Today's Opinions

  • Valid reasons law-abiding citizens should own guns

    Like most of America, I am saddened with the recent school shootings across America. Loss of life is never good, and we can only wonder how those who commit such atrocities can do so.

  • The truth about Easter

    Most people now think that Easter is all about the Easter bunny, Easter eggs and bunnies. But it’s not.
    Easter is all about the one and only Jesus Christ. Parents just aren’t teaching their kids about the true meaning of Easter anymore, but they need to. Easter is all about the day that Jesus rose out of the tomb where he spent three days and three nights.
    God told him that he was to rise from that tomb, and like the noble Christian he was, he followed his father’s order.

  • World is getting more corrupt

    Our economy is bad and our world is corrupt.
    When I was growing up, life was bad. But now it seems like the world is coming to an end because people are killing each other and drug dealers are getting away with murder.
    The president needs to do something before it is too late.

  • Do-gooders are at it again

    The do-gooders are alive and well. Just read an article in that metropolitan daily that two women have a campaign to remove the food color in Kraft Macaroni and Cheese. Seems they figure the added colors are a health hazard.
    I do remember a time when some do-gooder wanted to remove the caramel color from soft drinks. Why, that was just laughed to death. Who in the world would pay good money for bottled water?

  • Time to bring jobs back to America

    I’ve read where gas is going to cost us almost $5 a gallon by summer. How have we allowed this to happen?
    England has paid high gas prices for years. So, I guess we must do the same. Yet, we broke away from the mother country hundreds of years ago.
    In America, we once did our own drilling. We had industries. We had jobs.
    Now, what has happened? Instead, our drilling, industries and jobs have gone overseas – in search of cheap labor.
    We need to bring back drilling and industries.

  • Options for care centers important in our state

    Across South Carolina, options for care for senior citizens and persons with disabilities are dwindling, while our escalating population continues to place a greater reliance on our state’s available resources.
    Helping to fill part of this void is adult day care, which gives family members who care for a loved one the ability to have a break in their caregiving responsibilities to maintain their normal work schedule while a dependent family member receives valuable services at a day-care center.

  • Writer applauds Whittlesey’s column

    Franklin Whittlesey’s guest column, “Gun-ban effort infringes on our right to bear arms,” in the March 1 edition of The Lancaster News was thought-provoking in several ways. I felt as though I learned a lot by reading his comments. Then on March 15, letter writer Robert Gilliberti suggested more research on Whittlesey’s part.
    I am not sure what subject needed clarification, but the home-schoolers in this family benefited from the firearms history mentioned in his article.

  • Craig seeks information for project

    Lancaster native and civil rights historian Jamaal Craig is seeking people from Lancaster who attended the historic 1963 March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom.
    He seeks to conduct oral and video interviews for a project commemorating the 50th anniversary of the march that will be celebrated this August.
