  • What goes around does come around

    Shucks, I was just standing in the grocery check-out line with several items in my buggy and I noticed a young man with a couple of things in his hand.

    Well, at my age, I don’t have too many urgent items on my agenda, so I suggested he go around me and not have to wait.

    Well sir, he thanked me before moving ahead and then he thanked me after checking out. I thought he was kind since some folks move on and move out.

  • Afraid for my own generation

    Afraid for

    my own

    generation

    Being 16 years old in 2014 has its benefits. I could not imagine living back in the technological “stone age,” so to speak, where not everyone owned TVs, computers or cell phones. However, there are far more bad things about growing up in this age than good. The human race, for the most part, seems to be going down the evolutionary ladder in terms of intellect. Probably more than half of my generation does not understand vital things that they need to know to be productive members of society.

  • New resident loves Indian Land’s name

    Indian Land resident Jane Tanner has suggested that maybe Van Wyck could annex Indian Land. She said residents find the name “Indian Land” unattractive.

    But you are so wrong.

    I love the name Indian Land for my town. I moved here a short time ago and love the name better than plain old Fort Mill.

    Don’t say we find it unattractive, because not everyone does. I love the name and am proud to live in Indian Land.

  • Precious baby made a difference in the world

    Just think what would this world be without that precious baby?

    He made the blind to see, the lame to walk.

    That precious baby walked on water.

    That precious baby turned water into wine and fed the multitudes.

    That precious baby died for our sins.

    That precious baby, yes, his name is Jesus.

    Yes, what would this world have been without that precious baby?

  • Be sure body cameras don’t have restrictions

    The massive public reaction to the tragic deaths of three black teens at the hand of white police officers has led to a national call for use of body cameras to record and prevent any future mistreatment of suspects.

    There is ample precedent. Animal protection activists have used body cameras to document egregious atrocities and safety violations by workers in the meat, dairy and egg industries.

    The resulting videos have led to a number of corrective actions, as well as felony convictions, meat recalls, and even a $500 million civil settlement.

  • Possum Hollow resident likes name of road

    I would like to thank Susan Ferrara for saying she “liked the name Indian Land.”

    I just cannot understand why someone like Jane Tanner or anyone moving into a new neighborhood or another state would complain about the name of a road or neighborhood that has had a name for many many years. I cannot imagine doing that.

    In 2013, our Sen. Greg Gregory in his Spring Legislative Report wrote: SCDOT is moving forward with widening of S.C. 160 between Springfield Parkway in Fort Mill and the unfortunately named Possum Hollow Road.

  • Reader touts the merit of coming events section

    I would like to thank The Lancaster News for providing the coming events section free of charge to the public. I belong to some organizations that depend on the large portion of their publicity for meetings, performances, luncheons etc.

    Such publicity is invaluable to these organizations’ success. And, anyone outside of Lancaster can read about all the exciting things that make Lancaster a great place to live.

  • Young letter: What incorporation won’t do for VW

    J.R. Wilt’s guest column of Oct. 17 (How incorporation will help Van Wyck) is highly illuminating, but not in a way he intends. It shows exactly what incorporating Van Wyck would not do. Primarily, it wouldn’t save the residents from any of the ills he outlines.
    Please understand that I am not a fan of unrestrained development. Development should always be fashioned in an intelligent, planned way. I also have concerns that Lancaster County isn’t always willing to do this, especially along U.S. 521.

  • Johnson letter: America is going down the wrong path

    Whatever happened to living the way God intended us to?
    Our government used to stand by “thus sayeth God.” Our country was founded on the greatest book that’s ever been written.  
    But now, our children are living in fear every day in our schools. Prayer in school is now like a disease or plague. If you pray, you’re bashed for it.
    In our government, court systems, city hall, we can’t pray to the only true and living God.
    He created this world and everything in it. God is the giver of life and the taker of life.

  • Flynn letter: Traffic problems near school

    I have lived on Locustwood Avenue more than 21 years.
    Living beside the school (Erwin Elementary), I understand that you must pick up your children. This year, however, has been the worst ever. I don’t understand why some people think it is OK to block my driveway and Pink Dogwood Avenue. It is really sad when a few people think the rules don’t apply to them.
    Yeah, I’m talking about you, lady in the blue SUV and the family in the little black car that was blocking Pink Dogwood and would not move.
