• Letter: Overbrook Road overlooked

    This letter is in reference to road closures and flood barricades still up on five roads in Lancaster County listed in the paper on Sunday, Nov. 23.
    Evidently, the people that live on Overbrook Road don’t count. The road is closed at Taxahaw Road and barricaded at Lynches River going into Chesterfield County.
    When SCDOT rehabilitated Overbrook Road, they left off 2 miles. The people that live down there are being discriminated against.
    The road is full of potholes and it’s closed at the river. School buses use part of that road.

  • Letter: Israel and Biblical prophesy

    I read with interest the Nov. 25 column by Bob Lanning summarizing the Biblical history of Israel. His condensed version of that history seems quite good and quite accurate. I must take issue, however, with the last two paragraphs of his column.

  • Letter: Some French courted disaster

    The Paris terror attack on Friday the 13th is important in today’s lost world.  The French President closed the border that night to stop the uncontrolled and crazy immigration that was happening.  He did not know that the problem was already in country and it was his lost people.

  • Letter: Resident thanks police officers

    I want to thank the four men from the Lancaster Police Department for bringing me a big box of turkey and other stuff on Thanksgiving. They were from the B Shift, but I didn’t get their names.
    I’m here by myself, and they went beyond the call of duty and gave up some of their time on their Thanksgiving to help me. And I really appreciate what they did. A lot of people wouldn’t have done that.
    I appreciate everything our police officers do.

  • Letter: Fee troubles writer

    I am writing this letter because of an issue that I was very troubled by, concerning the pictures of our veterans that were in The Lancaster News during the week leading up to Veterans Day.

  • Letter: Stop being hysterical about Syrian refugees

    This is a response to Dr. Brooks Walker’s article “Duty to citizens comes first,” published Nov. 20 in The Lancaster News. Stop raising hysteria concerns about Syrian refugees. Every time the president says something, Republicans have to say something stupid, just to get their 10 minutes of air time. Shame on the 30 Republican governors who did not think either.

  • Letter: Avoid being a victim

    Here are a few common-sense actions people can take to avoid being a victim.
    Number one, lock your car and house doors. What do you think locks are for? They are to keep out intruders.
    Number two, do not put your good jewelry in a jewelry box. That’s the first place a burglar will look for valuables.
    Number three, if you have caller ID and don’t know the name that shows up on your phone, don’t answer it. If it’s important, they can leave a message.

  • Dabney Letter: Springs Memorial Hospital named top-performer

    There is a relationship between evidence-based treatments and better health outcomes.  Springs Memorial Hospital understands this relationship and we are excelling at providing treatment for heart attack, heart failure, pneumonia, surgical care and immunizations.

  • Economic growth should start on Main Street

    What’s going on with Economic Development? County Council has kicked that dog and nary a bark is heard. For some time, through opinion pieces, I have urged folks to express their feelings about stuff going on and stuff sitting in limbo.
    When I travel down Main Street, tears come to my eyes ‘cause I remember when it was a beehive of commerce. Sure, we got some merchants doing their best to get things going again, but empty storefronts cast a gloom.

  • Junkyard organizers praise volunteers

    Organizers of Mahaffey’s Haunted Junkyard would like to personally thank the volunteers who helped with this year’s event. We could not have made this event possible if not for the volunteers — from the scarers to all members who helped at the front.

    They all made a great difference in raising money for such a great cause as Toys for Tots. We would also like to thank the members of the Marine Corps League Detachment No. 1169. They did their part in making all four nights of the hayride run smooth.
