Today's Opinions

  • Banning inanimate objects not viable solution

    I read with great interest the Jan. 30, 2013, guest article from former Lancaster resident Matthew Taylor, who now lives in Sydney Australia. I was going to respond to some of the items he is ranting about in  his letter, but why do I want to debate with someone who now lives outside of the United States? He obviously has issues with the rural lifestyle of where he was born.

  • Chamber honors are deserving

    Toasts were frequent at the Lancaster County Chamber of Commerce’s Wine and Stein annual meeting at the Fairway Room on Jan. 24.
    The chamber event features a host of awards for deserving folks who make a defining difference in our community.
    Mobley Drug garnered its share of awards at the meeting.

  • Resident asks school board to be proactive in planning

    Editor’s note: This letter was addressed to Lancaster County School Board members Don McCorkle and Mary Etta Taylor and District Superintendent Gene Moore.
    I hope that 2013 is off to a great start for you. You may recall I have sent numerous e-mails asking for information on the new elementary school, as well as the plan for the Indian Land schools in general.

  • Writer thanks McDonald for supporting Warriors

    Thank you Mack McDonald for your letter supporting the Indian Land High School Warriors. As a parent of a current Warrior player, I appreciate your support. As president of the Indian Land Athletic Booster Club I appreciate your support. I do hope Mr. McDonald’s letter will increase attendance of all IL sporting events.
    In addition to this year’s exciting basketball team, the ILHS boys soccer team won the Upper State title last season and is preparing for another great season.

  • Consider experience when hiring employees

    This letter is addressed to all employers in Lancaster County and surrounding counties or anyone who might read this on the Internet.
    What ever happened to the word “experience” when hiring someone? Does not a person who had spent more than 30 years working as a mechanic on cars, trucks, electric forklifts and industrial equipment have more knowledge than any high school or most college students fresh after graduation?

  • Seniors grateful for shoe box gifts

    We want to personally thank the Hillside School Class of 1970, Mount Tabor AME Zion Church, the Rev. Roosevelt Alexander, Chosen N Anointed Ministry Church and the Rev. Nina Moore for your thoughtfulness in remembering us in such a very special way with the bountiful shoe box gifts for Christmas.
    It touched us so deeply to  know that you worked so hard to make us  happy  during the Yuletide season and all year long.

  • New library long overdue

    The library building in downtown Lancaster has fallen on hard times. It’s a familiar landmark, where many folks grew up doing their homework and coming to story times.
    It is the headquarters that feeds our proud new facility in Indian Land and a thriving little branch in Kershaw.
    The library is 42 years old. Most of the furniture is vintage 1970. Shabby would be a kind way to describe the carpet and the overall appearance of the interior spaces.

  • Seniors need to watch out for scare tactics

    An organization located in Washington, D.C., named the Senior Citizens League, but not connected to the federal government, has sent out something called the “Notch Register Record.” The record promises to partition Congress to authorize a bill to make a settlement of $5,000 to senior citizens born between 1917 and 1926.
    This organization has been active for several years, but principally it wants each senior citizen to donate $10 or more to it. This is just another scare mailing to solicit money and is considered a scam.
