Today's Opinions

  • Red Cross merger means more resources

    I am excited to share the news that the Lancaster County Chapter of the American Red Cross has merged with the York County Chapter of the American Red Cross to form the Upper Palmetto Chapter.

    This means a greater strength and Red Cross presence for our residents in Lancaster County. By way of this new alliance, the Red Cross is doubling its capacity and resources to better serve the local community in times of need.

  • Super-Delegate at 21 years old
  • Residents should have voice at meetings

    I am writing about John Baker's proposal to Lancaster County Council to prohibit naming government buildings after living individuals.

    I am amazed that Wayne Kersey is too arrogant to think more deeply into the matter. Mr. Baker has done his homework and pointed out that in naming government buildings could result in embarrassment. Let's suppose Mr. Kersey is protecting the possibility of having his name on a building.

  • Anti-cockfighters seek to take away rights

    This is directed to every South Carolinian and American from every walk of life – whether you are a school teacher, housewife, public official, politician, CEO, animal rights activist, animal fighting proponent, retiree, vegetarian, meat lover, city slicker or country bumpkin.

    I am disgusted by all the hoop-lah being stirred up by the cockfighting raid in York County on Super Bowl Sunday. All the preaching that ensued about toughening the law because of all the "horror, cruelty and bad things" that supposedly goes on during cockfights.

  • Woman asks for return of photos in stolen billfold

    Woman asks for return of photos in stolen billfold

    On Feb. 12, my billfold was stolen out of my purse at the Family Dollar Store in Kershaw at 513 S. Hampton St. My billfold was gray in color with two zippers on each side.

    The billfold and the money are really of no value to me. But the pictures of my family are my world.

    Since I lost my son in 1995, I have very little left of him except the pictures that were in my billfold.

  • Initial opinion of Mulvaney wrong

    I was disappointed when Mick Mulvaney won S.C. House District 45 in 2006. Today, I feel that it is necessary that I salute Mulvaney because he has proven my initial judgment wrong.

    All too often, we voters are left in the dark while lawmakers make decisions that affect us. We may get a newspaper article or a news segment to keep us informed. Yet, voters are usually left to wonder "what are those lawmakers thinking?"

    Mick, thank you for providing your constituents with an explanation of your voting record.

  • Focus is on healthy hearts

    In case you didn't know, tomorrow is Valentine's Day. The day set aside to recognize those who hold a special place in your heart.

    It is also a good time to check the health status of your own heart. After all, February is American Heart Month. And appropriately so. What better time to focus on the most vital human organ than during the month of love?

    The American Heart Association says that heart disease is the leading cause of death in the United States.

  • Overwhelming support for Saylors benefit

    Overwhelming support for Saylors benefit

    The family and friends of Amy Saylors would like to extend a most heartfelt thank you to everyone who participated in the "Save Amy" barbecue benefit held on Jan. 26.

    The tremendous amount of time and energy provided by all of the volunteers was nothing short of phenomenal.

    We did not expect such an overwhelming response to this event.

    Simply put, the people of this wonderful community proved once again how willing they are to reach out and help someone in need.
