• Letter: Sheriff Faile is a proven leader

    Ric Flair’s famous saying was, “You got to be the man to beat the man!”
    Sheriff Barry Faile has proven he is the man, a proven leader. Vote Barry Faile.

  • Letter: Faile is accessible, out in community

    In regards to the upcoming election and who will serve this county as sheriff, my vote will go to Barry Faile.
    I have found him to be accessible to the point of returning phone calls, and he also attends countywide functions in varying community service orientated roles.
    I know nothing about the person running against him except he is from Indian Land, and that right there leaves a bad taste in my mouth. Let’s not give in to Indian Land residents this time. How about joining me in voting for Barry.

  • Letter: Thanks for help on child IDs

    The Lancaster Moose Lodge would like to thank The Lancaster News, The Women of the Moose and Fred and Cheryl Williams for their support in our Child ID Program.
    Also, special thanks to Maj. Bill Murphy of the Lancaster County Sheriff’s Office for his expertise in helping us fine-tune our program.
    Due to the inclement weather from Hurricane Matthew, not all persons were able to participate. We are hoping to have another child ID session early next spring.

  • Letter: Resident likes Indian Land just the way it is

    Hopefully, Indian Land does not get built up any more. We residents like it here just as it is. This is why we moved here, because Indian Land was not built up.  
    These commercial companies need to leave us alone. We don’t need any more stores because it is a short drive to get to them all.
    We like the country setting and these commercial companies are destroying the land with all their building.  
    What about the traffic situation, which is already bad?

  • Letter: Praise for sheriff after cocaine bust

    The Sept. 30 front-page headline “Huge cocaine raid at IL business” tells us why Barry Faile should stay as our sheriff.
    Thank you to him, Maj. Matt Shaw, Doug Barfield and all the men and women working with the Lancaster County Drug Task Force and the York County Multiagency Drug Task Force. They’ve protected so many young and old people whose lives would have been destroyed by all those drugs.
    We elected the best. If it ain’t broke, why try to fix it?

  • Letter: Holt/Trump debate showed media bias

    Lester Holt’s moderating of the first presidential debate was a partisan disgrace. It was more of a Holt/Trump debate than a Clinton/Trump debate, as Mr. Holt challenged Trump maybe a dozen times and Clinton none.
    We have corruption at the highest levels of the media and both political parties.

  • Letter: Why won’t county close dusty road?

    I stay on R.F. Banks Lane in Kershaw. I have COPD. I have asbestos in my lungs, and I have a hard time breathing.
    Last week, the county scraped the road beside my house. When they got through, they put the good gravel up at the end, and they put the dusty gravel by my house.
    I have tried to get the county to quit working on the road. Every time that I ask Steve Willis, all he does is tell me a lie saying that he doesn’t have the authority to close it.

  • Letter: Mulvaney stepped in to resolve a problem

    While many are losing faith in government, I was pleasantly surprised by my U.S. congressman, Mick Mulvaney.
    My family and I recently relocated to Rock Hill from Indianapolis. Shortly after arriving, my wife started a new job.  
    Her employer, as required, verified her Social Security number, but they were notified by the Social Security Administration that there was a problem.

  • Letter: Faile has served our county well

    We are very fortunate in our county to have Sheriff Barry Faile.
    When Sheriff Faile was first elected, one of his early priorities was to attain state accreditation for the Lancaster County Sheriff’s Office. When a department or agency is accredited by the State of South Carolina, it means the agency is among the elite agencies in our state, following a rigorous examination of services and administrative functions.

  • Letter: Riots must end, races must unite

    This is about the riots in Charlotte.
    I don’t know enough about the case to comment. Most of the protesters are OK, but a lot of them are using this tragic event as a means to loot and destroy and steal. This is wrong.
    My heart goes out to the families of the two who got killed. May God be with them, and also the police and protesters.
    We as white and black must live in unity. Only God can stop what is going on.
    This is to all people. Come together, and may God bless the people of Charlotte and Lancaster and everywhere else.
