Today's Opinions

  • Nebraska family looking for information on relatives

    We are looking for some information on a local war hero and would appreciate any help from readers of The Lancaster News. We think someone who has knowledge of Lancaster and local family history would be able to help us.
    My family is from a cattle ranch in Western Nebraska called the “Red Rose Ranch” that was founded in 1887. Since there is a lot of prairie grass but no roses in Western Nebraska we believe there is a connection between our family and Lancaster “The Red Rose City.”

  • Funderburk works hard for her community

    The people of Kershaw County should be proud of their S.C. House District 52 Representative Laurie Slade Funderburk.
    She is a representative who works very hard for people in her district, but she also works with the people in other districts, not from her district.
    I called her about a problem a family in Lancaster County was having. When the father of this family needed to get some papers signed from an inmate, so he could get funeral arrangements for services the next day, she stepped in to help. She was a very big help to that family.

  • This is National Estate Planning Awareness Week

    In 2008, the National Association of Estate Planners and Councils (NAEPC) worked with Congress to pass a resolution proclaiming the third week in October as National Estate Planning Awareness Week.
    The resolution noted that “Many Americans are unaware that lack of estate planning and financial illiteracy may cause their assets to be disposed of to unintended parties by default through the complex process of probate.”

  • Coy can help get economy moving again

    Voters in S.C. House District 44 have three choices in November to replace their outgoing state representative, but there’s one candidate who stands above the rest – Joseph Coy.

  • Powers Norrell will ‘shine’ as a legislator

    I am writing on behalf of Mandy Powers Norrell, candidate for the S.C. House District 44 seat in the upcoming election. Mandy has roots in our area and understands the people’s needs now and for the future.

  • Don’t overlook bow-tie wearers

    I appreciate Greg Summers column regarding the color of the ties sported by the presidential candidates, but I must point out a glaring omission. Not once did he mention the type, shape or size of the tie, only the color.

  • Northerners seek to make IL like former homes

    My regrets to letter writer Pat Eudy, who must endure the tragedy of  living in Indian Land and  be represented by only one area councilman. Makes one want to throw more tea overboard, doesn’t it?
    Gosh, I recall the days when we traveled to Charlotte and had to ride past those overgrown farm lands with only Steele Hill AME Zion Church and its historical arbor, Mr. Pettus’ store and cotton gin, the residence with the large windmill and, last but not least, the pony farm bordering the state line.

  • Sheriff candidates should debate

    It seems that our current political circus has captured our hearts and minds, as the old expression goes. It is both fitting and proper that we become preoccupied with the presidential race, since whoever occupies that ultimate seat of power assumes the most important political position on the planet.
