Today's Opinions

  • Set aside today for fasting and prayer for our nation

    On Thursday June 28, 2012, I spent the day reflecting on the Supreme Court’s ruling on the Affordable Health Care Act.
    Many people made a lot of smart-sounding pronouncements. They all sound great and wise. I fear they have missed the real issue. This is my attempt to address the elephant in the room that few are willing to discuss.
    America was born in 1776 in the fires of a tax revolt. Is history repeating itself? King George arrogantly assumed he had enough power to keep the colonies under control. He was wrong.

  • Individual opinions and feelings vary

    In Rudy Schmidt’s letter to the editor, “Stop believing lies, follow the truth,” in the June 29 edition, he throws  Democrats into the boiling oil and equates them to the politicians who brought about the Civil War.
    A history professor at the University of North Carolina said most Americans ignore the 150th anniversary of that war except Southerners.

  • Be safe, have fun on the Fourth of July

    The United States of America will celebrate its 236th birthday today.
    The midsummer holiday commemorates the adoption of the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776, declaring America’s independence from Great Britain.
    It is a day of celebration, from the backyard to the pool, river or the beach. Popular forms of celebration and observance include picnics, parades, cookouts, concerts, baseball games and family reunions.
    Before embarking on that special celebration, we encourage you to take in the true meaning of the day.

  • Skateboarders, officials work together for Kershaw park

    Persistence personified can be found in the group of area youth who have pushed for a skateboard park in Lancaster County.
    The group, led by Dustin Owens and his skateboard-loving followers, have frequented area government council meetings in the past year, pushing for a skateboard park.
    They’ve been to city and county council meetings in hopes of a solution, but it appears they may have found their future hopes at the Kershaw Town Council.

  • Lynch’s comments about county unacceptable

  • Justice system allows criminals free rein

    Every time I pick up The Lancaster News, I see another murder, another home invasion, someone getting robbed and beaten, sexually assaulted or burglarized.
    The pathetic (one of many) part is – it’s the same person doing the crimes over and over again. We can’t blame the officers who make the arrests – they’re doing their jobs. They’re getting them off the streets and putting them behind bars.
