  • Letter: Reader responds to MLK Jr. essay, meeting time

    I want to address two subjects: the MLK Jr. winning essay by Samantha Howie and a letter from Jane Tanner.
    I was impressed to read the MLK Jr. winning essay for Lancaster County, written by Samantha Howie. It is a beautiful sentiment, and it is attainable. It requires the difficult “inner work” of emotional and mental introspection – work which is worthwhile.
    Regarding the Indian Land Action Council, I appreciate the efforts of Jane Tanner and other council members. They always seem to be on top of the latest issues facing Indian Land.

  • Letter: Opposed to VTIL incorporation plan

    This is not the right time to be thinking of doing this (incorporating Indian Land). Perhaps, four or five years from now, it will be.
    Right now, why don’t we concentrate on getting all of the zoning issues settled?
    As to why none of our representatives were chosen for leadership positions – one is brand new.
    I totally disagree that residents are ready to “steer their own ship.”

  • Letter: Sen. Graham correct on investigating Flynn

    This is a copy of an e-mail I just sent to Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C.:  
    I am a California native, a Democrat, a retired teacher, and have lived in South Carolina for 9.5 years.
    Usually you and I are not anywhere on the same page. However, in the last week I have changed my mind. I appreciate that you are saying that the Gen. Flynn debacle calls for investigation and that if the shoe were on the other foot, Republicans would be calling for the same thing the Democrats are.

  • Letter: Thanking Norrell for backing FOI bill

    Editor’s note: The S.C. Press Association sent this thank you to Rep. Mandy Powers Norrell of Lancaster.

    On behalf of the newspapers of your district and the entire state, I want to thank you for voting in Tuesday’s Judiciary Committee meeting to send H. 3352, the freedom of information reform bill, on to the House floor for a vote.
    We especially appreciate that you added your name as a sponsor of the FOI bill and spoke up in response to concerns about H. 3352.

  • Letter: Trump will ‘Make America Great Again’

    Last week’s letter to the editor, “Americans’ blind trust in Trump worries reader” replicates the disingenuous and dishonest writings of the liberal media, which do not reflect the many successes of President Donald Trump.  

  • Letter: Become an intern at Sims Foundation

    Last summer, I was part of the inaugural class of summer interns at the J. Marion Sims Foundation. This experience not only gave me valuable professional opportunities, but more importantly, I was able to give back to my hometown of Great Falls in addition to the town of Fort Lawn and the communities in Lancaster County.

  • Letter: Lancaster Pharmacy assists mission trip

    My husband, David Jennette, and I would like to thank Lancaster Pharmacy at 108 N. Woodland Dr. for donating five boxes of albuterol sulfate nebulizer medicine to our mission trip to Guatemala.

  • Letter: Americans’ blind trust in President Trump worries reader

    I am worried because so many people in America have put their trust in Donald Trump with very little information on Mr. Trump’s background. They may soon be disappointed with Trump’s grandiose promises and then soon become entirely discouraged with American democracy.
    Donald Trump has a record of breaking his promises. His has broken his promises with all of his wives.  Trump has consistently exaggerated his wealth and business success. His personal life and his business life are always in turmoil. We must not have turmoil in the White House.

  • Letter: Kind act restores reader’s faith in goodness of people

    I hope that this reaches the kind person who recently found some medications in a shopping cart at the Indian Land Walmart and was kind enough to take them to the pharmacy inside the store.
    I had inadvertently left them in my cart after unloading some other items and was on my way home before I realized they were not in my car. Needless to say, I was more than concerned.
    Please know you have helped restore my confidence in the goodness of people and I am excited as I look toward paying your good deed forward.

  • Letter: Reader finds council’s time change appalling

    First, I want to thank Councilmen Brian Carnes, Terry Graham and Jack Estridge for voting against the proposal to change Lancaster County Council’s meeting time to 6 p.m.
    I am appalled that representatives of all of the citizens of Lancaster County would make it so difficult for working people to attend their meetings.
    Do they realize that unless you live close to the Lancaster County Administration Building, you would have to leave at 5:30 p.m. to make a 6 p.m. meeting?
