  • Letter: McCoy’s decision ‘absolute disgrace’

    Credibility. Honesty. Integrity. Accountability. These are all attributes  that the citizens of Lancaster County not only expect but demand from their public officials.
    William McCoy’s remarkable “word for word” rendition of most of the Garner Police Department Strategic Plan is an absolute disgrace for a man asking the voters of Lancaster to elect him to public office.

  • Letter: Proud of Indian Land Middle School and all of its supporters

    I want to thank Principal Chris Thorpe and all the staff at Indian Land Middle School for all the guidance they provide for our kids.
    I feel safe letting my child out in the morning, knowing he will get the best of care.
    The front-office staff is always very efficient and kind every time I ask for help. And all the great teachers do so much for our kids. And thank you to our special police officer for the great way he keeps us safe and on time.

  • Schmidt letter: N.C. HB2 law is not bigotry

    North Carolina’s HB2 law is simple and proper – only use the restroom that matches your biological sex.
    Apple and Cisco, among other companies, are insisting that North Carolina force everyone to accept or allow people to use the restroom of their choice. They are threatening to leave the state. Why aren’t they threatening to leave Iran or Saudi Arabia, who are actually murdering homosexuals?

  • Chavis letter: McCoy needs better reason to run

    Billy McCoy has filed to run for sheriff of Lancaster because, quote, “He (Sheriff Faile) has been in office long enough.” Also, he states that Sheriff Faile has relatives who once were sheriff. What does that have to do with Barry Faile?
    In my opinion, there is no time limit for the office of sheriff as long as the job is getting done, and that it is. Sheriff Faile and his department are doing an excellent job, so why change?
    Billy McCoy, if that is your main reason for running for sheriff of Lancaster, then you should rethink this idea.

  • Letter: Springs Memorial thanks volunteers

    Author Kurek Ashley wrote: “The quality of your life will be determined by the quality of your contribution. When you work to improve the lives of others, then your life improves automatically.”
    This is a very fitting quote for this time of year, as we at Springs Memorial Hospital honor our volunteers next week during National Volunteer Week.

  • Letter: Sheriff has proved he can do the job

    I read the March 30 article about Billy McCoy running against Sheriff Barry Faile. Mr. McCoy said Lancaster needs a change.
    Barry Faile has done a lot for Lancaster in cleaning up crime. Why do we need a change? We don’t. We need Barry Faile, who has done and can keep doing the job.
    Talk is cheap, but Barry has proven himself many times over. Our sheriff’s reputation speaks for itself.

  • Letter: Thanks to backers of Easter Bash

    See Lancaster would like to thank the community for its support of Rosie’s Easter Bash, held March 26 at the American Legion Fairgrounds.
    More than 1,500 people endured early-morning rain to come out and enjoy the annual event, which featured a petting zoo, bounce houses, face painting, photos with Peter Cotton Tail, egg hunts and more. Groups of youngsters searched for more than 8,000 eggs, including 100 “golden eggs” which offered the opportunity to take home baskets sponsored by local businesses.

  • Letter: Obama cartoon atrocious, wrong

    Editor’s note: This letter refers to a Chip Bok cartoon labeling President Obama’s visit with Cuban leader Raul Castro as “Varsity” and the Brussels terrorists as “J.V. Team.”
    The editorial cartoon you chose to publish March 25 was atrocious and wrong.

  • Letter: Mr. McCoy, can’t you keep a job?

    In Wednesday’s article about Billy McCoy running against Sheriff Barry Faile, Mr. McCoy says the sheriff has been in office too long. I would like to point out that the reason the sheriff has been in office since 2008 is because we keep electing him!
    We the people of Lancaster love Barry Faile, and we loved his father Williford, who was also sheriff for many years. They are good people who stay with their job and do not change jobs every six months or so like you often do, Mr. McCoy.

  • Letter: Thanks, Joel Hinson, for coming to the rescue

    Joel Hinson with Lancaster County Animal Control, which is now under the jurisdiction of our sheriff’s department, is a fine example of tax dollars at work.
    His prompt response to a situation that could have been sad proved otherwise. He knows and enjoys what he’s doing. That’s obvious in his smile and the pride he takes in his work. Very knowledgeable!
