  • Letter: Noble wrong about SPLC

    Phil Noble talks of hate groups in his Aug. 25 column. He cites the Southern Poverty Law Center to be a great vehicle for fighting hate.

    The Southern Poverty Law Center did good work in the ’70s, but now it’s just a front organization for the progressive left.

    In reality, the SPLC probably has every conservative group on its hate map. If you don’t believe in the ideology of the left, then you’re more than likely on their map. Don’t give the SPLC a dime of your money.

  • Letter: Let’s pray for law officers

    I read Myra McCants’ Sept. 15 letter about her son Brent, a sheriff’s deputy killed in the line of duty 25 years ago.

    This beautiful lady has been through a lot, but she still keeps her faith and love for God.

    Myra, my heart goes out to you. And I ask everyone to pray for our sheriff’s deputies and our sheriff, Barry Faile, and for all police officers everywhere.

    I am 68 years old. Barry and his dad, Williford Faile, are two of the best sheriffs in my time.

  • Letter: Rosemont is a bad choice for Indian Land post office location

    My husband and I are in complete opposition to the proposed location for an Indian Land postal facility for numerous reasons.
    ◆ This facility should be more centrally located in the area it is supposed to serve. Somewhere off U.S. 521 between S.C. 160 and Sun City Carolina Lakes is a more suitable location.
    ◆ A facility of this size – 15,000 square feet – should not be placed at the entrance of a residential neighborhood. The aesthetics alone are detrimental.

  • Letter: Reader has questions about moving library to Springs Block

    The possibility of the county council moving the public library to the Tucker Building on Main Street raises many questions.
    One matter left unsaid in the Lancaster News article is what will happen to the current library building and property on White Street. Will another county department move there? Could it be EMS?

  • Letter: Thanks to all at Heath Springs fest

    Thanks to all who participated and attended September Fest 2017 in Heath Springs on Sept. 16. Only because of you, it was a great success! Look forward to seeing you next year at September Fest 2018.

  • Letter: Let’s all unite in conservation

    I am 8 years old and in the third grade at SC Connections Academy. We are studying conservation in South Carolina.
    It is important to turn off lights so that we can save energy. Recycling plastic water bottles is good for the environment. Also remember that planting trees is good for our health. It is beautiful too.
    I am proud to be a South Carolinian. Don’t waste God’s resources. Thank you.

  • Letter: You name it, Hillary’s blaming it

    As if the country hasn’t had enough of the Clintons’ narcissistic need for the limelight, we are now deluged with the “why I lost” book campaign of Hillary Clinton.
    She’s making sure she hits all the liberal news channels, which will never ask any important or meaningful questions. You name it, she’s blaming it.

  • Letter: Business owner goes extra mile

    In our society these days, people are always harping on the negative, so I want to share a story about something good in our community.
    Mr. Mike Gilmore is the owner of the UPS Store in Lancaster, and I utilize his store’s services often. At the beginning of August, I shipped my son a nice pendant and necklace, but the package was lost in the warehouse in Tennessee. When I realized my son did not receive his package, I contacted the UPS Store in Lancaster, and they investigated the matter.

  • Letter: Rosemont residents: Pick better site for post office in IL

    Editor’s note: This letter was sent to Kurtis Bullard, the Postal Service official tasked with locating Indian Land’s new post office. Bullard has suggested a site near the neighborhood’s entrance.

    We are writing to you on behalf of the Rosemont Owners Association. The Rosemont community is located off Highway 160 and Rosemont Drive in Indian Land, S.C.
    We would like to request that you find a different location for the proposed 15,000-square-foot USPS facility off Rosemont Drive.

  • Letter: Patriotism thrives in Indian Land

    In a time when political, racial and cultural tension abounds, it is rare to hear of two community groups from different generations and backgrounds coming together to honor our nation’s veterans.
    The Ladies Auxiliary from the Capt. John P. Monahan VFW Post from Indian Land came to teach the American Heritage Girls of Our Lady of Grace Catholic Church proper flag care and ceremonial etiquette.
    The girls demonstrated what they’ve learned at the Veteran’s Flag Ceremony on Saturday, Sept. 16, at Our Lady of Grace.
