Today's Opinions

  • Honeycutt should work with Indian Land residents

    Mr. Larry Honeycutt, I am surprised at you. As an elected official of Lancaster County, I would think you would be able to handle an irritated resident with more professionalism.
    Lancaster County Council members attend many classes and conferences to educate themselves on verbal and written communication with members of their community.
    I personally helped with your campaign during the last election because you attended Indian Land Action Council, showed an understanding and interest in Indian Land and now you have turned on us.
    Why?

  • Pay attention to what is going on in the world

    How does a righteous nation get a Barack Hussein Obama as president? Very simple.
    We have become a nation of greedy, covetous, other god-worshipping immoral people. This will leave a mark that will take a long time to remove or get over.

  • Bradley column: Affordable health-care act does have some good points

    Many thanks to Dr. Lee Thomas for his thoughtful guest column, “Medical care in America has reached crossroads,” in the July 11 edition of The Lancaster News, on the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) and the crossroads in medical care that has been looming for many years prior to its passage.
    He and the hospital system he works for are to be commended for their devotion to patient-centered care, including indigent care.

  • Wilson column: How health-care act will affect you

    I have had multiple calls about how the new health-care reform act will affect us individually and small-business owners. I just finished reading the entire bill and below is brief summary:
    Individual
    The new health-care reform act mandates health insurance coverage for most Americans starting in 2014 or a penalty will be imposed.
    The penalty will be assessed on your tax return and administered by the IRS.

  • Evans letter: If you can do a better job, then go for it

    Well, I read another reader’s opinion about our Lancaster County Council members. Seems like we have a bunch who love to spend taxpayer money on building and renovation.
    For goodness sakes, we gotta make like things are going great. How in the world are we gonna bring in new companies if we look worn and shabby?
    The way crime is increasing, it’s a good thing that we got us a fancy new judicial  square right smack dab in the middle of our historical district.

  • Miles letter: We need to help officers

    Our sheriff and police chief are doing a wonderful job. But they need help from citizens. We need to watch out for each other. If you see something strange or out of place in your neighborhood, let them know.
    Lancaster is having a rash of home invasions. Residents need to fight back. We cannot let drug dealers and gangs take over. Watch out for your neighbor, as well as yourself. Women should not go anywhere by themselves. We need to check on the elderly and make sure they are OK.
    We can’t leave everything up to officers. We must do our part.

  • Wilkenfeld letter: Public not informed about health-care act

    I was raised on New York City “street smarts” until I moved to Charlotte 30 years ago.
    I have two college degrees, read the New York Times 365 (days a year). I subscribe to Forbes, Business Week and the International Herald Tribune online.
    At the ripe old age of 74, I can tell you that the biggest mistake the president made was not getting the U.S. Government Printing Office in Washington, D.C., to print a question-and-answer booklet (on the health-care act) and mail it gratis to all Americans.

  • Opinions on health-care act

    My main thought about the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act is “It’s a place to start. Finally.” This country has done a lot of talking and no acting on this issue for decades. Finally, the 111th Congress enacted it and off to the races we went.
    Sure, there are parts of it that feel like too much government. Telling people they’ll have to pay a tax/penalty if they don’t purchase insurance smacks of big government reaching into our pocketbooks.
