  • Letter: Not all social media news is ‘fake’

    I feel compelled to tell you that I really enjoy the paper.
    The article in the Nov. 8 edition about James Elliott “Willy” Williams was fantastic for this Veterans Day edition. Truly a local hero.

  • Letter: Must slow down S.C. 5, U.S. 521

    Are any police departments going to slow down traffic on S.C. 5 and U.S. 521?
    I live on Highway 5 and can’t get out on the road to go somewhere.
    On Halloween I was on 5 and a dump truck was on my bumper from Tenacity Court to the cement plant. It almost ran into me when I pulled off to let him by. There have been three times since then.
    I try to drive the speed limit, but the trucks don’t. Highway 5 and 521 are racetracks.

  • Letter: Victim’s kin thank Buford, other VFDs

    My name is Cleavon Belk and I’m writing for myself and my brother, Donnie R. Belk of the Buford community.
    Our nephew Eric T. Belk of Buford died in a house fire in the early morning on Sunday, Oct. 15.
    We would like to thank the Buford Volunteer Fire Department’s firefighters for their heroic actions, and all firefighters from the other cities and communities who responded to this fire as well.
    My brother would like to encourage the community to support their local volunteer fire departments financially and in any other way that they can.

  • Letter: Is Archie Parnell ready for the swamp?

    Mark Manicone’s Oct. 25 article about Archie Parnell’s new campaign for Congress had me asking questions. After careful consideration, here are my views.
    Parnell takes President Trump’s basic ideas that the USA needs good jobs, tax changes and strong communities. He claims Congress – that’s the House and Senate – has not accomplished anything over the last months.

  • Letter: VFW Auxiliary thanks Talbots for fundraiser

    The Capt. John P. Monahan VFW Post 12136 Auxiliary would like to thank Talbots of Blakeney for the opportunity to raise money for our post relief fund.
    Talbots generously gave our auxiliary a percentage of its sales Nov. 10 in honor of Veterans Day. Our auxiliary members were able to talk to Talbots’ customers to share our reasons for the fundraiser. Because of this opportunity, we will be able to help veterans and their families in need.

  • Letter: Did you get your county tax notice?

    At the end of October or early November, Lancaster County homeowners should have received their property tax bills, which must be paid no later than Jan. 15, 2018, to avoid penalties.
    If you have not received your tax bill, please contact our office to help locate your bill and make sure we have the correct address on file for you.
    If your tax bill is paid from escrow, the mortgage company will gather their information electronically from us, but to make sure proper payment is made, you can forward them the information that you received from us in the mail.

  • Letter: Name new school after county astronaut

    My choice for naming the new school would be Charles Duke Elementary.

  • Letter: Concern over ILHS runners’ attire, funding

    I want to share with you my support of the Indian Land High School girls cross country program and the need for schools to continue to focus on girls athletics and the importance of equal internal and school funding support of such programs.
    Yesterday (Nov. 4), I witnessed many cross country schools attending the S.C. state championship race in Columbia. What a wonderful day and event for the kids and showing of fan support.

  • Letter: Thanks for tribute to America’s vets

    Thank you, Lancaster News, for your tribute to U.S. veterans in Wednesday’s paper. The stories, pictures and beautiful ads in the section “Honoring Veterans” were all deeply inspiring.
    We are living in dispiriting times. When an evil monster can descend upon a house of worship and massacre a congregation of the faithful, there is no reverence for God or human life.

  • Letter: Do you shop in stores that sell cigarettes?

    According to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, cigarette smoking harms nearly every organ of our bodies, causing many diseases and reducing the health of smokers in general.
    Cigarette smoking causes more than 480,000 deaths each year in the United States. More than 10 times as many U.S. citizens have died prematurely from cigarette smoking than from all of the wars fought by the United States. Smoking causes about 90 percent of all lung cancer deaths.
