Today's Opinions

  • Citizens deserve better from judges

    To all of our so-called district judges – your system of dealing out justice sucks.
    Once again, we read in The Lancaster News where another career violent criminal is set loose to do more violent crimes – even more violent crimes than the ones before.
    The article about the Samuel thug (Markevious Demond Samuel) being out of jail after being convicted on so may previous counts of violent crimes makes me and every other Lancaster County citizen sick to our stomachs.

  • Fathers deserve own day

    We search the various greeting cards for just the right words. Words that adequately reflect how we feel in our hearts for that important man.
    Today is that important man’s special day – Father’s Day. It’s a day set aside to thank that man who plays such a pivotal role in our lives. He provides and protects his family. His love is unconditional. A father’s daily presence in children’s lives provides a stable family foundation.

  • Time to fix education in S.C.

    Jon Butzon is a big guy and he has some big ideas about how we can fix education in South Carolina. He should know because for years he’s run the Charleston Education Network – he’s seen it, lived it and thought about it. He knows where we are as a state; he knows what works and, most importantly, what doesn’t work.

  • It’s important to sustain hope when facing cancer

    Hope is a curious thing. It’s about looking forward to something positive and refusing to give up. It’s about persisting in the face of adversity, even when the odds and the facts seem to be working against you. It’s about creating positive energy that can nourish both body and soul.

  • KARE seeks to help others

    People who are receiving federal emergency unemployment compensation (EUC) are soon seeing a change in their benefits. The U.S. Department of Labor requires that all benefit payments for the period of March 1, 2013, and Sept. 30, 2013, must be reduced through automatic, across-the-board spending cuts to the federal budget.
    If someone is receiving benefits during this time period, there are three weeks that they will not receive benefits – May 18, July 13 and Aug. 31.

  • Obamacare will leave us in parking lot
  • Team grateful for hospital’s support

    With the end of the spring semester at Indian Land High School, we close the book on 2012-2013 athletics. All spring sport banquets and ceremonies are done, and numerous trophies, plaques and certificates have been awarded.
    We have All-Region, All-State and All-Team players in every sport and at every level. However, did we miss something? Could we have left out a shining example of what community commitment to athletics and education looks like? Almost.

  • Past time to fix our roads

    This letter is in regard to Lynn Powers’ letter about the condition of the roads in our county. Years ago, Lancaster County started adding a $15 road maintenance fee on our yearly taxes. But the roads are worse.
    The U.S. 521 bypass in front of Carolina Christian Academy has not been paved. Nor has Providence Road. Driving on these roads will jar your teeth.
