  • Explore other avenues for courthouse costs

    Letter writer William Hough was correct when he said Lancaster County Council Chairman Rudy Carter sounds like a politician.

    But Carter is not the only one. All the council members sound like politicians. Let's speak their language. Vote, vote often and vote the people you are unhappy with out. Maybe Washington, D.C., isn't the only place in need of change.

    It seems as if the council isn't even interested in exploring other avenues. Our famed courthouse burned, and they took the ball and ran.

  • Remember to always read the fine print

    We’re not sure why there was confusion about whether Lancaster County was responsible for maintaining roads at Sun City Carolina Lakes.

    It was spelled out in the development agreement between the county and Del Webb, a Pulte Homes company.

  • Know a candidate's background

    Even with all the crime and violence going on in Lancaster, we still have caring people. On June 27, my husband was shot trying to help a couple whom he thought got hurt after wrecking their vehicle.

    We would like to say thank you to all the city and county officers and EMS who responded so quickly to help him.

    Lancaster County has a long history of electing representatives to both houses who have made a reputation for themselves as well as Lancaster County for having good, common, conservative judgment.
