  • Turnout positive for dementia seminar

    On behalf Senior Helpers, we wish to express our appreciation for excellent coverage The Lancaster News gave about our dementia trainer, Teepa Snow.

    We were pleased that we could schedule her for the Lancaster area. When the July 25 arrived and we saw the attendance for both sessions, we were aware that the newspaper’s advance article on her was largely responsible for the numbers.

    Our thanks goes to Aaron Morrison for the photo coverage. As always, he is very thorough on how he photographs his subjects.

  • Local Knights of Columbus support our community

    The Knights of Columbus is a Catholic men’s service organization founded in 1882 by a Catholic priest in New Haven, Conn.

    There are about 2 million members. Its principles are charity, unity, fraternity and patriotism. During the last decade, the Knights of Columbus has donated almost $2 billion to charity.

    It’s also provided about 700 million hours of volunteer service in support of charitable initiatives.

    Our local council, Lancaster, S.C. Council 10066, was formed 25 year ago by members of St. Catherine Catholic Church.

  • Opinion writers should be willing to take criticism

    This is an opinion page. W.B. Evans expressed his opinion; I expressed mine. Recently, Joanne S. Graves expressed hers. Anyone who chooses to may do the same. How wonderful this is.

    By doing so, we are expressing our freedom of speech and The Lancaster News is reflecting its freedom of the press rights. How fortunate we are to live in a nation that embodies such freedom.

  • Tax bills are coming soon

    The end of every September, the treasurer’s office mails out property tax bills for real estate (homes and commercial buildings) and personal property (boats, business furniture and equipment, manufacturing, etc).

    While nobody likes getting a tax bill, it’s important that they are sent to the correct address. Having the correct address is the taxpayer’s responsibility, and that prevents you from having a late fee due to never receiving the bill.

  • Council cannot get its act together

    One, two, let’s hope the next one is not three and out. The infamous Lancaster County Council has done it now. Council has turned many yes votes into no. The yes in the northern part of the county is lost because their roads didn’t make the list.

    The yes in the center of the county is lost because they’ve shunned half of a library and fire departments will say no because their radios, which are lifesavers for all of us, have been rejected, well, not completely, but they might as well be. Why? Because our council cannot get its act together.

  • Sheriff’s office needs additional funding

    A recent article regarding the “bust” of a meth lab in Indian Land should have all of us grateful to Lancaster County Sheriff Barry Faile, and his drug task force.

    These well-trained men and women should be recognized for a job well done.

    Lancaster County Council, which holds much of the sheriff’s purse strings, should understand, that as Lancaster County grows, so will the crime.

  • Don’t set limits on opposing opinions

    What an impressive rebuttal letter, “W.B. Evans, an intelligent source?,” Dianne T. Evans wrote in the July 27 edition of The Lancaster News. She was referring to some recent comments W.B. Evans wrote regarding FOX News and Dr. Charles Krauthammer. Not only did she attempt to elevate Krauthammer to unrealistic heights of intelligence – nay, genius – but at the same time impress us with her own linguistic artistry and ability. However, there are different levels and forms of intelligence – fluency of expression is only one.

  • Time to get beyond LCEDC flap

    I’ve heard that members of our Lancaster County Council ain’t supposed to talk or do stuff behind our backs. You know make decisions that benefit some and hurt others.

    I just wonder if they can talk to each other without breaking parliamentary rules? From what I read reported in The Lancaster News, it shore does seem like they are, at times, confused over matters. Some claim they never heard of some stuff going on.

    Is a council member in the wrong if he or she ventures over onto another council person’s turf?

  • W.B. Evans, an intelligent source?

    I am not interested in the John Lage-Carolyn Taylor verbal interchange.

    However, letter writer W.B. Evans’ remarks, in regard to that interchange, do interest me. Please note the following in reference to his remarks as posed in “Fox News an intelligence source?” in the July 16 edition of The Lancaster News.

  • Fox News undermines journalistic integrity

    This is in response to John Lage’s letter, “Lage questions Taylor’s points,” published in the June 29 edition of The Lancaster News.

    Mr. Lage, I have no intention of a back-and-forth with you; however, I must respond to three of your statements.

    One: Your lack of understanding my repudiating your statement that to liberals the Constitution is “just a scrap of paper.”
