  • Obama spin machine out to scare senior citizens

    Now that Paul Ryan has been selected as Mitt Romney’s running mate the President Barack Obama spin machine is all over the media with scare tactics for seniors. Let’s look at reality: It is the Democrat-welfare mortgage scam that has caused seniors to loose needed equity in the homes for either current living or for their children.
    Senior citizens are getting nothing on their bank savings so the federal government can subsidize super low interest rates on Obama’s debt.

  • Kudos to Gregory for stand on America’s growing waistlines

    It is not often that a politician will stick his neck out and address a problem that, although 100 percent correct, is not popular with the masses.
    Sen. Greg Gregory, I salute you. You have taken a position as a true leader and shown your constituency that not only do you recognize a health problem, but you have the courage to bring it forward to the people of your district with facts and directness.

  • Open letter to Councilman Larry Honeycutt

    Mr. Honeycutt, as an elected official of Lancaster County, you are considered a politician.
    The definition of a politician, according to Webster’s Dictionary, is a person actively engaged in party politics, frequently used in a derogatory sense, with implications of seeking personal or partisan gain, scheming and opportunism.

  • Four teams blazed to diamond success

    The summer of 2012 has been one to remember for shining efforts on the diamond.
    That’s the glowing performances of four area teams – three banner baseball teams and a stellar softball squad.
    Those teams include the Lancaster Post 31 American Legion team, the Lancaster Dixie Pre-Majors all-stars, the Lancaster Dixie Boys 13 all-stars and the Lancaster County Dixie Softball Darlings all-stars.
    Each did well and produced their share of achievements.

  • S.C.’s lost decade due to our poor leadership

    Ten years is a long time, especially in the digital age. A preschool child can grow into a strapping teenager; a tech company can go from start up to a global power; and a new idea can take root and begin to change a culture.
    In 10 years, a state can build a strong reputation as dynamic and progressive – or it can stagnate and even slide to the point of becoming an object of national ridicule.
    Unfortunately, the latter is what has happened to South Carolina.

  • We are a country in a crisis

    One day while in prayer, I thought of the woes of our country, our world and how no one seems to want to take responsibility for their actions. I said, “Lord, what’s going to happen? What can we do?”
    Immediately these scriptures flooded my mind:
    1. Righteousness exalted a nation: but sin is a reproach to any people. Proverbs 14:34.

  • Obama does not know a thing about business

    I have listened and watched this debate over President Barack Obama’s “You didn’t build that” comment.
    And after watching and listening to the debate over reported and under reported, its President Obama’s own commercial that finally made me have enough. Some of you will disagree, but that is fine. But for this president to lecture anyone is ridiculous.

  • Don’t take Obama speech out of context

    I would like to respond to Sen. W. Greg Ryberg’s letter, “Obama should stop insulting entrepreneurs,” published in the Aug. 1 edition of The Lancaster News.
