Hopkins letter: Fascism alive and well in U.S.

The left loves to brand conservatives as fascists, yet in reality, in which the left doesn’t live, they are the fascists.
To understand this, draw a horizontal line on a paper. In the middle of that line draw a vertical line. That second line represents the middle between left and right (liberal and conservative).
Now starting from the middle line, go right about a third of the way and draw another vertical line. That line represents the Constitution.
If you went all the way to the right, that would be anarchy – no laws, anything goes.

Ardrey: Lancaster County needs sawmill

I am concerned about Larry McCullough’s attempt at deception concerning the rezoning of the tract on Riverside Road.
Mr. McCullough is attempting to equate a sawmill with a landfill. Several times he refers to this project as similar to the rezoning attempt to locate a landfill in Flat Creek, even claiming that the project is beginning to smell.

Thomas: Mom needs handicapped parking space for child

I have a disabled child who uses a wheelchair.
I have become quite frustrated here in our Indian Land community when I go to different stores, restaurants and public facilities. There are people parked in handicapped parking without the correct permit. It has become a problem. 
I was at the Chick-fil-A night where the Lancaster County Sheriff’s Office was raising money for the Special Olympics and asked a deputy about more patrols to correct this problem.

Faile letter: Here’s where your tax dollars are being spent

On April 1, I was on my way to Pageland on Highway 601 at Charlesboro Cemetery.
There was a guy on a tractor cleaning out ditches. On down the road, there was a guy sitting in the work truck asleep. I know because I woke him up. I blew the horn twice before he woke up.
Now you see what kind of job the state does. Your tax dollars misused.

McCants: Thank you to hospital’s physical therapists

I want to thank Springs Memorial Hospital for helping me, Myra McCants, with my physical therapy for arthritis in my neck.
I went to outpatient off Plantation Road. I saw Rose, Kim and met Mitch, who was my physical therapist. Rose and Kim work in the office. I had met them when Dale, my son, went to them years ago. I’m so happy I called them for my therapy. They are the best – friendly and they know how to get that awful pain to go away.

Henderson letter: Make sustainable eating your goal this Earth Day

Just in time for the 45th anniversary of Earth Day today, the U.S. Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee has made it official: U.S. consumption of animal products is not environmentally sustainable at current levels.  
Their conclusion matches those of a comprehensive 2010 United Nations finding that a global shift towards a vegan diet is vital to save the world from hunger, fuel poverty and climate change.

St. Louis letter: No one is locked out; key is your vote

This letter is in reference to “Obama locks out everyone” in the April 10 newspaper by guest columnist Rudy Schmidt.
The analogy of the suicide and murder of 149 people to the actions of President Barack Obama is tasteless. You can disagree with all that Obama has done during his term as president, but his actions and your desperation are not comparable to the helplessness of 149 persons as they plummeted to their deaths.

Evans letter: County government not responding to citizens’ concerns

From actual experience, I know you folks down at the paper really do read the stuff people send in for publication. But I betcha the things that concern the readers are rarely noted by the folks we employ to “run” the business of government.

Miles letter: A tribute to a friend

This letter is about one of the nicest guys you would ever want to meet. Larry Small and his beautiful daughter run the South 200 Grill.
When I was about 16 or 17 years old, I carhopped for Larry’s father, Clifford, who was also someone you would have wanted to meet.
I also grew up and played football with Larry. He was one guy you did not want to tackle you, as he did me a couple of times.
Larry greets everyone and treats them with dignity.
