  • Henderson letter: Make sustainable eating your goal this Earth Day

    Just in time for the 45th anniversary of Earth Day today, the U.S. Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee has made it official: U.S. consumption of animal products is not environmentally sustainable at current levels.  
    Their conclusion matches those of a comprehensive 2010 United Nations finding that a global shift towards a vegan diet is vital to save the world from hunger, fuel poverty and climate change.

  • St. Louis letter: No one is locked out; key is your vote

    This letter is in reference to “Obama locks out everyone” in the April 10 newspaper by guest columnist Rudy Schmidt.
    The analogy of the suicide and murder of 149 people to the actions of President Barack Obama is tasteless. You can disagree with all that Obama has done during his term as president, but his actions and your desperation are not comparable to the helplessness of 149 persons as they plummeted to their deaths.

  • Evans letter: County government not responding to citizens’ concerns

    From actual experience, I know you folks down at the paper really do read the stuff people send in for publication. But I betcha the things that concern the readers are rarely noted by the folks we employ to “run” the business of government.

  • Miles letter: A tribute to a friend

    This letter is about one of the nicest guys you would ever want to meet. Larry Small and his beautiful daughter run the South 200 Grill.
    When I was about 16 or 17 years old, I carhopped for Larry’s father, Clifford, who was also someone you would have wanted to meet.
    I also grew up and played football with Larry. He was one guy you did not want to tackle you, as he did me a couple of times.
    Larry greets everyone and treats them with dignity.

  • Evans letter: Plenty of litter all over Lancaster County

    Yes, Susan Ferrara, there are laws against littering here. The real rub comes catching the offender in the act. Down here in middle Lancaster County, the litter problem also exists and throughout our state.
    Why, there are Bubba and the boys tossing their bags, wrappers and soft drink containers in the back of the old pickup. Shucks, Bubba don’t like junk in the bed of his truck; he hits the gas pedal and the trash disappears onto your beautiful Indian Land and my middle Lancaster lawn.

  • Cash letter: North Central coach thanks Buford High School staff, fans

    I am writing to express my sincerest appreciation of your staff and fans at Buford High School.
    On March 12, during the North Central and Buford JV baseball game, we had a player break his leg. While this was occurring, one of our fans had a stroke in the stands.

  • Evans letter: Isn’t anyone in Indian Land happy?

    Looking for a sunflower or maybe a four-leaf clover in Sun City Carolina Lakes? These are rare finds indeed.
    As a longtime opinion reader and sometime contributor, I am somewhat flabbergasted by the negative comments coming from many residents of our neighborhood to the north.

  • Ferrara letter: Aren’t there any littering laws here?

    I just can’t believe all the trash along the roads in Indian Land I saw this morning.
    I’ve only seen one sign by Aldi about adopting a highway and stopping littering. What good is that?
    The area along U.S. 521 has beautiful trees and shrubs and flowers and then you have tons of trash. This is not just along U.S. 521 either.
    Lancaster County should place signs with $500 penalties for littering and strictly enforce it.

  • Sistare letter: ‘Remember When’ a huge success

    Well, they did it again! The Always Ready Emergency Troupe’s Variety and Comedy Show “Remember When” was a huge success!
