Today's Opinions

  • Too many do-gooders looking out for our welfare

    Thank you, John Lage, for your guest column, “Don’t let Lancaster County become like Rhode Island,” in the Jan. 4 edition of The Lancaster News.

  • Whittlesey’s thinking on environmental issues flawed

    In response to the guest column by Franklin Whittlesey Sr., “What’s next? Taxing sun?,” in the Jan. 6 edition of The Lancaster News, I first would like to thank him for the Wikipedia-inspired copy-and-paste astronomy lesson on the size and make-up of our neighboring planets, as well as the shocking revelation that the Earth’s core is made of molten lava.
    Now I’d like to ask him: What’s any of that got to do with the price of beans? 

  • New majority, opportunities

    With the New Year, the first-ever Republican majority on County Council gives Lancaster County new opportunities to chart a new course.
    Led by Larry McCullough, chairman and Bob Bundy, vice chairman, look for the new council to put politics-as-usual behind and get to work on the issues that matter most –  attracting jobs, protecting our quality of life, keeping our communities and families safe and making sure no parts of the county are left out.

  • Current road repair system is not working

    Last year, The Lancaster News published a series of articles about the horrible conditions of roads in Lancaster County.
    The newspaper cited examples through several photos. One of the roads was Taxahaw Road – the road I live on.
    According to the article, the last time Taxahaw Road was paved was before 1994 and the S.C. Department of Transportation is responsible for maintaining Taxahaw Road.

  • Community helps save Christmas for 47 children

    When God closes a door, he always opens another. This was truly demonstrated this holiday season.
    During a burglary at my shop, Gonzie and Son’s Assembly Shop, most of my bicycles and bike parts were stolen and sold for scrap metal.
    I could only think of the families who would not have bikes for their children during this Christmas season.
    A special thank you goes out to Barbara Rutledge and Christopher Sardelli of The Lancaster News for the story printed on Dec. 9, 2012.

  • What’s next? Taxing sun?

    The Earth and the entire universe is massive, as well as fragile. Each planet that circles our sun has different characteristics; no two are the same. For example, Jupiter is a giant gas planet so huge that 1,100 Earth-size planets could fit inside it. Jupiter, as well as Neptune, emits more energy than it receives.

  • Bring prayer back into our schools

    What is happening in our world today? People are going crazy with all the murders. We truly need to return prayer to our schools. Children weren’t dying then like they are now because of these monsters controlled by Satan.
    We must not let atheists control our country. We must teach our children to pray.
    I believe demons walk this earth to find some poor soul to do Satan’s will. Where Jesus is, Satan cannot abide.
    We must put Jesus back in schools. If atheists do not want their children involved, then they can be excused.
