  • Lancaster could learn from Chesterfield

    Chesterfield County built a animal shelter that cost more than $900,000. The residents there spoke up and the county listened. It is a modern up-to-date facility that has more than 80 dog runs and a cat house. Chesterfield County has less than half of the animal intake as Lancaster County.

    Lancaster County Animal Control has asked the county for a simple pole barn with kennels for many years, but has always been told the county ran out ot money.

  • Our culture is being poisoned 

    The Confederate Flag was removed  from a Civil War Monument in Columbia  because it was claimed to be a symbol of hate for the shooter of nine people in a Charleston church. The truth is that the flag was used as a symbol of hate when it was used for a hundred years by the racist Democrat Party wing known as the KKK.

    Hate for everything American is still growing.  Rush Limbaugh said the progressive, illiberal left would next attack the American flag. Even Fox News did not like or believe this statement.

  • Facts are reliable, opinions vary

    I would like to comment on Leland Summers’ guest editorial, “Confederate Heritage Group Issues Statement on Massacre,” printed in the June 24 edition of The Lancaster News.

    His timely article was very informative and very well-stated. It should serve to eliminate much misunderstanding and misinformation concerning the Sons of Confederate Veterans.

  • Did blacks have a choice to fight in Civil War?

    I got to thinking about what Leland Summers wrote in his column about how blacks also fought int the Civil War. Well, how many of those men were free to decide if they wanted to fight in the war? How many were allowed to make up their minds to fight against the North who wanted to end slavery? How many were allowed to go North where they would be free?

  • Family grateful for assistance

    We would like to give a special thank you to the gentleman who helped comfort my wife after her fall Sunday morning at Las Mariachis Mexican Restaurant.

    I would also like to thank the restaurant staff and Lancaster EMS for their help.

    May God bless each one of you.

  • Officer helps local resident get refrigerator

    Several Saturdays ago I was having a yard sale. A sheriff’s deputy, whose name is Jason, pulled up and started talking to me.

    As we talked, I told Jason I would offer him a cold drink, but my refrigerator had gone out. He said I really needed to have a refrigerator and I told him I was going to get one when I got the money.

    He asked me my name and I told him.

  • LCPR grateful for fair support

    Lancaster County Parks and Recreation is grateful for all the vendors and donations given to support our career fair, held June 15 at Buford Recreation Center. The career fair could not have been possible without them.

    We cannot thank the vendors and businesses enough. They are the reason the career fair was such a success.

  • Make sure prescriptions are filled correctly

    I would like to warn people to make sure their medications are being filled properly. I have had several incidents where my prescriptions had incorrect dosages – at different pharmacies. You need to check your prescriptions – not once, but twice – and make sure they are correct.

    It is a common practice now to send prescriptions to pharmacies via a computer. But even that doesn’t always work. I’ve stood beside the doctor as he sent the prescription and yet the pharmacy said it never got the order.

  • Solicitor’s backlog impacts community

    It is very easy for the solicitor’s office to get convictions against people who plead guilty. My problem with the solicitor’s office is that there are so many cases on backlog that concern murder and other crimes that are yet to be prosecuted.

    One murder investigation is supposedly awaiting better forensic evidence before it can be tried. This came out of the mouth of our retired solicitor. This specific case is several years old. The people involved in the commitment of the aforementioned crime are out doing more.

  • Fisher House benefits veterans’ families

    In 1990, Pauline Trost, the wife of Adm. Carlisle H Trost, chief of Naval Operations, presented the idea of the need for temporary lodging facilities for families at major military medical centers. She contacted a known New York real estate developer and major philanthropist Zachary and Elizabeth Fisher.
