Today's Opinions

  • Presidential experience was a chief attraction

    Labor Day weekend was quite a treat for me, especially that Sunday.
    I was aboard Air Force One and I visited the Oval Office, just a few feet from the president’s famous desk.
    You might find that hard to believe, and if I tell you I wasn’t even in Washington, you are probably scratching your head more than an undecided voter.
    OK, I’ll let you in on what went down.
    My family and I visited the American Presidential Experience,, billed as a “nonpartisan interactive exhibit of the American Presidency.”

  • Abortion a selfish choice

    I write in response to “Activists resort to equal opportunity scare tactics” by Keith Brann in the Sept. 7 edition of The Lancaster News.

  • Smoker asks to be left alone

    It seems like every time I pick up the newspaper or turn on the television, I see something about how it’s wrong to smoke or how the government wants to curb or ban smoking.
    Do you all not have anything better to do than to frown on or criticize our habit? Some people cannot just kick the habit like others can. I admire anybody who can quit cold-turkey, but I am hooked and cannot just quit.

  • LCEDC issue proves need for change

    The Lancaster County Development Corp. is responsible for bringing new business to Lancaster County. It has been outstandingly successful under the leadership of Keith Tunnell over the last seven years, bringing in $150 million in new business and 2,200 new jobs in the last year alone. It is worthy of nothing but thanks and praise from the citizens of Lancaster County.

  • Kudos to Tammy Moody

    Boy, it’s good to see an old timey sock-it-to-em’ letter on the opinion page and not some government official’s news release.
    I wish Tammy Moody (“Local officials are hyprocrites” in the Sept. 9 edition of The Lancaster News) success in her efforts to sway local elected officials toward filling up the vacant store fronts along Main Street.
    Opening a business is a great undertaking. You gotta have deep pockets or good credit to stock a business.

  • All of the government money comes from the public

    The letter, “Every one is entitled to their opinion, but get the facts right,” published in the Sept. 5 edition of The Lancaster News was interesting. I agree that everyone is entitled to their opinion and I agree that the facts should be accurate.

  • Writer grateful for returned purse

    On Aug. 24, I had just finished shopping at my friendly Food Lion on Main Street. I got home and found that I was missing my purse. I realized that I must have left it in the police car shopping cart that my grandson, Talmadge, was riding through the store.
    I immediately got into another car and left my cold groceries at home for my daughter to take care of. I raced back to the store and frantically searched the parking lot to no avail.
