  • Don’t cheat our children

    If you own a home in Lancaster County and are receiving the residential rate of 4 percent, please be aware that you do not qualify for your lower tax rates and exemptions if you rent or lease your home for more than 14 days.

  • What’s happened to America?

    Several days ago, The Observer printed an article on marijuana in North Carolina. If this is okayed, it will make 21 states that have made medical marijuana OK.

    Who will govern who gets it and who doesn’t?

    Who will govern who grows it? Why is it that we fought 40 or 50 years to keep this stuff from crossing our border from Mexico?

    The reason is that our leaders have mismanaged our tax money to the point that they are going to tax something that used to be illegal to try to ease the deficit they have created by wasteful spending.

  • Woman looking for person who hit her car

    I am a 64-year-old widow and during our recent snow and ice storm I was going to the store and was heading to the stoplight at Market Street.

    A dark green Honda pulled in front of me and hit the brakes. So, naturally, I ran into the car. The car pulled off and left. My car was damaged and I was hurt very badly. I plead with the person who did this to have some respect and fix my car.

  • Officials need to fix all our roads

    It is time our officials make it a priority to fix roads. The potholes take over the entire road. If you try to miss one pothole, you’ll hit another. We never see anyone fixing or filling in the holes. The road tax fee has increased, but we’re not seeing any results.

    Local and state officials need to take the lead in getting our roads repaired.

  • Good Samaritan came to couple’s aid

    There are still a few good men on God’s earth. On Sunday, March 9, my husband and I went to check on my mother in the Lancaster Convalescent Home. Rushing to go in, my husband missed a step on the sidewalk and fell on his hands and knees.

    I could not get him up alone, but an older man saw what happened, got out of his car and asked if he could help. So, he, God and I got my husband up.

    I did not get his name but I would like to thank him for for his kind deed. There are still good people around.

  • David Doyle of Sun City alive and well

    We wish to clarify that the David Doyle of Indian Land obituary in the March 2 issue of The Lancaster News is not the David W. Doyle of Sun City Carolina Lakes in Indian Land.

  • Grateful that Abbotts will continue therapy

    Having read with interest the article about negotiations between the University of South Carolina Lancaster and the hospital regarding the possible transfer of therapy program, I was happy to learn that I can seamlessly continue my physical therapy with Jimmy and Erica Abbott.

    They have provided me with professional, thorough and compassionate care for various problems for several years.

  • County treasurer listening to you

    As part of my promise to improve the outreach of the Lancaster County Treasurer’s Office, I’ve enjoyed publishing these updates about what we do in the office and giving out practical advice about your taxes, as well as information about upcoming deadlines.

    While it’s important to talk about what we’re doing at the Treasurer’s Office, it’s even more important to listen to the taxpayers we serve. I invite you to send your questions, comments and thoughts to me directly via email at carriehelms@lancaster countysc.net.

  • Lucas family grateful for support after fire

    The Lucas family experienced a devastating house fire on Jan. 25. The fire created huge damage, leaving a family of six without a home. Everyone got out safe, but they lost their home.

    But the community – individuals, churches and businesses – responded immediately with necessities for the family.

    We are so grateful to the outpouring of support from everyone. We thank you all. Your special ways and generous heart make a beautiful difference.

    May the Lord bless you.

    The Lucas family:

  • Christians must stand up to atheists

    Atheists are trying to keep a cross from being erected at the 911 Memorial site. We, who love Jesus, must take a stand against this.

    Atheists have their rights, but they shouldn’t push them on us.

    We, who believe, must stand up for our rights, also.
