  • Letter: Mayoral candidates, campaign with honor

    Coming up Feb. 23 is the election for Lancaster mayor.  Several candidates have registered and are now campaigning.   
    We the people of Lancaster take great pride in our city and desire to see progress that will help increase employment, lower crime rates, and bridge race and community relations. We believe that progress will help change the negative image of our city. It will help attract major industry and people here. We are Lancaster, and proud of it!

  • Letter: Too little Christmas spirit on Main Street

    Kudos to the city of historic downtown Lancaster Main Street on their beautiful Christmas light display. They really went all out.
    Where’s the Christmas spirit in downtown?
    McAdenville, don’t worry.
    Bah humbug!

  • Letter: Lancaster was lucky to have Ellen Dean

    March 14, 1949, was my 16th birthday.
    My parents gave me a party in the elegant Rainbow Room of the Ellen Dean Hotel.
    What a special occasion. Lancaster was lucky to have this facility. How sad to see it go. Thanks for the memories.

  • Letter: Thank you for helping Miracle Bikes for Kids

    Thanks so much to all of you who helped Gonzie’s Miracle Bikes for Kids continue to provide bicycles to children during this Christmas season.
    Some people donated bikes, while others donated funds to help refurbish the bikes. All of you helped bring joy and happiness to the hearts of many children.
    Last year, we were able to provide bicycles for 83 children in 29 families. This year, with your help, we gave bikes to 91 children in 38 families.

  • Letter: One-of-a-kind nurse

    I have written a lot of letters. This one is about a beautiful lady who is a nurse in the emergency room at Springs Memorial Hospital.  This lady is a super nurse, one of a kind. She was meant to be a nurse. She treats you with respect. She is an asset to the hospital.
    She was my wife’s home health nurse for a while before she passed away in 2008. She loved Laura. Thank you, Laura, for all of your hard work. You are truly one of a kind.

  • Letter: On Presbyterians, Noble gets it wrong

    The low-information voters who read Phil Noble’s Dec. 18 column  (“Ban evil religious sect… the Presbyterians”) probably thought he was serious. They don’t know he is just seriously wrong about Presbyterian theology. Those who realized he was attempting to be sarcastically clever merely thought the piece insipid and misleading.

  • Letter: ‘Beard plan’ is answer to Medicare tax increase

    From your printed pages, I notice our  local leaders have some new spending plans on the drawing boards.
    To be fair, I’m sure a bunch of it is justified. I go along with plans to pump up  the budget as an effort to retain our law enforcement officers and EMS personnel. Us folks have to do the best we can. Holding on to trained officers is better than starting over with a bunch of recruits. When I holler “HELP,” don’t send me a rookie.

  • A Christmas miracle dream

    Without little ones, Christmas morning sort of leaves a void, and we have to eat that cookie we left by the mantel.

    Somewhere I read that folks like me may go into a depressed state. You know, stuff ain’t going like it did for so many previous years. The Christmas stories on television seem the same.  Television families have mountains of problems until the sky opens up and snowflakes begin to lay a soft white carpet on the lawn and life returns, as if by magic,  to one of happiness and good cheer. Well, looks like rain clouds over our house.

  • Presbyterians don’t vote for Democrats

    In response to Phil Noble (and I use that term loosely) and his Dec. 18 column about our cult (Presbyterians), he forgot to mention that we do not vote for Democrats.

  • We are at war with Islam

    In the Dec. 18 Lancaster News, guest columnist Phil Noble’s metaphor for Muslims being denied entrance into our country is asinine.

    Let me ask, Mr. Noble, how many children have the Presbyterians buried alive? How many people have they burnt alive? How many towns, tribes and villages have they flat-out massacred?

    How many have voluntarily strapped bombs to themselves and gone out into crowds to kill?

    How many think it’s their duty to kill all believers? How many have flown jets into buildings? How many, Mr. Noble?
