  • Letter: Americans’ blind trust in President Trump worries reader

    I am worried because so many people in America have put their trust in Donald Trump with very little information on Mr. Trump’s background. They may soon be disappointed with Trump’s grandiose promises and then soon become entirely discouraged with American democracy.
    Donald Trump has a record of breaking his promises. His has broken his promises with all of his wives.  Trump has consistently exaggerated his wealth and business success. His personal life and his business life are always in turmoil. We must not have turmoil in the White House.

  • Letter: Kind act restores reader’s faith in goodness of people

    I hope that this reaches the kind person who recently found some medications in a shopping cart at the Indian Land Walmart and was kind enough to take them to the pharmacy inside the store.
    I had inadvertently left them in my cart after unloading some other items and was on my way home before I realized they were not in my car. Needless to say, I was more than concerned.
    Please know you have helped restore my confidence in the goodness of people and I am excited as I look toward paying your good deed forward.

  • Letter: Reader finds council’s time change appalling

    First, I want to thank Councilmen Brian Carnes, Terry Graham and Jack Estridge for voting against the proposal to change Lancaster County Council’s meeting time to 6 p.m.
    I am appalled that representatives of all of the citizens of Lancaster County would make it so difficult for working people to attend their meetings.
    Do they realize that unless you live close to the Lancaster County Administration Building, you would have to leave at 5:30 p.m. to make a 6 p.m. meeting?

  • Letter: Help with research on Fork Hill Baptist

    From 1937-39, the federal Works Progress Administration created inventories of S.C. church archives. The inventory for Fork Hill Baptist Church in Heath Springs states that the oldest extant minutes book spanned the years 1826 to December 1880.
    I visited the Fork Hill Church office a number of years ago and the oldest book available was the next one on the list, which spans the years 1881-94. I checked back recently, and the church does not know what happened to the earlier book.

  • Letter: Tears and tantrums abound from the left

    When the left doesn’t get their way, they act like little babies, crying and throwing tantrums. (My apologies to real babies.)
    If all the tears cried by the Hollywood babies were collected, the drought in California would be over.
    About 70 leftist members of Congress boycotted President Trump’s inauguration. I guess it worked out better, because where would they find room for all those huge baby strollers? Besides, these congressmen and women being so full of it, who would want to change their diapers?

  • Letter: Sen. Scott celebrates Black History Month

    Editor’s note: Tim Scott is the only African-American ever elected to both the U.S. House and U.S. Senate, and is the first African-American senator elected from a Southern state since Reconstruction.

    From Benjamin Banneker to Martin Luther King Jr., and Muddy Waters to Stevie Wonder, black Americans have contributed immensely to the history, story, and very soul of our nation.
    That journey has often been faced with hardships, but has also produced some amazing results.

  • Letter: Trump must keep country together

    My name is Christine M. Taylor. I am writing in response to Dr. L. Brooks Walker’s column in last Wednesday’s paper, “Give Trump a chance, don’t disrupt government.”
    When President Trump was campaigning, he showed his true colors in word and deed. This was and is the real Trump. Let’s not try to dress it up. Yes, he is our president, but we as a people can agree to disagree with him.
    Trump has a lot of work to do in such a little time. But do it the right way.

  • Letter: Medical marijuana is a dangerous idea

    It was shocking to read in The Lancaster News  that Rep. Mandy Powers Norrell (D-44) is supporting a bill in the state legislature to legalize medical marijuana. (She called it medical cannabis but that definition is the same as marijuana.)
    Doesn’t she know that marijuana is a gateway drug? Doesn’t she know the medical attachment is just a step in the legalization of its use?

  • Letter: Thank you to staff at Youth Innovations

    This is a letter of appreciation to recognize the great efforts of those at the Youth Innovations after-school program.
    My granddaughter is a participant in the program, and she also suffers from a seizure disorder that often causes her to miss school and makes learning a bit more challenging at times. My granddaughter has been attending the after-school program since October 2016, and has made the A-B Honor Roll every reporting period since.

  • Letter: Salute to Phil Noble for Obama column

    Thank you, Phil Noble, for such an uplifting article in Friday’s paper, “Final salute to a president I believed in.”  There was not a mean-spirited word in it.
