  • Letter: Holt tried to stop overdevelopment

    I’m responding to the county council’s ousting of Planning Commission member Jerry Holt.
    Commissioner Holt was an advocate of protecting the River Road property from overdevelopment that could impact Indian Land High School and Indian Land Middle School. He had the diligence to foresee that adding multiple apartments to the area not only would have a negative impact on River Road, but would add traffic to Doby’s Bridge Road, which would be unable to support the added traffic, endangering the students in the elementary school on Doby’s Bridge Road.

  • Letter: GOP never did set aside its resistance to Obama

    On June 23, Charles A. Bundy wrote a column headlined “Negativism, resistance to president must end so we can solve problems.”
    This column was well intended but short on the history of why we are in the predicament we are in nationally.

  • Letter: Time for IL to become a town

    Indian Land residents and voters, wake up.
    In March, the Lancaster County Council voted 5-2 to rezone 21 acres in Indian Land from R15P (residential) to L1 (light industrial) adjacent to the 800-home residential development Bridge Mill. The Planning Commission had sent this to the council suggesting they not approve this rezoning. Our representative from District 1, Terry Graham, voted to rezone. Shame on him!  

  • Letter: Leave the gang, change your life

    What is the world coming to?
    So many of our young people are being shot down on the streets. This must stop. Young people, get out of these gangs before it is too late.
    When you stand before a state judge, he might give you some time in prison. You might get probation or early parole.
    But when you get killed, it is too late. You will stand before the ultimate judge, and there is no probation or early parole. You will get eternity in hell.

  • Letter: English should be official language

    I have to applaud Bruce Miller on his recent article regarding assimilation and learning English for immigrants coming to America.
    I was born and raised in eastern Pennsylvania, where my father, grandfathers and many uncles worked in the anthracite coal mines. Their co-workers came from Central and Eastern Europe and spoke the native tongues of their respective countries. However, to work in the dangerous mines, they had to learn English to understand their assignments and directions, as well as for their safety and the safety of their co-workers.

  • Letter: Holt’s ouster shows council’s bias

    Once again, the Lancaster County Council has displayed its bias against Indian Land by singling out District 7 Planning Commission member Jerry Holt and declining to reappoint him to the commission.

  • Letter: Stay off Twitter, act like president

    I am writing in response to Charles A. Bundy’s column in last Friday’s paper, headlined “Negativism, resistance to president must end so we can solve problems.”
    President Trump is the main one who keeps putting fuel to the fire. He needs to stay off Twitter and act like the president of the United States of America.
    When President Obama was in office, he took a lot of negative comments from Republicans and from Mr. Trump. The difference is that President Obama took it like a true president and worked for the good of all men.

  • Letter: Candidate David Kulma needed to get his Medicare facts straight

    In his comments about health care at the NAACP forum (reported before the congressional election), Green Party candidate David Kulma said “that he was a big advocate for ‘Medicare For All’ universal health care.”
    He said that means “we would all get a Medicare card and this means you wouldn’t pay any premiums, you wouldn’t pay co-pays, you wouldn’t pay doctors. Your health care would be covered with medically necessary things. So dental, emergency services, most of the things you could think would be covered.”

  • Letter: Thanks for help with Citadel House

    Because I take pride in my community and value those who serve in it, I would like to take a moment to thank a few organizations and individuals.
    I want to thank the J. Marion Sims Foundation for supporting the Citadel House. Also thanks to the chamber of commerce, the United Way, The Lancaster News and the many individuals who came out to our open house ribbon cutting on June 21.
    I am so grateful to you all for all you have done to support this new 90-day supportive-service homeless shelter here in Lancaster.

  • Letter: Don’t blame Democrats for Trump’s slow start and media response

    This is a response to Charles A. Bundy’s column in Friday’s Lancaster News, headlined “Negativism, resistance to president must end so we can solve problems.”
    The Republicans have majorities in both houses of Congress, so they can pass any legislation they want. But the writer states that “Democrats, supported by an unhappy and embarrassed media, have thrown up every conceivable stumbling block to the orderly formation of a new government.”
