Today's Opinions

  • Resolve senior center dispute

    This is the time of year for resolutions, and we’d like to suggest one for leaders of the Lancaster County Council on Aging and those of afternoon programming at the Heath Springs Community Center. That is, resolve to resolve your differences. Please.

  • Does new courthouse look like Winn Dixie?

    Seems County Council’s 2008 agenda includes a brand spanking new courthouse. I read there is some talk about having a vote on the issue. But we all know when the powers that be get a burr under their saddles it’s the tax-paying riders who will have to hang onto the saddle horn. So, it’s pretty much a foregone fact that a new courthouse is on the way and the old Mills designed building will become a possible museum containing some rusty textile equipment to celebrate our heritage, no doubt.

  • Huckabee not our man for president of United States

    The Huckabee bandwagon is becoming alarmingly large and should concern every true conservative who desires less government and a return to true conservative principals.

    Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee’s campaign Web site states he would be tough on immigration. However, his record confirms otherwise.

  • We don’t have to throw rocks; extend an olive branch

    Apparently, it is the feeling of a minority of people in the Indian Land community that it is perfectly appropriate to issue a threat of a $4-5 million dollar lawsuit, which if carried through, would have a significant impact on every property taxpayer in Lancaster County.

    However, it is not appropriate for any potentially impacted taxpayer to question the poor choices of those persons making that threat.

    A permit was issued several years ago for a concrete plant in the Indian Land community. There were residential units in the area at the time.

  • Gregory grateful for loyal support

    By the end of next year the voters of District 16 will have given me the opportunity to serve in the Senate for as long as anyone since the formation of Lancaster County.

    From the time I began my first campaign in 1992 people from Fort Mill to Kershaw to Winnsboro have blessed me with their confidence and support.

  • Rita Johnson was ‘epitome of principle-centered living’

    Early Christmas morning, Lancaster lost a good citizen, Rita Johnson. To her family and friends, Rita was special. Rita was a successful business woman, a devoted mother and wife, a civic leader, a wonderful friend. Rita held many offices in St. Luke United Methodist Church.

  • Holding two S.C. primaries expensive for taxpayers

    Recently there have been articles in the Lancaster newspaper about the consolidation of voting polls for the upcoming Republican and Democratic elections.

    Any time changes are made in the manner that an election is held comes under the scrutiny of the NAACP. The NAACP has been at the forefront of equal voting rights for all citizens.

  • Soup kitchen becomes a reality

    It was an early Christmas present. The Greater New Hope Christian Association soup kitchen.

    It was rainy, dull day when it officially opened on Dec. 15. But the dreary day did little to dampen the spirits of the soup kitchen’s champions – those who had the vision and those who helped make it become a reality.
