Letters

  • Correction

    There was an incorrect statement in my June 1 article, entitled “Democrats protect all Americans.” I said that voters in Lancaster County could not vote for Tim Scott. That proved to be incorrect.

    I called Lancaster County Voter Registration Office twice to verify that before writing the letter and I was given incorrect information.

    In my previous state, residents only voted for the senator in their district, not both senators.

  • Family appreciates FUMC

    We would like to share our personal experiences as parents and grandparents in partnership with First United Methodist Church of Lancaster for the past three years.

    Within these years we have witnessed the education, hard work and sincere concern shown from the teachers, staff and the wonderful Pastor Charles Phillips for the children.

    Manners and sharing are always implemented and the evidence is in their everyday activities in the classroom and on the playground.

  • Solicitor must ‘go for the jugular’

    Listen up, Tom Holland and Randy Newman Jr., we, the law-abiding people of the county, are fed up with the way justice is being handled (or not) these days in Lancaster County. We’re sick and tired of reading The Lancaster News every week to see where another crime was committed by the same thug who was just let loose on bail one week, one month or one year ago.

  • Letter writer needs class on U.S. government

    In reference to Michael Jedson’s letter “Democrats protect all Americans,” in the June 1 edition of The Lancaster News, it is clear that he should return to high school. There, in a class on the United States government, he would discover that federal senatorial elections are statewide.

    Jedson said in his letter that Lancaster County residents live in Sen. Lindsay Graham’s district and could not vote for Sen. Tim Scott.

    U.S. Sen. Tim Scott will be on the ballot in November in every precinct in South Carolina.

  • Retired law officers support Holland

    As former law enforcement officers, we are very concerned with who will be our next solicitor.

    For those not familiar with our criminal justice system, the solicitor is the chief prosecuting attorney for our circuit, which includes Chester, Fairfield and Lancaster counties.

    The solicitor is in charge of prosecuting all criminals in general sessions court. This includes murderers, child molesters, rapists, armed robbers, burglars, thieves, etc.

  • Writer: Newman has good handle on court issues

    The Republican Party’s forum for 6th Circuit solicitor was quite eye-opening. Randy Newman made a convincing case for why we should elect him our next solicitor. He has a good handle on the issues facing the circuit, knows what needs to be done to address the issues and brings an innovative approach to the office.

    Mr. Newman shows commitment and energy for the job and very honestly stated why he should be elected.

  • Writer: Holland is the best person for solicitor

    My name is Joe Catalano. I have lived in Lancaster most of my life. I proudly served Lancaster County Sheriff Barry Faile as a deputy and an investigator. I now attend University of South Carolina Law School. I am writing this letter o express my support for my friend, Tom Holland, as the next 6th Circuit solicitor.

  • Don’t pass rezoning for TreeTops project

    Please consider the negative impact that the proposed development by Mattamy Homes will have on Lancaster County School District and prevent the rezoning of the TreeTops property on Van Wyck Road in Lancaster County.

    There is enough interest in keeping this property as a camp for underprivileged children, which is the original plan and best use to avoid overcrowding in the school district.

    Thanks for your favorable consideration to keep TreeTops as a camp for children and deny the rezoning plan for new homes.

    Alfred Brand,

  • Voter doesn’t need Team Graham’s help

    A few weeks ago, I got a mailer from Team Graham, wanting to help me file an absentee ballot. The form asked for all kinds of personal info, including my voter registration number. My first thought was that information is none of your business, just like my vote.

    I have voted absentee for many years. I simply call the Lancaster County Election Commission at (803) 285-2969, and those folks will send you the application. Just as they did recently. As an informed voter, I know how to do this.

  • Democrats protect all Americans

    This a response to Nick Pasquine’s response, “Do Democrats have same response for all issues?,” in the April 17 edition of The Lancaster News.

    His letter was a response to a letter written by me, Michael Jedson, “Remove tea party burden from Americans.” in the April 6 edition of The Lancaster News.

    Democrats don’t waiver in their support of middle and low income Americans and immigrants. Republicans seem to care about the upper 1 percent and the tea partiers only care about themselves.
