  • Woman grateful road is paved

     

    I would like to thank Boggs Paving Co. for fixing a road that badly needing fixing – Boxcar Road. I live on Boxcar Road and I am so glad that we don’t have to dodge all of the potholes. Thank you, again.

    Now, if we could just get Riverside Road and a lot of other roads in Lancaster fixed.

  • Writer: Walker’s columns creditable and well-written

    I applaud and encourage the insightful and informative guest columns submitted by Brooks Walker and frequently published on the opinion page of The Lancaster News.

    Many should – and no doubt do – appreciate the well-written, well-cited facts that he presents in a direct, creditable manner.

    In the June 29 edition, his column, “There’s a time when loyalty is not a virtue,” his skillful analogy of the Nordic lemming to the low-informed voter is of particular note in its creativity and in its merit.

  • Sen. Scott to honor Vietnam veterans Aug. 2 in Columbia

    On Aug. 2, U.S. Sen. Tim Scott will host a special ceremony in Columbia to honor South Carolina’s Vietnam War era veterans for their service to our country.

    During the ceremony at the First Baptist Church of Columbia, 1306 Hampton St., Medal of Honor recipient Maj. Gen. James Everett Livingston, retired from U.S. Marine Corps, will deliver the keynote address. Military bands from around South Carolina will perform and military artifacts and memorabilia from the era will be on display.

  • Fox News intelligent source?

    In the June 29 edition of The Lancaster News, John Lage blasts Carolyn Taylor’s rebuttal article for the inclusion of her educational background.

    Then, Mr. Lage praises television’s Fox News, which is apparently his source of intellect. Nuf said!

  • Mungo letter: Writer thanks ‘guardian angel’

    This letter is to my guardian angel. I don’t know who you are, but my mind is in a daze over your generosity. You are truly an angel who will always live in my heart. I really appreciate what you have done. May God bless you.

  • Democrats legacy is broken-record responses

    Not wishing to belabor the issue, but I wish to thank The Lancaster News for publishing the rebuttal of Michael Jedson “Democrats protect all Americans,” on June 1 as it proves my points quite well concerning Democrats – broken-record responses and low-information voters. He needs to be addressed.

  • Verify facts before stating them

    This is a response to John P. Lage’s article entitled, ”Tea party believes in the Constitution,” in the May 21 edition of the Lancaster News. His article responded to an article, “Tea Party Demise,” written by me, Michael Jedson, published, which was retitled by the editor as “According to polls, tea party’s demise is obvious.” Part of the original article was edited also.

  • Lage questions Taylor’s points

    Carolyn Taylor, I’m still trying to figure out what points you were trying to reference about my tea party letter in your column, “Constitution more than ‘just piece of paper’”in the June 18 edition of The Lancaster News.

  • Don’t litter, drive posted speed limit

    John A. Delfausse’s letter “Consider roundabouts instead of intersections” in the June 11 edition of The Lancaster News,reflects his concern for beauty and orderly flow of traffic through Indian Land. Who is gonna teach the  driving public to maneuver on a roundabout? A roundabout is a stationary merry-go-round and drivers have to exit sometime into the flow of heavy through traffic. Much like the fear you have when a vehicle is merging from a ramp without regard to the posted “Yield” sign. Sure hope the guy riding your bumper is alert.

  • Partners for Youth invests in students, their future

    Partners for Youth invests in students, their future

    I would like to thank Laura Caskey for recently writing about the Gaining Early Awareness and Readiness for Undergraduate Programs (GEAR Up) at Lancaster High School and Andrew Jackson High School.

    Six years of college-focused workshops, special events, college trips, counseling, scholarship awards and other ways highlighting the path for students to attend college culminates at graduation this month followed by the students enrolling in college.
