close at the end of the month, Jacobus will be leaving for the final time.

  • Liberals ignore God’s law

    When God had enough contempt and defiance from man, he startled the thousands of workers building the tower of Babel by confusing their speech.
    All those workers went from speaking one language to many different ones. Not able to communicate with one another, the tower fell into decay and was never finished.  
    Today, there are more than 6,000 languages spoken throughout the world.  
    JAARS Bible translators at Waxhaw  have done a magnificent job of translating many languages of the world into English.  

  • Community, businesses support cancer survivors

    On Saturday, April 13, Lancaster County Relay for Life held its annual Survivors Luncheon for cancer survivors and guests, an event that drew nearly 400 people.
    Because this event is self-supporting and does not request funds from American Cancer Society, it relies on the graciousness of individuals and businesses who donate the resources to make it happen.
    One would be hard-pressed to find a more giving place than Lancaster.

  • Support needed in battle with cancer

    It’s an ominous sight. The flickering glow from the candle-lit bags illuminate the night. On this night they are a visual reminder of those who either lost their battle with cancer or still doing battle.
    The dreadful disease is no respecter of persons and we all know someone – from all walks of life – who have dealt with it or are still dealing with it.

  • Treasurer committed to county taxpayers

    In the Lancaster County Treasurer’s Office, we pride ourselves on providing quality customer service to the people who pay our bills, as part of my commitment to put taxpayers first in Lancaster County.
    So we can better serve you and assist you with any questions or problems, it’s important that you know what my office does, as well as what it does not do.
    As Lancaster County treasurer, I am responsible for collecting property taxes and serving as the county’s banker, maintaining the county’s bank accounts.

  • 911 staff honored during April 14-20

    “Lancaster County 911, do you need police, fire or medical?” Those words are spoken by Lancaster County Public Safety communication officers many times each and every day. They are the words you will hear as the first step to getting you help in what could very well be the worst time in your life.

  • Writer’s purse went missing at yard sale

    I participated in the city of Lancaster community yard sale on April 13. It was a good day and I was having a lovely time until my purse went missing. I was going to use the money I made at the yard sale to have a Mother’s Day cookout for my mother, who is in a nursing home. The purse also contained my brother’s EBT card.
    The subject of my pastor’s sermon that Sunday was “God will provide.” I sure hope God provides that my purse is returned. My telephone number is (803) 283-4382.

  • Make sure your water heater works

    I just want to warn people to occasionally check on their hot water heaters.
    After receiving such high water and electric bills, I was told to check on mine. When I opened the locked access door underneath my house, I was met with a flood of water. My 30-year-old heater had broken and it looked like a spouting waterfall.
    Get someone to check on yours. It is worth your time, money and nerves.
    Thank God for my plumbers.
